I'm sure this has been asked a million times I 5weeks today and everytime I wipe I'm getting brown coloured and I'm cramping quite abit I was at the epu last week were they did bloods 1st was 380 just under 48hours later they was 602 they did scan me at 4+4 I no it's way to early they said they could see something but didnt no if it was the start of a very early pregnancy or the start of my lining coming away but my bloods would tell them which they went up around 66% so they booked me in again for a scan on the 18th but the cramping is getting worse I just so worried x
Brown colour every time I wipe - Fertility Network UK
Bless you, those early weeks are such an anxious time, waiting for the scan. I would say a bit of cramping is to be expected as everything starts to stretch out. As long as you're not having heavy red bleeding (and even that can sometimes end up being ok- as I found out!) then I'd say you're probably fine. Try your best to relax as much as possible, worrying won't change the outcome ❤️x
It is such a worry I've had 2x5day blasts transferred on the 25th October the last week I been spotting well when I wipe brown but now I'm getting some strong cramps and a little bit of brown colour on a pad not much about the size of a penny but when I'm wiping seems to be turning more a red colour do you think it's worth ringing the epu again in the morning or the clinic? Xx
I would say the EPU swill probably struggle to see much at this stage lovely, I was scanned at 5+3 after having the same symptoms you're describing and they just managed to see the heartbeat and an area of bleeding called a subchorionic haematoma which is what was causing my bleeding. Frustratingly there isn't much that can be done to ease your mind, I understand exactly what you're going through and it's really scary so I do feel for you x
They scanned me last week at 4+4 as they was worried about ectopic as I have a history of them they said they could see a very little something but they said that they didnt no if it was the start of my lining coming away or the start of a very early pregnancy and that my bloods would tell them more and my bloods went up by 66% xx I'm hoping that is something like I've not and it's not the baby xx
Oh no. Any bleeding just sends me into a panic, brown or not.
I had brown spotting from week 5 to 8 and a half and 2 bigger red bleeds and all was fine. I was beside myself but like Kitcat12 I too had a haematoma that eventually repaired itself.
Your HCG looks good, all you can do is rest and try to distract yourself.
Fingers crossed it’s all ok xx
Thank you hun I just think it's so scary any type of blood I just ticking down the days for my scan on the 18th and praying everything ok because I've never had spotting before makes things worse me as it's all new... having red bleeds must be even more scary I wish we had a magic wond or a crystal ball x
Hi both, im very early days at 6 weeks and 2 days and have been bleeding red and brown on and off since Thursday, so booked in an earlier scan for this morning..... All looks fine and we saw a heartbeat! Nurse said she couldn't see any reason for the bleeding. I know when you first see any colour blood it is incredibly worrying but please try and stay positive. Wishing you both the best of luck xxx
How far are you then I'm 5weeks 1 day today I'm ment to have a scan at the clinic on the 21st but I'm having one at the epu clinic on 18th so I have to let the clinic no what's happening after scan I get cramping every day some days worse then others I bet your wishing the days away like me xx I hope everything goes ok and you will have to keep me updated xx
Mine was just a slight discolouration on wiping, for about 5 days then turned to bright red blood and heavy. I had already taken myself to A&E on the second day of brown blood and they had told me high chance baby had stopped growing as they couldn’t even measure it properly. I was supposed to be 10 weeks. They re-booked me a week later to check on scan but I’d miscarried 2 days before. So that scan ended up being a check to see if it had all gone. Which it had☹️
I had a scan last week but I was only 4weeks 4days so it's so early and they couldnt really see anything they did say they can see alot of gas and they could see a very small something a few mm theybsaid they didnt no if it was the start of my lining coming away or the start of the end of a very early pregnancy or the start of a very early pregnancy they said my lining was quite thick 18+mm xx injustice really have a bad feeling about this brown spotting like you it's like a discoloured brown on the tissue xx
I just really hope it isn’t! You have a chance x my friend had brown bleeding and then a big red bleed. She thought she’d lost baby but she hadn’t it was a haemorrhage ( it had a proper name) she’s now 17 weeks pregnant and it’s a little girl 💖
It’s not always bad, it’s just been bad for me. I lucky have two children 14 & 16 years old! Never had any bleed or anything with them. So to me it’s bad news.
