I did a pregnancy test yesterday as i am 2 weeks late and it came up positive. really pleased. my stomach feels like i have swollowed a football, feel really bloated almost like someone sitting on my stomach all the time, i feel really tired and sense of smell really strong. this morning had a little bit of pink blood. No more today but wanted to find out whether any of you had this or whether you had any discharge? colour? i worry about any cramping or discomfort that something bad is going to happen. any advice?

Thank you!

congratulations!! i didn't have any spotting in early pregnancy. i had mild cramps, similar to period cramps, but much lighter, approximately 1-2 times per day from 5 weeks onwards (these lasted for about 5-10 minutes). deep breathing (i did yoga uzhai breath) or lying down (if possible) helped have these go away. that's normal - a sign of uterus stretching. i read in a book that bloating is also normal. if your spotting turns into bleeding, you should go see a doctor. if you get heavy bleeding, go the emergency room immediately. good luck on your pregnancy! i hope it goes well.

I had some spotting, well I would say it was more than spotting, at about 7 weeks and 12 weeks, I was worried and went to the hospital at 12 weeks but it was fine and they said its very common especially at around the time u would normally have your period.

I haven't had any spotting but I did have a whole lot of discharge (white cloudy). I could feel some hardening in my absominal area straight away, and I had some mild cramps which my sister thought was me being able to feel the implantation happening.
The discharge started about a day after my period was due, and the cramping started around the same time it would normally start if I were going to have a period.

I had a light brown show from week 5 and still felt like my period was going to start. It's my 1st and i'm 41, i've been told it's perfectly normal and it's everything moving and stretching internally. I had an MC earlier in the year, but that was very different. Now at 7 weeks and show finally stopped - hope all goes well for you.

I had brown/red spotting at around 8 weeks for about a week and all was fine. I was told by the EPU consultant that it was a hormonal thing and I am now 31 weeks along and all is well.

In my first pregnancy I had no spotting, but did have awful period like cramps (bad enough to take paracetmol) and a swollen, hard tummy from my bfp up to about 8 weeks or so. Dd is now a healthy 5 yr old.

i had spotting early on..
it could just be because your period is due, or also after sex you can get a light pinkish blood spotting. thats nothing to worry about, however if the bleeding gets worse or you get any abdonimal pain, go straight to you gp.

went for scan today and they said i'm 5 weeks 2 days so very early. they said the egg/sack looks very healthy.slightly too early to spot heartbeat. they said to come back next week.
