Glad everything is ok. It's pretty normal to have spotting during pregnancy. I had brown spotting for two weeks with my son's pregnancy and never even thought twice about it. All three of my friends also had spotting and one friend even had red blood like a period several times (placenta was slightly detached) but all four of us went on to have healthy babies. I also recommended that my friend take vitamin E to help strenghten her placenta-- it was recommended in my midwifery textbook. I'm having brown spotting again right now at the 8 week mark, but I figure it's because this is the time I would be normally having a period. My friend with the placenta problems also had her spotting/red blood at 8 weeks and then again at exactly 12 weeks-- when her period would have been normally due as well. Gets some rest and try and stay positive.
