Im currently 12 weeks and Woke up this morning to some brown discharge on my underwear. I am a little concerned as I have never had any kind of spotting in any of my pregnancies before. I havent had any cramping, Although I have had a lot of pain in the last week where my C section scar. Any advice would be helpful.

Brown is good. Old blood not new. 

if it turns Red or dark pink I would get an appointment with your doctor to check things out. 

If the bleeding continues with red blood or gets heavier then I recommend going to the ER. 


If it stays brown but still have problems with the pain in your C section scar I would make a non emergency appointment to discuss where the pain and blood may be coming from or to check over the baby to ease your fears. Gl

Brown is old blood, that's ok. If it turns to pink or red and you start cramping real bad you need to go to the ER or if your doctor's is open
good luck!  I have had 2 miscarriages as well as spotting until 25 wks with my last pregnancy.  It's scary no matter what we color the blood is.
