I am 6 weeks 4 days. I had some spotting at 4 weeks and it cleared up and was nothing. Then today I have had a little brown spotting/discharge through out the day and then just now some light pink. I never spotted with my other two. I am freaking out.
I have spotting every day. I was told by my midwife and OB(that I had to be referred to) that it's due to low progesterone. I just started supplements last week and had an ultrasound today. There is nothing wrong, my body is just being funky. I would call just to be safe. Good luck!

I would call to be safe also, praying for you
I hope you have a good update to share with us, friend. Huge cyber hugs.
Its been a long day, sorry to not update sooner. Sorry this is long......
I didn't have any more spotting last night. Then this morning after dropping DD off at school had some more brown, but this time it was darker. I also felt slightly crampy, especially on one side. I called my Midwife (who I had my first appointment with yesterday) and she told me that it was up to me and that spotting can be nothing or it can be something and that there wasn't really anything that she could do because she is a CPM. We talked about the options, and I decided that I would take to day off work and see what happened. I called my boss (who didn't know I was pregnant) and told her what was going on. A bit after that I got a lot more brown.
I called my family Dr and they said they could see me, but couldn't really do anything there and would probably just send me to the ER. So I finally broke down and called my old Midwife/OBs office. I didn't want to go there because as long as everything goes smoothly I want to deliver at home, I didn't want the confrontation of not going back. They were able to get me in right away for an Ultrasound and blood work.
The ultra sound showed one baby measuring right on track and we could see the flutter of the heart beat. Everything looked like it should. I will get the results of the blood work tomorrow. They are not sure whats causing the spotting, but think it could low progesterone, the early loss of a twin, or the baby just burrowing in deeper and hitting a blood vessel, or the beginnings of a miscarriage. Of course now the spotting has stopped. Its just a wait and see thing right now.
My HB Midwife has been wonderful today. I have talked to her several times and she is just so supportive. She sounded genuinely relieved when I called and told her the results of the ultrasound. It just makes me know that we totally picked the right person for us.
Thank goodness you saw the heart beat and every thing appeared ok. Definitely glad to hear this for you. Thank you for updating us. Big hugs and I hope that this is the last of scares you have!
Welp, I am spotting again this AM heavier than it was but still brown and a tiny bit of pink. I am wondering if its from the ultrasound?
This is so frustrating. Blood work should be back this afternoon. I am going to call right at noon. I never spotted with my older two. I just need to know that baby is OK, or that its over. This on the edge stuff is really emotionally draining.
oh hun, I really feel your pain! I am going through the EXACT same thing. One day there is good news and the next it's iffy. I am on modified bedrest for 3 weeks until I have another U/S and repeat bloodwork. I hope it's something as easy as you needing a progesterone supplement.
