Very normal. It's the embryo implanting it's self. I had loads and i'm now 23 weeks with a very healthy baby. xx

Not tmi. Heard loads more on here smile . It's really scary but in my experience it was all fine. If I remember rightly I had brown spottting until about 12-13 weeks.

I had it with my first around af time. It was all fine smile

I had this with both of mine, babies were fine. Dr put it down to "one of those things" which was never that helpful. When you go to the dr, tell them and they can send you for an early scan to check for a heartbeat. I'm sue all will be well. Congrats smile

I had spotting (brown, same as you) on and off throughout the few 2 months of pregnancy and I am now at 25 weeks and all is well :-). Try not to worry (easier said than done I know) x

Yes call our surgery and you will then be given an appointment with your GP who will get the ball rolling with the midwives, hospital etc - do try not to worry too much - you are pregnancy, that is wonderful news! :-))) xx

YOUR surgery, not "our" surgery" ,-)

Hey, I've had this too. Is so worrying. You won't be able to get a scan till 7 weeks but ask the docs for two Hcg blood tests 48 hrs apart. If all is ok the levels will rise a lot, if they drop or stay the same something is likely to be up. It's the earliest indication and reassurance you can have but I had to demand mine as they didn't really care as I'm only 6 weeks. Xx

Don't worry about it - I had bright red spotting until about week 14 and the baby is fine. Some women just spot. Terrifying at th time but the best thing you can do is keep a daily record (time, amount, colour) that you can show the GP. If you were miscarrying, you'd be bleeding a significant amount and likely have cramps too so don't worry about a little bit of blood. Also re the response, it is unfortunately the case that if you were miscarrying there's nothing they can do at this stage. However, I think you might find your local EPU a little bit more reassuring? Congratulations on your pregnancy!

Very, I have always had spotting everything was fine .

I think it really could go either way in early pregnancy so just chin up, tits out and keep focusing on getting to 12 weeks xxxx

Oh, I had really bad implantation cramps, too - it was like I could actually feel him burrowing in.

Sparkle there is a chance it's not good news. I'm not saying that to be a negative witch, I just don't want you to reassure yourself and then be totally unprepared for the worst.

They say that heavy, sustained red bleeding is a bad sign. While you are still spotting you are ok. Just hang on in there and I pray that you will be ok and the spotting will stop xxx
