Brown Discharge
An_248701 posted:
Hello, I'm 5 weeks 1 day pregnant. I've been getting brown discharge, and yesterday it seemed to increase. Last night, it was gone. Then today during our daily walk, it's back. The only time I really get crampy is when I need to use the restroom (I'm lucky enough to not get constipated). Would my walking every day increase this discharge, and should I take it easy for now? I don't recall anything like this when I was pregnant with my son- who just turned 3.

Thank you!
