So saturday night I noticed some light spotting. I am 20 weeks along in my 4th pregnancy (my first and third were early miscarriages). My second pregnancy was totally normal and resulted in a beautiful healthy baby boy. I am still lightly spotting today (monday). I am in no pain and i am not too concerned, but wondering if anyone else has experienced this? At what point should I call the doctor? Thanks

I would call now, because I'd just want to know that I was okay and the baby was too. I'm having my first though, so that would just freak me out.

i had spotting in the very begining and i called mr dr because i freaked out lol
remember
if the blood is red and your cramping thats when you need to go in. until then its most likely normal. have you had sex recently? if so it might be due to irritation of the cervix.


you can always call though just to make sure.

Thanks. I did call the doc yesterday after i started cramping and he sent me to hospital. At first they thought maybe my placenta was low and causing the bleeding, but after an ultrasound and an exam, it turned out my cervix was just irritated. Pheww!!!
