I'm 8 weeks pregnant and for the last 2 days I have had very light spotting in the evenings. It's not constant just 1 time each day and I'm scared. I called the doctor and I went in for blood test and have to wait...I know this is a sign of a threated miscarage but people make it safe and sound...right? I really want this baby, can anyone lend me a word?

Light spotting can be normal in pregnancies, if its accomanied w/pain then i would be more concerned. Wait til your appt., if it should get worse, go into the ER then there u will get resukts right away, good luck :-)

I had spotting at weeks-7, and actually had my first spotting the moment I took my pregnancy test. Had ultrasound done, which showed heartbeat. A couple of days later I pa__sed some brown stringy discharge, almost a clot, and had another clear ultrasound after that. They said it was just implantation bleeding. I'm now at week 14, and still nervous and anxious, about different things now!

I am now 10 weeks and have been spotting for the last 3 weeks. I have had 2 u/s and everything was fine prog. was a little low and hcg was normal no cervical inf. but I am still spotting some days nothing some daus brown to red. Doc can not find a problem. But I am worried because it semmed to go away for about 4 to 5 days and started again red spotting a little stringy discharge never any cramps though. Can anyone offer any answers?

I am also 8 weeks pregnant and spotting and with slight cramps. My OB-gyn said although possibly indicative of a threatened miscarriage, he sees the same thing in lots of his patients. His advice is to take it easy, feet up, rest, and no heavy lifting.

I am 10 weeks pregnant and have been spotting off and on for over a month. I had an u/s 3 wks ago and it shows a normal fetus with heartbeat. I also have had two previous miscarriages in the last year. My doc said to just relax and not stress myself out so i would say everything will be fine. I wish you the best of luck!!!

I am also 8 weeks pregnant and spotting. I am scared. Very light cramping, and brownish discharge. Is this common?? Please help!

Hey candiceb, I think brownish dicharge is 'normal', but if it turns red I would be a bit concerned. I would call your dr for sure anyways. I even think the embryo implants deeper into the uterus around the 8-9 week point, making some women spot. Good luck.

Hi, I have 6 weeks, last wednesday I had my second u/s and showed a heartbeat, which the doctor says it's a good sign...but this morning (saturday) when I got up and went to the bathroom and wipe off there was light red on the toilet paper, of course I got scared and worried that it might be a sign of miscarriage, so I called the nurse and she asked if I had pain while I urinate and I said no, and she asked me when was the last time I had s_x, I said more than a week, so she just told me, not to have s_x yet til I see the doctor and to rest. But reading a lot of your posts from this site and others I see that in most women is normal...and that has calmed me down big time, now monday I will have to call the doctor and schedule an appt. I will keep you all updated and see what the doctor told me, it might help some of you that are going through the same thing. God Bless You all and best wishes!

I am 7 1/2 weeks and I have been spotting since I found out I was preg. I actually didn't realize I was preg because of the spotting. Needless to say this has not been the joyfull experience I was hoping for. I am woried sick. The spotting started out light pink or brown as of yesterday it has turned red. Its very faint and no cramping. The two periods before I got pregnant I spotted for a week before I really started???? I did have an u/s last week that showed normal with a heartbeat. I have expressed my concern to my Dr. but they just say take it easy and wait and see. They haven't even offered to do a blood test. My next appointment isn't until the 18th. I hope we both make it till then!

Good Luck to you Linda....I know how u feeling...my next appt. is the 20th....but still I will call monday, even though I know they're not gonna schedule me right away, so I will still be so worry until hearing from the doc. that everything is ok....u know, this is my first pregnancy....im 27 now....when i got married i was 17 going 18....lasted 5yrs married and never never got pregnant....then i had a couple of relationships after and nothing either....and they all had kids, so for sure i always thought that i had the problem which i still believe it because with my boyfriend we've been together for 1yr. already and we dont use protection and look now when i really got pregnant, so as u can c its really hard for me to get pregnant and thats why i try to take care of myself as much as i can, i even left my job because the kind of job that i used to do i can't do it now, which is a lot of lifting, pulling, pushing, climbing...etc..etc...and im trying to relax, but its so hard sometimes with the worry thinking if everything is gonna be alright with the baby through out the whole pregnancy....lets pray God so He can take care of us and our babies.... ;-)

I am very scared for my new baby and my wife. My wife noticed about a centimeter of spotting when she used the restroom on her tissue after urinating. It was very hard to see, but it was there. The first time we noticed this she was at eight weeks. She has noticed this about three times through weeks 8-11. It is less than one inch, it is very hard to see, but it is spotting. She can see it, than it goes away for three or four days, and than comes back just once three or so days later. We have not had intercourse or anything else. She has never had morning sickness, but she is bloated a lot, tired all the time, and has signs that she is continuing her pregnancy. The doctors MA said it should be fine and not to come in unless it becomes thick and or bright red. She does not have cramping, just this centimeter of spotting every three days or so, and only once in the day when it re-appears. Do you think she is going to miscarry, or is it that this small amount of spotting is normal, epically since it comes like only every three days? I am scared for my wife and baby! I would appreciate any help. ?

Well here is my story....remember that I had my appt. for the 20th? because of my spotting that started 6/2 which was a saturday....it continue like that ligh red and brown, lets say it was old blood. well since thursday it turns to look like a normal period with blood clots but they were small, it continued like that til I went this sunday to er because I was too worry, cause before I had called the nurse and they said its normal unless is bleeding with cramps, and I had no cramps at all....so sunday I went they took blood test and everything came out great, even the ultrasound I could see the baby with his heartbeat which by the way, on sunday I was 8 weeks....well since everything was ok, except like they always say there's a 50/50 chance of miscarriage and to contact my ob/gyn inmediately....well next they yesterday (monday) I was still sleeping when I felt I pa__sed a big clot, and yes when I went to the bathroom I had pa__sed 2 big huge clots, then the bleeding wouldn;t stop and I had no idea how many blood clots I pa__sed in one hour...I would take a shower and when I get out I start to get dress as fast as I can, I couldnt because the bleeding was so much that it wouldnt give me a chance to put at least my panties on....so I finally did it, went to er again, by the time I got there, the blood has pa__sed through my panties and my pants, for some reason I wore black....when they took me in and checked me the doctor say it looked like I was going to miscarry, because the blood was so bright red, that color u only see it on labor, it was too bright and u just get the feeling that something wasnt right, so the doc with the finger she checked the cervix and she say the cervix gets soft at labor and mine was soft...plus my hcg had dropped from the night before and when they did the ultrasound no sign that there was a baby, everything was gone, the sac, no nothing, and she asked me if I wanted a D&C done or just go naturally and I preferred to go naturally. the only thing I will have to go a few times to the clinic so they can do an hcg til they drop to 0....but let me tell you is the worst thing a woman can live, because you already create a future for you and that baby, and just seen the baby's heart beats on the ultrasound its wao....but like my boyfriend says the MASTER knows what he's doing, HE never makes no mistakes, and this wasnt our time....now I do want to wait a good while and just continue on life like me and my boyfriend had planned before the baby. because to be honest im so afraid of going through this again and you know I take it this way, when I got married I was 17, was 5yrs married never used protection w/ex husband and never got pregnant after that I had my boyfriends and the same thing, now Im 27 and with the love of my life, we've been together for one year and just a month before our 1st anniversary we found out I was pregnant, so I take this loss in a good way also, that God let me know that I do can conceive when I thought all this years that I couldnt. God Bless You All.
