    I am 5 weeks tomorrow (give or take a day) and I have been spotting. I wiped yesterday afternoon and mixed in with lot of CM was pinky/brown discharge which has really scared me. I was getting a few niggly cramps but nothing too strong.

    This morning, the same when I wiped. But if I touch my cervix, no blood. I have had no cramps today but am extremely tired and my back really hurts.

    Is this normal or should I get it checked out ? :cry:

    hi, I'm sorry that you have been spotting. I had this with my first pregnancy and went straight to see GP. Unfortunately at only 5 weeks it could be older implantation bleeding or it could be something more sinister. My results were inconclusive for about two weeks but sadly I lost my little bean. This isn't the case for everyone and sometimes bleeding does not mean its all over. GP can test HCG levels and that will tell them more about how you are progressing. Hope this helps xx

    It only happened once yesterday and once today. No pain today at all. Its not bright red and its not constant. I think I will go to my doctor first thing and demand an emergency appointment.

    Oh thats very more than likely what has caused it,and also the constipation might well have something to do with cramping to.Iv also been constipated and the pain is awful if you cant go.I have been drinking as much orange juice as i can when im constipated and high in fibre fruit and vegatables.

    I would absolutely go and see your GP. I am not sure if they will send you to the early pregnancy assessment unit for a scan. Thats what they did for me but I was six weeks. When they scanned me I had experienced a missed miscarriage which was really upsetting, but the doctor reassured me that these are rare. Even the sonographer thought that when she scanned me everything would be fine because I had only had light spotting which was brown and only once in the day and then it went. That was just my experience and I don't want to worry you because in most cases its to do with implantation or to do with a small tear internally as the egg buries deeper. Good Luck hun xx
