Absolutely not. see your doctor immediately I disagree with the previous answer. While it is a good idea to check with your health care provider if you spot during the 2nd trimester, it does not necessarily indicate a serious problem. Sometimes spotting in the 2nd trimester is caused by a bowel movement, sex, or heavy lifting. I found it reassuring to visit my midwife and hear the heart beat.
