I apologize in advance if this is TMI. I'm 16.5 weeks pregnant, and have had no issues so far other than some spotting from weeks 6 - 8. I have been urinating fairly frequently, but I know that's supposedly normal. Just in the past week or two, I've noticed that I sometimes feel like I have a hard time emptying my bladder - I'll feel like I need to pee right after I've finished. But now I think I've seen pink in my urine twice today. It's very light, and I don't see it in the toilet, only on the paper. It doesn't look like spotting, and I only see it when I pee. I haven't had any pain when I use the restroom, and no cramping or back pain or anything like that. So, I'm trying not to worry too much, but I'm a little scared now.
My doctor's office is closed until the 18th, but I have an appointment already scheduled with a nurse practitioner who's filling in for him on Monday morning. So, my question is, should I just wait until Monday and ask her then, or could this be something really serious that I should go to the ER for, since I don't think I have a chance of getting an appointment at the last minute anywhere around here on a Friday afternoon?
