    Yep, normal. Light bleeding and period-like cramps are common in early pregnancy. If the cramping becomes very painful or the bleeding becomes heavy, see your doctor ASAP.

    You are really pregnant. Bleeding can be normal but not for everyone. If your cramping gets more painful I would go in to see a dr prior to your new ob appt. It never hurts to get a dr opinion esp to put your mind at ease.

    My last period was Aug 14 so you must be very close to me. Totally normal to bleed a little. I had some brown spotting for a few days right around when I would have gotten a period. As long as its not heavy and you aren't having painful cramping it's ok. My OB said it was either breakthrough bleeding or implantation bleeding. Congrats! It doesn't seem real to me either. lol!
