Brown stringy discharge


Hi lovely people,
I'm 7 wks with my first and very excited, apprehensive, overwhelmed, HAPPY!
Im also a bit worried- the last few days I've been passing brown stringy discharge (seeing it on tissue after weeing)/ getting some brown spotting/ some mild pain-cramps. I went to emergency the other day and had both an ultrasound and transvaginal scan, to determine whether I had an ectopic or any other complications.It was amazing to see an actual gestational sac and yolk sac and a small shape that was the embryo! They measured me and said that I was earlier than i thought, thinking I was 9 wks when i was 7.Thats all irrelevant i think, but i AM worried about this discharge! Has anyone else experienced it? Any explanations or thoughts are very very welcome. Thankyou first trimester mums and mums to be! xo

Hi hunny
I had quite a bit with my daughter. On the scan it showed that i was clearly still bleeding around the placenta and inplantation site. So everything was considered fine

And the CM is brown so it is old blood that as taken a few days to travel "out".

Sounds like your bean is thoroughly burrowing into your uterus

They mentioned that it could be the first signs of miscarriage, but not likely.If it is the case, i need to sit it out and wait and see. Either way, i have to go in and get another scan in 2 weeks, that way they'll be able to see that it isnt/wasnt a miscarriage (or a missed miscarriage) and also to check for the best case scenario of the beating heart.They did the scans to rule out an ectopic preg.I've just been reading posts on here in regards to the sringy stuff and it seems that many women are told not to worry and that it is common.Im going with that! So you are having your second. How is it all going?

Tu123- the sounds of lil bean burrowing into the uterus is music to my ears!Thankyou for your thoughts.This is my first day posting,I joined in Sept when i thought I had conceived but it was wishful thinking it turned out.I feel quite 'spun-out' really that Im am actually pregant, having had dreamed about it for so long. it feels so nice to have a voice and also feel the support! I think maybe , i hope, i will start to feel more grounded about it all after i tell my family.It sounds really strange, and this might highlight my my' spun-out' feelings but Im feeling ,um other-worldly.Haha, that is the only word I can come up with.Oh dear, haha.
Yep so I have been reading today that the sign of 'brown stuff' is common.
Hope to seeyou on here later on! xo

Did they see a heartbeat on your scan? I had too been having brown spotting for the last few days with cramping. I went for an emergency scan yesterday and they could not find a heartbeat and said the baby was 7-8 weeks when my dates put me closer to 11 weeks. The sonographer said it didnt look good but I am going back in 2 weeks to have another scan to check if there has been any progress. I am praying for a miracle. She did see a fetal pole so maybe I have got my dates wrong and when I did a pregnancy test at home it took literally 1 second for two very dark pink lines to appear so I pressume my hcg levels are still very high.

There is always hope and I have my fingers crossed for you xx

Hi Blu,
No they didnt see a heartbeat.They said it was too early.Initially my dates had me at 9weeks, so similar situation to you i guess.However, my dates were taken from my last period, Oct 24. which was an unusally early period for me.So that may or may not complicate things in regards to dating-eg- unusually timed ovulation maybe? But if i did ovulate two weeks after my period, it would make me 6 weeks from ovulation (2weeks younger) afterall.I ASSUMED during the time of te scan when they said it was measuring 6 weeks that it means 6 weeks OLD i.e from ovulation.
Are you dating yours from your last period, as the medics do initially? If so you may have your dates off? Or are you dating yours from your suspected ovulation/conception date?
Yes, there is always hope! I have read that a heart beat is hard to detect on a sonogram even at 7-8 weeks for some people.
I too have to go back in two weeks for a scan to check it is growing/still there.Be in touch and stay positive!
Fingers crossed for you too and thankyou! xo

Hi lovelies, and hi cocoon love!

How are you? I'm about 4-5 weeks and noticed the same thing. I see a light beige / light brown discharge when I wipe. It happened just this morning. I'm actually very worried, but trying not to entertain or drown in my negative thoughts. I hope this turns out well for us. Sending good vibes and fingers crossed. keep us updated.
