Brown spotting could be something like implantation bleeding.  

Brown spotting is not alarming.  

Cramping with brown spotting is not alarming.  

It's alarming if you get red or pink spotting/bleeding, especially if accompanied by cramps.

Congrats on the BFP. Brown spotting is nothing to be concerned about. You were on clomid, right?    My doc is thinking about putting me on it due to long cycles of 36 days.   Can you tell me about it, like when to take it and when you know to BD?
Thanks I appreciate it.

Congrats! Typically, brown spotting isn't anything serious. If it's around the time af would have been due, it could likely be implantation bleeding. Good luck.

Brown spotting is ok, light pink is ok too, but if it turns bright red, go see the doc.  Lots of women have spotting like you describe early on in pregnancy, completely normal!  Try to relax, but if you can't, there's nothing like hearing a doctor say it.  Good luck and congrats!!!!

A little spotting is OK. Like they mentioned above, some women have inplantation bleeding. Persistant bleeding for more than a period of time is not. I started spotting at 5 weeks and continued until 8 weeks before I had an Ectopic pregnany removed. With my second child though, I soptted at 7 weeks and went on to have a normal pregnancy and a healthy baby. If you have severe pains and cramping following the spotting, then be concerned and call your OB. If you don't, then don't be worried.

I had brown discharge and cramps and went to the ER last night. They did an ultrasound. And they found a fetus with no movement and no heartbeat. I had a miscarriage. So I am scheduled for a procedure tomorrow to remove everything and we are so sad and upset,
If you are pregnant and get brown discharge and cramping, GO TO THE ER!!!

I have had brown spotting period for 3 months. Exactly to the date today. It's really light spotting, and sometimes goes away for hours and sometimes I only see it when I wipe after using the restroom.
Yesterday in the shower I noticed a while bunch of little white spots on my nipples, both of them. They remind me of little tiny white head pimples...and when I squeeze or scratch the top of the little bumps, white stuff comes out...
Exactly like a pimple, but  a whole bunch of them? Just on my nipple?(not the areola)
I'm soo confused, I have been having unprotected sex, on a frequent basis..trying to conceive. I was on Depo last shot was January 14th...
Could I be pregnant?
(hpt said negative, 3 weeks ago)

ryt i no this isnt the same thing but i need advice and as ur al pregnant im sure u can help. i tuk test yestrday and the line was very very faint. help me! plz

cassbaha- i would go to the doctor

sammieb- i dont belive in "faint lines" your either pregnant or not . you said you got a faint line. which line was it. a postive pregnancy test has two lines and 1 line means negative so if you only got one line i would say your not pregant.

take another test and get a digital one that will just come up "pregnant" or "not pregnant"

i got 2 lines. the negetive one was dark which showed the test had worked. whereas the positive line was very faint but stil seeable i have rang the doctors and wil be giving them a urine sample however i have read that the doctors tests are not always acurate. if i am pregnant i would onli be about 2 weeks. should i wait a bit longer then take a test as more hgg would be present later on in the pregnancy

theres no such thing as two weeks pregnant. two weeks pregnant = not really pregnant. if your taking into account gestation age your more than likely 4 weeks pg.

ok then it does sound like your pregnant. urine tests arnt as accurate as blood tests. go to the doctors and get a blood test rather than a urine test. a blood test will give you a number rather than a yes or no

ok. thanks you. sorry if i sound like a bit of a idiot just bit scared . never been in this situation b4. but thanks for the help.

Hi I am 36 and 1/2 week pregnant and I have complete placenta previa. My c section is in 10 days. Today I found little bit brown discharge with any pain.. It was little bit I am worried whether is any pre indications of bleeding or something. My OB told me, if its red spotting or bleeding, then I need to go for emergancy. Otherwise I shud be okay. But I did not know what to do for brown dischange since its first time happen during my this pregnancy.. Please advice...thanks
