Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.

After 8 weeks of pregnancy, this spotting can be due to hormonal imbalance or corpus luteum defect (the corpus luteum secretes the hormones for sustaining pregnancy till 12 weeks after which placenta takes over). In corpus luteum defects, there is increased brownish spotting and if this is the cause then you may need progesterone supplements till 12 weeks of pregnancy. It can also be due to an impending miscarriage if there is an associated abdominal pain or cramps and the spotting turns to frank bleeding.

Diarrhea may occur during early weeks of pregnancy but if it is accompanied by any blood in stools or fever then it needs evaluation. Don't eat solid foods until the diarrhoea has passed, and avoid dairy products, which can worsen diarrhoea (due to a temporary state of lactose intolerance. Drink any fluid (except milk or caffeinated beverages) to replace fluids lost by diarrhoea and vomiting.

I suggest you to consult a gynecologist and get a through physical examination done for the vaginal bleeding.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
