what does 'light bleeding' mean?


Hello!
I am 8 weeks. sometimes i have light pinkish blood when wiping after going for a wee. Its not enough to stain a pad but it is seemingly getting a brighter pink. I have been reading about 'spotting' or light bleeding which people say is normal but what defines a 'light bleed'?

I would say that sounds like spottin personally. I had this a couple of times and obviously we think the worst. It is normal as per say but the important thing to realise is that if it gets worse or persists and you have pain then you must seek medical assistance x x x good luck hun x x x

It is very worrying i admit that... we become different people as soon as we find out we have a tiny baby inside us! The thing is its all perfectly normal and if you have any worries we here at the first tri can maybe guide u into the right direction so dont ever feel like you are alone x

I had a bit of pink when I wiped at 8 weeks too. I read somewhere that it is quite common to get a bit of staining around the time you would have had your period. Mine was on almost the exact day it would have started. I think it is quite normal - hope so anyway

Light bleeding is spotting or maybe a little more, but not as much to be a significant amount on a panty liner.

thanks for your replies everyone, i think it must be the spotting you are talking about. And yes, it may well be the usual time for another period perhaps too, i'll check out my dates.