My other friend had spotting all the way to about 18 weeks with both her girls and they are now 2 & 3 years old x
Just hope xx sending you love!
Keep in touch x if it’s ok I’ll follow you, I have a bad memory and have lost track of people
I have a son who's nearly 11yrs old I never had no spotting with him I had all pregnancy symptoms with him I got caught naturally.. I've been ttc since having him and but lost them or they been ectopic and with each loss I've always had brown spotting so it makes it all the more worrying for me...I also had a mmc earlier this year with my 1st fresh round of ivf didnt have any signs baby had died other then a gut feeling till I went to a scan at mother care at 11+weeks..I have moments were I think to myself wow I'm pregnant then the worry kicks in with everything that's going on and I'm to scared to dream... I try talking to my fella but hes a bloody man they dont understand like use women he just thinks I'm being silly but he thought I was being silly when I had the mmc I'm prays this baby here to stay and my gut feeling is wrong it's so hard to be positive when I've had the last 10 years of loss my son was my miracle baby do miracle happen twice I pray they do xx
Oh bless you. That’s such a long time time. I know exact how you feel, just have that feeling. I had this last time and my partner was angry at me for it, he said I never got excited. I told him when we have passed 12 weeks I will. It never happened.
Did all your bloods come back ok? I presume doctors did some to look for blood clotting disorders, immune disorders and thyroid disorders? You can push for them on the nhs, did they ever send off the miscarriage for pathology?
I’m having my bloods done in 2 weeks and still waiting for the results of last mc. I had to beg for this, they offered it private. Should be getting results anytime. Not sure how it works either, whether I’ll get a letter or the results sent to doctors?
I hope this will give me something to work with
I've never had any blood test to check for anything I'm private so everything cost money and we haven't got alot of it at the min as weve spent what we have on the ivf.. that feeling you just no in your gut.. that's what I have I've had it everytime and always been right if I'm wrong this time I swear I will pee my pants or pass out or something lol I had my hcg checked last week when was at hosp they was 380 and went up to 602 in just under 48 hours the hosp was happy with that I just have to ride it out till the scan on Monday.. when I had the mmc I sign to have test done on the baby they all came back clear they said everything seems how it should and have no reason for why it happened which I just had to swallow.. if the worse case happens I'm giving up I cant do this any more it's about broken me I feel so alone my fella dont get any of it I dont blame him hes a man lol my son craves a brother or sister hes begging and begging me to do ivf again as he dont know this time round as I didnt want him upset if the worse happens again... did you get the doctor to run the test? My doctor is s**t not worth the paper her name is written on since she has known we paid private for our treatment she has been horrible so I try not to go to the doctors now I rang the epu myself as they know me quite well there few the years... I hope something comes back on your test so they can fix it(I mean that in the nicest possible way) it horrible not having a reason why this keeps happening isn't it.. so sorry for your loses I hope you get you miracle soon xx
Hey, When I went in to EPAU for scan last time I asked them if I can have tests, they said to me then they don’t until you’ve had 3 losses but I begged them as I’m 40 and don’t have a lot of time left to conceive. They sent a letter asking my doctor to do it, the doctors receptionist rang to book me in a week later. She said it’s generally up to doctors whether they do or not before 3 mc’s. I was lucky I suppose. I’m not 100% on what tests they'll be. But I’m armed with research now.
I’m hoping they’ll test for what I wrote above and also check my AMH, FSH and progesterone levels. I have a feeling they won’t be prepared for this but I will ask nurse what they are testing for when I get there then ask her if she can do others if it’s not on the list. I’m sure she’ll say she’ll have to ask doctor so my plan is to ask if she can take the extra blood incase they say yes so they can do it straight away.
