    Hiya all,

    I could really do with all your experiences and how many of you this has happened to.

    I had a bleed the other day it was light (brown blood with some small clots) went to the doctors who said everything is fine and its very normal to experience this around the time my period is due (which it would of been).

    It would really help to know who else has had this and what was it like (i know it sounds gross).

    :sad1::sad1: Thanks x x

    Did you have a scan? And for him saying its normal without a scan is odd. It can go either way. I bled and had cramps and all is well.

    Hey....

    I had a light brown bleed with small clotted bits at about 5 weeks too...I spoketo my GP when I was in gettingmy booking in done and he said it was perfectly normal too. He also said it could be my cervix as it becomes soft and engorged with blood but also during sex eroded and bleed. eugh!

    Hope this helps,

    :hugs:

    Hi there

    I spotted for two weeks on finding out I was pregnant - a mix of both red and brown - not huge amounts but more than enough to worry. Between then and 12 weeks I spotted - mostly dark brown about once a week.

    I went to the GP who referred me to the early unit who were fabulous. They could see a clot in the uterus wall where i was bleedin from - basically they told me it would either pass back into my bloodstream or out!! I went and had 4 scans before 12 weeks and it was great for peace of mind.

    As for tummy pains - I had all sorts from dull aches to sharp ones, and everythin is fine with me

    From what I was told - brown is not such a worry as red.

    So good luck, but if you are worrying see your GP to refer you asap

    I had brown discharge for 24 hours at 4 weeks and it happened again last weekend at 8 weeks but this time it lasted 5 days and I had some cramping and tummy ache. I went to hospital and they checked my cervix and it was still closed - I then had a scan which showed the baby was fine with a healthy heartbeat - massive relief, I cried (a lot). It certainly appears to be quite common to bleed old blood at around the time of when you would have had a period and this post has certainly been reassuring for me and hopefully visa versa. :thumbup:

    I'm 8 weeks along and haven't bleed at all, well no I lied. There was a small patch of bleeding back probably three four weeks ago. But nothing since. Its not always a bad thing. :hugs: You'll be okay.

    I had two bleeds at 6 and 7 weeks that were brown and two bleeds at 9 and 14 weeks that were bright red. The last one blood was dripping down the toilet. It can be very scary, I know. And as you can see everything is absolutely fine and I now only have 12 weeks until my baba is born! Hope everything is okay hun. x
