Anyone else experience bleeding in early pregnancy?

Hey everyone. Me and my husband just found out I was pregnant with my 3rd baby about a week ago. Well yesterday I noticed some light pink blood after wiping (sorry tmi). Anyways it was not much but I see it faintly almost every time I go to the bathroom. Has anyone else had an experience like this and did you go on to have a healthy pregnancy? Doc said it could be normal or could be the beginning of a miscarriage which would be devastating. I didn’t bleed at all with my 1st but had Placenta previa with my 2nd and bled very heavy around 10-11 weeks. I was just hoping for some feedback. Thank you! Btw I’m right at 6 weeks along.

I have had that happen with a few of my pregnancies- two of the three that I had it with went on to be healthy little one's arriving, one did end in miscarriage.  As your doctor said, it can be normal, but can be a warning sign.  I know it is very hard not to worry when you see this, just keep an eye on your body and if you start having cramping or the bleeding gets heavier call your doctor.

Has your doctor ordered any blood work?  Also, are you Rh negative?  When I went through this, I had blood work done to determine my HCG level, and two days later- it was tested again to see if there was a rise.  This helped to reassure me that the pregnancy was going in the right direction when they did go up.  I also got a rhoGam shot early on as a prevention measure when I had the spotting (since I was RH negative).  

Let us know how you are doing and best wishes for you and baby!

I had this with my first pregnancy.  Yes, it's very disconcerting.  I actually had spotting all throughout my pregnancy with that baby.  He was born 10 days past his due date.  :>))  Try not to worry!  Unless the pink turns red, begins to increase and you have severe pains, then I'd think it's normal.  

Keep us in the know!!  Congrats!
