My wife is 5 weeks pregnant. Conceived after 4 yrs. When she saw few blood spots and some brown color spotting in urine. V r very tensed. Is it normal?
Seek care if persist:
There are various reasons to explain her symptoms- uterine implantation can sometimes cause spotting, she could also be starting with a bladder infection. I would be more concerned about miscarriage if she were to have abdominal pain or cramping. If the spots persist or she develops cramping, seek medical care. In the meantime, I would suggest she rest.
