Ok so we woke up everything was fine, Abby was giving me little kicks a few times yesterday at the lake and this morning. Not as hard or often as usual but I know that's pretty common, right? Anyways...(possibly TMI) a few minutes ago SO and I started fooling around, and he started f*******g me, after a few minutes I was on top and we had sex (no pressure on my belly at all) then we were done and all was good. Well after, I went pee and when I wiped slowly there was a spot of blood it wasn't dark red but it wasn't pink and it was a tiny spot. I kept wiping and 2nd time it was pink 3rd time it was gone I'm not hurting or cramping so is it possible that he just scratched me inside? What would you guys do/think?

I think you're fine but if you're worried you could go to the ER.

Cervical irritation. Happens to me all the time. It's no big deal but if you're really scared you can call your doc/midwife for reassurance.

Your cervix are very sensitive when pregnant, and sex can cause spotting. I'm sure its nothing, but keep an eye on it!

Sex can irritate your cervix and cause spotting. It's pretty standard during pregnancy.
I wouldn't worry about it unless it starts bleeding again more this time, and is accompanied by cramping. If you're really worried just call your doctor but I'm willing to bet they'll say the same thing.

It's pretty normal to spot a little after sex. It can even happen when not pregnant. If nothing else comes to it, I'd say you're fine.

If the bleeding got worse or continued, it would be concerning, but it's very very common to spot after sex while pregnant. You can also spot from bowel movements or internal exams. There's a huge increase in blood volume and some of that goes to our cervix. It can get easily irritated during pregnancy. No biggie.

cervix is super sensitive and blood vessels are close to the surface so any irritation can cause a little spotting. if it picks up or you start to get pain call your ob

Nine times out of ten, when DH and I have sex, I have some form of spotting afterwards. You should be fine, I'd only be concerned if you start cramping or the blood flow increases.
