Hi girls, well.. I'm 6w 3d preggo and this is my first pregnancy. I was just in the washroom and had brown discharge on the tp when I wiped (tmi sorry) i'm having a little bit of cramping but it's not painful at all. I've had cramping on and off since 5dpo. Should I be worried? Help!

If its brown, its likley to be old blood, probally a little left over from your last period.

I had this same thing happen to me around 6 weeks.....I had really bad cramps off and on and one time when I went to the bathroon, there was a litle bit of brownish blood when I wiped......It never happended again after that, so I really didn't worry....I think it's normal!!

It can be normal as long as it isnt bright red color you are okay. Brown blood is called old blood atleast that is what my doc. Told me. If you have real bad cramps that you can not tolerate them call you doc. Or go get checked out just to be safe than sorry...

Brown discharge is normal as long as its not continuing with bad cramping on one side or both sides of your stomache.. I had that same thing at around 6 weeks... Now im 5 months.. Just relax. If you still worried call ur doctor... Good luck
