  • i had a bit of brown discharge throughout my pregnancy, if your nervous call the dr's office and ask them what you should do...

  • Spotting is fine...as long as no cramping

  • Yep, spotting is fine. If it becomes heavy, bright red, and/or comes with cramping or pain in the center of your abdomen or lower back then that is when you might be concerned. What you're describing is very normal!

  • Brown is old blood. Make sure you mention it to your OB as s/he may want to do an ultrasound to see if anything is going on.

    I had a subchorionic hematoma with my last pregnancy and was told to expect brown spotting as it resolved itself.

    As mentioned...cramping or red spotting..call the doctor.
