    hi, im 5wks 5 days preg.
    it started today, having light brown discharge when i wipe, this is what happened in aug when i had a m/c and then it went on to be full blood clots.
    please dont say brown blood is old blood:blush:

    at the mo its just brown, i rang dr who said theres no point in going for a scan as im so early preg they wont be able to tell anything, i am due to have an early scan in aprox one week just waiting for the letter to come with the date to go.
    I suppose il have to take it easy and see what happenes.

    has anyone else had this and all turned out fine?
    just looking for reasurance i guess.
    thanks

    good luck hun... will be a horrible wait, but try to relax as much as you can. (i know :dohh:) :hugs:
     
  5. Okay, not to ask TMI...but is it a lot of spotting? Or just a little?
    Could it be just implantation bleeding? I think you'll know more if it lasts a couple days.
    How are you feeling otherwise?

    Thinking of you,

    Hi,

    We had the same thing last week. My GF had some brown blood on Friday morning, and she also felt some light cramping. Nothing painful, and not alot of blood. She saw the Dr who said she thought she might be having a mis-carriage. She also complained of not feeling pregnant for a while. But a few hours later she was feeling nice and sick again!

    Anyway on Monday she had a scan, everything was normal, and I am told she saw the heartbeat.

    It is 7 weeks today! (Wednesday)

    Hi Julie,
    It is scary,I know.
    I had it with my last pregnancy,who is now a lively 3 year old boy.
    I was terrified because I had a miscarriage 18 months prior and then followed by a ruptured eptopic.

    I am 11 weeks 2 days pregnant now and at 5 weeks 3 days it happened again.
    Of course I jumped into panic mode,but it did stop and Dr told me at that stage it was very possible it was implantation bleeding as the baby burrows into the womb securely.


    I know its easy to say don't worry,everyone said it to me and it didn't stop me.
    What I will say is focus on baby and that everything is fine and will be.

    Big ((((hugs))))

    cybermum thanks , its good to hear that it turned out well after you went through the same.
    it sounds like you have been through it all.

    I had this when i was 6 weeks. The doctor said to just try and take things a little easier, its not a defnite sign of misscariage, its could be old blood since you are so early. That is why you need a scan..i was given a scan and they should let you know what is going on there and then, and give you it in a letter to return to a doctor.. When i had it, it lasted a few days, then mabye 2-3 days later i had the scan, and everything is fine and im having a healthy little boy.. Hope everything is alrite for you, try not to worry its most likely nothing, as this is common in early pregnancy...Good luck:hug: hope everythings ok

    The first time with DS it lasted a couple of days and this time a full day with cramps as well.
    I didn't have the cramps last time so this time I was more scared,but the spotting stopped and the cramps went away the following day.

    Yes I am highrisk ,I have protien S which causes the blood to thicken too much and can cause M/C though DR's didn't diagnose me until 4th PG.

    I hope everything is fine for you,are you in much pain or is it just the spotting you have?

    I had brown spotting at about 6 weeks and it carried on right through to about 11 weeks. I also had a couple of more red "bleeds" at about 7+4 and 9 weeks. I had little to no cramps but I was passing very small clots throughout which was scary. I am now 22 weeks with my little prince and everything appears to be going well! Just goes to show that bleeding doesn't always mean the worst. Hope everything is ok hunny, think positive!
