6 1/2 weeks pregnant- what are these symptoms?!

I took a HPT about 5 days ago, and it was positive. Actually I took 4, all positive. The next day I noticed almost like some brownish blood discharge. It was very very light, only enough to be there when I wipe and barely spot a pantyliner. No cramping or anything with it. 2 days later, i noticed what looked like brown skin type tissue in the toilet after urinating. Still no cramping, and the very very light brown spotting continued until yesterday, and seems to have stopped. I never had any cramping or heavy bleeding. My first doc appt is Dec. 5.

Should I be concerned about this and call my doctor? Was it a miscarriage, or just old stuff being dispelled? I'm a little concerned but am hesitant to call the doctor over it, since I never had any heavy bleeding or pain. Any advice/help would be appreciated!

  • Call your doctor's office and give them the timeline of events. They may want to see you, run some tests, or at the very least they can tell you what you should watch for before calling again. Good luck!

  • It's seriously probably nothing but knowing me I know I'd be concerned. Just let your OB know. I had the same thing with both my pregnancies.(I freaked out both times) It's just old blood. But how you must be feeling. I wiped myself raw going to the bathroom every 10 seconds to make sure it wasn't turning into bright red blood and then it just stopped. I'm sure you have nothing to worry about. Congrats!
