Some : Some women do have light bleeding during the first trimester when the fetus implants into the uterus. Please contact your gynecologist for an evaluation. White discharge is normal during pregnancy but if it is an excessive amount or you have the itching then it may be an infection. If you are having continued bleeding, have any pain, feel light headed, or have new complaints then you should be seen immediately.

Seek care: Consult an obstetrician in order to start your prenatal care and request a pelvic sonogram , a careful evaluation of “your first trimester ultrasound” performed by a certified sonographer.. These are the easiest and quickest ways to answer your concerns and to reassure you that your pregnancy is developing normally.
