so worried bleeding!

last week i had a ultrasound that showed the sac,yolk &embryo at 4mm, and told me i was 4weeks pregnant im guessing from the fetel age.. So i guess im 5weeks now, and had intercorse on saturday night and started brown spotting monday evening, im really worried ive rang the early pregnanacy unit &they told me unless its bright red with pain and clotting its normal, wel ive had no serve pain just a few random abdominal lpains now and again but thats itt .. The brown spotting seems to stop and start and seems to be nothing over night, i know this might sound a lil gross but (up there) seems to be constant brown blood, but only a light when wiping &it will drop on my knickers once or twice to, is there anything i should be worryed about, i still have tenter boobs witch feels like their all brused, tired and alot of head akes? Please comment especally if uve had something simplar and had aa success pregnancy!

  • You need to calm down and relax. Brown spotting is nothing. It is 100% normal. Stress is not good for you or the baby. Save your worry for when something that deserves worry comes along.

  • Brown spotting (especially after sex) is totally normal!

  • Brown blood = old blood. Just keep an eye on it and if it gets worse, seek help.

  • If your around 4 weeks, isnt that when implantation bleeding happens? ( <- real question, not sarcastic)
    I would just stop stressing out, and just be excited about your pregnancy!

  • Almost the exact same thing happened to me when I was a bit farther along than you. I was super worried about it, but am now 6 1/2 months pregnant and everything is going great! Be worried, just enough to make sure everything is ok, but don't get to worked up!

  • Stop having sex until you get the ok from your OB. Under the right conditions sex during early pregnancy can cause a miscarriage. It's pretty rare, but not unheard of. Brown blood is old blood. Probably from the cervix. No need to worry. Wait and see what happens on friday. Wear a liner just in case any more old blood comes out.

  • i had the same happen to me... according to my LMP when i had my 1st u/s i should have been 12 weeks but i was only 9.... i had bleeding like that and was told as long as its not more than a tablespoon full and bright red with cramps to not worry about it because it is normal especially after sex... no worries cause now im 19 weeks with a lil girl!
