Brown discharge in early pregnancy
I am approximately 6 weeks pregnant and am due to see the gynae in two weeks'  time. I have had a light-brown discharge over the weekend, without any abdominal cramps.
Most of the research I have done has indicated that the brown spotting is harmless and is probably " old blood"  that is being gotten rid of. Should I book an appointment with the doctor to check it out or wait and monitor?
