Pregnant, spotting red brown blood. Is this normal? What could be cause?

Hi, I am 7 weeks 2 days pregnant and I have been spotting on and off for 2 weeks. This week on Monday I had dark red /brown blood and some red blood spotting and today when I woke up I have it again. Yesterday I hardly had anything at all. On Monday a scan showed a healthy heartbeat and growth and Dr. could not find a cause for bleeding . Is this normal in some women?

Any bleeding in pregnancy apart from the implantation bleed is abnormal and a cause for investigation and proper management. It may be due to a hormonal imbalance as happens many-a-time and is corrected with proper and adequate hormonal supplementation and bed rest. You should take absolute bed rest, avoid intercourse and all stress situations. You should have serial sonograms coupled with serum beta-hCG titres to follow the progress of the pregnancy to allow interference at the earliest indication. Do not worry, with proper monitoring majority of such cases go to full term and deliver healthy babies. Good luck.
