Hi Ladies, I've seen some threads on here before about brown discharge in early pregnancy, and I know that it combined with bleeding can be a sign of miscarriage, or can be fine.
A week ago I had a small amount of fresh blood, and then brown discharge on and off for a week. I've had cramping all through my pregnancy so far (even at 2 weeks!). I had a scan on Monday and the baby had a heartbeat, which was great news. Today the brown became a little flecked with red again, (but just a little).
Has anyone else had a combination of brown and red discharge on and off at the beginning of their pregnancy and made it through?
It's my first and I don't want to be hassling the midwife, but trying to work out when to be worried and when not?! I'm only 7 weeks.
Unfortunately I cannot offer a success story yet, but I certainly hope so and wish you all the best! A heartbeat is certainly a good sign. I have the same grey/brown discharge, now since Sunday night, today for the first time with fresh red blood. It is nerve-wrecking! I understand that the chances are 50/50, and I also know some friends who had bleeding and made it all the way through.
Unless you experience any pain or heavy bleeding, I guess I would wait and see and have another scan around week 10, if I were you.
I had the same thing with DD1 and it turned out to be a cervical erosion, baby was absolutely fine. Now pregnant with DD2 and at 10 weeks suddenly had quite a lot of fresh blood. It is so scary. Had a scan where they saw a small clot or something just below the placenta, a sub chorionic bleed. This cleared up and baby is ok thankfully
Did they notice anything on the scan, like where the bleeding may be coming from? If not, could be a cervical erosion as baby seems to be fine? Hope all is well, good luck.
