No, but it is possible to spot during pregnancy. In particular, it could be implantation bleeding. Take a pregnancy test to be sure. Blood tests are more reliable than urine tests. actually yes, spotting can very well be an early sign of pregnancy. it was the first sign i noticed that tipped me off that i was pregnant- it is not at all unusual to have spotting (which is known as implantation bleeding) anywhere from 4-12 days after conception. the reason for this is that the egg burrows into the uterine lining. of course spotting does not automatically mean that you are pregnant, though. Many women spot after sex while they pregnant. During pregnancy there is a lot more blood flow to the vagina and cervix area to support the baby. Sex can cause spotting because this area is a lot more swollen than usual and is easily bruised, leading to small amounts of bleeding. The spotting could be caused by the pregnancy. Don't worry about it unless it more than a "spot". Just take the sex a little easier for the future.

Spotting can not be considered as a sign of pregnancy. It is better to do the urine test for pregnancy. It should be fallowed by ultrasound examination in normal course.
