User avatar Hello,
Spotting is very common in early pregnancy. All you can do is watch and see because it can be a sign of miscarriage in some cases. Even so, there is little to be done. If a miscarriage is imminent, we haven't found anything to really make a difference. Usually they occur because something is not developing properly with the fetus and we can't help that. If you start cramping and bleeding heavily, that is likely a miscarriage. Some continued spotting can still result in a healthy pregnancy.

Good luck.
