  • Have you two had this before? I have been reading about women who have this light brown spotting on and off through their first trimester, I was just starting to feel better and then I come here to see these responses! Yikes. It was just a little brownish discharge...this is so abnormal?

  • I had that and the outcome was not good. But everyone is different. Just could be something left over from implantation.

  • Tell ob about it. Some people get subchorionic hemtomas and they can bleed a little for the whole pregnancy. It's caused by the implantation and usually aren't a big deal. I had a small one and it went away on it's own.
