This afternoon I had some brown (no red) discharge, which seems to have stopped now. I called the nurses line and they thought I should go to the ER just in case. I don't have any other symptoms and I really would prefer not to go to the ER tonight. I had light spotting with my first, but it was earlier in the pregnancy and it went away after about 48 hours. I feel uneasy and scared. I always thought brown meant old blood, but at 8 1/2 weeks?
It can be old blood but she is right it is good to get yourself checked out just in case. I would just to be on the safe side. Usually if cramping follows then that is a bad sign but go get checked out.
