Hi!
Yes, brownish spotting is common in early pregnancy. It is also common for some women to bleed (red spots or blood) on and off during the first 3 months. However, any spotting or bleeding in first trimester should never be ignored. It can be due to simple causes such as cervicitis (infection/inflammation of cervix), vaginitis (infection/inflammation of vagina), or it can also be due to a part of uterine lining sloughing or due to threatened abortion. Sometimes it happens without a cause. It can also be due to hormonal imbalance. If your doctor feels it is not serious, then while you wait for a sonogram at six completed weeks, you can get blood HCG levels estimated at 48 hours intervals. If the levels are doubling then chances of pregnancy carrying forward are good. Do discuss this with your doctor. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
