    I had this too at 6 weeks - I know it's terrifying but my doctor assured me it was normal. It stopped after a few days.

    Take care

    try not to panic hun - i know that is easier said than done. Can you ring your midwife and see what she suggests. I am sure it is something and nothing- i think they say brown blood is old blood don't they? didnt stop me freaking out last week though.
    sending great big hugs hun - let us know what they say. Will be thinking of you. xxxx

    I'm sure the scan will show you're fine. Good luck, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

    Maccy, canĀ“t you go to a hospital where they have an Gynecology Emergency Unit?
    You can walk in there without appointment saying that you have been spotting and eventually say that you are cramping. They should do a scan right there and then.

    Fingers crossed for you hun!

    To be honest it can go either way no matter what color it is. I had alot of bleeding. Pink, brown orangy (people told me it was red) then brown. And my baby is so far ok. You can never be too safe. Keep up what you are doing and try to get checked out. It sucks to worry :( I waited 11 days till I was seen and 12-13 days till a scan. It was a nightmare to wait that long.

    I know its easier said than done but try not to worry too much. I had brown mucus and red blood on and off during weeks 5-7, turns out it was a cervical erosion that I had had for a while but the doctor said could have been made worse after my m/c.

    I would ring your hospital and try and get an earlier scan, Monday is ages away and you will just stress out. I decided to go for a private scan in the end as the NHS were a bit usless. Maybe you could do this? xx

    Yeah thanks girls ur right though I should just go to the hospital but I only had that one bit of loss this morning nothing else no pain except fpr my kidneys but guessing thats the UTI so gonna wait it out..if I had the money I would go private but I don't so I am gonna sit tight till Mon. We are all away this weekend anyway so hopefully that will take my mind off it.. However if I do get anymore loss or pain I will go straight to the hospital!

    Thanks girls lets hope this time next week I'll be a happy mum with a pic of liccle bean!

    Keep u posted!

    I've had brown and red bleeding - brown at 7/8 weeks and dark red last night. Both scans showed haematomas (small collections of blood). The one from 7/8 weeks has been reabsorbed and I have to sit out the next 2 weeks till my next scan and see what the other 2 are doing. Brown mucus suggests a small amount of old blood. Monday is a long time to wait for peace of mind - I called my local maternity unit and got a scan set up today - that way is likely to be quicker than via your GP, unless your GP specifically went through the early pregnancy unit, but you might be lucky and get a slot if you phone up anyway. :hug:
