Brown tinted discharge in very early pregnany

Hi All

I posted earlier this week that I had got my first BFP after 8 months of trying. We were so excited and then yesterday morning I went to the toilet to find a small amount of brown tinted discharge on the toilet paper when I wiped. I went back to the toilet over and over and found nothing, not even in my panties. I went to the doctor last night and she said for me to just take it very easy, have no sex and go back in a week. I have a very dull ache in my lower back and slight twinges in my belly but no cramping. I've had the brown tinted discharge again this morning but only a little bit.

Has anyone else had this so early in their pregnancy and being okay? I am only 4 weeks. Thanks x

This would

congratulations on your pregnancy
probably you heard this before but everybody said that if its brown its old blood, so you shouldn't be very worry about it, but I think its good idea as your doctor sugested to take it easy until you have your next appointment. I suppose the reason your doctor is not asking you to go now its because he won't be able to see anything yet , its to early. At 5 weeks he should be able to see at least the sac. The best of luck gemma. Looking forward to hear your good news

A lot of women have slight spotting in the beginning of pregnancy. Brown blood is old blood which is a good sign that it is not bright red. Do as your doctor recommended, but remember, even at 5 weeks it may still be too early to see much. Most of the time a heartbeat cannot be seen until 6-8 weeks. Good luck to you and keep us posted on what happens next week.
