Spotting question...

I am 6 weeks pregnant and have had brown spotting for a week now...should I be concerned? I also had brown spotting for 6 days before my period was due.

Brown blood is old blood. Try and rest and drink lots of water, call the dr tomorrow and if you haven't done so yet, set up an appt. They will do your labs for you.

I wouldn't be too worried if it's only brown and you aren't having any significant cramps with it. I spotted from 8dpo to 17dpo. Did you do anything lately that might have pushed some old blood out? I'd call your Dr just to talk and see what they recommend!

Hope all is well, KUP!

I agree with the other mamas, brown is old blood so usually it's ok but I would call your dr just to be safe and get some peace of mind.
