    Has Anyone Had Light Brown Spotting?

    I'm 17w3d and since yesterday I've had light brown spotting off an on. Nothing heavy...only notice when I wipe. I have an appt. with OB tomorrow but I was wondering if anyone else had this that could kinda put my mind at ease. I was trying to research on the net and it was either don't worry too much about it or you're having a miscarriage...not much in between. I figured if my doctor was horribly worried she would have gotten me in today or told me to go to the hospital which seems like overkill. No cramping, temp or anything else like that. Seems like everything I didn't have with my daughter 7 years ago I have this time around...and after a miscarriage last year everything makes you a little more paranoid!

    I had some of that around week 13, mine was only when i wiped too. It was gone by the next day though. My midwife said it was prolly old blood that found its way out. But def keep an eye on it. Good luck at your appt tomorrow

    Baby's hb was good so that was a relief! Cervix is closed and she could see the brown stuff around it. I obviously wasn't imagining it but I was glad she could see it also. Nothing worse than going to the dr. for something and by the time you get there it's stopped or they can't see what you need them to. Said since the hb is good not to worry about it. It's stopped since then so I feel even better about it. No adult extra carricular activities for a few weeks but better safe than sorry!
