I've name changed for this as I'm asking for a friend and my previous name could of been identifiable.
My friend has endometriosis and has recently found out she is pregnant she has been spotting for days and had cramping but not enough to warrant painkillers.
Would just like to know if this normal and what symptoms are common with endo in pregnancy. She's very worried that this means miscarriage and would like to hear some positive outcomes with the same kind of symptoms.
She is seeing an out of hours doctor later to hopefully see what's going on.

I have endo and this is my 3rd pregnancy. My first 2 pregnancies were fine but this one I had cramping and bleeding up til about 12 weeks. Best thing to do is call a midwife and ask for advice, everyone's endo is different the same as every pregnancy. I ended up getting an early scan at about 8 weeks and it turned out to be a small bleed near the baby and I'm now 29 weeks and everything is fine. Good luck and congrats to your friend
