Spotting at 4 weeks pregnant? Mom2HMT TTC since Aug 2013; 1 child; 4 angel babies; Iowa 611 posts

Hi ladies, today while I was using the restroom I noticed there was some light bleeding. Almost so light that I probably wouldn't have noticed it if I weren't paying attention. It was gone by the next time I used the restroom.

Just wondering if this was normal and if so, what is causing it? Could it still be implantation bleeding even though I am 4 weeks? At what point would I need to call the doctor or should I start worrying? Has anyone else had this at 4 weeks? Thanks in advance!

I had one little spot of implantation bleeding in the beginning. It should be fine.

I had bleeding all through week 6 and some of 7. Most of the time it was light, but One night it was bad, my dr thought i had a MC but the next day i went to get an U/S and everything was fine. I had light bleeding for at least a week on and off. Im now 24 wks and things are just fine! I freaked out for nothing.. so dont worry too much about it :)

am not quite 5 weeks and I just had this as well. I have my first Dr. appointment on Monday so I will ask about it then. However, seeing that other ladies have had this same issue and it was ok makes me feel better. :-)

I had a lot of spotting during the first trimester of my first pregnancy. My Ob told me not to worry unless I had bleeding like a heavy period. I even had period like that at one point and still there was nothing wrong with my son.

Thank you so much! That really does make me feel so much better. It was just a total shock seeing that, especially because the night before I had dreamed exactly that. So of course I was watching for it and when it showed up I just freaked. Thank you again!
