Hi I'm 28 and 5 weeks pg with my 1st. I've started spotting, it's almost like light brown discharge (sorry tmi). Seeing the doc at 5.30 but freaking out in the meantime.
Anyone else had this? If so did everything turn out ok? x

I had a few wipes of brown discharge last week sorry tmi but when I went for a poo as so constipated I had to push real hard. Is ur period due this week? Brown is old blood so possibly old implantation or Breakthrough bleeding? Have you had sex recently?
thinking of u x

thanks for your reply. Also thanks for your tmi as I was constipated this morning - maybe it's the same thing? Haven't had sex since 1 June because I spotted after that too - wanted to check with the dr before doing it again.
God I hope it's just the constipation thing! I keep thinking bean isn't going to stick x

sorry forgot to say my period was due a week ago (ish) but they became irregular so I'm not really sure x

Hopefully it's just that ur cervix is sensitive and tender at the mo. but brown is deffo better than red and if ur not in any pain then that's a good sign Too. Keep us posted, bleeding is always a worry but lots of women bleed all the way thru x

Well that was a waste of time dr said all we can do is wait. If she arranged a scan it'd be too early to see anything so I have to see what happens over the weekend and go back early next week if the bleeding gets heavier x

Sorry dr couldn't help more,a friend of mine had bad cramps at 5 and a half weeks & was given a scan ,saw h.b and all was fine , and we live in Cornwall !! but it wasn't the weekend , don't know about where you are but everything seems to shut down at the wkn !! . I also had spotting with ds at 7 weeks and all was fine, keeping fingers crossed for you x x

Thanks evemum. The weekend thing's a joke - a few years ago my dad had a heart attack on a Saturday so there weren't any surgeons at our closest hospital....he had to be 'couriered' 30 miles to the heart department at Brighton! Luckily he was ok after his op! x

I had exactly the same at 5 weeks and doc told me the same, I'm now 6 weeks but still worrying like he'll, had blood taken yest but still waiting for results, seeing doc 2mo to see if I can have a scan doc told me last week no, which made me cross its not him that has to worry all the time.
07/06/2013 at 19:44
Sorry to hear that Rachel. Are you still bleeding? Your doc should let you have a scan now you're 6 weeks - my doc said she would have referred me but it would be a waste of time because you can't see anything this early. FX your blood comes back good - please let me know! xx
07/06/2013 at 19:50
Oh Lou! How awful that you have to wait! Are you still getting the discharge?
Just try and take it easy this weekend and take each day as it comes. Everything crossed that the discharge stops and all is fine!!xx
07/06/2013 at 20:01
No just had bleeding for the half day, but I'm convinced something's not right, the doc just thinks I'm over reacting, I'm so emotional at the moment and don't think I could cope with waiting another 6 weeks
07/06/2013 at 20:06
Bless u, thinking of u and fingers crossed xx

Rachel it does sound like you and your bean might be ok! If the bleeding's stopped and you have no cramping it certainly sounds like things are ok for the time being at least! However if you're an emotional wreck (like I was earlier in the dr office!) i'm sure they'll book you in to reassure you. Do let us know how you get on xx
Thanks Katie & LH yes I have everything crossed too! I am still having the brown discharge but I think it's dying down a bit so will see how it goes. Will defo take it easy. Trying to muster up the energy to go get some chocolate to cheer me up! The Husband is working nights so I can't send him! xx
