If it's more than just spotting when wiping or it's worrying you give the EPU a call, they would be more than happy to check things out just to make sure.
My MIL said she had small bleeds every month when she was pregnant so it's not unheard of.

I had bright red spotting at 13 weeks and 17 weeks when I guess AF would have been due. I had some brown and red spotting prior to 13 weeks too but I've had nothing since 17 weeks (I'm 25 weeks now).

I had this too, at just before 8 and just before 16 weeks. The doctors were confident it was linked to my cycle but definitely good idea to speak to the EPU flowers

I had it too at 4 weeks, 8 weeks and 11 weeks. It got slightly less each time. I went to see my GP and was referred for early scans which helped me feel less worried, especially as I saw a heartbeat early on.
Nothing since then and I'm now 27 weeks. Bleeding is very common, but get a referral to check that there isn't anything to worry about. I've been amazed by how many people I know with kids have gone on to tell me that they had bleeding in pregnancy!
