Spotting While Pregnant

What does it mean if you have dark brown discharge while pregnant?

I have been pregnant 5 times. Each time I spotted (noticed pink, dark red, and/or brown when I would wipe). Only one pregnancy was lost and this was after the bleeding needed a pad. I have heard from so many women that spotting or having pink or brown discharge during the first 10 weeks is normal for them. I am in my fifth pregnancy now (7 weeks) and the same discharge is appearing. Yes, I'm worried but I keep in mind all those other women who continue their pregnancies normally. Bottom line, go to the doctor and check for a viable pregnancy, take it easy and wait for the spotting to subside. Hopefully!
