I'm about 4/5weeks with my second pregnancy and I've started very light brown spotting with some dark brown strings - very thin but it's not filling a pad, I only see it when I wipe. There's only very mild to no cramping. Needless to say I'm terrified. I'm 40 and realise stats are not in my favour. I'm told there's nothing anyone can do for me this early but I'm getting so anxious to know either way whether it's just spotting or whether it's a mc.
I had implantation spotting a fortnight ago could it be more implantation? Really clutching at straws here for a positive outlook.
I have experienced the same thing in my second pregnancy too. I'm around 5/6wks now and it's just stopping. I did have the coil in when I got pregnant so that was removed and my spotting got worse. I had a scan last week and was convinced it would be bad news but things were looking good and growing. I was told that Brown is old blood if it turns red and soaks a pad then to contact the hospital
I've had this with two out of three pregnancies. It continued off and on for a few weeks but I was told it was nothing to worry about. And they were right. Just old blood and cells clearing out I think.
I had this. Went on for four weeks and sadly didn't end well. May be worth getting bloods done to check your hcg and progesterone are rising properly? I wish I'd been more persistent with Docs and midwife. (I never once had any nausea which makes me wonder if progesterone was low hence dragging on so long)
