  • Not cramping? I would not worry about it if it was only temporarily and only a little bit and did not involve cramping. It is probably nothing bad. Call the ob to be safe.

  • It could be implantation bleeding. Moving boxes at this stage is not dangerous so don't stress about that. Some like pinkish brown spotting is normal in the early weeks of pregnancy as the fertilized egg implants itself into the uterine lining. It is probably totally normal. If it gets heavier or does not stop after a few days then call the doc. It is nothing to get too stressed about just yet. If you feel a lot of cramping and blood increases then call your doctor.

    Do a Google search of implantation bleeding if you want more reassurance from other sources. Good luck!

  • I had brown/pink discharge at 16 weeks with my first. It ended up being a bladder infection (I had no pain from it). Keep an eye on it, and if it gets worse, go get checked out.

  • This happened to me at about 8 weeks right when I would've had my period. I had no cramps and bright red blood once, everything else was brown. I did spend the weekend in bed with my feet propped up until I could get to the Dr on Monday. They weren't concerned and didn't want me to come in any earlier than my regular appointment.

  • Have you had a vaginal exam or intercourse recently? That can bring this on sometimes.

  • I had that around 15 weeks and i had a yeast infection. No symptoms or anything just when your prego your ph levels are higher and can cause bacteria to go into over drive. I wouldn't be crazy concerned but call your doc on friday.

  • I had that on and off every few days for about a week or so around that time(where you are in your pregnancy. My doctor said that the cervix is very sensitive during pregnancy, so it's probably nothing. Unless you start having red blood and bad cramps you should be fine. And I hope you know you're not suppose to lift heavy things, anything over about 25-30lbs.
