Hi husband and I found last week that we where 8 weeks pregnant. My first drs appt is on July 21st. (feel like it's next year). Last night I spotted not a lot but enough to freak me out darkish red...but more brown residue on the t.p. This morning is not as bad as last night .....but it's still light brown. I am not in pain and before I just had bloading and a lot of pressure in lower abdomen. It almost looks like when you are in final days of your period. This morning I was making myself sick.....and I don't want to do that b/c I know it can affect my baby and that's the last thing I want to do.

I spotted a couple times in the first trimester and am OK at 34 weeks...BUT you need to go to your doctor asap (today) to check this out. They will take you seriously and probably offer an ultrasound to check everything is OK. Don't delay. You're just wasting time worrying about it when you could have peace of mind.

I also just spotted a little when wiping first time, none since this morning, it was red, is this natural or should I contact my doctor, no cramping just spotted when wiping..Please let me know I am so worried. This is our first and I am so worried!!

Steph- sounds like the spotting I had at the beginning but you need to be sure...either phone the doctor as soon as possible or just go to your nearest hospital. You need to take any bleeding seriously but I'm sure you and baby will be just fine.

I started with pink light bleeding on Monday night of this week. I was so upset all night. It stopped by morning and turned brown. My doctor told me to come in for an u/s on Tuesday night to see if the pregnancy was progressing. I'm 6 1/2 weeks along. Everything turned out fine. I saw the heartbeat. They showed me where the blood was coming from. It was this pocket of blood next to the sac where the baby had implanted itself. They said it could take a few more weeks to clear up. I'm sure your little baby is fine also. Good Luck and God Bless!!

I went to my first ob visit the 20 and they said everything looked fine, got the babys first picture ;-) Only could see the g. sac though. Go back next week to get to hear the heartbeat and see the baby better. I'm so excited. I am 5 weeks and 5 days today. So they didn't try to hear the hearbeat since it was so early, but they said that next week we should be able to. I am so excited. No spotting since the other day just very light brownish color, but the Dr. said that was very normal. Just if it was enough to soak a pad with a hour then call them asap. So..everything is fine. I think me being a first time mom I get worried about everything. Thanks guys your input it was very comforting.