Good luck on Monday x
Such a worry, but try not to let yourself completely freak out. I was told that approx 25% of women experience bleeding in early pregnancy and that even if I had fresh, red blood not to panic as they’d seen a sub-chorionic haematoma on an early scan at 6+4 weeks (thankfully with a heartbeat). So it’s entirely possible that what you’re experiencing will turn out to be nothing to worry about. Keep that in mind and maybe treat yourself to loads of lovely self care over this next week until your scan to help with the positive vibes and relaxation.
I’ll be keeping everything crossed for you lovely🤞🤞xx
I’ve had one too hun, so understand that it’s always going to be at the forefront of your mind.
I’m almost 16 weeks now and barely had any symptoms so far, especially at the beginning. Not been sick once and just the odd bit of fleeting nausea. We’re supposed to consider ourselves lucky, but the lack of reassurance is soo hard! xx
Ohh bless you.. I know it’s hard but try not to worry or stress too much as it won’t help you.
Brown spots is a good sign. I had bleeding with clots on my 5-6weeks. It was very scary but I did try not too stress as it won’t help me and my lil warrior just try to focus your mind into something different and wait until your next scan that they can see a proper heart beat by 6weeks. Do know your lil warrior is fighting for you both. All the best xx
I pray my little embryos and fighting to stay with me x that must of been so scary did you get a lot of cramping with it? I found this weekend I've had quite abit of cramping but woke up this morning and it's gone no brown blood aswell so far but yesterday I was the same morning was fine then later in afternoon it started again xx
Hey, I had twinges but not lots. Every pregnancy is different. I had it every time I wiped. I was giving a head wobble by the nurse who basically said look, brown blood is old blood and pregnancy can get into all of your books and crannies and make your body do odd stuff.
I know how hard right now feels, just know that worrying is not going to make you feel any better or change anything. Know that right now you have your bean in there and it’s being awkward already! Try to swap the negative thoughts when they come in to say to yourself No, stop that thought, it serves no purpose and will just make me feel sad! Get some yummy treats in and try your best to be kind to yourself, you are already going through so much and are doing a cracking job xxxxxxx
I've just come upstairs for a shower while the fella and my son are at the gym I've brought all the chocolate and juice up and put it on the bed for when I get out gona put Netflix on and try and distract myself and hope and pray for the best out come I no no matter how much I worry isn't going to change things it's just all the blood waiting that drives me mad gives me to mich time to think thank you hun xx
I feel your pain its so stressful when you see it and think the worst , I had bright red bleeding , loads of cramping and pinkish brown discharge and still getting some spotting but last week i got a scan at 6 weeks and found out im having twins and seen both heartbeats so plz try not worry ❤ big congrats too 😁 xx
I had bright red blood really heavy twice with some clots I honestly thought it was over , each time it lasted around a day each time and I have had loads of spotting too .
Yes I had 2 transferred , I really didnt expect the next I got .
Epu advised that it happens and lot and its unexplained which is a pain.
Has your clinic offered you bloods to check your hcg levels to make sure they are rising?
Thanks and good luck ❤
You do hear a lot of girls on here having bleeding and going on to have healthy babies so try and stay positive , I know its easier said that done, big hugs ❤ xx
I'm feeling alittle more positive its stopped now wow is this a head fuck.. as you no you see blood and its game over ya head is all over the place.. I rang clinic but will ring again tomorrow to see what they say they not offered me bloods just a scan on the 21st which will make me 6+4 but epu scanning me on the 18th epu have gave me 2 blood test 1st was 380 2nd was 602 and I was 5+4, I've just took at clear blue aswell and it's gone up to 3+ which make me feel better as last week it was 2 3. I'm to let clinic no how it goes at the scan at the epu. maybe its because I've had 2 embryos I'm gona try my best to stay positive till anything is set in stone the bleeding keeps coming and going and the clots are brown it's not like a period its lighter but the cramps arent very nice and feel sick tonight .. you must of been so scared how do you cope it's so hard I'm trying to hind it all from my son aswell I think it's another day on the sofa tomorrow watching Netflix thank you so much for you reply 😘😘
It is such a touch journey and I totally get what you mean my son is 3 and trying to stay positive while trying to attend to him is so hard.
