Vaginal Bleeding in pregnancy… is it normal?

Vaginal bleeding in pregnancy is very common, but not necessarily considered normal. However, there are times in the pregnancy, especially early on, when one can anticipate vaginal bleeding. Implantation spotting typically happens very early (usually days 10-14 after fertilization) in the pregnancy. This is considered a normal finding. This occurs as the egg (aka, the tiny baby) disrupts the lining of your uterus to implant. Because there are several other reasons for bleeding in pregnancy, some of which need immediate attention, vaginal bleeding should always prompt you to contact your doctor or go to the nearest hospital (if heavy).
