I am spotting just a little, and of course, freaking out. When (if at all) should I be concerned? I am 11 weeks today...
What is considered "normal" spotting?
Remember, brown is old blood... and is usually caused by a some sort of "trauma" to your cervix (nothing actually traumatic, but a hard BM or sex or an internal exam can cause it to bleed, because it is SO engorged with blood right now!) There are other causes as well, but a little bit of brown/pink spotting is usually really quite benign. But of course, your MW/OB should still be told at your next appointment, or ASAP if you get the symptoms Lindy said.
Its definitely brown, only one "wipe" had a tinge of pink. There isn't anything I can think of that would cause it, except me pulling my pants down to pee and nearly peeing my pants because I sneezed ! lol. It seems to have stopped for now, so I'm just going to take it easy. MW appt on Friday!
I had spotting last week( at 11wks 3 days) it was at night after a long day. I was getting to bed anyway so rested up,in the morning there was one wipe of light brown tinged mucus.
I did see a bright red spot, but nothing since then. Didn't even have to wear a panty liner.
I didn't call the midwife but will tell them at my next appointment.
I had a similar episode with DS's pregnancy.
