Hey everyone, I am a little over 5 weeks pregnant. Yesterday I noticed I was having brown spotting when I wiped. Over the last 24 hours it has been every time and a lot more when I wipe. It is staying brown with no pain. I have a panty liner on and i have a little bit on it but when I wipe I notice quite a bit. Is this normal.. should I be concerned? I am nervous for a miscarriage I had one almost 2 years ago didnt know I had one went to the doctor because what I thought was issues with my period turned out to be a miscarriage... I am planning on calling my doctor tomorrow. I have my first appointment with a nurse practitioner in 4 days. My mom has me worried to death.. Thanks ladies!

If it's brown blood it's old which would normally be left over from a previous lining etc, so try not to worry too much. Like you say contact docs as they may be able to refer you for a scan. Some people do also bleed around af time and still go on to have healthy pregnancies. I know it's horrible to go through though. I think when you are pregnant cervix changes can cause a little bit of a bleed and with it being brown that's what it could be. Fingers are crossed for you that all is ok. X
