Re: Brown spotting first trimester

Yes, with all of mine! I actually did miscarry once (blighted ovum), between my second and third, and I had no spotting that time-- go figure.

With this one I had small episodes of brown, pink, and one time even a tiny amount of red spotting occasionally when I wiped from 5-14 weeks. I did notice that it seemed to happen most often after I had a BM. At my 7 week ultrasound, after I had had about 3 spotting episodes, the tech couldn't see any blood behind/around the placenta, so it was probably all coming from my cervix.

Some women just have a friable cervix, so after straining, DTD, exercise, etc. we just spot a little and it has nothing to do with the baby. My spotting with all 4 ended by the second trimester, so hopefully yours does too. Even though I KNEW it was normal for me, I was still a nervous wreck every time I wiped. I hope yours ends soon too.
