Hello everyone. I am 6-7 wks pg and have just noticed a small amount of spotting. I have 2 DS age 4.6 and 1yr old and during my pregnancys with them I didnt have any bleeding at all. I have also had 2 MCs and had the spotting with one of the MCs and a large bleed with the other MC. Has anyone else had spotting that has been harmless? The spotting was only slight and wasnt bright red, more a brownish colour. I also feel really tired but just put this down to having 2 kids and being pg again. Any advice on what I should do ie. contact consultant tomorrow or just wait and see.
I had brown staining in pregnancy and all was well. Just keep an eye on it. Mine lasted a few days and there was no pain. Tiredness is totally normal in early pregnancy but difficult to cope with when you have youngsters around. Can anyone help you out at all?
brown blood is old blood and around 6 weeks their is further implantation so you can get red blood too
call midwife and ask for an Early pregnancy scan (you might have to avoid minimising the bleeding - don't lie but don't be too specific) - you can see the heartbeat and it can be very reassuring - beware its an internal scan
I'm currently 25 weeks pregnant, and had spotting at 6 1/2 weeks. Mine was a brownish color also. While it really frightened me, the bump is doing great. I'd call someone tomorrow, just for my own peace of mind.
I'd second what colinsmummy says and phone M/W in the morning and get checked out, just for peace of mind. As scan was before spotting.
As the spotting was brown and not fresh red blood, I am sure everything is fine but worrying about it won't help so get checked out.
i had spottong when i was 6 weeks pg, i was so worried as i had misscarries a couple of months before but my g.p told me just to lay sown as much as possible with my feet elivated and i did and ds is now 8 months hope your ok xxx
Hi Chezie, I had a similar brownish bleed at 9 wks with ds1 (now happily 11). I was told it was old blood and possibly a cervical erosion (common in pregancy). I also had a HVS which was negative as were subsequent smears. I'd give your midwife a ring to put your mind at rest,
i had spotting with both of my pregnancies and all was ok. (ds2 was like a period it was so heavy i was utterly convinced i wasn't pregnant) it never ceases to amaze me how common spotting/bleeding in pregnancy is.
