    Default Is spotting normal?

    Hi, last week I found out I was pregnant.

    I have been spotting very lightly when I wipe for the last 8 days. No clots. Sometimes its darkish pink or brown discharge.
    Not enough to reach a pad.

    Went to the hospital on tuesday freaking out but the doctor said it was normal.
    He also took a hcg blood test and the first result was 225 & yesterday's follow up blood test was 772. So thats all good.

    I have no pain either.

    Am I stressing over nothing?

    I had spotting for 5 days in weeks 10 and 11 and all was fine.
    Your B-HCG was doubling so that's the main thing!

    It can be nothing, it can be something - I've had both. But it is an excellent sign that your HCG is increasing. Fingers crossed it's all normal for you

    I had spotting at around 5 weeks with this pregnancy. Everything was fine, I'm now 38 weeks.

    I also had spotting at 20 weeks with dd2, everything was fine then too, she's 13 months old now.

    I have also had 2 mc, so I understand your worry.

    I had spotting with DD1 for well over a week, and the hospital managed to mix up my blood test results so they told me I had miscarried and to return in a week if the pregnancy hadn't "naturally cleared out" by then. Went to my GP the next day and discovered the hospital had just completely stuffed up. DD1 is nearly 7 years old now! What they said to me is if there are no clots, its probably nothing to worry about.
