Im a little bit late but ive just had a small amount of brown blood.

Last month i had a bit more than this of brown blood before period started. This doesnt usually happen though, what does this mean?

Thanks in advance x

How far gone are you? It's normal especially at early pregnancy but have a word with your midwife to be sure and put your mind at rest. I think during early pregnancy it's to do with embedding ( please correct me if I'm wrong)

Brown blood is old blood. Might be because you're pregnant, might not. Wait and see what happens, do a test, consult your GP if you're worried.

Oops just re read what you put! So ignore my answer it makes no sense I assumed you were pregnant already sorry ! blush (should have gone to specsavers)

Haha! Its okay. Im doing a test in the morning but im scared im going to come on fully in the night sad i went to the drs today because in 3 years i havent conceived :/ but they wouldnt do anything today, i have to go back in 3 weeks for a blood test, but i had a blood test today for anaemia and hes asked for the hormones to be included as well so hopefully ill get some answers.

I know i shouldnt but i cant help keeping my fingers crossed again this month... just in case

I would go back to the Dr ASAP because if you're having bloodwork done to investigate fertility issues you also need CD2 or 3 bloods taken. Would be good if you could get them done the same cycle as the CD 21 bloods.

Woah wth is cd21?

I believe brown spotting prior to your period can be a symptom of low progesterone which your GP can pick up on blood tests.
