Spotting and Cramping are two of the most common early signs of pregnancy, also look out for tiredness, frequent head aches and the obvious one...morning sickness, i would say your next step is to see a pharmacist for a pregnancy test and then book in to your doctor/midwife (depending on the result ofcourse), Good Luck! :)

If your spotting a little at about 6 or 7 weeks into your pregnancy what does it mean?

It could be spotting from the baby implanting, still making its way out. Or your progesterone may be dropping (meaning you could lose the baby) or it could mean nothing. I had spotting with both my pregnancies. one of them i lost, one of them stuck.