Thats great news thdy have been rising as I kept bleeding but mines were rising which the epu said was good news so fingers crossed plenty of netflix and rest 🤗❤
I have another scan tomorrow and so scared due to previous mmc , such a stressful journey isnt it xx

Thats good you have extra scans too it puts your mind at rest.
My symptoms have still gone wednesday isnt coming quick enough to check if they are ok 😔 I'm just praying they are after all bad luck we have had xx
I still have no symptoms I hear a lot of people say the dont have symptoms when having twins you be fine 2 more days.. I understand because it really does drag dont it... x
I went in the scan room crying my eyes out ready for bad news I'm so shocked I really I'm over the moon my fella seems to still think theres 2 in there and 1 is hinding as I asked if there defo 1 she was like it's so close to your wall that it's hard to see she found it hard to measure because of were it was she said there could be 1 hinding but I'm sure if there was she would of found it... im so happy I get more scans same as you but still it's hard waiting for them if you think if it was normal we probably wouldn't even no we was pregnant yet so hang in there im sure sooner rather then later your symptoms will kick in and you be wishing you never had any..lol being sick left right and centre x I'm so happy for the both of us xx let me no how Wednesday goes xx
Aww ❤ I think when you have in your mind its not going to work its so hard to think any different isnt it , but im so happy for you .
And there could still be one I remember speaking to a girl on here when one showed up on her 1st scan then at the next she found out it was twins 😊 would be a lovely surprise for you both if it was at your next scan ❤
You are so right lol thw symptoms last week were so bad but now they are away im worrying and wanting them back , the joys and stress of ivf lol.
Yes I will let you know how wednesday goes 🤞😊 xx
Youd think as soon as we are pregnant that we would be happy but every week brings a new stress this ivf world is so so so hard I never remember it being like this when I fell naturally with my son xx I'd love twins but I'm happy with 1 baby god I'd be happy with a football team if I could carry them all at once 🤣🤣 symptoms come and go yesterday I felt so sick I kept putting it down to worry but maybe it was a symptom starting to come and boobs was sore today nothing again xx
Google is the devil we only ever focus on the worse case stay of it you will only stress yourself more I cant talk as I'm just as bad 🙈🤣 he goes mad at me so now I wait till hes asleep 🤣🤣 the things we do to our selfs xx I'm sure Wednesday will be fine but I understand how worrying it is xx sending loads of good vibes I'm sure your likkle twinines will be perfect 😘😘😘
I'm terrible at googling everything I send my self crazy 🙈🙈 I wish I could relax and enjoy but with what happened last time I've said I just need to get to 12weeks and then I be fine but I no I'm talking rubbish maybe when we start to feel them move we will be more at ease xx let me no how your scan goes I'm sure they will be fine xx twins is ama8your truly blessed xx
I new they would be fine so pleased for you😘😘 whens your next scan? It's so nice you being scanned so often you get to watch the grow amazing...♥️ I find it amazing how they start of and turn in to likkle humans and even more amazing!ing that you have 2.. x the feeling you must get when you see both heartbeats.. x I loved seeing my little sprog heart beating away it's just amazing I am so so happy for you. I think we look for symptoms to much as we know so early so we try our best to find them when in normal pregnancy we would only just know and probably wouldn't have any yet.. you watch this week ya gona end up as sick as a dog lol I'm starting to feel sicky I think it comes and goes boobs are a little tender if poked 🙈🤣🤣
It is amazing isnt it, I think even more when we worry so much something is wrong.
I know I bet we both end up like that and will wish we were back to having few symptoms 😂😂
My next scan is 2 weeks , when do you get your next scan? It is amazing the difference a few weeks make.
