I am 10-weeks-pregnant and started spotting: Advice?

I’ve recently found out I’m pregnant with my first, around ten weeks. I’ve had some slight spotting for a few days and some light cramps. I’ve had an early scan and spoken with my doctor and was advised the baby looks fine, and the heart is beating. Have any other mums gone through this? Did the spotting stop after a little while? I’m waiting for my next scan for a further update, but I just wanted some advice from others as I am stressing myself out. Thanks

It can be implantation bleeding. I had light spotting until 12 weeks and I’m 27 weeks now

I had this at 6 weeks, monitor it & keep as calm as you can. Could be implanting bleeding. If it gets worse, see a Dr!!

Notice…is this about the time of your regular period? You will be fine …

I had a similar issue and it was due to a low lying placenta. As the pregnancy progressed, the placenta moved and bleeding stopped. Gave birth to a healthy baby boy 5/26 :slightly_smiling_face:

Also had bleeding early on with my daughter that they never found a reason for.

Yip i did at 9 weeks pregnant baby was fine had it of an on for afew days, im now coming up 16 weeks

I spotted until I was 17 weeks, he was absolutely fine

I was 9 weeks with implantation bleeding. All was fine.

Probably just implantation bleeding. If you’ve had a scan verify and their was a heart beat. Just try to stay calm. All you can do is talk to your dr and take their advice. When I went in at 8 wks for a scan they said they saw some implantation bleeding and that I shouldn’t worry if I see spotting.

I spotted at 14 weeks with my first. I was told that as long as the spotting is darker colored, and not bright red, its fine. Cramping is normal, however if the pain starts to feel like labor pains, or unbearable - thats a sign of a miscarriage. Just take it easy for a few days and rest as much as possible.

I wouldn’t worry, just take it elevate your feet

Yes inquire about placenta Previa ‘

I did. Go to acupuncture it helped it stop for me

I am 17 weeks pregnant now. I also had spotting earlier on. Around 6 weeks and 8 weeks. It was light. No cramping. But my dr assured me that some spotting is normal in pregnancy. Good luck mama!

Get your progesterone levels checked out

I had spotting! I thought I was miss carrying again! Everything was totally fine !

This happened to me as well. It was scary but my daughter is 5 now. Try not to worry. I know that’s almost impossible.
