I know they say some spotting is normal during the first trimester, but I'm looking for some support I guess.

I was seriously JUST thinking......how lucky I am so far that I havent had any spotting or anything major to set me off or make me nervous. I was walking out to my truck to grab a bag of wood pellets, brought them back into the house and went to use the restroom.

Pink in my underwear and a bit when I wiped. Not a lot- but enough to notice.

We DTD yesterday- and it was a bit uncomfortable during some parts of it- so I wonder if that is the culprit?

Should I call my doctor? It makes me nervous- even tho I know they say some spotting is normal. Help

You just had sex yesterday, you're fine! You shouldn't worry one bit. I had sex on Sunday and had to change the sheets, but unfortunately for me, that is normal. I called my doctor and she said that some spotting is ok. It's better if it's brown. If it's a lot (like, changing your pad hourly or something) or bright red, or accompanied by cramping, then that is cause for concern. Call if you're worried, but I think you are a-ok! And lucky that spotting's not a concern for you. It's like my arch enemy!

DTD can irritate things, but call if it will make you feel better. Hope you don't have anymore.

DTD can totally cause some spotting. When we first DTD after conception I spotted for two days then it went away. From what I've read its common for some spotting after sex, but the blood is from swollen engorged vessels in the vaginal area, not the uterus. If it stays light I wouldn't worry. If it gets worse, lasts very long, or it puts your mind at ease, call your doctor.

I wouldn't worry. It is perfectly normal

Maybe wait a little bit before doing the deed again - that way if you do the deed and get spotting you know what is causing it. It is probably just irritation.

When I'm worried about spotting I take a new test. If the line is strong and dark I stop worrying

Most likely it's from sex. Things are super sensitive with the hormones.

I agree with all of the other posters. It most likely is from having sex, but take a test, call your doc, do whatever you need to do to make yourself feel more at ease. Worry will not help, and you are absolutely well within your right to call your doc. Sticky baby vibes going your way!
