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.

Spotting is different for all women. Some women have a little spotting early in pregnancy when the egg implants. This is generally a small amount of red blood and/or brownish discharge. Later in pregnancy it's normal to experience a small amount of spotting after intercourse or after any kind of internal exam performed by your doctor. Some women may have a heavier amount of spotting, but generally it's just a small amount.If you're concernd about what you may be experiencing you should always call your doctor.
