is minor spotting and cramping normal?

​I just found out I am pregnant (1st one) and the doctor doesn't want to see me until I'm 8wks. I have been having some minor cramping. Nothing like when I was on my period and today I had a little spotting. Is this normal?

    your body is adjusting to something new can be normal for some moms to spot and light cramps due to muscles will tighten and relax different now and new muscles will start working that haven't really been used before ..it's a big change for a womens body to go through ....

      It can be normal, but if your really worried you can go to the ER to make sure everything is ok.

        It can easily be completely normal. I agree, you can call your doc but likely won't have much to tell you. If you have a good doc, they might get you in early or tell you to go to the ER they are affiliated with to get checked. Lots of sticky baby dust to you and I hope it works out just fine. Keep us updated.

          Thanks everyone! The minor cramping starting and so did the spotting. I was only spotting for one day and I called the doctor and he told me that it was normal. I was looking everything up on websites and freaking myself out!!! My husband shut the computer off and told me to stop diagnosing myself. I feel great today. The doctor told me that its just my body adjusting to having a new occupant :)

              Yep it stopped. My doctor said that because it was a brown and not a dark red that it was normal. It had happened after my husband and I had sex. He said that it often happens and that as long as the color wasn't a dark red and there wasn't a lot then I should be fine.
