In the meantime, I would suggest she rest.

Hello, I am 5 weeks pregnant roughly and I have just been to the toilet and noticed brown blood (very light) when I wiped what does this mean I am terrified of losing my baby. Thanks.?

Have no fear: Normal women cannot be "terrified of losing my baby" during early pregnancy. Pregnancies can miscarry (a normal part of life). Miscarriage is how nature stops abnormal pregnancies and prevents babies with mutations from being born. About 15% of pregnancies naturally miscarry, which is about 1 out of 7 pregnancies. If a woman is normal and healthy, then hope for the best, but what will be will be. ...Read more

It can be: Some light bleeding or spotting during the first trimester of pregnancy (up to 14 weeks) can be normal, without any harm to the baby. Intercourse is a common reason for this. Heavy bleeding, bright red bleeding, passage of tissue or clots, pain and cramping should prompt you to be seen. You should probably see your OB soon in order to confirm that this is a normal pregnancy. ...Read more

I'm currently 10.5 weeks pregnant. I've been spotting on and off since 6.5 weeks. It went from brown to now pink. My OB isn't worried but I am.?
