    Hi ladies,

    I'm 16dpo now, and on 14dpo I took a hpt and got a fairly instant quite dark bfp! Was really happy, then a further 2 dark bfp's yesterday that I took at random times of the day and one was even with the tiniest bit of pee and they both came up instantly and dark!

    This morning though, I took another hpt with fmu and it came up instant and slightly darker than yesterday's but is also accompanied by some beige/very pale brown spotting... Does this mean I'm losing the baby?

    I've had some fairly strong period like cramps on and off since about 12/13dpo, that come once or twice a day for a few seconds. I also had some hot waves across my tummy around 14 and 15dpo, but they weren't painful, just a strange sensation!

    I'm sorry I didn't know where else to post!

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi hun it sounds like you have really good lines on your tests which is great! Plenty of ladies on here have had spotting and bleeding early on with a healthy pregnancy, myself included I had quite a lot of bleeding at 5 weeks pregnant with my son who's now 4. Brown is old blood so that's good, could be from implantation? Xx

    Hi Ams25, thank you for your reassurance! It's a really pale sort of colour so I'm just hoping it doesn't get darker or go red. Is the cramping normal too? Last time I had cramps was for a few seconds last night and had nothing since apart from feeling pretty heavy in my stomach but I assumed that was normal!

    Just a quick update, have seen a doctor and he isn't concerned and says to come back if the pain gets worse or the bleeding is fresh blood. Thank you so much Ams25, I really do appreciate the support and having my mind put at ease!

    Fingers crossed it's just old blood and nothing to worry about

    Good to hear the doctor has put your mind at ease x

    Blood is never what you want to see but often turns out to be nothing serious. I had spotting in all my pregnancies but this one and have had two losses and two full term pregnancies before this. I had period type cramps in the begining of all of my pregnancies. It seems to be a pretty normal symptom of early pregnancy. It is only a worry if it is quite painful or you have propper red bleeding too.
