Very light spotting?

Has anyone else experienced light spotting in early pregnancy either this time around or a previous one? With my daughter I had not spotting what so ever and while I know they say its common I'm still worried. I have no cramping or anything it was just a small smear of very light pink discharge when I noticed when I was changing. I've been checking when I go to the bathroom and I don't whip up blood so I'm guessing everything is ok, just need a little reassuring.

I have experienced spotting with all of my pregnancies; most of the spotting was around the time my period was due, but would last for days.. light pink spotting or "implantation" bleeding. With my second daughter, I had spotting a bit later, around 10 weeks when I had a subchorionic hematoma, but everything turned out fine. Hugs!!

I had a full period while pregnant with DD1 and swore something was wrong. With DD2 I spotted off and on a little bit. Only when I wiped though and never enough to go onto my underwear. ((Hugs))

At my doctor's appt on Monday she told me that around week 6 - 7 it's normal to have spotting because the placenta forming 'roots' or something. Hope this helps! ((hugs))

Had a little more spotting this morning, just when I wiped( still very light). A little nerve racking but trying not to think about it.

I am praying for the best for you! I hope it turns out to be nothing.
