I am at 5 weeks and 4 days and everything was going great so far. Today I am having some spotting and am worried sick. I don't have cramps but do have head aches that I get when af is about to start. Is this normal? My 1st appt with my ObGyn/Midwife is not until the 7th.

i'm sorry i don't know a lot but i think you are fine...it is probably implantation bleeding...if you had intercourse or masturbated, that could also cause bleeding, but really i think your fine... i am 10w6days and scared about everything.....can't wait til the first trimester is over.... you'll be fine!!! hope this helps!

I hear spotting is pretty normal in the first trimester. Your body is going through so many changes that it's bound to get irritated a bit. I would definitely start to worry if it becomes noticeable and/or heavy. Call your doctor if you have real worries about it as they can verify that everything will be fine. :)

Thanks ladies. I called my Obgyn and waiting to hear back from the nurse. She sais that there might be nothing to worry about but will check with the doc and see if I should go in for some blood work.

Spotting and light bleeding,is more common then what people think,especially during the first 12wks.Long as it is not constant and heavy there is probably lottle cause for alarm.Your dr may want to examine you though just to rule out complications such as,inflamed or irritated cervix(which having intercourse can cause)or a polyp on the cervix,v____al infection,sometimes can be a sign of a m/c.but you will probably be fine.I have had spotting during some of my pregnancies,and i also had spotting with my first m/c.hope all is well.

I'm 1 day shy of 5 weeks and have had TONS of spotting. Just thought I'd let you know you aren't alone. My doc says it's normal, though.

Yea, if only you can get to the 2nd trimester without having to go thro' the never ending first! ...and I am still at the start. My doc called and said it is Ok for now, but wanted me to monitor it. He said as long as it is not bright red or with bad cramps, it is normal. This is my first pregnancy and I am sure every small thing will worry me, given that I have no prior experience. Appreciate all the help I get on this board.
