  • I had two healthy normal pregnancies and had brownish discharge the first couple of months...and also light period cramping from my uterus changing and growing.

    Hope everything is ok for you too ;)

  • Anon: 51 here. I had brown spotting during the first four months of my last (4th) pregnancy. I was figuring it was because we were moving and I was under stress. When I finally was able to find a doctor, I went in. They said, let's do an ultra sound. Then they said that it looks like I have had a miscarraige. Then ordered some more blood work. I had postive Hcg. Positive as in VERY pregnant. They ordered a couple more and a second ultrasound. It showed multiple ball like growths. My HcG level was then through the roof. I had an emergency D and C. I then had to go for blood work every day for three weeks. Then every week for three months. Then every month for two years. It happens. The first sign is brown discharge.
