I'm 16 weeks along and spotting for the first time this pregnancy this morning. No exam/sex recently, so I'm a little nervous. I sort of expected some spotting in the first trimester, but not this far along. I've had a loss before my DS so I'm a little jumpy. Anyway, I have an appt. this afternoon at 3:45 and will keep you posted.<br><br>
Can exhaustion cause spotting? I've had a rough week...

Hugs and lots of good thoughts your way. I remember people saying that they had spotting when they had just overdone it for what their body could handle at the time. Hopefully you just need some good rest... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2">

Wow, thanks for the support, you guys. It really means a lot to read your posts.<br><br>
I did go in and the heartbeat was good and strong (I had her check it twice <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> ). She did a pelvic after that which she said looked good, but I had a good bit of cramping after she finished. I really hate those! She said I should watch for severe cramping and bright red bleeding...of course now I'm hyper-aware of every little thing my body is doing. But, I'll focus on the little steady heartbeat. Everything looks good for now.

I had spotting around 15-16 weeks when I was pregnant with Rachel. It happened xmas day, so I had to go to the ER.<br><br>
I never did find out what caused it, altho I had an ultrasound a week or so later.<br><br>
Everything turned out fine, but it was sooooo scary. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">
