Hi All,
As some of you know this is my first preg. Tonight I've had some cramping, which I thought was normal. But when I got up to use the bathroom, I noticed a little blood. And when i wiped there was a brownish color discharge. Am I right to be concerned? Or is this also normal?
Thanks for any help

Brown spotting is usually old blood.It is probably from implantation, I had brown spotting at 8 weeks that lasted about 10 days.I am almost 16 weeks now and heard a beautiful heartbeat at 12 weeks. Cramping is also common at this stage.I know it's hard but try to relax.Your Doc may do an ultrasound if you want one to ease your mind,

Good Luck,

TLC

I am 25 weeks and started t

Thank you ladies *hugs*

There has been no more spotting and only light cramping. My experienced moms here tell me it's normal. My appt. is next week so I'll ask about it then too. Thank you Carol, for sharing your experience. If I see anymore spotting I will definitely call my doc and see if they'll see me sooner.
