@Purple_Bride:  Spotting or full on bleeding? Spotting is fairly normal. Brown blood means it is old so it is just cleaning up in preparation.

@Purple_Bride:  i havent myself, but ive been on a million baby forums since i got pregnant and bleeding seems surprisingly common in first tri and often doesnt mean anything bad. Loads of things can trigger it – a big bowel movement, sex etc so i wouldnt freak out. its more of a bad sign if accompanied by cramping

it is however one of those symptoms where its always worth calling your doctor/healthcare provider and just asking them what they think

I had brown spotting and a few spots of red when I wiped as well at 6 , 9 and 13 weeks. As long as you are not bright red and filling up a pad , you are fine… but if it eases your mind I would go in to get it checked out… I did 2/3 times that it happened, and both times things were fine.

@Purple_Bride:  When I was just 7 weeks or so one afternoon I had quite a bit of bleeding – enough that I had to change my clothes from the waist down if you get my drift – and everything was absolutely fine! I went to the ER and they had no idea where the blood was from. I’m now 28 weeks and all is well! Bleeding seems to be very common – as long as it’s not excessive and there’s no cramping you’re likely just fine, but I second PP who mentioned that you call your OB/midwife to get their thoughts.

Best wishes!

@Purple_Bride:  I reeeeeally think you have nothing to worry about. All sounds normal to me.

@Purple_Bride:  I personally haven;t bled, but my doctor as well as many, many other websites say that you really only have cause to worry if you are cramping heavily and bleeding red blood. If you had red blood with no cramping and it was only a few drops I wouldn’t worry. many women spot in the 1st and even 2nd trimester and the baby ends up being just fine.

My friend had heavy red bleeding for the first 6 weeks and delivered a healthy little girl in August.

@Purple_Bride:  I had spotting for about two weeks early in the first tri. I’m now almost 24 weeks along with a healthy baby girl. I had no spotting with DS 2 years ago. My sister had no spotting with her son, but spotting with her daughter- same as me! FX for you:)

@Purple_Bride:  any chance you might have torn a little when you had a BM and that’s where the red blood came from?

Congratulations too, fantastic news!

I also had some bleeding for one day around 7-8 weeks. All was well, now 25 weeks and no probs at all 🙂 My midwife said spotting was ok and not to be concerned unless there was cramping also.

My sister bled quite a bit around 6-7 weeks, and all was well with her beautiful baby boy born in August. She was out of town when it happened, and when she called her doctor, her doctor wasn’t even really concerned, and told her to just relax and wait until she got home to come in for a checkup (I’m sure “relaxing” was easier said than done). Chances are you’re fine!

Sounds harmless, try to relax – easier said then done I know!
