Spotting during pregnancy can occur about the time you would usually have a period. However, with a miscarriage there is more active bleeding and tissue is passed with abdominal cramping. Just spotting does not indicate a miscarriage.

Possible. If you're not just starting your period , then it could be an infection or possibly miscarriage.

Hello. No this doesn't mean its a miscarriage hun. Miscarriage bleeding is usually heavy, red and very painful cramping. Its most likely early pregnancy spotting or spotting due to a UTI.

Spotting, bleeding and cramping. Make sure you are seen by a medical professional if you feel like you are having a miscarriage.

Yes, you can be spotting and be pregnant. It is called implantation bleeding. It usually occurs about 8-9 days after ovulation, which is around the time of your period. If you definitively know that you are pregnant, then spotting when you know that you are pregnant is also normal. As the cell mass grows, then it can break tiny blood vessels and cause spotting. However, if the spotting intensifies and is accompanied by cramping, get it checked out as these are the precursors to miscarriage. Take a pregnancy test and see your doctor to know for sure.

Actually, it is NOT normal to have cramping especially if it is accompanied by bleeding. If you experience spotting and cramping, consult your doctor immediately.

If you only had light spotting and a bit of cramping and it has all stopped you may be pregnant.

I understand that disappearing pregnancy symptoms so early in the game can be daunting. This could be a sign of a miscarriage, yes but see your OB to make sure everything is alright via a ultra sound. Often times in pregnancy brown spotting ( old blood) are accompanied by some light cramping (round ligament pain) as the uterus grows and expands compensating for the growing fetus/embryo. See your OB right away if you are bleeding (red) or concerned. Brown spotting is not miscarriage spotting sweetheart. Miscarriage bleeding is usually very red blood, clot or tissue in the blood and very severe cramping/abdominal pains. Light cramping is most likely not a miscarriage. During early pregnancy a lot of women experience light brown bleeding or spotting or pinkisk or brown blood. This is old blood and is also known as early pregnancy bleeding. Its very normal. But if the blood becomes red or the cramping severe, then its advisable to contact your doctor immediately in the case of a possible miscarriage. See your doctor now for a pregnancy blood test.

Any bleeding during pregnancy needs to be evaluated by a doctor. Heavy bleeding is a sign of miscarriage, but you have to see a doctor to be sure and to be checked for your health, as well.

User Avatar

No it is not,most of time bleeding around that time, heavy bleeding is due to miscarriage. Spotting is normal, bleeding is a sign of miscarriage.

User Avatar

Bleeding isn't but spotting. If it is heavy, it is unlikely that it is the sign of implantation.

User Avatar

Is there a chance you are pregnant? if so, you could be having a miscarriage and you are spotting because of that...

User Avatar

Yes. Spotting can indicate implantation of the fetus into the uterine wall (usually between 3-5 weeks pregnant). Spotting can also indicate the start of a miscarriage. BUT many many pregnancies have had spotting (and even heavier bleeding) and still been successful.

User Avatar

It is too late to be implantation spotting, that usually happens 6 days or so after ovulation (about 3 weeks pregnant). I wouldn't worry about it if it's only "spotting". However if you begin having cramping or the spotting gets heavier I would worry then. I hope you called your doc, just to set your mind at ease.

First I am sorry to hear that you are bleeding or spotting during pregnancy. I know it can be a scary thing. Whether or not it is serious really depends upon how far along you are. Spotting in the first trimester is not uncommon and is generally okay. That said, you should not take it lightly though in case any complications do present themselves. Spotting in the first and second trimester are not okay. That does not mean you are going to have a miscarriage but it certainly is not healthy and you should call your doctor and go to the ER right away. When you are spotting during pregnancy it is a good idea to wear a pad or pantie liner. This will keep you aware of just how much you are bleeding.Signs of Miscarriage:# Vaginal Bleeding # Cramping # Tissue being passed Signs of Ectopic Pregnancy:# Cramping # Sharp pains in your stomach # low hCG levels# vaginal bleeding Signs of Molar Pregnancy:# Vaginal Bleeding # clusters seen via ultrasound # no heartbeat detected via ultrasound # hCG levels unusually high

Yes & no. Vaginal bleeding during pregnancy that is red & accompanied with excessive cramping is a indication of a threatened miscarriage. However during early pregnancy spotting is very common but you should still report it to your doctor to be on the safe side.

User Avatar

It has been known to happen that women have their periods while being pregnant. If the cramping and bleeding is heavier than a normal period, it's also possible you are having a miscarriage. See a doctor.

User Avatar

probably you were pregnant and had a miscarriage

User Avatar

A doctor can give you a injection to slow down bleeding but this is usually only given during a very very heavy bleed during a miscarriage. Bleeding during pregnancy needs to be checked out and spotting is such light bleeding that doctors dont need to administer anything to stop it. It will stop on its own. If pregnant see doctor.

User Avatar

Yes you can. Depending how far on you are, how serious it is. It may be an early sign of a possible miscarriage early in pregnancy. Towards the end it may be a sign that you are going into labour.

User Avatar

not likely unless there is cramping backache signs of labor..it could just be spotting from the new pregnancy

Symptoms of miscarriage include but are not limited to: heavy bleeding, bright red bleeding, clots, cramping, loss of pregnancy symptoms, dizziness, and abdominal pain. If you feel that you could be having a miscarriage or have any type of bleeding during pregnancy you should call your Dr. If you are having heavy bleeding (more than 1 pad per hour), back/shoulder pain, smelly discharge, yellow/green discharge, or fever you should go to the ER immediately.
