Heather....read the emails on brown spotting. I am in my 7th week and I am also experiencing this. I was scared to death until I read "brown spotting". As long as you have brown and not red it seems that this is normal. Something about the embryo implanting.....if you have red or really bad cramping then you need to call a doctor.

That has happened to me sometimes, but I just always a__sumed it was normal during pregnancy. I am not so sure though. I wish i could be of more help. sorry.

Hey Heather---I'm going to answer the #2 part of your question because I notice that MOST of the time when I #2...I wipe and there is red blood, I'm not worried though because I have been a little consitpated. Here goes the gross part...It's not that I cannot go, it's that it's really hard and when it comes out, it's large around...so I guess it's causing the bleeding. Sort of like hemmroids, which I've heard you get when pregnant. I found that taking a natural vegetable laxitative helps a lot (something like Senokot). It makes it softer and easier to do a #2 and no bleeding. This is definitely not coming from the v____al area, so I'm not worried at all. Good luck and try that laxitative or stool softner. (as your doc if you have questions)

Constipation is one of the symptoms of pregnancy. With there, comes a very dryer than usual bowel movement which could also cause some strain and possible tissue tear. Hope this helps.
