Question: Hi doc,

I have slight spotting today and just entered my 18th week. Should i go and immediately report to my doc or can i go only if its heavy?

I have slight pain or discomfort, and praying my baby is fine and its just the hemmorage i had earlier. However from april 5th i had totally stopped spotting .. since it again started i am a little concerned.
