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?
