Is spotting during pregnancy normal? I'm 6w5d pregnant and every other day I see light blood when I wipe (I saw it 4 times till now)

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Fairly common

It does happen, but can be a sign of subchorionic bleeding.
If you haven't told your OB about it, then do so on Monday. Nothing can be done for it emergently. Avoid sex until seen and an ultrasound done and if you're a smoker stop
