Welcome and Congrats on the pregnancy!!  I'm happy for you.  I want to say assuredly that many women spot in early pregnancy. This is doubtful to be implantation bleeding (which normally happens before a positive pregnancy test and is just a little spot of blood and really, not that many women have it at all).  However, many women do spot or bleed.  Hormones can cause this.  If it is increasing and becoming more heavy or you begin to have painful cramps, check in with your doctor.  But even mild cramps and some spotting is usually fine.  When did you get your positive pregnancy test and when do you think you conceived?

I personally did not have implantation bleeding with either of my pregnancies. If it's light and not bright red, it may be ok. Maybe you can book an appointment with your doctor for reassurance.

Implantation happens before you get a positive pregnancy test so at that point you don’t know that you are pregnant just yet. I had it twice but it was more of a spotting and it wasn’t more than two days. I would call your OB and check out what’s going on.
