    Panic! Despite see various posts of people spotting early in pregnancy, I can't help but panic!! I'm around 6 weeks and this morning, I've gone to the loo twice. The first time the teensiest bit of brown on tissue, the 2nd time more (still not a lot) but a little bit more of reddish in one spot. It also smells different (sorry tmi!). I hope everything is alright coz I'm off to London today but its fair to say I'm gonna be stopping off at every toilet possible!

    Also, I'm didn't drink enough yesterday, is it possible that dehydration can cause spotting?

    Hi I've had brown discharge for over a week and went to see the epu who said it was very common I had a scan but it was too early to see a hbeat so to go back a fortnight later for recheck but they said not to worry. I have since red a study which proved that light spotting of less than 3d duration in the first trimester is not related to miscarriage but bleeding more than your normal period is so if its light you will probably be ok. However there are no guaranteed and I sadly had a mmc in march which only ever gave a very light brown discharge. So I'd speak to your midwife/ doctor and try to get some answers or you'll spend your life worrying. Lots of luck xxx

    And just to let you know my doctor said as baby grows that old implantation blood sheds away and comes out or gets absorbed. He said it's pretty normal xx

    Still brown discharge but midwife wasn't concerned - said to go to A&E if it increases, goes red or if I'm in pain. She also left her number xx
