Yes, if you are spotting you need to take it easy for a few days, also if you have any type of bleeding or spotting you shouldn't have sex until 7 days after the spotting stops. you should also let your doctor know, spotting in early pregnancy is common but doctors like to document everything.

Thanks for the feedback!
Yes. Spotting during the first trimester is very normal and sometimes spotting may go along with mild cramps. Many times the spotting is caused by your uterus growing and brea…king small vessels for more room. However if you are having spotting which continues to bleeding and filling a maxi an hour for 3 hours along with heavy cramping there is a great chance you are having a miscarriage. When you are in this situation Dr's advise on an immediate call and will have you come in, even though there is nothing they can do to stop the miscarriage, before or during, if there is a problem with you...i.e bleeding wont stop or anything more problematic happens they can help you.
What does it mean if you have a little brown spotting during your first trimester and have mild cramping?
you should be fine....it is said to be common but if you have any concerns consult your doctor...im almost 7 weeks and had red watery blood once and spotting brown since… then for about 2 days and they said everything was ok....drink lots of water and stay hydrated and take is easy for about a week. also try going on cervix rest which means nothing in the vagina for a week! it might help! good luck! -- fellow pregnant friend!
The major organs systems have started developing.
No, spotting after straining on the toilet is not normal in the first trimester. Any spotting or bleeding during pregnancy is not considered to be normal. While it could b…e implantation bleeding, it would be wise to get examined by your doctor or obstetrician.
you have to be careful with bleeding during the 1st trimester as long as it is not accompanied with severe back pain, nausea, and severe bright red bleeding and painful …cramps you could still be fine you should see you ob/gyn to make sure though
You can but you should see a doctor for any bleeding during pregnancy for them to determine if it is normal or not.
What exactly is normal spotting during your first trimester Can you still have bleeding and still be pregnant?
Spotting at any stage of pregnancy is NOT normal, see a doctor.
Yes, providing it is not heavy or very painful The doctor told me I'm more than 6 weeks pregnant which I find it hard to believe because I did a home pregnancy test a couple… of weeks after my last period and it showed negative. So judging by my own instinct and the home pregnancy tests I had been taken subsequently after my last cycle, I think I'm just about getting into my 4th week. I still feel uncomfortable with male doctors but since female doctors in my hospital have not been available, so it leaves me no choice. Should I/ Can I really believe what my male doctor tells me? Yesterday I went to the ER right after I got off the plane from a trip because I have been spotting for the past two days. At first, it was just dark brown spotting accompanied with mild cramps and bloating sensation just like a period. After an ultrasound and a pelvic exam yesterday, the nurse told me I didn't need to go to the ER again unless I experience severe cramps, bleeding and/or blood clots. The doctor said everything was fine; the embryo was where it's supposed to be and my cervix was closed but I'm not "out of the woods yet". Today, the color of my spotting/bleeding has become more liquid-like and bright red with occasional small blood clots and prickling sensations. I called the ER and was told that I could go back to the ER whenever I feel the symptoms have gotten worse, but all they will do is perform the same procedures again - ultrasound and a pelvic exam. What should I do at this point? I'm very worried that the insertion of the speculum and/or the continuity of spotting and bleeding is going to cause any deformity of the baby. I also recommend going to see your OB. No bleeding during pregnancy is "normal", though it is common. Even spotting should be looked at. DO NOT think that just because you are spotting, everything is automatically okay. During my first pregnancy, I had very little spotting in my 9th week. The spotting lasted 8 days before I finally thought to go to the ER...everyone kept telling me, "oh, it's normal." NEVER!! I ended up having a missed miscarriage and the next day my body aborted the embryo. Now, in my 2nd pregnancy, I'm having more spotting and I'm not taking any chances. I'm not trying to scare you, but rather, make you aware that although it's common for many women, it's not normal during pregnancy and it always merits a doctor's opinion and checkup. I recommend going to the doctor immediately, even if you have to make $5 monthly payments on the visit, I had it happen after 4 weeks for a day, and then at 11 weeks, i had another spot which turned into a miscarriage. that is the most emotionally and physically painful thing i have ever gone through. GO TO A DOCTOR if you care about this child. It is completely normal. I have been having light brown spotting for the past week and a half. I a had a ultrasound today and everything was fine!! I was sent this link from someone on another site. First of all, regarding the first post above, the one that states "Go to a Doctor if you care about this child" First of all, that is a horrible thing to say, of course we all care about our unborn children. Also, I must let you know that if you are having a miscarriage there is NOTHING you can do to prevent one and nothing you can do to stop one. Most m/c's happen due to the fetus having chromosone issues and no doctor can fix that. While spotting in pregnancy is common, it shouldn't be considered normal. Most doctors don't want you to come in unless the spotting turns bright red and is accompanied with cramps as well. God Bless you all and good luck! Yes. Spotting during the first trimester is very normal and sometimes spotting may go along with mild cramps. Many times the spotting is caused by your uterus growing and breaking small vessels for more room.

