    Default light bleeding - worried

    I am almost 7 weeks pregnant and last night and this morning have had some very light bleeding. Brown coloured. No cramping. Does this sound concerning? I thought way tgo late for implantation bleeding? Also no morning sickness yet.

    I had bleeding at 5 weeks, 6 and 7, its very common. Spotting is probably nothing to worry about but best to report any fresh bleeding to your doc/nurse etc. I told the nurse about the first few times and they got me in for blood tests to make sure my HCG levels were rising ok. I had heavy bleeding, cramping etc, scared the crap out of me but all was well.

    I had brown bleeding when I was 6 or 7 weeks pregnant. I had an u/s done and had my hcg levels checked over a few days to make sure they were rising. It wasn't anything serious = ) Sometimes women bleed when they're supposed to get their period, even though they're pregnant.

    I had light brownish spotting with DS2, and went to my GP, he said it was likely 'old blood' shedding from my uterus wall, sent me for a early scan, and he was fine...

    I had cramping early on in this pregnancy (bout 7-8 weeks) while I was working one day, went to the emergency with bright red bleeding, and passed two massive blood clots while I was in there (sorry TMI) and they had basically told me I had miscarried, took my hcg levels, and booked me an u/s to check my ovaries and f/tubes etc,
    Went for the u/s and they found a fetus with a positive heart rate, and is due in 4 weeks with #3

    Definitely get yourself checked out, but try not to worry too much, as spotting can be completely normal, and even if you do have heavy bleeding like myself, miracles can happen

    Brown blood is not something you usually have to worry about.

    As long as you don't have cramping you should be okay. But if you are still worried tomorrow it might pay to see your GP and organise a scan, just for your peace of mind.

    Thanks guys,
    I just posted in my due date group.
    This little one did not make it.
    The bleeding increased gradually. The actual process was sad and a bit scary.
    But I'm ok. I have three lovely sons and they keep me more than busy.
    I am blessed. Thanks for your help.
