    Brown discharge
    marika2480 posted:
    I am 7 weeks pregnant and started experiencing brown discharge at times when I use the restroom. Is this or can this be normal? I have also been getting slight cramping feeling at times. I did go to my Dr. and was told that the worst could be my body getting ready to miscarry the baby to something as simple as my body just spotting to get rid of what is left of a period. While at the Dr. they did bloodwork to check my levels and to see if the levels are still high enough to validate that I am still pregnant. If the test show that I am still pregnant on Monday I go in that afternoon for an ultrasound. I am hoping and praying for the best and trying to relax and not over thnk things. Has anyone else experienced something like thisand maybe have some advice?
