11. False Period
Spotting or light bleeding is common in the early stages of your pregnancy. Between 25 and 40 percent of expectant mothers will have some form of light bleeding. This symptom occurs when a fertilized egg attaches to the lining of the uterus. Known as implantation bleeding, this is common around one to two weeks after conception.
Roughly 20 percent of women experience spotting within the first twelve weeks of their pregnancy. Cervical irritation, a threatened miscarriage, or ectopic pregnancy can also cause spotting. If your bleeding stops being light and gets heavy, you need to be seen by your doctor. Pregnant women who feel severe backaches, cramps, or stabbing pains can also be indicators of a more severe problem.
