Hi im 6 weeks pregnant and yesturday i started spotting like a brown discharge and i have a dull abdominal ache, its not very painful but its worrying the doctor didnt say much really. I have already had one miscarrage (miscarriage) and im hoping im not haveing another. has anyone else had or experienced this??
I experienced this at 5 weeks...shortly after I got my BFP. Not to scare you but the dull ache turned into cramps and back ache. Shortly after I got red blood and had a miscarriage. Keep your eye out....some aches and discharge are normal. Brown blood means old blood and that's ok. If it turns red then I would seek medical attention. I'm hoping your little bean is sticking good and that everything's ok!!
I had that when i was six weeks preg with my first, doc sent me for a scan and they couldn't see anything wrong so told me to have my 12 week scan. Then i had more about 17 weeks so another scan and they said I could have a low lying placenta so would need to go back for another scan at 35weeks. Everything turned out fine and I ended up having my healthy baby girl nine days after my due date. Try not to worry, keep an eye on it and if you are really worried ask the doc to book you an early scan.
best of luckxx
