I'm around 4 1/2 weeks according to calendars.
I spotted for a dew days last week and it went away.
Still getting positive test. I started spotting a little while ago.
Is this normal ?

Spotting can be normal for some women during pregnancy. I had brown spotting during one of my pregnancies, and when I called the doctor they said not to worry unless it was bright red and heavy. Have you DTD lately? That can cause spotting as your cervix can be sensitive during pregnancy due to increased blood flow. Try to take it easy, and maybe give your doctor a call if only to ease your mind.

Spotting can be very normal, not that that doesn't make it any less nerve wracking though! I spotted frequently with my last PG and I freaked out each time, lol.

It's not from DTD. I just spazzed for an hour earlier. It's all good.

It's light pink and hardly any at all.

For me both times I started spotting it wasn't a good ending.

I know it can be totally normal for a lot of women though. Best of luck

I had full blown bleeding at 6 wks and at 10 wks with DD. It's scary, I know but it's very common.
