Hi! If you were my patient, I would want you to notify me right away with any red blood. I am not usually concerned about brownish discharge. I DO like to bring my patients in for an ultrasound though if the bleeding becomes reddish. I like to verify that the fetal heart is beating and the due date is correct. Good luck! Dr B
I wouldn't worry to much unless its a heavy flow like a period. Call your ob just to make sure. In your early months its normal to have some spotting especially around your usual cycle time. If you don't have an ob yet you can always go top the er and have an ultrasound done just to ease your mind. I'm at 7weeks 4 days and this my 2nd and I had that same problem with this pregnancy and my 1st. Every things been good with both. Try not to stress to much I hope this helps :)
I went through the same thing at 8 weeks and at 9 wks they did an ultrasound and found that I have complete posterior previa (placenta covering the cervix). I was told to take it easy, no sex and no lifting over 15lbs. I would definitely say you need to see your doctor if you bleed at all and get it checked out. Hope that helps!
