Spotting

I am now 10 weeks and 3 days this morning when I woke up I went to the restroom and noticed when I whipped there was a light brown spotting on my toilet paper.... I've heard that this is normal but I am worried... I don't have any cramps or anything in that nature... This is my first successful pregnancy I've never even made it passed 6 weeks with my previous 2 losses.... Anyone relate to this ?

No help here, but hugs!! I know I've heard of many women who have experienced this & say it's normal.

The discharge turns brown when it's exposed to air. It's fine. I wouldn't even call it spotting, really. It also could be old blood, but brown is okay. It's when it's red that you should be alerted.

Be happy about being pregnant! Congratulations on making it this far! Happy 30 weeks!

I had some brown discharge for a good week a few weeks ago. It's normal. Maybe call your care provider if you are really worried?

If you do the deed, you might see brown blood.
