Please go to the doctor. We are not doctors and can not diagnose you over the internet. I hope everything is ok with your pregnancy but please go to an ob/gyn and not the internet for advise.

I experienced that with my youngest and was relieved when my Drs office informed me that it was just old blood. I would check with your Drs office if your still concerned but I believe it's the same as what I had. Congratulations and I hope this helped ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‰

Go to your Dr. We cannot diagnose you or know what is going on with your body over the internet. It is better to be on the safe side and get your Dr's diagnosis.

Good luck

I'm not sure what your period is like but mine always starts off brownish, then ends by turning brownish too, so I know that's blood. The blood then starts to turn pinkish for a few hours and then I get the full blown heavy bleeding with the strawberry red color. I guess it's different for you, or you would have known what the brownish stuff is. If things have changed for you in terms of pain, duration and even color, you may want to consult with your ob/gyn. I have PCOS and fibromyomas, which cause extensive, heavy bleeding. I have always had heavy periods, but they got worse after having my child. Because of that change, my ob/gyn performed pelvic ultrasounds and other tests and came to those conclusions, so we're aware of these things and monitoring them. If you have something like this, it's worth knowing about so you can also keep an eye should you need to undergo surgery for removal.

ETA: Just read about your positive pregnancy test. If you have blood while being pregnant this is DEFINITELY of concern! If you don't want to lose the baby, I suggest getting this checked out ASAP, NOT when you get time off from work. Go to the urgent care on the weekend or a weekday evening, if missing work is such a concern. You can also go early in the morning and just miss an hour or so of work, so as to not affect your employer so much, but I would not just let this go. Even if it turns out to be nothing major, at least you'll have peace of mind in knowing so. Good luck.