I had two miscarriages within one year and they both started with "light spotting". I would contact your health care provider immediately. http://www.umm.edu/pregnancy/stayhealthy/articles/vagbleeding.HTML I thought this website's answers were good. The key is to distinguish between spotting (a little blood, don't need a pad/liner) and bleeding (more blood, bright red or needs a pad) spotting is probably just "hormonal changes." and bleeding is something you need to see your MD about. might be a miscarriage. Answer Spotting during the first 3 months of pregnancy does occur but spotting red blood is not normal hun. Everytime you experience spotting you will need to contact your doctor for a examination and to make sure the pregnancy is safe. First off, try not to freak out regardless because stress will only make things worse. Second, every woman and every pregnancy is different, even doctors disagree on how much blood should be present before you go in for a checkup. I've had 3 healthy babies and 2 miscarriages and being an army wife I've had several OBGYN's so I can tell you there is no black or white on this subject, period. If you are worried, CALL YOUR DOCTOR and they will tell you their medical opinion. Sometimes women bleed in pregnancy for reasons that have nothing whatsoever to do with the health of the baby (such as spotting after intercourse) and go on to have normal deliveries. Sometimes there are no warning signs at all and the baby doesn't make it. The ONLY ONLY ONLY way to know for sure whether your baby is healthy or not is to do bloodwork and a sonogram, and the only person that can answer all these questions is a medical doctor or a midwife that knows your history and your pregnancy.
it's pretty normal to have spotting during the first trimester of pregnancy. it is most likely caused to early development in the uterus. your body is producing more blo…od to provide nutrients to the fetus. A little bit of bleeding or light spotting is very common and nothing to worry about. However, if the bleeding gets heavier and turns a bright red ("new blood") you may want to see a doctor. if the heavy bleeding is accompanied by cramps a miscarriage may be in progress. if that is the case there is really nothing you can do to prevent it from happening before or during. good luck and good health!
Generally, it is caused by implantation bleeding, where the fertilised egg implants into the lining of the uterus
The embryo moves into the uterus and the umbilical cord carries certain nutrients to the embryo from the placenta. The body systems, limbs, bones, and brain start to form.
well when i first became pregnant i had normal signs of PMS. cramps and sore breast. then i missed my menstrual and the cramps worsened. this is due to the stretching of your …reproductive organs. as the days went on my breast got more and more tender. At times i feel like i don't wanna eat, other times i cant eat enough. no morning sickness, a little nausea but nothing serious.
Spotting is common and generally normal at all stages of pregnancy. However, if it becomes heavy and/or painful, go and see the doctor straight away
Yes, most light exercising and stretching is okay during all stages of pregnancy, unless you are told otherwise by your doctor.
Spotting in the first trimester is actually quite normal. Usually it is from implantation, and can occur for weeks following actual iimplantation. As long as the bleeding does…n't become heavy, or is accompanied with cramps, you have nothing to worry about.
