Hello i was wondering the same thing. How did you go at the doctors? was it a misscarry, or was it implantation bleeding? Please reply, i think i am pregnant. Did you get any cramps for a couple of hours when you where bleeding this brown blood?


Hi, i might be 5weeks pregnant though i strongly believe that I'm only 3weeks.. My last period was March 25, 2008 and today is April 28,2008 and I'm having this thick brown spotting, it's mixed up with transparent mucus. Just a little amount of it but after few minutes it became watery and dark red and in greater amount that doesn't appear to be in spot stains anymore.. Anyway, my breasts feel bruised and im having back pains and cramps but the cramps got worse while im bleeding or having the brown spotting.. Is that just a 7 days late period? or it is a clear sign of pregnancy? pls. reply..

Could you have had a miscarriage if your pregnancy symptoms suddenly disappeared at six weeks and you had light brown spotting and light cramping?

I understand that disappearing pregnancy symptoms so early in the game can be daunting. This could be a sign of a miscarriage, yes but see your OB to make sure everything is alright via a ultra sound. Often times in pregnancy brown spotting ( old blood) are accompanied by some light cramping (round ligament pain) as the uterus grows and expands compensating for the growing fetus/embryo. See your OB right away if you are bleeding (red) or concerned. Brown spotting is not miscarriage spotting sweetheart. Miscarriage bleeding is usually very red blood, clot or tissue in the blood and very severe cramping/abdominal pains. Light cramping is most likely not a miscarriage. During early pregnancy a lot of women experience light brown bleeding or spotting or pinkisk or brown blood. This is old blood and is also known as early pregnancy bleeding. Its very normal. But if the blood becomes red or the cramping severe, then its advisable to contact your doctor immediately in the case of a possible miscarriage. See your doctor now for a pregnancy blood test.
