    Default Brown Spotting after BFP, please help!

    Hi everyone, im DPO 11 today and have Bfp yesterday and today, although the line isn't as dark as the her... Yesterday after my Bfp I felt pregnant with lots of normal symptoms.. But today I don't feel like that and have brown spotting... It's so hard to stay positive as I always have brown spotting about 6 days before af... Has anyone got any experience with this.. Please share your thoughts and happy for the blunt truth as would prefer that then getting my hopes up..

    I'm currently 10 weeks today and had 10 days of brown spotting from about 5-6 weeks. Pregnancy is still going good but I did rest up.

    However earlier in the year I was pregnant and mc, I had brown spotting from 4 days before my BFP and over the week it got worse leading to the mc. At that time resting did nothing it just got worse.

    The biggest difference was that I never got any cramps at all this time.

    Good luck

    I had lots of brown spotting with my first pregnancy, it was my first sign and also leaked fluid a lot. This pregnancy no spotting at all.
    I've never had brown spotting before my period though.

    It's definitely a good sign! I think it must be the implantation spotting. Good luck!

    I had bleeding for 5 days in weeks 10 and 11, I had a perfect healthy daughter on Friday from that same pregnancy!
    Bleeding is more common than you think particularly in the first trimester.
    While the bleeding is old (brown) blood or a light flow, try not to worry.

    Brown is meant to be old blood isn't it? So just left over

    At 5 -6 weeks pregnant I had brown spotting for 2 weeks. At one stage it was quite heavy and I went to hospital thinking it was definitely a miscarriage.

    That was 2.5 years ago and I went on to have a healthy BIG baby boy who just spat bannana on my vacuum cleaner lol

    I can't definitely say you are fine but at the time I got a lot of posts from women who had the same thing and were fine. It can just be the left over blood from implanting or it can be a small blood blister popping where the baby implanted (that's what is was for me called a sub chronic haematoma if you want to google it)

    Definitely a good sign it is brown as that is old blood...
