Brown discharge, no pains, cramping, backache. Is it common to have brownish discharge during second trimester of pregnancy?

Hello there I m 33 years old and I m 23 weeks pregnant with twins. I spotted some brown discharge this morning and it s been the whole day like that. I have no pains, cramping, backache! I phoned antenatal care this morning but they just asked me to keep an eye on it. My question is is it common to have a brownish discharge during your second trimester? I didn t have it in my first pregnancy! Thanks!

Thanks for posting your query.
Yes should keep watch on black-brown discharge as this may be alarming sign of antepartum hemorrhage.
You should consult with gynecologist and go for ultrasound imaging for better assessment.
You should also go for complete blood count for knowing drop in hemoglobin level.
