    Hi, I'm new to this section of WebMD and before I ask my question I just want to say that I took a home pregnancy test yesterday and it turned out positive (my husband and I are very happy!). I called a local gynecologist to see when I could come in and see her and ask some questions, all I got was that the doctor won't see me or talk to me until 12 weeks or so. I had a very important question to ask the doctor but her nurse wouldn't let me speak to her or answer my question, so I'm here and ready to ask. I have been spotting, its been a few days (i.e some blood on Wednesday, no blood Thursday, a little on Friday and nothing over the weekend or Monday and Tuesday) is this normal? and if its not, how do I get the doctor to see me?

    Yes, spotting in early pregnancy is normal as long as it doesn't become heavy or is accompanied by severe cramping.

    Thank you very much! That puts my mind at ease

    Hi there, yes it is just normal as long as it is not heavy. Also, why don't you try other OB so you won't have to wait for your previous OB.
