When do I need to call the doctor about nausea and spotting?
I am 11 weeks 5 days and just noticed some brown spotting (light) today. I have not had cramping, but I have had a lot of nausea the last 3 days. I was just at the doctor last week. Is there a point where I need to call the doctor?

Although 1 out of 4 women will have benign spotting in the first trimester, I would recommend that you contact your doctor’s office with any concerns regarding bleeding.
They may have you come in for a visit to listen to the baby's heartbeat and rule out other causes of brown discharge, such as yeast vaginitis or other bacterial overgrowth.
