  • didn't happen to me personally, but, i've heard of it happening. if your doctor isn't worried, then, i'm sure it's just implantation bleeding and you are fine. i think what's more of a concern is if you were cramping with bright red blood.

  • Brown blood is old blood, and if its not heavy it's usually not a concern.

  • I had it at 5.5 to 6 weeks.

  • It is normal to have some spotting especially brownish in color. If it turnes red I may worry more, but try to take it easy anyway. I wouldnt consider it implantation bleeding though cause the baby should have implanted way before now, it had to implant to be able to produce the hormones that told you that you are pregnant.
