This morning at school, i went pee, and when i wiped there was like some brown discharge on the toilet paper. Nothing has come out in my underwear, only on the tissue. Has anyone else experienced this? im really worried!!!!
Yes, and it's totally normal. Of course, call your doc if you're concerned, but spotting throughout pregnancy is extremely common and harmless.
It's the bright red spotting or bleeding that's more of a concern.
quezzo:It isn't normal. I get so irritated when people say this. However, it is common. Those are two different things. When it happened to me I miscarried so everyone's experiences are different. It was brown only when I wiped. If you are concerned go to the doctor. FYI - the doctor will also say it isn't a big deal if it is brown, but in my case it was and it was my body starting to let go.
When I said normal, I meant that it happens to many women. I guess I was using the word "normal" like you're using "common". Normal doesn't necessarily mean "good".
It's normal for inner city youth to drop out of school, but that doesn't mean it's good.
Sorry if I offended you.
This. This. All of this.
I had brown discharge and for me it was the start of a miscarriage. For other ladies on these boards they can have spotting off and on the entire time and be totally fine. That was not the case for me. I'd definitely put a call into your doc.
I had pink and brown spotting all through the first trimester of my first pregnancy and it wasn't a problem for me. But it was very disconcerting.
I've had some spotting in this pregnancy so far too. If you're worried, call your OB or midwife.
Completely normal! I had the same thing last week and freaked out and called my doctor. She called me in for a sonogram but I'm pretty sure it was to keep my own mind at ease. Everything was fine and she said it's normal.
My big sister and a friend of mine actually spotted throughout their entire first trimester.
