Good morning Ladies I am 13 weeks out and woke up yesterday spotting just slightly, today it is much redder and a little heavier but still only spotting. Has anybody else had this or should I call the dr?

Re: Spotting?

Did you overdo it a bit recently? Maybe add a new exercise activity or big fall cleaning project to your routine?

Although most bleeding/spotting ends around the 6-8 week mark, sometimes there is still some healing going on for several more weeks. Additionally, there can be granulation issues which can cause some spotting.

More than likely you are fine, but don't hesitate to touch base with your doctor, especially if you haven't been bleeding for awhile. It is always better to be safe than sorry!
