I was reading a thread a few pages back about whether or not a woman can have her period while she is pregnant and the answer was no, but she can have spotting. But my question is, how can you tell the difference? I mean, I know a period is the shedding of the uterine lining, but you don't see your uterus on a daily basis, so how could you tell what was a period and what was spotting?

Spotting is very, very light bleeding that generally doesn't last very long.
