Cramping after positive test? BG Secrets Arizona 4906 posts
2nd Mar '13

I just took a pregnancy test yesterday and it was positive. I have been cramping all day today and have had quite a bit of brown blood. Is this normal in early pregnancy or is this an indication of miscarriage?

Do you know how far along you are? Mild cramping is normal, but cramping coupled with spotting is not. I'm not saying it's a miscarriage, but all of mine started with brown spotting.

It can be either, but the dark blood makes me think normal. I'd still want to get cheecked out though.

I would go get checked. If it is spotting it could be normal. However if it's dark and continues not a good sign.. good luck mama. Go get checked out.

I literally just found out yesterday. I took a test earlier this week and it was negative. I was supposed to start my period, but never did so that's why I took a test yesterday. So...I'm guessing around 4 weeks?

If there's cramping and bleeding (like bright red and clotted) then that would be bad. But it'd be good to get checked to be sure.

Could definately be old period blood then.

Yes, I needed bg secrets for this....certain people have access to my acct that I don't want to know about my pregnancy just yet and I wanted to reach a broader group than my PT.

So....say I do go to the Dr....what would they check? I know that I would be too early to see anything on an ultrasound.
