6 weeks pregnant, brown spotting... miscarriage? =+Destiny+= 1 child; Texas 5 posts

This afternoon, I wiped and got a smallamount of brown discharge. It wasnt in my underwear, and it stopped almost as soon as it started. There is still a very small amount of blood inside, but its not coming out.
I also have some cramps and a lot of nausia.



I took a pregnancy test and it was still positive and it came out very dark.



Does this sound ok? Or should I worry?

6 weeks.. brown blood sounds okay to me, because it means it's old blood ,probably your implantation spotting (I got it aound 7 weeks, it was brown and red and i soaked a whole pad) everything was fine though,



don't worry you are just fine. The cramping is probably just your uterus stretching, however if it picks up go to the doctor..(same with the bleeding)

If it continues, I'd say you should go to the ER just to be sure that everything is ok

I don't know...it happens to a lot of women and it's nothing. It happened to me and I ended up having a mc. If you see it again call your doctor, they'll check your hcg levels and can do an ultrasound to see if things are ok

If you have bright red blood or have heavy bleeding (more than one pad in an hour) then you need to go to the ER.



Like the other girls said, brown means old blood, that's a good sign. Nausea is too. Morning sickness means your hormone levels are high, which is a very good sign of a sticking baby!



Try not to stress. Good luck!

i had brown blood the other week, and i also has 3 red spots of blood before 12 weeks after sex, i still would go to the doc, i did and she did a swab and checked for infection, best to be safe than sorri!! it could be implantation bleeding though, but give your midwife a call to reassure you xxx

Hi there, they say the brown stuff is okay, its the bright red new blood that is the one to get checked out.



Last year on my first pregnancy, I did get spotting but that then very quickly turned to new blood followed by pain and I had a miscarriage however this year I had the brown spotting again and thought I was having another miscarriage but I wasn't - and this time around my blood spots went on for about a week too. So your spotting being the colour it is sounds normal to me. Best wishes!!
