Six weeks pregnant and spotting: when it is normal?
Spotting is not normal during pregnancy but it is common. There are a variety of reasons for bleeding and spotting during pregnancy. Only your doctor can diagnose the cause of the spotting and determine if it is something to worry about or not.
If you experience brown or pink spotting I would mention it to your doctor at your next appointment but I wouldn't go to the hospital or call the doctor. Brown spotting means that the blood is old. Pink spotting means that there is a tiny amount of blood. If you experience bright red spotting or bleeding I suggest you call your doctor right away and explain your symptoms.
Spotting can be as simple as vaginal or cervical irritation from sex or it can even be a sign of a serious condition or miscarriage. The most important thing to do is call your doctor. Try your best not to freak out or stress about it because there are so many different causes. Many women will experience spotting during their healthy pregnancy.
When I was pregnant with Avery I spotted brown from about 5-8 weeks. My doctor said it was a side effect of the progesterone I was taking because my HCG levels kept going up. It was super nerve wracking though!
