It is not normal to spot during pregnancy as it could mean many negative things. It is very few cases of spotting that can be said as being abnormal. First of all, it could mean that you are in your first stages of a miscarriage. This is caused by many factors ranging from genetics, stress and external trauma among others. After a physical examination at your gynecologist’s you may suffer some spotting as well and you will need to get this checked as well, although it is mostly normal. You may also be in the early stages of an ectopic pregnancy. This is rather complicated, and does not have an appropriate treatment except surgery for the removal of the implanted egg. This kind of pregnancy takes place when the egg is implanted in any other place other than the uterus. This will cause the fallopian tube or cervix to expand and cause a lot of cramping and bleeding for the woman. It is accompanied by tiredness, localized pain on the side of the body and dizziness which is not normal. Extreme cases can lead to the death of the woman and the loss of the pregnancy so it needs to be taken care of as soon as possible.
