Brown spotting at 5 weeks?


Hi girls! I just wanted to know if you have had any brown spotting at 5 weeks during pregnancy? Is it an alarm? Please let me know!

I just hit the 5 week mark (5 wks 3 days) and I have been spotting (only when I wipe - and very little) on and off for about 4 days. I called my Dr. and she told me that it is common and to call her back if I start to cramp or if becomes heavier.

I stressed at 1st but know I am doing better. My 1st appt. is not until 1/18.

Good Luck to you!

i didnt spot at 6 weeks but i did spot at 14 weeks (after sex) the one time and fingers crossed nothing since, i have cramped terriby at times alway through this pregnancy and i still do now, i was convinced it was over for me on monday night.

i did however misscarry at 6 weeks, and i had nothing like you described ( i no all m/c are different) but i had the WORST pain ever for 2 hours and then bled like a period straight away, i spotted for like 10 mins then it turned into heavy bleading. i dont think you need to worry, just keep an eye on the spotting and notify your doctor xx

brown spotting is normal in pregnancy (especially early pregnancy).

im 5 weeks and 4 days pregnant and i've been experiencing some light pink bleeding/spotting for the last two days but i know its nothing serious. ive also been experiencing cramping which i didnt think would happen, but i know again that its nothing serious.

if your brown spotting gets heavier, then go see a doctor!

I was spotting around 8/9 weeks for about 11 days. It was such a mess and I was so terrified. Then I had a US at 9 weeks and the tech said it's just old blood. As long as it doesn't turn pink or bright red, you don't need to worry. I know it's easier said than done....

Me too, brown spotting and light pink bleeding at five weeks but seems to be pretty common. I'm nine weeks and have cramps all the time - which also seems to be common.

Sure it will be fine, good luck xx