Are you still with your clinic or just nhs now? xx
I'm still with the clinic I have my scan with them next Thursday I will be 7+4 I'm worried about my scan because when I went for my scan at 11+ weeks they told me baby died a 7+3 so if I'm honest I'm shitting myself but praying all is ok.. then ive got another scan with the epu at 9+3 then think I will have to wait to see baby again at the 12week unless I book a private one so glad you seen them both I bet its amazing I cant wait to see how much baby has changed in a week probably not much haha I really want strong symptoms so I no all is ok but I no if I did then I'd be wishing the wasnt as strong we just cant win can we 🙈🙈 xx
I totally get your worry, i went for my 12 weeks scan and discovered my mmc was at 8 weeks it is such a stressful time but im sure everything will be fine hun ❤
And you will see a big change in a week 😁 mines looked like 2 little blobs last week and yesterday had little arm buds and legs so cute.
Next thursday isnt too far away , im so excited for you 😊
We sure cant win 🙈 i felt terrible with symptoms but having them gave me some peace of mind, the nurse said think of it as just lucky lol xx
Hi hun I think I'm starting to get symptoms I'm feeling sicky if I dont eat and wow I'm starting to get very hungry 🙈🤣 how far are you hun? I'm praying everything is ok next I'm staying positive it is hard after having a mmc so scared it will happen again but positive think while I'm starting to feel like this it's a good sign xx
I have my fingers and toes crossed for you hun... x I really did shit myself when I seen red blood and thought it was all over but thankfully it's not and baby is still there.. x it seems very common in ivf to have bleeding plus i seen you bloods was over a 1000 at 19dp that's a good number I would stay dont stress but I'm not one to not to... x do you have any symptoms? I had none and I think maybe I may feel alittle sick every other day but bar that I feel normal I wish I had pregnancy symptoms xx what have you clinic said? How much blood are you losing? Xx
Thank you, yes people on here have shared lots of similar stories so 🤞 I have sore boobs but then not sure if that’s the progesterone? No other real symptoms, think it’s hard to tell when we are on so many meds! The clinic were quite reassuring, the nurse said she’s seen women on the floor in pain and losing blood and still go on to have babies, they said until we have the scan it’s hard to tell really and 50:50 whether it’s a miscarriage or embryo is ok. It seemed like quite a bit Sunday but today and yesterday is just spotting really xx
Core... how far gone are you? Can you ring you local epu? That's what o did they seen me straight away I first went there at 4week 4days as I mo my clinic wouldn't see me and make me wait and with everything I have already been through I wasnt willing to sit it out and wait I wanted to no... it's so stressful.. I'm not 100% sure but i think if your hcg is 1000/1500 they will scan you it's worth trying just to put your mind at rest when they scanned me they said they couldnt see were the bleeding was coming from and sometime this happens and sorts it self out even though that's not great to hear as any sort of blood is very scary xx
Core.. please dont lose hope I no it's hard now I started my first fresh round of ivf in march this year and it worked I got my positive had my scan at clinic seen heartbeat then I booked a scan at mothercare I would of been 11+ week my baby had no heartbeat I was broken I didnt no what to think feel I said I would never ever put myself through this pain and heart ache again I went to my follow up and still didnt want to do it again then something snapped I didnt want to give up my dream I wanted a baby I did it again and transferred 2 embryos and got my positive again this is were I am now it's hard and it's so scary every day I'm still praying baby stays with me please take time to cry feel sad but most of all be kind to yourself you will find it in you again I did right now it's not the time for you to think like that but in the days weeks to come you will you will be stronger..x I still cry now about my baby I lost it breaks my heart to think my baby would be due in January xx if you ever want to talk you can always private msg me I no the pain your feeling right now it's hard but please no your not alone sending you loads of love 😘😘😘 I'm so sorry your going through this 😘😘
My symptoms have totally went tomorrow isnt coming fast enough.
Yes i know what you mean i keep wanting them to come back lol.
I havent called my clinic as they discharged me last week after my scan so now I have to wait until scan tomorrow to hopefully see my heartbeats again , the bleeding has gone but i had reduced symptoms with my previous mmc so worrying myself sick 😔.
You must be so excited its the best feeling seeing you little bean ❤ xx
I had the same with my mmc my symptoms went all together but I have seen and heard alot of women with twins there symptoms come and go alot so fingers crossed that's the same for you we just need to get as far as to feel baby moving then I'm sure we will both feel so much better just seems a million miles away xx
