Okay, so I just went to the bathroom and I'm having some spotting. Not much but still, it ties my stomach in knots. I'm not having cramping but what signs should I be watching for? Could it just be implantation spotting? I would love some reassurance that this is okay. I remember with DS I had some implantation spotting but right now I can't think of what that was like or when.

How far along are you? Early on it sounds like.<br><br>
I say just try to relax and monitor things. If it picks up, then give a ring to a dr. I had spotting at implantation time as well as some full on blood during pregnancy. I think at 19 weeks and then at 37.<br><br>
Baby was fine. Never did figure why I was prone to bleeding. I tend to think b/c of the baby's position and just being so darn full of blood. I got bloody noses, bloody gums. I was a bleeder! :p

I had some (sorry if TMI) brown spotting with DS that turned out to be nothing, apparently if it's brown chances are it's just "old blood" -- red would definitely have me concerned, as would cramping.<br><br>
Take care of yourself, hope it's just implantation.

I had a lot of spotting when I was 4w. Mine was just old tissue coming out. I'd worry more if it's fresh/red and accompanied by cramping.

Thank you! I didn't have much spotting overnight (or sleep) and what I had was brown. Still no cramping, so I'm feeling more at ease. Thanks for your thoughts!

I had implantation spotting with my one dd. It was red to brown for 2days and then i was done.

Hopefully it's nothing.<br><br>
If it makes you feel any better I had GUSHES of bright red blood on two occasions in the first 6 weeks of my last pregnancy and everything was just fine. Scared the heck out of me but there was nothing wrong.

I had spotting both brown and red for four weeks with DS. It was mostly spotting but sometimes it seemed like a very light bleeding. We never figured out what it was, but it was the worst four weeks! The rest of my pregnancy was fabulous and DS is very healthy.<br><br>
I'm sorry you are going through this. I know how scary it is.
