Is light spotting normal on early pregnancy?

Hi mommies.. Can I ask if you have experienced some spotting for days like light brown and sometimes red during your early pregnancy? Is it just normal or something is off and should seek the OB attention immediately? Thanks for the inputs.

Had some spotting at 7weeks. Contacted my gynae who assured me that baby was alright but I got put on HL for 11 days to rest. Best to contact your gynae!

Hi Mummy. I am 5 wks pregnant. On 25th Dec,I had bleeding like not a lot but urine there will be string of blood then my urine is red. I thoughtit was my period cos I was a day late. Then at night till next morning it stopped. I wasn't feeling good since before that I had some signs that I might be pregnant but I brushed it away cos I tested a week b4 & negative. But strong feeling to test & i saw faint lines. I was shocked & worried. Then went to get a digital & watson test kit. I bleed again. Then it was faint still but clearer & digital stated 1-2 wks pregnant. I called NUH & they asked to go to A&E since I'm bleeding. Had slight cramps. Found out im into early pregnancy very early indeed. Doc asked to come back another day for blood test to see if HCG level increase meaning might not be miscarriage but worried might be ectopic pregnancy. Then my bleeding stopped for 2 days then came back 1 time brownish then stopped till now. Last week I went for blood test & it increases. Yesterday they did ultrasound & saw the sac but no foetus yet cos only 5 wks but they said there is blood clot outside the sac. Gynae said need to monitor but dont worry it is normal but need to come back 2 wks later to see if baby is there growing. The term is called Subchorionic Hemorrhage. Im trying to be positive. I pray that all is good for u. Bleeding doesnt always end negative. (:

It's pretty common in early stage. However, do monitor for frequency and how heavy the flow is. If it's accompanied by pain or cramp, dont hesitate to seek medical attention. I went A&E 2 times because of spotting. The first visit, ntg much was done but to monitor. I saw brown spot but upon physical examination, there isnt active bleeding. The second time though, it was fresh blood with cramp more severe than menses. Dr gave progesterone pill to stabilize and hopefully to reduce the spotting. Advice was still to monitor but rold not to carry heavy things and take bed rest.

Currently 9 weeks. I just experienced bright red bleeding on Sunday. Immediately went to KKH Urgent O&G. Diagnosed as threatened miscarriage. Was given 4 tablets of Duphaston to take immediately. Increased dosage from twice a day to thrice a day. These 2 days no more bright red bleeding but still got a bit of brown discharge. Best to see your gynae or just go to KKH urgent O&G for peace of mind.

Spotting in any part of the pregnancy shows that there is some instability. It may turn out all fine, it could also be a sign of problem, so best to get it checked by gynae ASAP. All the best!

Hi... it’s best to see a doctor for advice

I would recommend u to see ur gynae to have a peace of mind. :) for my prev preg, i had spotting but it didnt turn out good. All depends on individual.

Normal actually.. i did went to a&e afew time.. but my case was my womb is not so strong.. so i need to comsume hormon pill.. but my baby is so active.. But different person can be different symptoms.. just that i strongly suspect u need alot of rest and eat snacks more.. and dnt carry heavy things..
