I felt something wet drop in my underwear yesterday and thought that it was discharge. I went to check and it was blood. It was probably about the size of a half-dollar. I haven't had any clotting or cramps. I put a pad on and none of it has gotten on it. Its just when I wipe and its been slacking off a lot. Last night it turned to a brownish color and now this morning its just brown and discharge-like. I wasn't doing anything strenuous before it started and I've just been laying down since yesterday morning. My doctor's nurse told me it should be fine unless I'm filling up a pad. This happened at the very beginning of my pregnancy but it wasn't as much. I guess I'm just needing reassurance since this is my first baby and I'm deathly afraid of losing him/her because it took so long to get. Any advice/reassurance is very appreciated! Thanks in advance!
My doctor told me that if I had bleeding along with cramping to go in and get it checked out. However, because of personal experiences, I think you should just get it checked out. I always say to get this or that checked out, but I personally cant rest until I know for sure baby is okay. If you are comfortable enough to take the day and monitor it than do that, otherwise go get it checked out.
It's a good sign if it's slowing, and turning brown. It's usually not anything to worry about unless it's a lot of blood and/or cramping. Never hurts to get things checked out if you're worried. I've noticed doctors have never made me feel bad for coming in due to worry.
Dude I was freaking out this week too - I also had some blood, and then the next day it was brown and tapering off. Also nothing that would have even showed up on a pad, just when I wiped. I hope it's just nothing on your side. I'm trying to calm down and just chalking it up to weird pregnancy things. Hang in there momma.

I'm pretty sure you'll be okay. I agress with everyone else. It is definetly a good sign that it's tappering off and turing brown. (Brown means old blood) Plus that there is no cramping that's good news.
I've been bleeding for about a month now. It started REALLY heavy and even had clots for two days, and ever since then it's been brown and kind of dischargy. I have placenta previa and am on bed rest for it. I check baby's heartbeat every 3 or 4 days and s/he is going strong. It is a really scary thing, but try not to stress over it and get plenty of rest.
