Is this normal, this is my 2nd pregnancy after 2+ years of trying. I'm very excited but the brown dried up blood I'm assuming it is worries me abit, i don't remember this in my first pregnancy. Any one else experiencing this? I'd love some reassurance thanks :)

I noticed at the beginning of this preg (preg#2), I experienced light/annoying cramps for the first 12 weeks on and off which I didn't remember at all with my first preg. my doc said that it was the uterus expanding faster than the first time. haven't noticed cramping since hitting the 2nd trimester
I did have lightly colored discharge in the beginning also (which I thought was my period starting) but that stopped by the second trimester at the latest (don't remember exactly when it stopped but it didn't last long).
good luck momma! :)

I don't think it's unusual. If it's bright red blood and you are break through bleeding, then go to the hospital. Otherwise, I think it's OK, just keep an eye on it and mention it when you see the doctor. It's probably from the bonus hormones in your body from being pregnant.
