Has anyone who has been pregnant with twins had a small amount of brown discharge at 17 weeks pregnant?

Hi lovely, brown discharge can mean old blood. Because you are pregnant with twins and you are bleeding please contact your local maternity centre for advice.

I did not have twins personally, but my sister did and both her and I had some dark discharge happen at periodic times throughout our pregnancies.

It CAN be totally normal - sometimes little bleeds can happen early on but the blood doesn’t make its way out the vagina until it’s dried and brown.

However, I always advise women to communicate any sort of spotting symptoms to their doctor or midwife. Even if it’s nothing, it is still important for them to know in case at any point something about the spotting changes - at least they’re aware of it and tracking it. I hope this helps!!
