I don't know if I'm over emotional because of the hormones, the fear, or both. Tomorrow would be CD 1 for me, and I've been having some brown spotting. I know that normally brown spotting is okay, but at the same time I usually get it before AF shows up full force.
I don't know how I could get 6 pos tests and still not end up pg, especially since I had several different brands, but I'm so scared this is not going to happen for me. I've been saying prayers for the last two days that this little bean is sticky and stays with me and healthy. So, if anyone else could send some good thoughts my way, maybe that would help.
And my poor family, I'm just on edge and it's not fair to them.
((hugs)) i absolutely understand how scary it is to be pregnant after a loss... Spotting DOES seem to be a common part of early pregnancy - and the fact it is brown is EXCELLENT - that means it's old blood, and is probably related ot the fact you'd normally have gotten your period today....
To get some peace of mind, why don't you call your doc and request a blood test to check your hcg levels? Tell them you've got brown spotting and you just want to make sure you're OK. A good doc will get you in for at least the blood test same day.

Try to relax as much as possible. I know spotting after you've had a loss is really scary - I spotted before my first m/c and started spotting this time around as well and I totally panicked. But everything ended up fine - sometimes spotting is absolutely nothing...Hang in there - I'll be sending good thoughts and prayers your way!
Our C-section is scheduled for Feb 16th! Then we'll know whether Baby Bennett is a BOY or a GIRL!!!
I just wanted to thank everyone for the encouragement and good thoughts, I really appreciate it. The spotting seems to have stopped at this point, and I'm hoping that means all is well. I will be starting the process of getting seen at the Dr. next week. I have to pee in a cup for them, fill out a bunch of paperwork, etc. I'm going to see if I can get seen by week 7 just so I can see and hear a heart beat to know things are going well, otherwise I won't be seen until at least 12 weeks.
