I know I sound like a newbie to pregnancy but is spotting at 5 weeks normal or should I be worried? Does age have an influence on that? With my first one did not have any spotting whatsoever. Thanks all ))

Don't be worried, it's probably just your implantation bleeding. Some women even have spotting for the entire first trimester.

Wait it out a few days, if it continues go get it checked out. I had so much blood loss at 6 weeks I was CERTAIN i had a M/C and guess what? NOPE. Couldn't believe it. They do an intravaginal U/S to determine if baby's OK.

Spotting is absolutely normal, although it does not occur in all pregnancies. If you get heavier bleeding with or without cramping, you should call your doctor.
