I wouldn't worry too much, as long as it is JUST SPOTTING. If it turns into a period like flow, accompanied by moderate/heavy cramps, then you need to worry. With my first pregnancy, I spotted when I was about 8/9 weeks, and my docotor a__sured me it was totally normal. Your blood volume increases so much while you are preggers, that something as simple as sneezing or coughing can cause you to spot. Like I said spotting and a light cramping can be normal, as long as it doesn't turn into a heavy flow. When I m/c, I didn't have any warning signs, I just started bleeding, heavy. So I wouldn't worry too much.

It's really scary bleeding when you are pregnant. I had 2 x m/c in 2004/5...one with spotting, the other heavier bleeding. BUT am now 36weeks pg with 3rd try and had MORE bleeding at 6 and 12 weeks than with either m/c!!! It was scary but when they did the u/s both times in this pregnancy, there was a heartbeat and I couldn't believe it. Check with the dr to be sure. I'm from England and we have an early pregnancy unit at the hospital you can go to, where they will do an early scan. Just wanted to share that with you and also to let you anyone reading who's had one or more m/c's, that it IS still possible to have a successful pregnancy and that bleeding does NOT always mean you will miscarry. hope this helps and good luck :)
