Brown/black spotting 4weeks Preg
An_142427 posted:
Hi, this is my first pregnancy so very nervous. 4 weeks today and have had spotting for the last week. Was browner at first, so thought it was AF but then became more black the last few days, never turning into a full flow. So took preg tests and they are positive. It's not constant, not really enough to even soil a liner, mostly when I wipe. Mostly during the day, by afternoon, as if gravity is making it all come out after awhile. I've had luteal phase spotting off and on for the last year. Saw my gYn in Jan to get things checked per going to try conceiving, and hormone levels were normal according to her. From what I'm reading, this could be very normal or impending sign of problems that will lead to miscarriage. It's Sun so can't do anything till tomorrow, and then will need to wiait for appointment. Any advice is appreciated. Thnx

I spotted a tiny tiny bit, so far, with this pregnancy (my 2nd), but with my first I spotted on a regular basis for a while. It was never very much at time, but it was kind of a brown color. But if you are worried, talk to your doctor about it, if you haven't already.
