honestly i think you should go to the doctor. i too am pregnant nearly 7 weeks and last week i started bleeding too (spotting) and i was so scared.. going to the doctor and getting my test result in and him saying everything was fine made me feel alot better. i think if you dont go you'll just constantly been thinking about it and worrying.. xox

Some spotting during pregnancy is common. If you experience severe cramping (light cramping is normal) or get too worried call your doctor or go to the emergency room. You should call the doctor and make an appointment to get a blood test done to determine if you are pregnant or not. Good luck with whatever result it is you want!

Spotting during pregancy is actually very common. If you experience severe cramping (light cramping is normal) or you get worried you should call your doctor. You should go ahead and call your doctor and schedule a blood test to determine for sure if you are pregnant. Good luck.

Ok to start off when you use a home pregnancy test, it detects a hormone is your urine called HCG the only way for a test to show a positive is if this hormone is in your system and the only way for this hormone to be in your system is if you are pregnant. Ok that being said there are never hardly ever false postives unless you are taking a fertility medication there are always alot of false negatives. You may be so early in your pregnancy that the spotting could be due to implantation. I would go to the doctor just to get check to know for sure and to be on the safe side. Hope this helps.

It can sometimes be normal to have some minimal spotting early in a pregnancy, but the only way to find out for sure would be to go to the doctor. If your pregnancy test was positive, then you are pregnant or you have the hormone HCG in your bloodstream from being pregnant. IF you were to be in danger of miscarriage at this time, the doctor would most likely tell you that you should rest, take things easy, and wait to see what happens. Again, the only way to know is to see the doctor or to at least call them. It may be normal.
