I've been having some cramping/pulling feelings the last couple days.

Implantation spotting perhaps? I had this with my 2nd pregnancy, but not my first. I also was very crampy early on with #2, it felt like AF was going to show any minute.

I've actually had pink/beige/occasionally bright red spotting since 5 or so weeks (I'm almost 12 weeks now.) Sometimes with cramps that feel like mild menstrual cramps, sometimes without.

It's reeeeeally hard to relax and not worry when it's happening, but

I had spotting for just about my entire first trimester with DS.

I had some the day I went in for my bloodwork. They said it is normal unless it gets really bad. Then not TMI but I had some after DH and DTD once and I was so nervous I was going to miscarry. So we stopped for a few weeks and I never had it again.

Thanks ladies! I think I just really needed somebody to tell me that they had it too and everything worked out! I remember having the cramping with DS, but never had spotting, so I panicked a little. But, I'm definitely trying to relax!

Sandy- I haven't let DH touch me since my BFP, and I'm even more afraid to now :)

I had spotting in my first pgcy. Just like you described, light pink, sometimes brown. It's probably nothing. However, in my case it was a sign of a "sub-placental bruise" (sorry, no idea of the term in english). It resolved itself and I had a great pregnancy, but if you see that it continues for many days or gets heavier, don't be afraid to ask your Dr.

I had a whole answer typed and iVillage just ate it!
Anyways. It happened to me. It turned out to be a small issue with the placenta, nothing serious (my son is living proof), but if the spotting persists I would tell the Dr. Just to be on the safe side

I had spotting several times and was told with consecutive pregnancies it's really common because the cervix will bleed as it hardens up again and starts to thicken. It can also become easily irritated during times you DTD or had a pap. I do not think it was implantation because you can't get a BFP until after implantation.
