I'm Exactly 4wks & 4days pregnant since I've been 4wks pregnant I've had like a light brown almost like (chocolate milk) spotting, barley fills up my panty liner. The doctor said don't worry until I have pains or its BRIGHT red. Any other mothers had this? Its not implantation bleeding I've done had that idk what this is?
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!
