Discharge During Pregnancy

Is it normal to have a pinkish discharge at 10 weeks' pregnant if the doctor says the baby is fine?

Don't worry unless there is bright red blood. The pinkish version is very common in the first trimester, even cramping. Just in case, though, keep pointing this out to your doctor and don't overexert yourself physically until you have reached the second trimester.

If it is just a pink-tinted discharge, it is most likely not a miscarriage, especially if your doctor says everything is fine. Don't stress over it unless you have a sudden and PAINFUL bout of cramping and/or lower back pain and heavy bright red bleeding. The bleeding may be accompanied by clots, small or larger depending on how far along you are. During pregnancy your cervix and vagina are more engorged and filled with blood. If you recently had sex and then had the pink discharge, this is absolutely normal. Any abrasion to the cervix could cause a pink discharge. Just try to take it easy and monitor your stress level and make sure you take your prenatal vitamins. Keep your doctor posted if there are any changes.

I can only speak from my experience here. At about 3 months pregnant with my first child I found 3 drops of bright red blood on my panties and I left work immediately and went to the emergency room. There was nothing wrong and now my baby is a healthy 9 year old boy. Always take bleeding seriously in pregnancy but if the doctor says your baby is fine then just have hope and faith he is because stress is an awful thing for mommies-to-be to carry around.
