This is my first time being pregnant and I am 5 weeks and 6 days along. I've been bleeding brown/pink blood for a week and a half, but only notice when I wipe. Last night I was passing a bowl movement and saw bright red blood, 15 minutes later I checked again and the bright red blood turned into brown blood and then it stopped. I checked this morning and there is still brown blood when I wipe only. I get cramps here and there but not that painful where I am screaming and bending over. Ive been speaking with my doctor and she is not giving me a straight answer, my blood work is fine and my hormone levels are going up (had 3 blood tests). Has this happened to anyone? I've been doing my research and some people say its common and others are saying its not. Would appreciate your thoughts!!
Congrats on your pregnancy!!! You really won't know anything until your u/s, but I wanted to let you know I bled red/brown from about week 6 to week 16 of my pregnancy. Pretty much everyday. Drink lots and lots and lots of water to keep your uterus hydrated, and keep your feet up as much as possible
I had bleeding and cramping early on for several weeks while pregnant with my twins but they are perfectly healthy toddlers now. When my bleeding started it was heavy, sudden, and through my clothes. (TMI?) We already knew we were having twins (fertility help so had a u/s at 5 weeks) and thought for sure I had miscarried but all was fine. I also had lighter spotting throughout with my singleton pregnancy and she was as healthy as can be. Doc wasn't concerned since bloodwork was always fine. Easier said than done, but try not to stress yourself, relax when you can and drink lots of water. Congratulations to you!
