I would go to the emergency rm some people do experience spotting in early pregnancy but I would go and get checked out because that sounds like more than spotting.

How bad is your cramping? I experienced the same thing with my MC. I didn’t miscarry naturally, but definitely had some dark brown spotting. As long as it’s not red or pinkish, it’s not necessarily bad. I would wait to hear back from your Dr’s office before doing anything.

Sending good thoughts your way!

@Littlebean912:  

I would honestly go to the ER if I were you. I m/c’ed naturally earlier this month and it started out as barely noticeable brown spotting with no cramping and graduated to bright red bleeding and a complete miscarriage a week later.

Usually brown spotting is normal in early pregnancy, but because you have cramps I’d say it can’t hurt to be extra careful and get checked out. I’ll be thinking of you!

Dark brown spotting and some cramping is pretty normal for early pregnancy. Dark brown means it’s old blood, so that’s something to alleviate your mind.

At times it may have nothing to do with your baby. Sometimes some cysts that are harmless can be found and they might have burst, hence the blood.

Please keep us posted, At 7 wks and 4 days, you should be able to hear a heartbeat and I’m hoping that it will cheer you up!

@Littlebean912: I’m so happy everthing is OK with you!

At this point at 8 weeks and 5 days, the ultrasound means more than the HCG level. The levels plateau at about 5-6 weeks and won’t really indicate much at 8 wks.

At my clinic, about 85% of the calls I get are about spotting during early pregnancy. That’s why I just tried to give you different scenarios as to why you were spotting.
