I’m 7w5d and after going to toilet in the the middle of the night when I wiped I had jelly like light brown discharge. It was very light but just worried. Has anyone experienced similar?

I know I’m probably overreacting but me and my partner had a bad argument last night, I’m so scared the stress may have contributed to this 😞

Morning. A bit of brown discharge is often totally normal at this stage, I've had much heavier bleeding in both of my pregnancies. If it's brown blood they often say it's just some old blood working it's way out of your body.

I seriously wouldn't worry about that level of blood. I've spend weeks and weeks trawling the internet about early bleeding out of worry. So if you need any one to ask questions, just @ me

Ah thank you so much for your reassuring reply. Early pregnancy is such a scary time! Really appreciate it, will do 😊

It sounds like part of the mucous plug which renews all through pregnancy, its totall normal for little bits to come away especially after a no 2 :)

In my first pregnancy I had a lot of brown blood accompanied by pain. I had a scan to check it out and it was a cyst that had burst which is apparently very common in pregnancy (midwife called it a pregnancy cyst). Though it may not be that she did say brown blood often isn’t anything to worry about as it’s old blood.
