I am 7-weeks-pregnant with a lot of brown spotting: Advice?

I’m 7weeks pregnant and having a lot of brown spotting its every time I wipe it’s there and a lot of it with clots. I’ve spoken to my midwife many times about this had an ultrasound and HCG test my HCG has been going hp great and last week it was 34,872. Everything looked great on the ultrasound. But I still can’t stop worrying. I had a miscarriage before this pregnancy. I’ve been super crampy, and this spotting is really stressing me out even though my midwife said it was normal. I didn’t have any of this with my daughter, so it’s all very scary. It will ease my mind if I know someone else went through this someone who had this amount of spotting for over a week and had a healthy pregnancy. Thank you!


Baby girl that is very normal. Just take a deep breath. Your gonna be one amazing mom.

I had the same thing happen with my now 1 year old. I ended up going to the doctor because I got scared. Thankfully everything came out ok. The doctor said it happens sometimes. They couldn’t explain why.

I would go to an actual OB not a midwife at this point in time


It’s hard to say, with there being cramping and clotting, I would go to the doctor at this point to see what is going on. The baby could be okay, but there might be something going on with you. Best to see the doctor and let them check to make sure.


I had this happen with me 2nd child she is goin to be 9 next month

I agree with Tesha DeMuth

Don’t freak out. Brown spotting is okay. Could be many things. If it’s bright red or pink then worry because it’s fresh blood.

It may just implantation bleeding, but better safe than sorry.

i had this happen with my current pregnancy. the whole first trimester i was spotting and cramping. had a miscarriage literally a month before finding out i was pregnant again.
my dr checked everything and couldnt find any possible place where the bleeding could’ve been coming from, but everything else was going perfect. im still high risk, but im 27 weeks now and little man is surprisingly strong

Brown means old so if it’s not red and heavy I wouldn’t worry, spotting is normal and cramping is definitely normal.

I was told as long as there’s no pain with bright red you are ok

Try not to stress so much even though I know its hard because that could put stress on your baby some spotting is completely normal

I had brown at 8 weeks and bright red at 12 weeks. Healthy pregnancy here. Baby is growing and stretching everything out in there, making room for the rest of their stay :sunglasses: try not to stress. Easier said than done, I know.

I had cramping and spotting at the start of every pregnancy. With my first I was nearly 10 weeks before it stopped.

I strongly suggest seeing an obstetrician. Just as precaution. Hopefully alleviate some of the stress you’re feeling. I am not suggesting you leave the midwife, unless you’re uncomfortable with her. Just check in with MD and enjoy your pregnancy. Wishing you a safe and healthy time.

Possibly just old blood I had this at 6 weeks it lasted about 2 weeks off and on now I have a healthy 3 year old


First 3 months it is normal for some to have vaginal bleeding- I knew someone who did. I would just kick your feet up, take it easy so that you don’t stress out too much (easier said then done I know). And just keep checking in with your Midwife just so they can keep tabs <3 Good Luck <3

I did and my boy is now nearly 6 months old xx
