    Well I've been spotting (dark brown) on and off for the past three weeks. I went to the docs after three days or so and said it was nothing to worry about but obviously I can't help it...everyone worries when the paper isn't clear!

    I was on holiday last week in Spain (which was lovely!) or I'd have probably have gone back last week as it's on and off, no pain and only when I wipe, not on my pants. So I am going to make and appointment today as I am still really unsettled about it and want further reassurance that it IS nothing to worry about.

    I know everything is probably fine but why do we torture ourselves with every little thing?? It's driving me mad and I can't settle!!

    when I went to doc wig spotting she booked me in straight away for scan as soon as I hit 6 weeks. that was 2 weeks ago and pall be on way to scan soon. tell your doc that you're worried and ask if he'll get you am early scan just to check its ok or failing that go to a+e and pay that you spotting and pregnan. they'd do the same there. good luck with it x

    I'm at the docs now waiting- if I don't get some sort of answer I am happy with I will head for a and e this afternoon. Is it unreasonable to want reassurance I am ok? Grrrrr!

    Good luck! I am having exactly the same - brown spotting on and off for the past 10 days. No red, no heavy flow (just when I wipe) and no pain. They always say brown is old and nothing to worry about but I can understand why you worry as I am the same.

    Fx and please let me know how you get on!

    Im exactly the same, started yesterday when i wiped and has been getting heavier. Never anything in my pants just when i wipe and its really dark brown and gooey!!

    I got it again this morning, its never red and never any pain but its worrying. Everybody has told me its old blood because its brown, and i havent had a period since March so im hoping its just a clearout!!

    I have MW today so hopefully that will put my mind at rest x

    Well...don't know how to feel about this...

    Scanned at 6 weeks, not 8 as I thought. The nurse said it could either be that I have implanted later than I thought, which is likely apparently, or that the baby has stopped growing at 6 weeks. I have to go back in 2 weeks to scan again to see if it has grown. She said the first option is probably the most likely but can't really tell me any more than that, as it is old blood and not fresh.

    I can't believe I have to be in limbo over this for 2 weeks or wait for the worst to happen. I feel so sick!

    did you see a heartbeat or anything as that is usually encouraging? im thinking positive thoughts for you hun - ive seen lots of stories like this where the baby is just developing a little slower and then catches up at the next scan. maybe you did ovualate or implant a little later than you thought or are you very sure of your dates? thinking of you x

    I'm not exact on my dates as we were trying but not seriously, just waiting to see what happened...so it is possible that my dates are out and she also said that implantation time may have varied.

    She did tell me to be positive as the blood was old and there has been no pain. She also said it could be more implantation bleeding around 6 weeks which can happen.

    Ah well I guess I'll just wait and see.
    Thanks for your help you guys xx

    Well I've just done a test and it is still positive and I still have had no other blood apart from brown spotting still. Will try to stay positive but feel like I'm in limbo!
