Hiya girlies I'm 5 weeks pregnant and I have been having brown spotting and also when I wipe it's on the tissue sometime abit TMI, I've been really worried about it my aunt is a midwife an she has said it could just be implantation bleeding but this is my first so I am really worried, has anyone else experienced this xxxxx
Hi I have just commented on a few other posts like this.. I will copy and paste one...
I had brown discharge from the end of week 5 all through week six. I went for a scan on 6wk2days and all was fine - heart beat etc.
Brown discharge has stopped at the start of week 7, and we paid for a private scan yesterday and everything is great .. heart beating strong and the bean has grown.
Brown doesnt always mean doom and gloom ... granted the red & clots can be worrying.
BUT ... I think its just the implantation coming out ... I read that in week 7 your cervix starts the mucas plug .. a lock down of the cervix effectively.. I honestly believe my brown discharge was my body shedding the old blood from implant etc, before the "lock down"
brown spotting can be very normal. it happened to me a couple times during this pregnancy and everything still looks good. the cervix is very sensitive during pregnancy and anything could make it bleed (sex, excercise, etc). it could also just be implantation bleeding.
BUT, if you notice that the spotting gets heavier, where it turns into red blood, with cramping or backpain, then it may mean a chemical pregnancy (I've had three of these ). for me, the spotting was only there when I wiped, I never noticed it on my underwear or anything, and it was there for about a week before the miscarriage occured . what I noticed differently about the spotting I had during this pregnancy versus the chemical pregnancy, is that the spotting got lighter rather than heavier through the days.
dont lose hope, even though it may mean impending miscarrige, it could also be VERY normal. If you have a good doctor, you should be able to call to get ur hcg and progesterone levels checked. You could also just wait to see what happens
sorry I am not the barrer of all positive news . But I remember when I used to spot, I would virgiously search the internet to find out what I was going through (both good and bad). so I just want to be honest to help anyone going through this.
Hi there, what was the outcome? All good I hope
I just found out on Sunday that I am 5 weeks pregnant. Since Monday I have had some brown discharge when I wipe and a couple of times there has been a little bit of stringiness (sounds a bit gross, sorry!). The brown discharge has been going for about 2 days now. I also had some brown discharge at 4 weeks preg for 2 and a bit days and assumed that was implantation bleeding because it was not like my period at all. I am worried because I am wondering why there would be more brown discharge again a week later.
No cramps, more like twinges. I am booked in for a scan on Friday and am freaking out. This would be the first child for my husband and I and we have been trying for a few months. It would be so devastating if I have lost the baby. I feel like my other symptoms have subsided too - breasts are not as sore, nausea has lessened. I'm petrified and really finding it hard to concentrate on anything else.
