Brown spotting 6w 😒

Hi Ladies

I have just started to see brown spotting and I am 6w.. This is pretty devastating as I have been ok up until now.  Done a test today and it has gone from 2-3 weeks to 3+.

I have a scan booked for tomorrow as let's face it I need to know something even if it is bad news.  It's slowly gotten a fraction worse throughout the day no pain just lower intermittent waves of cramping.

Any good stories with this outcome?

  • I do! When I was 7 weeks pregnant  with my son I bled very heavily like a full flow period. I was convinced I'd lost the pregnancy and the midwife advised me to carry on as normal. I went for my scan expecting to see nothing but taken away when I saw my baby's heartbeat πŸ’— Some woman bled in pregnancy and go on to have healthy babies. My son is now 17 and a huge strapping rugby player! Hope 2morro goes well and you get see your baby's heartbeat πŸ’žx x x

  • Hey hon...

    This is just adding icing to the cake I wasn't already in its had been a nightmare.... Thanks for responding will update tomorrow fingers crossed a miracle happens and I see the heartbeat πŸ™πŸ½

  • This is really common hon, please try not to worry. Distract yourself! Do something to make yourself happy so your baby can be flooded with happy hormones rather than sad stressful ones xx

  • I've seen a few comments on different posts about this lovely, all women saying it's common. I'm sure you've nothing to worry about. Good luck tomorrow :) xxx

  • I have been seeing brown spotting since 2 days after I got my BFP, I am now 9 weeks and still getting it on and off every day.  Had a scan last Wednesday and all seems to be going well x 

  • Very common I'd told you I had it followed by bleeds red and brown... as long as your not filling pads of blood every hour you should be fine

    Keep us posted tomorow x 

    Scans didn't show where it was coming from all they could say is its prob just your cervix being extra sensitive as there's a lot going on in there x 

  • I had this at 5 then 6 weeks, your heart sinks when you see anything like that, it's very common and usually implantation bleed.

    Try not to worry and good luck for your scan xx

  • Hey tamtam I've never got a bfp so can't give you any advise at all. I just wanted to say I'm praying that your scan shows a lovely strong heartbeat which lasts for the full term till you have your little bean in your arms.

    Sending you a massive hug, I'll be thinking about you tomorrow x

  • Hi tamtam, i have heard that brown spotting or light red bleeding is normal so try not to stress about it. I know thats easier said than done but here's hoping all is well. Get a good comedy on tonight to take your mind off things and have a laugh. Im keeping everything crossed for you for tomorrow. Let us know how you get on. Take care xx

  • It's meant to be very common I would say nothing to worry about, could be little one/ones getting nice and comfy. Brown blood is old blood. Hope everything goes well tomorrow, this is your time hun get relaxing and enjoy every second. So happy 4u xx 

  • Thanks ladies...

    It's seems to be styling down still few cramps but praying all will be well.  Update tomorrow fingers crossed its good news to share πŸ™πŸ½πŸ™πŸ½πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜

  • Fingers crossed for you tomorrow xx

  • I hope the scan goes well tomorrow. Keeping my fingers crossed you get to see/hear the heartbeat.

  • I had brown spotting, hell I think I even had red blood still at 6 weeks. Had my 12 week scan yesterday (though am actually 13 weeks). Rest as much as you can and see what advice your clinic has. I hope I am proof it may be fine!

  • I had lots of spotting all varieties of colour. Keep calm. Good luck xx

  • A very difficult time for you, sending you best wishes I sincerely hope you get good news x

  • Keep calm and don't stop any of the progesterone etc. if you are taking anything. 

    I had exactly the same and was so worried. Now have 5 month twins. Try not to worry and good luck xx 

  • Best of luck for today hope all goes well. Xxx
