Scan was fine baby was dancing away and my/their dates matched perfectly.

Can you not call triage? How bad is the cramping? I had brown bleed and cramping at 9 weeks called triage and had a scan within an hour. Everything fine and I'm not 6 days away from due date. I'm sending positive vibes to you! flowers

Have you had sex in the past day or so?

This used to happen to me every time dh and I had sex, had to stop in the end as dtd regularly resulted in a hospital visit to check in dd1. Was very annoying but they put it down to cervical erosion.

I had this at about 13 weeks with mild cramping. DS is now 6!

The doc told me that it is relatively common and that a brownish colour is a good sign, as it's likely to be 'old' blood and probably due to hormonal changes.

This is pretty much what I was told:

Do take it easy and call your midwife / triage in the morning flowers

Try not to worry. I had a bright red bleed a week ago at 21 weeks and rang hospital and they told me to go in right away where they checked hb which was fine. The bleeding then tapered off to brown spotting for 24 hours. Fingers crossed all is well as heartbeat was fine the next day and 2 days later when midwife checked and I have felt baby moving each day.

I bled bright red blood (and quite a lot) in both my pregnancies. Things turned out ok both times. I hope you get an appt and a scan tomorrow.

I had brown spotting at 16 weeks, just when my period would have been due. If you had a good 12 week scan and it's brown blood, fingers crossed you and bubs are just fine. But EPU will want to see you - I had to be scanned etc. My BP shot up to 150/90 (it's normally about 110/60!) with the stress but everything was fine.

Thinking of you!
