Re: URGENT...brown discharge 30 weeks

Could it be blood mixed with discharge. Possibly old blood from sex or an internal exam? I really don't know. I'm sorry you aren't getting any answers. I know you must be scared.

Re: URGENT...brown discharge 30 weeks

Hi, I have a 4-month-old dd, and just wanted to tell you not to get too alarmed. I had the same thing happen when I was further along in my pregnancy with dd. I went in to get checked out as well, and my doctor told me that there are alot of blood vessels in that area, and it is possible to have one rupture especially during sex. I was told it wasn't anything to worry about, it sounds like old blood. Your doctor may tell you to refrain from sex. That's what mine said. I was scared as well, but the fact that it's not fresh blood is a good sign.

Re: URGENT...brown discharge 30 weeks

thanks....that is a relief to here. i haven't had sex so this came out of the blue. it just happened today and do have an appt on friday am but want him to see me sooner. it's not coming out each time i go to the bathroom so i guess that's good and it was very light brown.

Re: URGENT...brown discharge 30 weeks

My wife is 20 weeks and has been brown spotting off and on for about the last 8 weeks. The diagnosis was a "low lying placenta" NOT placenta previa which would require bed rest. Brown discharge is old blood and I woudn't be too worried. Calling your doctor is the right move and they will probably do an internal sonogram to check you out. Keep us posted.

Re: URGENT...brown discharge 30 weeks

well, i had to call the dr back for the third time around 4pm. they passed me right thru since he was back from the delivery. told him what was going on abd told me to head to the hospital! got up and left work crying scared to death! wondering what was wrong with me or the baby. got checked into the labor ward (first time i was ever there..at least i know where it is now). hooked me up to a fetal heart rate monitor and contraction monitor. believe it or not i was actually having contractions...only had two but didn't feel them and they said it was normal and good i wasn't feeling them. heart was good even though the monitor would show from time to time a drop from 150's to 120 -said that the cord could have been sat on or something.....hoping it's not wrapped around her neck...they insisted all looked good)

did a painful internal exam and saw that my placenta was very ripe-normal at this stage and i was experiencing some brown discharge caused by popped blood vessels on the placenta. let me go after all was checked out and saw that my cervix was still completely closed and i wasn't dilated and placenta was still in tact.

worse part was i did this on my own.....george was at work and only one there and couldn't leave...he felt horrible and i was ******....even though i knew he couldn't do anything about it.....my boss wanted to drive me to the hospital but told him i should be fine (felt uncomfortable having him go to the L&D with me!)

so, no bedrest and all seems fine. i'm glad i have my reg OB appt on friday am to reassure myself. i wish they did an ultrasound when i was at teh hospital but they didn't...guess no need. but will have one scheduled when i'm in there on friday since he mentioned that last time...he does another ultrasoud at 32 weeks.

That sounds about what my doc said to me when I had the same experience. I'm glad to hear it's not serious. Take care of yourself.
