I thought I was doing great. No signs of distress this pregnancy, and I'm almost 10 weeks!

Last night - I had this burning sensation - which is typically what happens to me right before my period, or when I start to spot from my period. I didn't think anything of it - and then I got home, ate dinner - went to the washroom, and had a very light bit of brown spotting. I told DH to watch DS, and said I'm going upstairs to lay down. It did stop right after - but this morning there was a tinge more. Again, very light.

I'm at work now, but wwyd? Would you cal the doc - or knowing there is nothing (except a potential utrasound to ease my mind) he can do - would you just monitor it and if it gets worse, call the doc.

I'm had 3 mmcs, latest was discovered at 12 weeks. However, they were all due to my genetic issue, and my embryo was tested prior to transfer (IVF) - so that should be reassuring right? UGH!

I'm so sorry. It's hard not to worry. However they say that brown spotting is completely normal throughout the 1st trimester. My doc told me unless I see any RED not to worry.

So - doc will probably just tell me to wait anyway right? I shouldn't even bother calling?

I know brown is old blood - but my question then is - I had an ultrasound a week ago and everything was fine - to bleeding.. where in the world would old blood come from?

I just went to the washroom, and nothing. I have the feeling I will be living in there today!

I'm sorry I know how scary it is.

Do yourself a favor, and call your doctor. Just put in a call to them and explain whats going on- they will tell you what to watch for and what you need to do should it get worse.


In a nutshell- unless it is red & you are cramping bad it is probably perfectly normal. But sometimes I think it feels better hearing that from your own doctor. For me anyways it did.


I think you are ok because you said it was light, brownish and no cramping. Take a few deep breaths, relax, and put a call into your doc if it will make you feel more at ease.


Hugs !

ETA: Have you DTD lately or any exercise? Sometimes that can lead to some spotting/old blood.

I haven't DTD in months (sadly) - no "excercise" so to speak - however I entertained on Easter and was on my feet alot more than I normally am.

That could easily be it........anything out of the norm for you- overdoing it- even though it may not seem like much......could cause it.

I'm at the doctor right now waiting for ultrasound - I started bleeding last night and my doctor wanted to see me right away this morning. Seems like every doctor is different. My bleeding however is bright red, I've had spotting earlier on and they've had me come in as well then just to put my mind at ease. Good luck, totally know how stressful this can be - I'm with you!

I do not think it is something to worry about, but you should still call your doctor if it will help you put your mind at ease.

You did the right thing by calling. Baby is probably fine but you need peace of mind! Hope everything is ok.

(((Hugs))) thinking of you and praying for good news!

I've been spotting brown the last couple weeks, but I have a sch and was told to expect some spotting.


My OB checked on it yesterday and said it's very small and low down so it won't cause any issues...baby looked great .


Stalking for an update!

Thanks everyone for your support. Doc called back - she's the newbie in the practice - and you could everything was "scripted" lol - I told her it was light spotting, and she asked when it started, and I told her last night. She said brown spotting is pretty typical in the first trimester, and if it continues or gets worse they will bring me in for an ultrasound later this week. Could be extra movement, a BM, or sex that could have done it.

So - I'll pin it on the extra activity during Easter and hope it stops soon. Its on and off right now. I had a BM a little bit ago, and more came out - which was kind of expected.

Its a wait and see for now. Not sure if I feel better - because really, I knew all this, and I really didn't expect her to rush me in for an ultrasound for brown spotting...

oh well, time will tell. Thanks again!

It could still be a sch that you're bleeding out. They don't always tell you about those with your ultrasounds. Glad its just brown! Take it easy!

If it will lower your anxiety to have an ultrasound, then I would get an ultrasound. But if you can (calmly) wait a few days and see if it stops then try that. Your peace of mind is important too.

My anxiety heightens so much right before an ultrasound, that its actually better for me not to get one unless its needed. I'm just going to calmly wait until the spotting stops - because it will, and everything will be fine.... seriously, there is nothing genetically wrong with this baby - no reason to suspect anything!

Hi Ladies - i worked from home yesterday - and my connection is crappy so it takes years to get on this website!

Spotting never got worse, and it seems to have stopped. I hate that I still have this feeling of doom over me - and even if I saw the HB right now - I would still worry like this. I've just been taking it easy - and resting as much as possible.

Thanks for the support!
