Talk to your doctor. but it could just be implantation bleeding. it could be stress. Do you smoke? it could be that. it is common to spot throughout a pregnancy don't stress that will make the bleeding more, I bleed through my last pregnancy it was implantation bleeding but during labor i had placental abrasions, so most definately check with your doctor.

When I started spotting with my younger son I went to the doc and was told that I almost lost him. He said it was something about my Rh factor and he gave me a shot to take care of it. I would go to my doc ASAP... good luck

You must be 0- and your partner 0+.

you need to go and see your doctor or midwife,there could be a good chance that there could be reason for that.most women shouldnt 7wks hapu,i spotted with my girl,they thort it could of been ectopic,i had to go stright to hostipal,it was nothing,but the doctor will need to rule out all things,that what may be/or may not cant not get seen,it is very important you get checked out.dont be afraid of going to see the doctor or ringing your midwife,if you feel something doesnt seem right.being pregant doesnt all ways go perfectly,its your right,to make sure everything is going if at any time you need advice or have concerns,ring your midwife,thats what they are getting paid thousands of dollars for,to be there for their client 24/7.before,during and after pregancey.they are not just there to deliver bubs.go get it checked out,for your own peace of mind,or you will just stress.and that you dont wont,as it could do more harm than good,in the long run.go with your heart,not ya head.hope it goes well for you.take care.

well i spotted heavly with my son he is now 4 years old turns out i had a kidney infection. and due to stress was put on bed rest cus my son's placenta was starting to tear off the wall. i my self went into the docs when it began to get heavy. i would make sure with your doc that you and your baby are ok.

i had the same problem during my prenancy although i went to the hospital bcus i got really scared they said to follow up with my gynegologist bcus nothing seemed to be wrong. i followed up with him and he said it was just my body getting usedto the prenancy idk if this is ur first or not...and i also had bad cramping and it was also a sign for my body getting ready for the pregnancy. i think i had every symptom there was haha!

I spotted all through my first trimester and a little in my second trimester. My doctor said it was normal if it was not followed my SEVERE stomach cramping. It it makes you feel better go ahead and call your OB..I am now 36 weeks pregnant and baby is perfectly healthy!

I was spotting throughout my first trimester, my doctors did an ultrasound and found a subchorionic hemmorage (just a fancy word for a bloodclot under the placenta). They usually correct themselves on their own, but if they are too big they can cause placenta problems. You should definately see your doctor.

I started bleeding at 8 weeks and ended up losing a twin. I spotted during the rest of the pregnancy and had a healthy baby boy. You should probably call your dr but most likely its normal.

I spotted periodically during both my pregnancies, had heavy bleeding with both as well - 1st one at 5 weeks (turned out to be implantation bleeding), 2nd one at 10 weeks, 4 days (turned out to be a spike in blood pressure). My girls are now 20 months and 2 months. If you are really worried definitely get checked out by your doctor - better safe than sorry, and it really does help with peace of mind. For both of my pregnancies the spotting wasn't really heavy and stopped within 24 hours, the heavy bleeding for both was early in the pregnancy and again stopped within 24 hours. My doctor said that if I was having heavy bleeding (soaking through a pad in an hour or less) or even lighter bleeding accompanied by serious cramping that it was possible I could be miscarrying, but if the bleeding stops within 24 hours and isn't accompanied by cramps odds are it's just a spike in blood pressure or implantation bleeding. That said, any bleeding during pregnancy should be checked out by your doctor anyway.

When I started spotting with my most recent pregnancy, I went to the doctors and they put me on you might want to contact your OB!!
