Brown spotting & positive EPT result

My wife believed to have an early period (25 days normally 28)and just got a positive EPT result. Her period consisted of 3 days of red discharge followed by 2 days of brown spotting, 3 days of nothing then we had intercourse and the brown spotting started up again. It's been 42 days since her last 'regular' period. She just had a convincing positive EPT result and we're going in tomorrow morning for a pregnancy test.
.... any insight weould be greatly appreciated as to whether this is for 'real' or a possibility of a miscarraige.

Thanks !

Only your doc can say for sure.
has she had any cramps if so were they really bad?
I hear that happens alot with a miscarriage.
with my first PG i had no bleeding.
with my last one I had alot some was bright red to alot of brown. At the time I didnt know I was PG but it all turned out fine.

Re: Brown spotting & positive EPT result

A very good friend of mine had a regular period for 4 months and her baby is fine. E.P.T. is 99% accurate.
I wish you and your wife the best of luck. Please let us know what the Dr. says
My prayers are with you both.

' Doctor confirmed this morning that my wife is pregnant. Hallelujah!!! Thanks again for your replies!!! Her beta levels were over 5000 and progesterone @ 14.1 ... seems to be ok.
