Is light bleeding in early pregnancy normal?

Bit of a scary question. Have any mums experienced light bleeding more pink than red? I’m currently six weeks, and for the past three days, I’ve been bleeding lightly on and off, so every 7 or 8 hours a bit will come out… Light cramps nothing excruciating… Have any mums experienced this and gone on to have a healthy pregnancy? & yes, I have spoken to my Dr just waiting on results…


It can be perfectly normal. Every woman is different. I’ve never experienced it but I have several friends who have and they had healthy pregnancies. I’m praying that all is well with you and congratulations

I spotted my whole first trimester then heavy bleeding around 12 weeks. Thought I was miscarrying. Turns out it was a subcronic hemmoarge… So pretty much placenta detached and reattached causing implantation bleeding. Was told by my OB it was normal. They rechecked me and bleeding stopped. I’m currently 28 weeks with a healthy baby boy.

I had light bleeding and cramping on and off in the first trimester but never had any issues

I miscarried both times it happened. Everyone’s body is different. Er visit and have them do blood work it can tell your hormone levels and if a miscarriage is happening


I had bleeding at 13 weeks but it was a sub chorionic bleeding that eventually dissolved back into the uterus. I’m now 25 weeks …maybe the baby is still implanting Into it’s forever home for the next 8 months

When I had a miscarriage… but I’ve heard of other woman bleeding in their pregnancy call your doctor and get an ultra sound and hormone levels checked

I did. Shes now almost 6 months old. Implantation bleeding was what I was it was after I was told I miscarried but there was still a baby in there.

I bled at 6 weeks with my son. I’m sure you’re okay, but if you get more concerned, you can make an appointment or just call and ask. They told me it was implantation bleeding :woman_shrugging:t4:

Yes its normal i believe it is called implantation

It definitely can happen. Id see if they can check you hcg levels over the next week. The normal check every 48 hours

I did and went on to have a healthy baby that is now almost 14. Just take an easy and don’t over due yourself! Most importantly don’t stress out! Get mad say what you gotta say and get over it! Good luck momma and congratulations!!

It’s often common around 6-8 weeks due to the embryo implanting into the uterus. Only you know your body tho and if it puts your mind at ease go to the doc.


Light bleeding/spotting is perfectly normal in the early stages of pregnancy. If you are worried though please take yourself to an er right away

Same thing happened to me. Lost the baby at 7 weeks 8 days. They told me it was normal, take yourself to get checked, they will do blood work and monitor your levels.

Its called implantation bleeding and can be totally normal but as always if you are unsure ask your physician
