SCARED! 6wk5dys lite brown blood, little cramps, anyone else?

I have been trying to get pregnant for over 3 years. HAPPY news on the 13t! The stick has 2 lines!

TThis is the 6 pregnancy for me. I've lost 3 and have two wonderful boys, 9 and 6. They are  so  excited...  Maybe as much as I am.

Last night I woke up to lots of brown blood. It's lightened up now. I don't know if it's just spotting or what. Every once in a while I cramp.

When do I go to the ER?  My first OB appointment is on Wednesday (3 days from now).

Any suggestions? Anything positive? Anyone been through the same thing and delivered a healthy baby??

You can always go to the er anytime. Reassurance would be better than having to wait till wed cause I know when your in that situation it can seem like forever. Some bleeding is normal though but doesn't hurt to get checked

Well, to my understanding brown blood usually isn't a concern since it usually is old blood making it's way out. Pink or red blood would more likely be a concern. However, since you have been prone to miscarriage I would check with your Dr.

Yea if you are spotting brown blood and mildly cramping...you are most likely experiencing the end of implantation phase. I had dark brown spotting in my panties for a couple of days after I found out I was pregnant. If you are very very concerned I would go to the ER. If you can wait until Wednesday then do so. I would only go in if I had heavy bright red bleeding and severe cramping.

I'm very prone to miscarriages as well this is my 5th pregnancy and i have two kids so two healthy pregnancies and two miscarriages :( with my first pregnancy i was about 13th weeks along when i started bleeding dark brown blood and quite a bit of it too when i went into the er they told me that the dark brown blood is old blood and they took my blood to check my hcg levels and sent me home saying everything looked good and to see my dr within a few days so two days later i went in to see her and they couldn't find a heartbeat :( I'm soooooo not saying that's what's going on with you so please don't worry too much cuz that can worsen things my point is that the dark brown blood is just old blood and with you being so early it could very well be the implantation bleeding she was talking about above ^ i really hope everything goes good for you and just to be sure i would definitely go into the er

I had the same thing happen with this pregnancy. I had a m/c right before this. I put myself on bedrest and lots of fluids and it helped. Freaked out every step of the way even through second trimester. Finally ok now with things in my 3rd. I'm 28 weeks.My cramping never went away. Turns out I have a fibroid that isn't helping things.  Go to the er when you need reassurance. Be prepared that theywill be prepping you for a m/c no matter what because thats what they normally see. Keeping you in my prayers.

This is my 8th pregnancy, I have a 7 yr old, a 2 yr old, and I am 36 weeks with my third. I have had 5 miscarriages. I have experienced the spotting with all 8 pregnancies!! For your peace of mind I would go in!!
