I think I am about 5 weeks pregnant. I just experienced some slight brown spotting. Is this OK?


Posted by jessjo22

I have not seen my doctor yet, I am just worried of miscarriage.  She wants me to wait and schedule after August 25.  I have also been having diarrhea this morning.  I am just wondering if all of this is normal.  I am guessing I am in my 5th week.

Hi there - brown spotting while worriesome can be nothing more than implantation bleeding.  Brown = old blood.  Red blood = active bleeding.  I'd make sure you are drinking oodles of water - 96 ounces a day.  Rest when you can.  And call your doctor if your bleeding becomes red or if you have pain.
