Brown spotting for 5 days - 6 weeks pregnant

Hi!

I am 6 weeks pregnant and have been experiencing brown discharge for 5 days! (See picture) Some days there is more than others. And it’s not every time I go to the bathroom. It’s on and off. My doctor and midwife said it’s just old blood. But I had a miscarriage 2 months ago and it was very traumatic so I am VERY scared. Has this happened to anyone??

Hey sorry to hear about your previous miscarriage, this could just be blood from implantation but it's impossible to say especially so early on. The only thing you can really do is wait and see. I'd say wait a week and see if you're still testing positive and go from there.

I hope it all works out for you xx

Hi, don’t worry! The same is happening to me but I went for an ultrasound yesterday and everything looks ok. You should be fine too but just to be sure go for an ultrasound 🙂

I'm having the same thing at the moment too, today is the second day, I am 7 weeks. Luna3 may I ask, did you just call up your GP to get the ultrasound done or did you call the maternity dept you're registered to? Thank you

Hi Deedeesi, I went to a&e because it happened on a Saturday and they referred me to the maternity clinic 🙂

Thank you for letting me know :0 I'm glad you and baby are okay!I've just called my GP and they're calling me back in an hour so will hopefully get some more clarity then and be sent for a scan x

Thank you so much! How far along are you? Are you still experiencing brown discharge? Does yours sometimes go into the toilet and look like grainy bits?

Hope you're okay. I'm in the same boat too with the brown discharge (I'm 7 weeks). Give your GP a buzz for reassurance. Am waiting for mine to call me back today.

Wishing you all the best x

Hi! Any word on what might be going on? My doctors and midwives are not concerned and say it’s just old blood. But I am still nervous

I actually just called the GP back as this AM when she called she said it's prob due to old blood, but I can see speckles of blood as today has gone on so I've called them back to ask to refer me to Early Pregnancy Unit (Dr said that's what she would do if it got worse) so I'm hoping I can get in there tomorrow or Friday. Maybe give your midwife or GP a call directly just to put your mind at ease? I'm sure all is fine, but it'll help to put your mind at rest. It's so hard to know as the body is so complexed and this is my first pregnancy so I'm just panicking also

I understand your worry as I am in the same boat! I am going in tomorrow for an ultrasound. I think my biggest worry is an ectopic pregnancy. I am not cramping at all, but I am getting dull aches in my abdomen every now and then - which can be very normal in early pregnancy! I just want me my rested

Good I'm glad you're getting the ultrasound done, all will be okay!!! Keep me updated, will be sending positive vibes your way x

Thank you lovely x

Hi... I've had this on and off for five weeks or so.. I am now just about hitting 12 weeks. I have also had red blood quite strong flow sometimes with clots. The brown stuff with no pain or additional heavy or medium flow is ok according to the midwives and consultant I have seen. The major bleeding last week did escalate to a scan and they found the cause... But when I had a scan at 9 weeks after many weeks of spotting similar to your picture there was nothing they could point to. Main thing is red blood, more heavy flow and often pain ... That's what sonographer and doctor said to worry about. I hope that helps x
