    Default Brown Spotting - 12w 6d

    Hi There,

    I’m 13 weeks tomorrow.
    Had noticed brown discharge earlier today when I wiped. No cramping as yet. Am away on holidays, should I be concerned?
    Last scan was at 9w 2d & everything looked fine, however my Harmony test at 11w was inconclusive (something about not having enough, I’m assuming she meant fetal DNA) & need to have my blood re-drawn.

    How scary for you! Can you go to an ER for a scan?

    I had spotting at 13 weeks in my first pregnancy which was fine. Is it red or brown and how much? Are you having a scan soon? I thought most people even if they had the harmony test still had a 12 week scan but I’ve never had the harmony done.

    I’d go and get a scan. Was the 9w scam matching well with your original dates?

    It also could just be a raw cervix causing the blood. Nothing to worry about

    I had red/brown spotting at 7 weeks and 12ish weeks, currently 27+3, they checked my cervix at 7 weeks and said it was high and closed but looked a bit irritated, apparently the increased blood flow to the are can cause aggravation. Third pregnancy and had never experienced it before.

    Thank you everyone for taking the time to reply.
    I went to the ER this morning & unfortunately a miscarriage is imminent. Looks like the baby passed at approx 11 weeks. I had a feeling all along something wasn’t quite right & as horrible as it sounds, I am a little relieved as I no longer have the stress or worry something might go wrong.
    Now, to head to another forum to seek advice RE to miscarry naturally or have a D&C.
    Thank you again 🌻

    So sorry to hear. I had a missed mc at 12 weeks. Highly recommend D&C. I also had a D&C for a blighted ovum 18 months ago. It is quick.

    Default Brown Spotting - 12w 6d

    I went natural at 9w with the Hb remaining until 8w but baby was 6w size. It was 2 weeks total of bleeding, 3 days of pouring. I personally would have a d&c if you are that far along
    I kept by sac and buried it, but in your case, they could test it to see what may have caused this. I’m no expert, but after 8w mc aren’t as common , might be worth checking fetus out
