Customer Question

I am 8 weeks pregnant and am experiencing mild cramping and brown spotting. I had an ultrasound last week at 7 weeks 2 days and the baby was in the uterus with a heartbeat of 158 measuring 5 days ahead. It is my first pregnancy so I am extremely worried that something is wrong.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Brown spotting is normal at this time of the pregnancy.

This happens under hormone influence.

Your ultrasound was good.

Your baby is doing well.

Do not worry.

Take adequate rest, drink fluids.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
