  • Sounds like old blood, no worries, it's pretty common.

  • I agree with AnasMommy7, its probably old blood. Shouldnt be an issue. If you are really super concerned, call your ob

  • i wouldnt worry yet bc even at 8 weeks old implantation blood can come, BUT it can also sart off brown for a mc im not trying to be awful here just letting you know ive ad four due to a genetic factor, and mc cant be prevented i hated hearing that and i wanted hormones and the works but no matter what once they started its out of your hands. but just call the dr, and relax cramping at 8 weeks is normal too so it might all just be part of a normal pregnancy.

  • Yeah I wouldn't worry either. I had the same thing with my daughter. Brownish is old, so don't stress about it to much. Cramping is also normal early on. Just let your doctor know immediately if you have any bright red blood or bad cramps.

  • My Ob told me that bright red blood was the only blood of concern, but if you're worried/stressed, I would call your OB to give you some relief.
