Spotting is not an early sign of pregnancy. About 30% of women have implantation spotting for one or two days either just before or around the time of a missed period but any spotting other than this is abnormal and you should see a doctor.


Spotting isn't normal but it can happen in pregnancy. It puts more risk on your baby cause it can cause miscarriages cause some women who have bleeding while pregnant get miscarriages others are lucky and there baby survived it. It depends on your body and not all women get spotting or Implantation bleeding. The pregnancy bleeding is nothing like a period its much lighter. Implantation bleeding can last from 1-2 days. spotting can last a few days to 6 days.

Is spotting normal during pregnancy whike you have a uti?

I just came back home from the hospital. I went in for vaginal spotting. Doctor confirmed my pregnancy (6/7 Ala along) and said that spotting during early pregnancy is fairly common as long as its not accompanied by chills, fever, heavy bleeding with or without blood clots. I tested positive for a UTI and doc stated that the spotting could be from that. He put me antibiotics for a week. I have no UTI symptoms besides the spotting and twitched/vibrations around uterus. Good luck.
