I have two healthy kids and bled with both.  With number one, it was likely low progesterone and I spotted and sometimes bled from week six through thirteen. With number two, I had an sch at 8 weeks that caused bleeding and then a low lying placenta that caused bleeding as well (not spotting).  I had some on and off stuff in between too.  Wishing you the best.  It definitely sucks the joy out of a pregnancy.  I felt so certain ds2 was never going to make it.  So so certain of that.  And here I am holding his perfect sleeping body in my arms. Hang in there...

I spotted with both my healthy pregnancies too. I also had terrible cramping. My oldest is 6 and I'm due to have my second any time now. Rest, breathe and talk to your baby.

I had way more than spotting this pregnancy--I had a full-on massive bleed around 7w, which has happened several times again since (less heavily, but still more than spotting). It was terrifying, and I couldn't see how I wasn't losing the baby: it was a LOT of blood. My MW got me in for an ultrasound that morning, and we saw a beating heart and no active bleeding in the uterus. Since then I've had another ultrasound, which showed a healthy baby growing ahead of schedule, and have heard the heartbeat on the Doppler every few weeks, though the bleeding/spotting continues. I suspect my bleeding is cervical, though it's astonishing that that much blood could have come from the cervix.

 

So yes--it's possible! I never bled with any of my two previous pregnancies, FWIW. Sending strength and sticky baby vibes your way!

I'm chiming in with another spotting but it turned out all right story.  I had spotting at 3 weeks, 8 weeks, 16-18 weeks, 20 weeks and then bleeding and spotting at 29 weeks through my emergency c-section at 36 weeks.  Initially it was implantation bleeding, then a subchorionic hematoma and then due to my complete placenta previa.
 

It was incredibly stressful but we made it and I'm sitting here nursing my DD!  I did tons of research and it seems like 1st trimester spotting is very common.  I also found a thread on this board entitled something like "When spotting turned out ok" which was very comforting. 

 

Are you going to have an ultrasound?  At 6 weeks you could see the heartbeat which would be reassuring.

 

Good luck!

Spotted for 1-2 days (pink/red) at around 5 weeks with #1, was born at a healthy 12lbs!

Cramped and bled (much more than spotting) around 6 weeks with #3, another healthy child.

 

Spotting has only occurred for me in my healthy, full term pregnancies.

1st trimester with my almost 12yo son.

 

I think my ob handbook said something like 25 percent of women doing this.

I had a small amount of bright red blood with DD who is now 2 at 5 weeks. I had low progesterone, so they started supplementing me with suppositories. That did the trick, and I had no other problems.

I spotted with my first pregnancy every couple of weeks maybe 8 months.  It would always be just a little bit and then totally disappear.  It made me crazy but didn't end up having any effect.  Good luck.

I am not 100% on the dates but they are pretty close regardless.  I had it for some days at around 9-10 weeks (brown) and also at around 14-15 weeks (bright red and small tissue like material) for a few days and some brown before the red for a couple days.  At a scan checking for problems at 18 weeks I was found to have a possible clot and some internal bleeding and was asked if I was still bleeding or seeing any blood.  I have some other things going on pregnancy health wise so I go to the doctor often, get shots, and have restrictions on activity.  Baby has looked great at every scan.

I had brown spotting with every pregnancy and with one miscarriage as well. The only difference with the MC was I never got morning sickness AT ALL. I had cramping with every healthy pregnancy as well but none with the miscarriage---even while having the miscarriage.

I spotted at least twice a week, sometimes fairly heavily, from 6 weeks to 15 weeks, and my little boy is still happily swimming around in there, verified by ultrasound, at 20w. joy.gif

pretty common to show at that point in a pregnancy. 

if it means anything to you i bled the forst 5 months of my pregnancy with my son. and on and off the entire pregnancy with my daughter. both are healthy. blood doesnt always have to mean something negative hun. my fingers and toes are crossed for you!

 

i had 4 m/c before i got lucky enough to have 2 healthy children.

I bled at 9 weeks and had an ultrasound as it was my first and everything looked fine.  I continued to spot on and off for the next few weeks.  This may seem really odd but a definite correlation to the bleeding/spotting was caffeine.  I had cut out all tea and coffee when I became pregnant but I was still eating chocolate every once in a while. Whenever I ate the chocolate I would bleed/spot the following day.  As soon as I figured out the correlation I cut out chocolate as well.  Everything turned out fine and my sweet 3 yo dd is here and perfectly healthy!

 

Best wishes to you Mama just keep being positive!

I had very consistent spotting up until about 20 weeks with my current pregnancy (#2 and currently at 38+weeks pregnant). Almost every day I would find something on the pantyliner and every prenatal visit I told the midwife. With the amount of spotting (I only used one pantyliner per day) and that there was no cramping or discomfort really said to me and the midwife that it was not a big deal. Every midwife visit has been perfect. I have a perfectly healthy baby.

My mom also had some pretty severe bleeding when she was pregnant with me. With her, it was placenta previa that corrected naturally after a fair amount of time. If I remember correctly, she bled quite a lot for most of the pregnancy. I turned out fine.

I had some spotting around 12 weeks.  I was really scared because I am 45 and a high risk pregnancy.  Turned out to be nothing but a polyp on my vagina. It was easily and painlessly removed with no anesthisia needed.  Withing 2 hours their was no more bleeding or cramping.  Completely resolved.  Baby never in any danger.
