    I am pregnant with my 5th baby, my 1st 2, no spotting at all. Nothing. My 3rd (which was a twin pregnancy) I did have some. It was light, kinda 'brownish" in color. Kinda yucky, but it didnt last long. I wore a panty liner. It is normal for your body to get rid of stuff it doesnt need. being pregnant a lot of things are going on & with the egg settling into your wall & the baby growing & stuff, it can happen. As long as its not bright blood red color or heavy. Trust yourself, you'll know if its serious.
    But a lil spotting here & there, yucky stuff is normal & it will pass.
