Pregnant after a Loss

Dark yellowish-brown spotting...

TMI alert!

Just went to the bathroom (#2) and when I wiped there was a lot of dark yellowish-brown (sort of mustard-y color) spotting on the TP. 

Sort of like this color...

I've been having some light tan-light brown spotting on and off since last Wednesday, but I've never seen it this color. 

Anyone have this before? 

 

ETA: Color Swatch! haha!

Re: Dark yellowish-brown spotting...

  • I have bright yellow CM because of the bright yellow suppositories. Are you taking progesterone suppositories? That could be affecting the color.

  • I don't know if I would call that spotting... I've had different colored CM come out of me... clear, white, yellowish (and it could probably be called mustardy).

  • If you have an overload on B vitamins they are water soluble and so you pee the extras out....making urine super super yellow/mustard color.  I've had a range of CM lately, most of the time whitish but there has most def. been dark yellow in there too.....doesn't really concern me, but somehow I've entered this zen state of mind and I'm really trying not to over think anything and fall out of it!

    I hope you're right.  Def doesn't look like blood of any kind...it was just weird.  It's not on my panty liner (totes been wearing one since last week so I can really see what's happening)...

  • I'm not sure about that color...but here's hoping it's nothing at all! (and if it is spotting, its def. old/brown blood, maybe diluted with regular cm?)

    I am familiar with the B vitamin/yellow pee thing as I am taking a B complex.  This def wasn't pee though.  Plus, I take the vitamins at night, so the yellow is gone by this time and my pee is clear from drinking so much water.

    Hoping it's nothing to worry about. Sigh.

  • I am in LOVE with the fact you posted a color swatch for us!! Hilarious.

    But for real, I wouldn't worry too much about it if I were you. Just mention it to your OB at the next appt to be sure, but I'm sure it's okay.

  • Maybe from your Prenatal Vitamins?  I have funky colored pee the first couple times I go after I have taken my vitamin...maybe that could be mixing in with your cm??

    Took my vitamins last night at 10pm.  By now I've gone through 64 oz of water, so my pee is crystal clear this afternoon.   Plus, this was def a dark, matte, spotting not the yellow of pee.

    I was hoping tons of people would pile in with "OH yeah, the mustard color cm totally happened to me too!" haha.  Oh well.  Onward and upward.  Just keep breathing.

  •  I have the same issue and I was like what the HELL. Cause I have been pregnant 3 times and this is the only time it has happened. I was googling and some ladies had this problem with their prenatal vitamins. I read my bottle and it does say it may cause changes in poo or pee, but I figure it would do it to my CM too. As long and you have had your pap and are cleared from all infections and its not blood discharge or cramping you should be okay.  I plan to ask my dr anyway but I think its okay.

  • Love the color swatch!  Did it smell?  It can be a sign of infection that needs to be cleared up with antibiotics.  I'd let your dr know, just to be on the safe side.
  • I had the same thing & first my doc said it could be old blood but as it turned out I had a miscarriage Please go get it checked out for sure..
    GiGi.... due in march with my first
  • Ha!  Lol color swatch.  I have had this.  Not a lot at all, just on tp.  I ended up calling, and because I didn't have any other symptoms of infections, they weren't worried.  I've seen one other post about this on first tri, so we aren't alone. 

     I've been experimenting wiht drinking LOTS of water, to see if I'm dehydrated, but then the discharge just becomes lighter yellow mustard. And it is always... thicker? not very wet or creamy.

    Anyway... I've had it for 2 weeks this fri, when i go in for my intake visit.  I plan on asking them again about it... it just doesn't seem normal.....

    Phew!  I'm so happy someone else can relate.  I'm definitely going to ask about it if it happens again before my appointment next Wednesday.  Mine was a lot on the tp just that one time and then nothing for the rest of the day/evening.  Believe me, I'm checking all the time.

  • I had it too! I mentioned it to my doctor at my 12 week appt because I was also freaked out, but she didn't seem concerned because she heard the h/b with the doppler, but she did a culture just to make sure it wasn't an infection (it wasn't). Now it has gone away. I did have a subchorionic hematoma that had healed several weeks before, so maybe it was leftover from that and finally worked its way through the CM? Not sure.
