Bright Red Spotting

Carmen - November 18

I am 7 weeks pregnant. I went to the bathroom first thing yesterday morning and when I wiped I had some bright red blood on the paper. I phoned the doctor but they said there was nothing they could do I just had to wait and see. They told me if I had cramps and / or it got worse to come in. I did not have a lot of blood and it went away when I wiped but I had a little more spotting later that day and a little today. What can I do? Why does this happen? Is it OK?

I suffered a m/c last week. It started with bright red blood when wiping; BUT unlike you, I was cramping. The cramping started slight & got much much worse during the day. I know alot of people spot at or around 8 weeks. Just watch closely & keep in touch with your OB. Good luck, my thoughts are with you; I know its scary.

At 5-6 weeks that happened to me for 2 days. It is the scariest thing. I had a blod clot which turned out to be "no big deal". Just have faith, apparently there are a lot of reasons you can bleed, and it is more common than we realize. There is nothing to do but rest as much as you can. I believe you don't need bed rest, but do it if you can.
