This is making me nervous...maybe TMI

So I just found out last weekend that I'm pregnant. Not very far along. My first OB appt. is next week. I just went to the bathroom and when I wiped in the front it was brown (not from poop!) What could this be?

  • DON'T WORRY. IT IS OLD BLOOD. AS LONG AS IT'S NOT BRIGHT RED YOU'RE OK.

  • Sounds like old blood. I wouldnt worry about it unless it is BRIGHT RED.

  • It is spotting. Many women spot during pregnancy. As long as you don't start cramping and it doesn't increase or turn bright red, you're fine.

  • I had this with both of my babies. It's probably just old blood. You should mention it to your doc at the appointment, and if it turns red you should call your doc ASAP. Best of luck!

  • It's old blood. I had it with my first pregnancy and this one. I freaked out both times but it's really usually nothing to worry about. I would definetly mention it to your OB though. They might do an early sono just to see the baby.
