Spotting in early pregnancy is fairly common, and usually as long as it isn't bright red or heavy or associated with a fever or severe cramping you should be okay. That said any bleeding and/or spotting in pregnancy should be reported to your doctor.

Is it normal to have brownish spotting during your 8th week of pregnancy?

All I can tell you is that I am a little over 8 weeks pregnant and have had brown spotting off and on for the past two days. I also had some spotting about a week ago for about 5 days then it stopped. I called the doctor about this twice and she has told me not to be worried as long as I don't have severe cramping and bright red bleeding or pass clots. I am not really sure what to think. I have already had two ultrasounds where the heartbeat was found, and I do understand after the heartbeat is found the rate of continued pregnancy is a little over 83%. I would say to call your doctor if you are concerned.

Backache and stomache cramps light brown spotting when i wipe is it period or pregnancy?

Pregnancy symptoms and PMS symptoms overlap one another so much it's ridiculous. If you are worried that you may be pregnant, you need to take a home pregnancy test. If you have had sex without the use of protection, you could be pregnant. It does not matter what time of the month it is for you. Even if you did use protection, there is still a small chance you could get pregnant. If you are pregnant, the brown spotting is likely implantation bleeding. The stomach cramping due to your uterus preparing, and the backache is probably uterine related also. But, cramping, backaches, and spotting are also PMS symptoms. Take a pregnancy test.

Im 30 weeks pregnant and im spotting should you be worried?

I am also 30 weeks and pregnant and am experiencing the same thing. Two days ago I started spotting and started to worry, so I went to the hospital where they monitered the baby and checked my cervix. Everything checked out great...thank god! The doctor told me that spotting is common this late in pregnancy and to not be alarmed if I see it even more as I get closer to labor/delivery. She also said that pink/brown spotting is really noting to be worried about this late in pregnancy, its the bright red/heavy bledding like your period that you should worry about. But, I would still discuss this with your doctor at your next visit, or call him/her if you are just uneasy....either way your like every woman who is pregnant, you want to deliver a healty baby, and worrying is something that we all go through while pregnant, and I don't blame you. Congrats and good luck!

The brownish spots that you are seeing is your body cleaning out all of the blood that was left inside while you were on your period. Blood drys a very dark brown so when it comes out a few days later that's all that is. So don't be too worried.
