Should I be concerned about light spotting in early pregnancy?

I am four months pregnant and have noticed that I have some brown spotting.

Many women spot when they first become pregnant and sometimes off and on the whole pregnancy. If it keeps up for 24 hours or gets worse call your caregiver.

Spotting during pregnancy can be normal. This can happen right around the time you would normally have your menstrual cycle. Cramping and heavier bleeding warrant a doctor visit.

It is probably implantation spotting, and not a problem. If the spotting turns red, you should call your OB immediately.

This is not at all abnormal. Pregnant women frequently experience some amount of pink or brown spotting, sometimes throughout their entire pregnany. If it beomces a significant disharge, or is a deeper/brighter red, contact your doctor immediately.

It's too late for implantation bleeding so that isn't the cause. You need to get to a doctor right away to make sure that nothing is wrong with the baby. Anytime you have spotting or cramping you need to alert your doctor.
