hi ladies I found out I was pregnant last week and I know I should but I've been testing like a mad woman since and I've taken 5 tests and my lines are defiantly getting darker
top left was done Sunday 8th November night, top right was done Monday 9th November morning, bottom left was done Saturday 14th and bottom right was done Sunday 15th
This was done today (16th) so it's definitely getting darker but when I went to the toilet this morning there was a fair bit of brown discharge and im really worried I think I'm about 5weeks1day roughly
any advice would be greatly appreciated xxx

you could speak to your doctor and if they can't help they may give you contact details for midwife. They may be able to offer you an early scan but at 5 weeks it'll prob have to be an transvaginal internal scan and they may not see anything other than the yolk at this gestation so you may have a wait and have to return two weeks later or have bloods. When you say discharge was it just when you wiped or was it down toilet? X

Brown discharge is stale blood. If it's minimal it may just be the remnants of implantation X

It was just when I wiped, I've got an appointment to see my gp at 11, Im just hoping it's just old blood and nothing more serious, I've got a bit of backache but I've had that since I found out I was pregnant

Brown bleeding is very common in early pregnancy so don't worry. It will most likely be implantation bleeding. Brown blood is old blood & I would only raise flags if it was bright red blood and was causing you pain.
The back ache will be due to your growing uterus.
Try not to worry but speak to your GP & I'm sure they'll reassure you.
