What does spotting during pregnancy look like How much is usually there And how long should it last Is it normal to bleed a little off and on during the day for a couple of days?

A normal pregnancy, there is no blood at all, at any stage of the pregnancy until the very end, where some women may loose their mucus plug. Spotting generally is when you wipe and there is a pink tinge, or you wear a pad and find some (but not much) blood. Some women get a bit of spottign around the time their period is due, which is called implantation spotting. I spotted and bled through 3 of my pregnancies, one of them I had 4 full on periods in the first 18 weeks, which was very scary. but my baby was fine. I would alwasy let your midwife know of any spotting. of any kind, pink or brown. just to be sure. goodluck Also, sex and internals can cause a little spotting without need for concern... make sure you let your lead maternity carer know

Actually, about 10% of all women experience some type of light bleeding during pregnancy. This bleeding, though, is not the same as getting your period. One of the most important things to do is to determine whether you're spotting or bleeding since they are very different symptoms that can indicate totally different issues. See your health care provider for more information.

You are 8 weeks and you started spotting after sex are you having a miscarraige?

Although it is well known that women are at the most significant risk of a miscarriage in the first trimester of pregnancy 'spotting' can occur for many, various reasons at any stage of pregnancy and is not neccessarily indicative of a miscarriage. what I would say is that although 'spotting' is perfectly normal for many women at any stage of pregnancy, it can also serve as an early indication of potential problems and for this reason it is probably best that you consult a G.P. I have had three children and spotted frequently during one pregnancy, my son was born happy and healthy with no problems!! Hope this helps.
