Constant spotting for past 2 weeks. Normal ultrasound


I'm 8w2d today and have been having brown spotting and mild pinching pain on and off for the last 2 weeks.
I have had 2 ultrasounds which both showed a strong heartbeat and bub measuring perfectly for age but am still panicking after a mmc with very similar symptoms earlier this year.

Does anyone have positive stories of brown spotting for weeks in first trimester? Finding this very emotionally taxing 😥

and welcome to BabyandBump!

Bleeding of any kind as you know can be a concern but it can also be normal. I spotted in pregnancy and I've known girls to bleed heavy and their pregnancies were just fine. Bleeding doesn't always mean the worst and I definitely understand where you are mentally!

Have you another scan booked in?

Thanks for the reply 😊
I know I keep trying to tell myself that it works out for plenty of people but it seems like there's a bad story for every good one.

Am having weekly scans at the moment and next one is this morning so fingers crossed all is still ok.

I spotted brown for just over a week between 5+6 weeks, then again at 9 weeks. Baby is fine, but I understand your worry. When I spotted at 9 weeks it was quite a bit all of a sudden and I was convinced I'd lost the baby, but it eventually went away and we were able to hear a nice heartbeat.

Really hope your spotting stops soon!!

Thanks for all your well wishes! The scan went well. Still measuring perfectly for dates with 176hb but they did find a small bleed which is the cause of the spotting.
The obstetrician and midwife didn't seem at all concerned so I am trying to stay calm and optimistic 😊.
I have another scan booked in a fortnight
