Spotting After Dr Visit

Today I had my first internal exam at the Dr. office, and when I came home I noticed a little bit of spotting, I"m thinking it's from the Dr. exam and that I"m not in labor... Did anyone have a similar experience?

Most likely when you had your internal, your doc irritated your cervix, which can cause some spotting. Hope you go into labor soon!! :o)

Doc told me that spotting could be possible so not to freak out.

I have always heard it is normal after an exam at any time during the pregancy. I had an exam at 6 weeks and 5 days that I thought I was miscarrying but it was just from the exam and now I am almost 36 weeks. It is scary when it happens early but it is normal at anytime. You can always call your doctor for reasurance.

TOTALLY NORMAL.. My doctor still reminds me after every appt that she checks me... "now remember, you may spot for a while after this and it is totally normal". I also spotted after intercourse one time and she says totally normal.. hope this eases your mind.
