baby4us - December 1

Hi Dr Smith,

I am around 13 weeks right now... after a successful IUI in September. I have, so far, had a relatively worry-free pregnancy.

Today I did notice some spotting this morning.. after a couple of wipes.. it had cleared up.. it was pretty minimal.. but bright red.

I did call my doctor. He said I should be fine -- there are no accompanying cramps and I had my 12 week u/s last week and saw a very strong, healthy heartbeat. So my doc said I should be fine.. just take it easy and if it gets worse.. just to call his office... go to emerg. But of course I am frozen with fear today.. and am afraid to do anything.

I have had some very slight spotting throughout my 1st trimester.. but this seemed a little more than what I experienced in the past.

I know you cannot say for sure wihout an exam.. but should I be worried????

It is not uncommon to have spotting to light flow in a normal pregnancy. There is no way I can promise you that everything will be all right. Your own OB is in a better position to do that.
Good luck.
