I got a positive pregnancy test 2 days ago. This is my first pregnancy. I had sex with my SO last night so maybe that’s whats causing it. I am due my period today, I have period like cramps and earlier I had 1 small spot of pink/light red blood on toilet paper and I just went again and this time it was brown in color and looked like it was mixed with CM. What is normal? Does this sound like an early MC? So worried right now. 😩

anon9335: Spotting can be very normal at this stage of pregnancy. I had more spotting than that between weeks 4 and 5 and I was a mess. My fertility clinic kept telling me that it could be normal as many people bleed, even throughout their entire pregnancy. I’m only 5.5 weeks now but my spotting has mostly stopped which is a relief. It is really scary but let’s just hope you’re one of those that does bleed but everything is ok xox

It’s quite possibly implantation bleeding.
I’m a bit further along than you and I’ve had severe cramps like period pains for over a week. My mum says she had the same thing with all 3 of her pregnancies and everything was fine; it’s just the body making room for the baby. 🙂

Spotting is pretty common in early pregnancy. Implantation bleeding is not so common, and if you already had a positive pregnancy test, it’s not implantation anyway since it’s already implanted.
I had some spotting early on, my doctor told me brown spotting was good. Bright red spotting was bad. As long as it’s not excessive and it’s not bright red, I wouldn’t worry.
