I'm sorry if this very TMI but really need some answers, I'm 5w2d and having tan/light brown discharge, it is not much but surely there..not really spotting though! no unusual cramps or any red blood... is this normal?! anybody else is experiencing this?
On a different note and also TMI (now that I have already started), have you been having regular sex already? I'm scared to do so, even DH was like "lets wait till your thursday BW" .. is anyone else scared of having sex early on or is just me who thinks it might cause something?
With DD and DS I had brown spotting. I was always told that if it was brown, its old and it is PROB okay. THAT BEING SAID... I didn't have cramps or anything and my other symptoms stayed the same. Just let the doc know and in any case, if you get worried, just go in! They are used to seeing moms for all sorts of worries! (I went into L&D like 5 times before I actually went into labor.. lol, I am a bit of a hypochondriac though!)
Sex should be totally fine as long as your having a normal, healthy pregnancy. If you are worried, just wait until you see the doc but you should be good.
JaxonJocelyn Gabriel Grayson and due in September!
I had that when I was pregnant with my DS, I had some brown spotting In the beginning and towards the end, the Dr said its old blood maybe coming out after sex. As long its not bright red blood with cramping you should be fine!
I've heard that some spotting is normal, but I can't say from experience. On the sex part though, my SO and I have had sex as we normally would. Everything I've researched says it's fine. I was nervous and all, but seems to be fine. I had some cramping afterwards every time, but no spotting or anything. As everyone else has said, ask your doctor. I know it's hard not to be super nervous.
I had my first appt with the PA on Monday and she assured me that some minor spotting, and cramping was VERY normal.. She said at times it will feel like we are getting our period and race to the bathroom to see that we haven't. I"m 4 weeks and having some dull cramping, and bloating..she also said Sex was fine, but that you might get some spotting after sex.
