I have and it can be quite common. As long as you're not cramping, passing clots or tissue, and it's not a heavy flow it's usually not a lot to worry about (hard not to worry, I know). If it gets heavier or doesn't stop after a few days I'd call the doctor again.

I did with both pregnancies. The bleeding was so bad with my second that I was CERTAIN I miscarried and didn't! I went to the ER and everything. Since you are pregnant so soon after your last miscarriage, it may be residual bleeding. Your hormones are all over the place, too. This is usually why DR's tell you to wait at least 3 months before trying to conceive again after a miscarriage. Good luck, hon.

some people spot throughout pregnancy. Sometimes it's from implantation.
Just stay on bedrest and keep bugging your doctor if you have any questions or need to be seen. Doctors tell you not to worry but it's impossible!!!
Take good care of yourself and that baby!

yeah, I bled and then spotted during my 1st pregnancy. Right on the 12 week mark. Woke up in the morning, went to the toilet and when I wiped myself I had blood - kinda like the first "flow" of period.

I spotted for the rest of the week. Went to hospital and got told that there is nothing you can do... blah blah blah (nothing I wanted to hear..... ie, there was no reasurances, which is something I did want to hear). I had scans, I had internal examinations (from my ob) all of which couldn't pin point reason for bleed, though all of them confirmed a viable pregnancy still.

I ended up spotting off and on for my whole 2nd trimester and a bit of the 3rd.

Now, in hindsight (yes, it is a wonderful thing...LOL)

I am starting to think it was my uterus moving and "dropping" and that caused the bleeds (long story of how I came about to this conclusion).

Your bleeding could be anything. Please have it checked out and monitored. It can't hurt but it may help if there is something amis.

I would definately go back to the doctors. I had a small amount of bleeding early on but stupidly didn't go to the doctors. Luckily he was fine but on my 20 week scan they found echogenic bowel which can be caused by a few thing sincluding early bleeding. I had an amnio as it can also indicate genetic diseases and he was clear of those. We were very lucky. I hope things continue well with your pregnancy.

Hello I went to my obgyn at 7w6d and everything looked good, I even heard a heartbeat at 162bpm and I cried because the day after Christmas(last year) I had a m/c... (At 5w) But now I am about 9 weeks and noticed blood when I went to pee, no pain, no clots, it was just there, and it freaked me out... Then when I went back to pee again, it was completely gone as if it never happened... I'm so confused... Answers please!!! I'm lost for words:(

I think that you need to go back to the doctors and have another blood test to see if your hormone levels are still rising. I had bleeding with my third child but it was pinkish and only lasted a day. I was told that this was normal even though I was 12 weeks. The midwife told me that brown blood and pink blood was ok but bright red blood was worrying. There is nothing you can do but wait now. Fingers crossed that all will turn out ok.
