I went to the doctor on friday and confirmed my pregnancy. I'm 6 weeks prego. Yay! We're so excited. Due date is sept 25th. The only thing worrying me is I unfortunately had a recent abortion (please no flaming, just trying to get some health advice and/or information) in october. My Dr. Told me I am at risk of a misscarriage because its so recent. She says it can happen anytime within the first 12 weeks, after the 12 weeks if I still am prego I should be fine throughout the rest of the pregnancy. I i'm half way there and really hope everything will be fine. 2 nights ago I started what I guess you all call "spotting" first time I went to the bathroom, wiped myself and it was a light clearish pink color. And like twice yesterday it was a light brownish color, and this morning as well. I really hope it's nothing and this is nonrmal. We really want this baby, we are really looking forward to having it. This is our dream come true.

Has anyone else experienced this early in there pregnancy?

Spotting in early pregnancy is normal just make sure you keep watching to see if it becomes really red or if any clots start appearing. If you have bad back pain or stomach pains associated with the bleeding I would go to your local doctor

I just went to the bathroom and it was a bit red, it's very light but still worries me. I'm trying not to worry too much, just hoping it's nothing. I have no pain what so ever. I really hope my baby is ok.

It was so early in our relationship, we were definetely not prepared. Not financially stable, just felt we weren't ready. He now is making very good money, I just started a great new job. We knew we couldnt go through another abortion. We thought about the idea of having our own child and got excited. But unfortunately I misscarried today Sad but what helps us feel better about it is that we now have more time to prepare ourselves for the future. We are still planning our wedding and hopefully as soon as I recover and heal we can try to conceive again. Thanx everyone for the info, it was much help. I have learned a lot and will be much more prepared for the future.

Lilly-
maybe you should talk to your doctor and see about how long he/she thinks you should wait to try to concieve. It would be horrible to lose another child so soon.

Yeah I asked about that before I left her office. She said to wait atleast 6 months Sad but I know it will give us more time to prepare. I hope all works out in the future.
