Brown discharge, mucus-like. Pregnant. Should I be concerned about miscarriage?

Hi I just recently found out I was pregnant about 7-9 weeks I have no money no insurance and no car and nobody will answer my questions. I lifted my 44lb daughter last night and right after went to bathroom when I wiped there was a mucous like brown/reddish discharge then maybe 2 drips of blood . This morning it is only a small amount of brown discharge when I wipe. Should I be concerned of a miscarriage or could it have been from lifting my daughter?

Hello dear,
I understand your concern.
In my opinion there can be different causes for spotting or bleeding during pregnancy like:-
1)Hormonal insufficiency like progesterone insufficiency,thyroid abnormalities etc.
2)Abnormal pregnancy like miscarriage.
3)Bleeding from cervix .
4)Bleeding due to excess physical strain.

So once there is spotting or brown discharge all the above causes should be ruled out.

I suggest you to consult doctor for physical examination and and necessary investigations.

The investigations like thyroid profile,ultrasound might be needed.

Physical examination helps to rule out any bleeding from cervix.

Nothing to worry.It will subside once the cause is treated.

Avoid physical stress and intercourse.


Take prenatals.

Hope this helps.
Best regards...Dr.Srilatha
