I called today to make my first appointment and told them I've been spotting light brown for over a week now. I assumed at first it was a miscarriage but it never got red or heavy. The nurse got on the phone and told me pregnancy is really HARD (she stressed that word) and with all the changes my body was going through its going to be hard but not to worry first time pregnancy can be scary and we can over worry. I told her this isnt my first pregnancy and I know spotting and cramping is normal as long as its not bright red or flowing with extreme cramps but I've never read that brown discharge for more than a week is normal. She called it implantation bleeding but at 6 weeks I think I'm passed that.

SO I guess this is a half hormone rant half question. Anyone experienced this before?

Anything brown is old. So in theory it could be pooled blood from Implantation. I have a very senaitive cervix and usually have light pink. After DTD or even a TV u/s I spot. With my last pg my uterus grew very quickly and caused major cramping then a few days after the cramping would atop I would have brown spotting.

I have had light pink spotting with my last two baby's and this one all the way till 6.5wks. It CAN be normal. Have they ordered any betas or an u/s? at 6wks you should be able to see something on u/s. Praying for a great update!

Thank you all for the positive encouragement! I thought I read online somewhere that extended brown spotting could be a sign of an eptopic pregnancy and thats was my main reason for asking the nurse.

No Momof6 they didnt order any US or betas. My appointment is around wk 8 so we will just wait and see! Hopefully like you mine will just dry up around 6.5 weeks!

Thanks again mommies!

I've also heard the darker the older...the more reason NOT to worry. Easier said than done, I know. Let us know if it stops!

I hope it stops soon so you can feel more at ease! I had a lot yesterday and I got freaked out, but my doctor assured me multiple times that it's perfectly normal. But it just doesn't seem like it should be normal.

I'm experiencing that now. I had brown spotting last night. Very light like almost could not see it. I called my RE and he also told me implantation and I questioned him on that. He said implantation takes weeks to complete and as long as it's brown and not red and crampy then I'm fine. GL
