Welcome to ehealthforum,
Few women can experience decidual bleeding during first trimester of pregnancy which usually occurs during expected time of periods. However if the spotting or bleeding is increasing in intensity and/or if it is associated with increase in abdominal cramps and low back pain, then it could be suggestive of possibility of impending miscarriage/threatened abortion. Do not ignore your symptom if it is getting worse of if it is persistent. Do not delay in visiting your gynecologist/midwife for further evaluation. HCG level test and ultrasound scan done will help to identify the cause for the bleeding (if abnormal). Get started on appropriate measures to prevent miscarriage and stop the bleeding. Go ahead with getting an ultrasound scan (preferably transvaginal ultrasound scan) to look for the fetal pole and heartbeat. You can also consider requesting your gynecologist/obstetrician for getting serial HCG levels tested. Doubling up of the hormone levels in 48-72 hours will show that pregnancy is going on smoothly. If levels are not adequate, and spotting/brown discharge is under control, then external hormonal supplements should be considered to be started to help with preventing miscarriage/threatened abortion. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Avoid any heavy work. Avoid having intercourse during first trimester. Avoid lifting heavy objects and climbing stairs or standing for long periods of time. All the best.
Take care.
