    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Spotting is common in early pregnancy but it probably wouldn't hurt to call your doctor and see what they say.

    Hi Holly and welcome!

    About 25% of pregnant women experience slight bleeding during their first trimester . Early in the pregnancy, light spotting may be a sign that the fertilized embryo has implanted in the uterus.

    However, if you have significant bleeding, cramping, or sharp pain in your abdomen, call your doctor.

    Please let us know how you are doing!
