I think a few in the September thread last year had some bleeding/spotting in the early weeks months may be worth reading that to put you at ease.

Brown blood is old blood- spotting is pretty common in early pregnancy. I had really heavy bleeding at 5, 10 and 12 weeks - very scary I know but try to relax if you can. Take care xxx

Hey all you ladies who are worried about brown spotting, it is considered pretty common in first trimester. It can be due to implantation or due to hormones that control your menstrual cycle triggering bleeding (breakthrough bleeding). You may have this more than once.
Light bleeding can occur at other times in early pregnancy and a doctor may still refer to the bleeding as "implantation bleeding."
It is important to understand the difference between implantation bleeding and early miscarriage bleeding. In general, bleeding associated with an impending miscarriage or chemical pregnancy may begin as spotting but then turn into a heavier flow with visible clots and a dark red colour (similar to a menstrual period). In contrast, implantation bleeding may appear as a brown or lighter coloured discharge without clots with a lighter flow that lasts only a few hours to a few days. However, rule is not universally true and it is always better to ask your GP if you are worried.
Spotting after intercourse is often the result of the increased sensitivity of your cervix to any kind of minor bumping or irritation. (Some 20 percent of all pregnant women will have some spotting during their first trimester; after that, spotting is less likely to occur, and even if it does, it’s still not necessarily an ominous sign.)
Hope this information gives you some more assurance Juloz83. Your baby is likely to be fine, as spotting or light bleeding is often harmless.

If you are bleeding/spotting, please call your clinic or your GP. They will check that all is well and reassure you.
As people have said, it can be common to have spotting, but it is better to check with medically qualified people.

Take care
