1 Bump

Cause for alarm or normal? adult content

I'm 22 weeks pregnant with my second child and today I'm noticing light pink/brown discharge every once in a while. It's not a ton but it's enough that it caught me off guard. With my first pregnancy I had spotting and brown discharge for the first few weeks but that stopped and never happened again after 8 weeks or so. Is the spotting normal this far along or should I give my doctor a call? I'm not cramping and baby is moving a ton so I'm guessing it's fine.

  • I wouldn't be wasting my time asking, get your butt to the ER or urgent care

  • Its always good to call cuz it could be something just starting mildly and get worse however I also know from previous expience that had a tendancy to happen anytime I had a pelvic exam or intercourse. Usually it would just be small amounts but dr said some spotting is normal with all the pressure in ur pelvis and if u had any sort of anything like intercourse going on that caan trigger it but always call to be safe :-)
