Bleeding and 6 weeks pregnant
I'm 6 weeks pregnant I started spotting 2 nights ago. The blood was bright red and it continued the whole night but it was very light flow. In the morning I called my GP and she said I shouldn't worry if I don't have cramps & clots, she thought it was implantation bleeding. Now I have a brownish discharge, the same I used to get on the last day of my periods. Is this brownish discharge still part of the implantation or should I be worried? Or can it be the camambert cheese I ate, I've just found out that it's not advisable to eat it during pregnancy.

This is going on a bit long for an implantation bleed. I would suggest that you see your doctor for a scan to check the fetal wellbeing. The cheese shuld not have anything to do with it.
