I am 6 weeks 4 days pregnant, and I started spotting brown blood today. I called my doctor immediately and they got me in for an ultrasound..... They did a vaginal ultrasound, and I was so relieved when I heard my baby's heartbeat for the first time. Smile

The bleeding/spotting has now stopped, but I still don't know what caused it. My doctor said that everything looked good and it was normal is some pregnancies.

However, I do feel reassured.... but I was so scared today.
I never realized being pregnant is so scary.... It's an overwhelming feeling that hit me today like a ton of bricks. It took me 3 years to get pregnant, and I would be devastated if something went wrong.
I pray everything will be o.k for the rest of my pregnancy.


Has anyone had brown spotting for just a few hours and everything still be completely normal?

brown discharge is a sign that it's old blood. that is always a good sign, if your husband and you have been having sex and he bumps your cervix it could cause you to bleed a little. It could have been a little spotting that didnt' come out right away and is older.

I this happened to me too and i went in too. They told me that brown and light pink isn't bad. Bright red spotting is not a bad thing all the time but that is when you need to worry.

i wish you all the best love.
