  • I carried my son full term and i had brown discharge i can't exactly remember what the doctor said it was but he told me it was normal, I even had a little bit of blood come out a time or two of course being my first child i freaked out and went to the hospital with the terror of a miscarriage and that's when i got the explanation of it being normal as long as it's just about one wipe with the toilet paper. I am 6 weeks along in my second pregnancy now and i notice alot of mucus discharge and he said that was normal as well.

  • I had 2 miscarriages and both times my blood was bright red with clots. SorryTMI. I also had severe cramps to the point of being hunched over with my first M/C. WIth my 2nd M/C i only had slight cramping until i started to get huge clots. I think you will be fine. Good luck.

  • Brown discharge is fine as long as it doesn't turn out to be bright red. If you see red call your ob asap!

  • I had a miscarriage at 11 weeks. I started with a brown discharge and everyone told me it was just old blood. Next day I still had brown discharged and I called the dr. They told me to go in and they took my blood. I went in the next day and my levels had dropped. My dr. told me that I would start bleeding any day then. I started to miscarry the next day. Now I've heard a lot of people say that they had brown discharged at the beginning of their pregancy. Just watch yourself closely. Good luck
