I found out I'm pregnant with my second two weeks ago. Sorry TMI but at about 5 wks, I went to the loo in the morning and there was a bit of pale brown discharge when I wiped. I've had a bit of brown discharge a couple of times since. I'm worried I've miscarried. I've had mild cramps a couple of times too, but I think I've only noticed them because I'm paranoid.
Because I'm currently living somewhere temporarily I don't have a GP so I haven't had a doctor's confirmation that I'm pregnant (despite doing 5 different pregnancy tests of different brands, all saying positive)I feel like the pregnancy doesn't seem real. I was thinking about calling my local midwives unit but as it's so early on, there is not really anything they can do either way so I've put it off. But I keep worrying.
Has anyone had pale brown/peach discharge during early stages of pregnancy?
Don't panic just yet. It may be an implantation bleed. I had pale pink discharge and cramps for a few days in those early weeks and now I've reached 24 weeks and have a friend who had pink and brown discharge early on and she's at about 14 weeks now so implantation bleeds do happen! If u end up with what is more like a heavy period with bright red blood (at 5 wks) then that may be a miscarriage. So hang on in there, hopefully it is nothing to worry about but i agree. Speak to a midwife to get some reassurance. And also, when i went to the Dr cause i was pregnant he just said congratulations and told me positive tests are never wrong! Hope u get on ok.
I had brown discharge (like old blood) through the first 12 weeks or so of my first pregnancy. I had two early scans and swabs. No cause was ever found. I also had quite a bit of cramping/aching in the early weeks, but ended up with a very healthy baby who arrived at 40 weeks.
With this pregnancy (4th) I had a few appearances of a peachy/orange discharge around 5-7 weeks once again accompanied by spells of aching and cramping sensations. Again no cause was found and I'm due in early May.
You can contact the midwives/your local hospital's Early Pregnancy Unit and they will arrange a scan if they're worried. Having had a fair few early scans though, there often isn't anything to see at this stage and they seem to have more of a watch and wait policy - unless you are having other symptoms such as severe one-sided pain.
I had this, then i had a feeling i just couldnt shake off, then i lost our first :/ but i was 9 weeks at this point. i dont mean to scare you but sometimes with the way you feel and the instincts u just know. This. Time round, i feel completely different had really strong hormones the lot xx
Fwiw you can register temporarily in a gp practice if you need to, there is a form you full out which a practice can give you that allows you to use their practice for 3 months. So please don't feel that you can't access Dr support if you need it
Thanks so much for the congrats! Totally overwhelmed with the news to be honest! I'll have thee children under 18 months in October!!!! Give me strength! Also was told they'll be identical! Sorry about all the exclamation marks! Luckily when I broke the news to my husband last night he was over the moon!
Wow that's amazing news what a switch in emotions I bet! Currently sat in docs waiting to ask for a 5/6 week scan as I've had some one sided pain, probably wind or an existing problem as I've had similar before pregnant but want to be sure. Fingers crossed I get a good outcome like you!
