I’m 4 weeks pregnant, for the first time ever! Please bear with me … This morning when I went to the bathroom, there was a tiny bit of very light brown spotting/discharge on my pantyliner. There was also a bit when I wiped. I wiped twice to make sure it was all off. I don’t have any cramping (aside from what I already had, which has been really minimal) or anything. This is ok, right? I read a few sites that said it could be implantation, but I’m pretty sure I had implantation about 2 weeks ago, after I ovluated….I wasn’t charting so I don’t know exactly when I ovulated. What I do know is my LMP was Dec 20, and I got my BFP on Jan 19.
Does this sound normal, or does it sound like a mc?

Congrats on your BFP! 🙂 It sounds like it’s probably normal. I had something similar at about 5 weeks, and it lasted 3-4 days (on and off). Cramping is normal, everything is stretching and changing already. My midwife said there’s so many hormonal changes happening so suddenly that spotting like this often happens. She was right for me..currently 38 weeks! I did go for an early scan however, because like you I was worried. If it gets heavier or turns bright red, then you need to give your doctor a ring. But pale pink/dark brown spotting is normal in lots of women.

I think it is probably normal. I had that for a few days at nine weeks. There was even some light red spotting at one point. No cramps. I went to the Dr and all was fine. Brown spotting is pretty common in the first trimester from what I understand. Most Drs say red blood and cramping is when you need to worry. Good luck!

I’m so relieved, thank you! I will be going to see my GP this afternoon for my vitamin shot as usual, and I’ll mention it to her. It seems to have stopped, and my pg symptoms are still really really strong, so I’m hopeful that means everything is ok. Stressing isn’t going to help either, I’m pretty sure lol but WOW that scared me to death this morning. ETA thanks for mentioning cramps are normal too. I’ve been having some – not too bad, just definitely there – but still, it’s good to get some reassurance.
@lilyrose I’m so surprised at how quickly everything is happening. I didn’t expect to “feel pregnant” for a while yet, but here I am: heartburn, nausea, metallic taste, sore boobs, totally exhausted, and it’s not even 5 weeks yet! I had no idea it would be like this!

It can be normal but only time will tell. In my case light brown spotting at 4 weeks was the first sign of a chemical pregnancy. You may want to take multiple pregnancy tests and confirm that the line gets darker every day. Alternatively, have two blood tests done to see your hcg is doubling!

Spotting is totally normal that early in pregnancy. Keep track of it and if it gets worse, talk to a doc. But I think you’re probably fine! Congratulations!

I totally had this last Sunday at 6 weeks 6 days. My dr said the cervix is rather friable and asked if we had sex…yup! I wouldn’t worry about it as long as its not bright red and a small amount.

I had this too – totally normal! Even though you had implantation a few weeks ago, the small amount of blood may just be making its way out. That’s why it’s brown. Brown blood = old blood. Congrats on your pregnancy!

It sounds pretty common. Have you had sex or anything? That can make people spot (but it’s still normal).

You really only need to worry with bright red bleeding that gets heavier and is accompanied by cramping. Congrats and try not to worry!
