    Default Freaking out.

    So we sadly had a MC a few months ago, I'm 6wks today and when I wipe there's a tiny bit of brown blood I'm out of town visiting friends and I don't know what to do.. It's not like my last MC I had red spotting and cramps. There is no red blood this time and no cramps? Any advice please..

    No advice just positive vibes. I think it's a good sign that it's brown not red. Maybe get a checkup at a hospital of it gets worse xx

    Hi Miss Sparkles, hugs. I had a little bit of brown spotting at 6w3d which freaked me out. Although it was intermittent, it lasted for 3 days. It was after a busy Saturday of housework and grocery shopping and I had no cramping. I emailed my ob, who said it should be fine but to ease my mind, it may pay to bring my 7w scan forward and do it early. So I went in for a scan at 6w6d and saw that little heart beating away. I was so relieved I cried my eyes out. I am now 9w3d and have not spotted since. Do you have an ob that you can call or email? I can recommend going in for an early scan, if just for the relief of seeing that healthy little bub. Until then rest up and curl into bed with a magazine or a good book. Ever

    My first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. 7 weeks into my second pregnancy I had a bleed, it's absolutely freaked me out. Turns out it was a polyp that caused the bleed. I now have a beautiful DS. Not every bleed means miscarriage.

    I hope it all turns out ok. I absolutely understand how worried you must be right now.

    Good luck!

    I've had brown/red spotting with my last 3 pregnancies. This current pregnancy was the worst, 10 days straight of heavy brown spotting/bleeding with day of red/pink bleed. Currently 22 weeks pregnant with healthy bub on board

    They are all boys too, never got it with my only girl

    Sending hugs Miss Sparkles and some empathy. I'm 6 weeks tomorrow and have had some brown spotting the last few mornings.
    Fingers crossed for sticky bubbas.

    I had bleeding in weeks 10 and 11 for 5 days of each week. I'm currently bf'ing that baby.
    I know it's hard not to stress but it's better for you and bubs if you try not to.
    Check in with your obs or middie when you get home if you are still concerned but lots of people bleed a bit in the first trimester.

    Sorry to hear about your previous MC. I had bleeding at 9w and I'm currently now 31 weeks with a very healthy baby. Hope it turns out the same for you!
