Spotting at 7weeks — The Bump
1st Trimester

Spotting at 7weeks

Today I am 7 weeks pregnant.  I went to use the restroom and noticed that I was spotting.  I only noticed it only after I wiped.  Is this normal? Should I be concerned?

  • Call your doctor in the morning... Any pain? Red blood or brown?

  • Nope, not feeling any pain.  It looks more brown than red, very faint.

  • Brown blood is old blood, red blood is new blood. If its brown with no pain you should be ok. I would call your OB for peace of mind though.

  • It's not out of the ordinary to spot in the 1st tri. I spotted from 6w-10w, pretty much everyday, with my daughter. Sometimes red, others brown. I also cramped the whole time, too. Call your OB for your peace of mind, though. GL!

  • I just got off the phone with a nurse at my OB's office for the same thing. She assured me that since it's brown, it's old blood.  The cervix becomes more vascular when you're pregnant, and any activity during which you bear down (mine was shoveling the driveway - you can bet that won't happen again!) can cause a blood vessel to burst.

    Best case scenario, maybe this will get me the early ultrasound I wouldn't have otherwise.  Worst case scenario... well, there's nothing I can do anyway so I'm going to try not to be paranoid.

    I had brown spotting around 7 weeks and my doc did her best to calm me down (I freaked out) but ordered an ultrasound to be safe. Our little bean was just fine and she attributed it to cervix sensitivity/a little bleeding that doesn't affect the pregnancy. GL!
