4weeks and brown discharge

(5 Posts)

I found out this week that I'm 4 weeks and 5 days pregnant... absolutely over the moon but last Saturday had a day of brown discharge- in hindsight Ive put it down to implantation bleeding.

Problem is I've had brown discharge again today.... is this normal? Should I be worried? I'm panicking a bit now! Had a few very vey minor cramps/ aches all week but nothing at all painful - mostly I thought it might be wind!

Some women do spot and it's totally normal. Brown blood is generally less of a concern than bright red, apparently. Lots of women on here report full on torrential bright red bleeds with clots and their babies are fine. I think at your stage you can only really wait and see but although my midwife referred me to the EPAU when I had brown spotting last week (10 weeks) she really wasn't that bothered and was obviously doing it to reassure me.

Came on to basically echo Idiot. Brown is relatively reassuring and more so if you're only having discharge, and again if the cramping is as minor as you say. Keep an eye on yourself but I doubt a MW would raise an eyebrow right now.

I had brown / pink clot discharge at 5 - 6 weeks. I contacted an early maternity unit and had tests... it was scary but all was fine. I'm now almost 12 weeks with things going well so far.
The ladies at the maternity unit said if the bleeding is red and heavy or if there is bad cramping that stops you in your tracks then it is alot more concerning. Just keep an eye on it and see how things go. Bleeding / spotting is fairly common in the early weeks
