  • Thats completely normal. It's right around the time you should normal have your period and even if its not then its just the baby moving in. :) Not to worry momma. I have 4 babies and I had the light pink spotting when with my first one around 5 or 6 weeks and I FREAKED and went straight to the hospital and friends mom talked me into just coming to her hose and explained everything. But it made me feel much better.If you cramp really bad and bleed alot go to the er or If it does not stop by Monday I would call your ob but try not worry, worrying gets you no where and puts stress on the baby. Good luck momma your gonna do great, this is just the start of many years of worrying oh and CONGRATS!!

  • Well it's very possible that it is completely normal. I experienced the same thing with both my pregnancies. However if you are also having severe cramming or just want to rule out options; you can call an ask a nurse line or the nearest ER (I'm assuming the urgent care is closed). hope this helps.
