I had spotting before I had my BFP. When I got the positive result I assumed it had been implantation bleeding but apparently that only last a couple of days and mine ended up lasting for about 2 weeks. I didn't have any pain with it but saw my GP and she booked me in for a check up the following week. She did say it could be early signs of miscarriage but it couldn't be stopped if it was. Then said she'd do tests if it was still there next week. It stopped 2 days later!
Then I had some more bleeding at about 11 weeks and had an emergency scan done and baby was still fine. That also lasted for about 2 weeks. They said that it could have been due to my cervix being slightly damaged, probably due to sex. Apparently it's quite sensitive so sex or even having a big poo can lead to bleeding!
Both times the bleeding was light and I didn't have any associated pain.
I'm now 25 weeks pregnant and everything is fine. Have you had some problems?

Hiya. I had brown spotting pretty much every day from week 5 to week 9. It wasn't even enough for a pad but I wore them anyway to keep check on it. In week 9 it turned red and was quite heavy but the heavy flow only lasted a few minutes before subsiding to brown spotting again. I had 2 scans and all was fine - also had another bit of spotting at 11 weeks but it turned out to be nothing as well. I'm now 32 weeks and never got an explanation for it! xxx

Thanks for the replies
I had an early internal scan today and the mw was able to see the sac but it was too early to see a heartbeat, Im only be 6 weeks today but she thinks Im behind a few days on my dates due to later ovulation so could only be 5+3 or 4 or possibly less! So not really overly worried about not seeing the heartbeat yet, Ive another scan in 2 weeks so praying I will see it then. Ive had brown spotting since monday, mostly whenI wipe and some brown discharge on my knickers (twice when I wiped it was a v dull watery red) though it disappears overnight! It can go away for hours at a time and only some v mild cramping in my back which also comes and goes but Ive been quite constipated so could well be comming from that. Roll on 20th March so I can see my bean!!

Colic & reflux! Help!
Hi all! My LO is 3 weeks & 1 day. Around 11 days ago, I recognised signs of colic and my HV confirmed she believed he was suffering with colic too. It always began at 9pm for a few hours. We changed baby bottles and began giving him Infacol. We noticed a slight improvement but he was still screaming! We battled on as Infacol takes a while to work. Sunday evening he began crying at 6pm and it carried on all night and at 10:30am on Monday, I took him to the doctors, still crying and screaming 😭. The minute the doctor called us, he fell asleep. She thinks he also has reflux so gave us infant gaviscon. She recommended us trying Colic cow & gate also. So, we began with Gaviscon and started Colief instead (the dr didn’t rate Infacol).. with the new milk and he slept wonderfully! The bout of colic that evening lasted 20 mins and that was it! Next night (last night), it came back with a vengeance. He’s screamed all night, he’s refused milk, he’s drank the odd 2oz here and there, he’s straining and crying, his legs and arms are wild, he eventually managed a poo which was brown and sticky! 💩 it’s now 10am and he has finally fallen asleep - in my arms. Ive booked him in with a chiropractor as I’ve heard great things and I’m still using colic bottles and Colief.. please can someone offer any advice. I’m at a total loss. I’ve not slept in a fortnight and I really can’t watch him in agony until this stops - in a few months time 😳😩
