Spotting at 9 weeks plus

3 weeks ago, the gyane diagnosed me with a threatened miscarriage and I was given duphaston for 2 weeks consumptions. Cramps and spottings stopped. After about a week i finished taking it, i observed that i began spotting again and mild cramps observed. Went to AnE last night and was given duphaston again. They gyane prescribed me for another 2 weeks. Since today's morning I saw traces of brown blood while urinating. Some brown spotting on my pad. No cramps observed. Doc will review me again in a week's time. Now qn is, with all these spottings, should i be worried? Should I just wait for the next review? Ive read that brown spottings are quite normal. The pic is taken a while ago. This morning the traces of blood was similar i.e. brown but alot more. Like x3. Again, no cramps observed. This is my first pregnancy. Ive read alot saying brown or pink spotting si fine. So long no cramps or red blood observed. Went to KKH last month and they said just observed. Anybody has spotting in late first trimester? How long did u take duphaston? Please share your story. Tia! #advicepls #pregnancy #firstbaby

I had spotting at 12W but didn’t think much of it as there weren’t any cramps or pains. On the next day, I felt on-and-off bearable cramps in the afternoon which eventually disappeared after a while. There wasn’t any blood then. 2 days after, when I wiped after my first morning pee, there was brownish blood; the kind of spotting you have on your last days of menses. Again, no cramps. However, on our supposed detailed scan on 22 Dec, we found out that our baby had stopped growing after 7W and currently has no heartbeat... I found it hard to accept as I had 2 uncomplicated pregnancies for my 2 girls, but it did happen. 💔 Stay strong 💪🏽 As long as your scans show baby’s heartbeat, it should be ok. Take care!

hugs to you 🤍🤍🤍 thank u for sharing your story. i had a scan last sat, doc couldn't hear the heartbeat. i was at 9 weeks. but the fetus was flickering on the scan ( at 6 weeks, a gynae said it was the heartbeat). so they decided to do another scan hoping to hear the heartbeat. im waiting for my next scan.

I have spotting also at 9week plus is also brown colour my gynae say is normal unless have pain or cramps, my gynae give me take duphaston for 3month,at 10week I don't have any spotting now I 14 week still taking duphaston for another 2week

I had brown spotting everyday from week 7-10 and was on duphaston. Gynae didn’t find out what was causing it, but it stopped on its own and everything is fine now. I did go in for weekly scans during spotting for piece of mind though :)

yes under private gynae

I got brown spotting at 20 weeks. Got prescribed duphaston 10 days and also a cervix check and cervix length was done to Check chances of miscarrying. Doc say as long as no fresh red blood or cramps is ok. No such incident again after.

See ur gynae and probably ask if u need a proluton jab or stronger Duphaston dose. (on a side note, i actually puked when i saw ur pic, something which had never happened b4 i was pregnant :x)

Hi, I encountered brown spotting for a good 2.5 months and was prescribed duphaston and utrogestan. Turns out I had an unexplainable blood clot which went away when I hit second trimester :)
