light pink discharge
DivaBij posted:
Hey everyone, I'm 6 weeks pregnant, n today i had some light pink discharge on my panty, is it normal???
Sarah McMoyler, RN responded:
This is one of the baffling and disconcerting moments that accompany early pregnancy- it could be absolutely normal as the embryo embeds into the lining of the uterus, and it could possibly be the early stages of a miscarriage.

If this is going to proceed towards a miscarriage, the bleeding will become bright red and heavy; if this is simply early pregnancy, the pinkish discharge should dissipate.

I suggest staying in touch with your OB/Gyn - for reassurance and guidance.

Wishing you all the best,

Sarah RN
