    I have been having some periodic, super light brown spotting. I had horrible pain in my left side so they had me come in for a scan at 5w 6d and I had a cyst on my ovary that tried to pop. They said that shouldn't cause spotting though. The baby had a heartbeat and every thing was fine. The cyst went away too. I still continue to have a tiny spotting now and then, but today there was a lot more than usual and it was bright red. I am not having any now. It was just for a few hours and it wasn't flowing or anything. I had not had intercourse recently or anything like that. I had a scan last Tuesday and everything was fine at 8 weeks 4 days. I just don't understand why I am bleeding at all. I have 2 other children and never so much as spotted a drop with them. The doctor told me to keep my feet up and relax. Has anyone else had this same experience?

    I had bright red spotting at about 6 or 7 weeks with my son and everything was fine. I don't know what caused it, but all was well. It can happen.
    Best of luck...I'm sure everything will be fine.

    I had some light brown spotting at 8 weeks (when my period would have normally been due) and had a scan done and everything looked fine. Bubs had a heartbeat and no sign of any danger. I was told it can be quite normal to have some spotting. I hope the spotting has stopped for you and everything goes well :dust:

    Babers, I'm the same as you - two previous pregnancies and not a single episode of spotting. This pregnancy I had a bleed at 8 weeks (bright red) and then several episodes of lighter spotting since - every time I go for a check up all's well. Trying not to worry but just hoping there will come a day when I can truly say I'm not worried / freaked out by it!!!

    Wishing you all the best! x
