    Default Brown spotting every morning

    I woke up Monday (7 weeks) with brown and a little red spotting. Went to my clinic for a scan and saw a healthy babe with a lovely strong hb. No sign of a bleed.

    Spotting dwindled to nothing by the arvo. But yesterday morning and this morning I've woken up with light brown spotting and it's really stressing me out! Yesterday it tapered off quickly to nothing, and today it looks like it's going to do the same.

    What should I do?

    I can either: call the nurses at my clinic and ask their advice; call the early pregnancy assessment clinic at my local hospital and ask their advice or; ignore it as its old blood and Bub was fine 2 days ago.

    I've not had any cramping.

    Default Brown spotting every morning

    If it were me I would probably call, for peace of mind.
    With Ds I had some brown spotting and everything was fine on US, had some more about a week later (that was browny red though) and called my ob who gave me another ultrasound and found a very small tear in my placenta. Ended up being ok though.
    I had a couple of days of very light brown spotting with DD, then nothing else.

    I'd follow it up with the EPU. I'd probably request another scan too.

    I am a worrier by nature and I would have no peace and no sleep until someone had another look and reassured me that all was well.

    EPU won't see me because I had a good scan on Monday, but my GP has referred me for another scan on Friday and is just going to do some bloods today and Friday too.

    So much unnecessary stress and worry. Never had this with my son

    It's probably just 'one of those things' and will turn out to be nothing to worry about Good on your Doctor for playing it safe though.

    I have had all ranges of spotting to heavy bleeding with this pregnancy so completely sympathise with how stressful and awful it is! *hugs*

    I generally find my spotting is worse in the morning because of lying down all night, then it comes out when you stand up. If yours was red and now changed to brown that sounds like old blood that basically needs to come out. Unfortunately, It may just continue happening until all the blood is out.

    I have always been told that brown is not as much of a concern as red. The fact that you have had an ulstrasound with a healthy Bub is a great sign! But don't be afraid to call your clinic or request another scan if you are concerned, that is what they are there for, and there is nothing worse than the worry!

    Good luck with your pregnancy

    Thanks Patience! I hope to be as lucky as you. Hopefully all is (still) well in there.

    @rainbowroad it's very stressful I agree. I had a bleed at 5 wks and spotted for almost 3 weeks following. Bub was fine. I'm going to say you've got a girl on board and hence the stress and worry they put us through already! It wouldn't hurt getting extra scans to be sure though!

    Thanks Rainbow yes all is well with Bub! She just likes to scare the life out of us occasionally for what it's worth, I had a lot of spotting with my DS too I the first Tri, particularly around the 7 week mark. He was always fine too, I was told it was just one of those random things.

    Keeping my fingers crossed that everything settles for you in the next few days.

    That's what my MIL reckons too!

    I'm quite happy with extra scans so long as they don't pose a risk to Bub which I don't think they do.
