Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

There's a chance it's nothing, but not necessarily. Call the doctor ASAP!
It is never normal to bleed when you are prego. That is what my doctor told me. I have had two miscarriages. Im prego now and im 26 weeks. This baby is healthy. Call your doctor if you are still bleeding. They will check your blood. REMEMBER if any thing happens it wasnt your falt and NEVER give up!!!!
You absolutely MUST contact your doctor to be seen right away!  Go do that right now if you haven't.Even as you go to see your doctor to make sure everything is A-OK, know that not all bleeding leads to miscarriage.  I had bleeding in my first trimester and of course went to see my doctor, and it turns out (as I found out later) that I had a non-cancerous polyp on my cervix, which the pregnancy horomones were causing to bleed!  Nothing to do with baby whatsoever. So go see your doctor ASAP, but have some hope.Best of luck to you.
i as well spotted in my first trimester. I was 11 weeks and 1 day so i was definitely scared. I went in right away and they put me on bed rest. Sometimes it happens just because you work yourself to much. It was my first pregnancy so I didn't have anything to compare it to, but my daughter came out healthy as a horse! I'm now 8 weeks pregnant with my second with my daughter being 19 months so we'll see what happens next! Good luck. TIP: Always always always call your doctor if you're not sure!
