So I realised my period was 3 days late this morning, took a test and got a + :D

But about 10 mins ago I notice some spotting. It’s brown which I know is old blood.
I’ve had some mild cramping which I know it normal.

I’m freaking out as I had a mc in early May and it started with brown spotting then major cramps.

So, did anyone have light spotting in early pregnancy? I don’t recall having it with my first (other than implantation spotting).

  • I have heard of this. Any big bleeding possibly check with doctor.

  • With my first, I thought I was pregnant, did a test and yes. A few weeks later, was bleeding and freaked out. I got an emergency scan, but was warned that if I was having a miscarriage, there was literally nothing that could be done.
    I turned out to be ok and so was the baby. But the scan revealed I was further along than we thought and I had actually had a period like bleed before and it happened until I was safely out of the first trimester.

  • yes I did with all three of mine and my doctor told me it can be quite normal

  • I had it with bub number one, which turned to more red blood. I went to emergency but they said everything was fine. I didn’t have it the second pregnancy. Every woman’s pregnancy’s can be different. Congratulations btw! xxx
