Am I miscarrying?

Try not to worry until you've been checked out. A lot of women get implantation bleeding which sounds similar to what you're describing. Mine was pale pink, and I'm 16 weeks today and heard my baby's heartbeat this afternoon.

I hope it goes well.

It's best to go to the hospital and get checked out. I recently thought I was having a miscarriage, went to the hospital and it turned out to be ectopic. Not trying to scaremonger or anything, but it's best to be safe.

Def call the hospital and see someone from the Early Pregnancy Unit. They can do a Hgc blood test which measures the pregnancy hormone level and then they do another blood test again 48 hours. If it is a normal pregnancy the hormone levels would have doubled and will continue increasing etc. Unfortunatly, this is how I found out that mine wasn't normal/going ahead but at least I could start to deal with it and prepare myself. The not knowing was killing me and I felt a lot better once I had it confirmed. This does not mean that this is going to happen to you but they can do the test at the EPU. I wish you the best and will pray for you X

Phone the EPU just to be on the safe side, but as RJM17 said, brown blood is usually old.

best of luck xx

If its brown blood it is normally old blood! I wouldn't wait til next week though. Can you call your local maternity hospital or tell the doctors its an emergency?? They have to keep appoinments for emergencies.
It could be nothing but always better to be checked.
Good luck and let us know how u get on x
