  • Brown spotting doesn't have to be something to worry about while pregnant. I had it quite a few times during my last pregnancy and it freaked me out at first. The doctor reassured me that it's normal, and I eventually just got used to it! However, if it turns into more of a red color and becomes heavier, it could definitely be a sign of miscarriage.

  • I did with both of my pregnancies. I also had slight cramping with it both times, and with this pregnancy (I'm due tomorrow!) I even had a big glob of red blood that passed at one point with cramping. They did an ultrasound to check on baby and everything was fine. If you are having a miscarriage there isn't anything they can do to prevent it, but I chose to get an ultrasound to check on baby anyway because if everything WAS okay I didn't want to be stressing about it or grieving and adding stress to the baby while I wondered.

  • I had implantation bleeding, which is perfectly normal. I thought I was miscarrying, but everything was fine. I'm now 30 weeks tomorrow :)
