Cramping with Brown Discharge Before Missed Period?!!

Postby Layla0725 » Thu Nov 03, 2011 4:56 pm

Hi,
I'll be 4 weeks pregnant tomorrow and I'm experiencing cramping with brown discharge. The discharge happens every now and then but it has me worried. I'm due for my period either tomorrow or Saturday. I got 3 positive tests with an FRER test and 1 positive with a dollar store test. I'm worried about a chemical pregnancy since I tested before my missed period.

Are these symptoms normal in a healthy pregnancy??

Any info on your symptoms during your 3rd or 4th week of pregnancy will be greatly appreciated!

This sounds the same as what happened to me, except my BFP came after the spotting at 14 DPO. I had light brown spotting that I thought might turn into my period. I was getting negative pregnancy tests at the same time. The spotting just ended, no period.

So you could still be pregnant unless it becomes real bleeding!

just posted this on another post lol....




congrats hun!!!1

let me tell you my story im sure it will help!

i had terible morning sickness 2 days before af was due, so i tested. and as i tested i wiped brown, but test came out bfp, i continued to wipe brown and with a couple of little clumps for two days, but no need for pad. i was sure i was losing it as i tested everyday, and they got lighter and neg! also lost sxs. but used a diff test on day after af due and got a good strong bfp i went to dr for blood test it was pos. im nearly 6 weeks and still have a good strong bfp! got my drs appointment today woo hoo.

for me it could have been late implant, was told its can be normal to bleed as long as its not as heavy as af. and my tests.. dr said it being so early it could fluctuate a little, could have have an implant surge.

hope this has helped. im sure your fine and no need to worry, as we know you are! i worried terribly too.

fx hun, let us know how you get on at the drs xx

Thanks so much for getting back to me girls. I was worried for a little bit there but the brown discharge stopped as soon as my missed period date passed. I guess it was just implantation or old blood. I'm just really happy it's all gone! My first U/S appointment is on December 5th. Can't wait!! I'm also due in July! :)

Hi ladies.
I'm experiencing almost the same thing. I got BFP 3 days before missed period. Spotted a little brown/pink for two days but had period like cramping for two days and the brown discharge seems to be getting heavier. Tested negative on HPT 3 days after positive. Should I be testing again? Had bloodwork done but won't get results for two more days. After I discharged a larger clump of brown my period like pain went away and back to light pulling pains.. Thoughts?
