I have had light spotting for the last 5 days

Hi Alex,
I`m currently 10 1/2 weeks pregnant and have had light spotting for the last 5 days (happens about once a day). I`ve seen the Dr and had an ultrasound, and the baby`s fine, but is this normal and should I be concerned? I have recently been diagnosed with PCOS and have been told that I have a higher than normal chance of miscarriage, so I`m freaking out a bit!
Thank you!

Answer: Hi, Any bleeding in pregnancy is regarded as abnormal and should be checked. If you have had a check up and there are no extra signs of problems then you really just need to wait and see. In the majority of cases everything is fine and the bleeding will settle. Try not to worry too much and look after yourself. Best wishes, Alex
