So had my BFP on Tuesday but slight brown spotting today 😧

Hi everyone , just looking for someone reassurance. Had my positive result on Tuesday but this evening I have noticed a very slight light brown twinge when I wipe. I starting to panic. Is this normal? Has this happened anyone before ? X

Happened to me a lot various colours keep as calm as you can and try to stay positive it's hard and it is different for the everyone but it's certainly not a panic situation. Xx

Hey Hun. As long as it is not heavy bleeding and it's just spotting. If it continues, call your clinic and get a blood test just to put your mind at rest. Wishing you all the best my lovely. Xx

Thanks Nicola , do you mind me asking how far you were on when you were spotting? I'm 5 weeks and just worried is that too far on to have implantation bleeding as I read somewhere it happens earlier ? X

That's such lovely news Nicola and thank you so much for sharing has reassured me a lot. I have rang me clinic to be on the safe side. We were both just over the moon when we saw the positive result ! Was such a surreal moment. Needing to pinch myself , so I think that's why when I saw the brown I just thought/ thinking the worst X

I had heavy bleeding at 6/7 -like a period when I was pregnant with my now 18 year old son. I was told I was having a threatened miscarriage and I was prepared that I lost the baby-I was amazed and delighted to see a healthy baby at my scan! My sister also bled very heavy at 5 weeks and told the same as me-but didn't lose the baby-my niece is now 3 this month. Some women bleed in early pregnancy and still go on to have healthy babies πŸ‘Ά I hope the bleeding calms down as I know how worrying that is. X πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

Hi. I've always heard that brown blood is old blood. Try not to worry yourself too much at this stage. Congratulations on your pregnancy x

I hope that's all it ever is, spotting. As many have told you in here though it doesn't mean anything bad; one of my best friends bled a lot through her pregnancy, bright red blood but the baby was fine. He's a very cheeky toddler now πŸ‘ΆπŸΌ x

I had bleeding and when I called the clinic they told me to increase the progesterone. Didn't stop the bleedin, though. I'd say it is definitely worth calling your clinic

I have had loads of bleeding and brown spotting since 5 weeks and I am now nearly 14! It can be totally normal as baby grows for some people, it's more common than you think! X

Thanks for your reply. It keeps getting heavier now that I'm convinced it going to be a full bleed by tonight. Just so worried / scared

Yes sound fine. Try not to panic xxxx

So had a full on heavy bleed last night and this morning. Like a heavy period. Rang local midwives and they said there is nothing really they can do as we so early ( 5 and Half weeks). So it's looking like it's game over for us, just can't get my head around how cruel life can be, to get a your first positive pregnancy result ever and then a few days later to have your happiness crushed :( X

Oh no that is so awful so sorry to hear this. Could you take another pregnancy rest yourself? Have heard other girls saying they bled heavily and it was ok tho xx

Trying to stay hopeful but just hVe a bad feeling deep down X

Is it a proper full blown

period hun? Xx

Reply

Pretty much, mine are always very very heavy so I wil admit this one isn't as full flowing as mine are usually but I wonder are my pessaries making it a bit more intermittent. It's full on red and least half filling a pad ( sorry for over share ) X

I'm so sorry to read this. Still hoping the best for you xx

Maybe just take another test. You never know some girls do bleed and it's ok. Good luck xx
