how I feel.

A short introduction--I'm Kristen and I am in my 8th week in my first pregnancy after my m/c in November. I had spotting on the Wednesday of my 8th week last time, then it went away and on Sunday it came back full force. By Monday night I had passed the baby.

Today is the Wednesday of my 8th week. After DTD I had spotting. It's too coincidental for me and pretty much freaked me out. I did post about it in my DDC, but I figured that some of the women who've helped me in the PL and TTCAL boards might be in here. I just didn't feel right posting about it there. If any of you are praying people, I would love to have some prayers sent my way for my baby. Please just pray for us to get through the rest of this week and weekend okay.

Sorry for the sudden burst in, but I never thought I'd be coming in here. Things seemed to have been going so well. I'm glad in advance that you're all here.

Hi!My name is Tiffani, and I have a 4 month old little boy, after a previous loss, at 21 weeks.I hope you stick around, these ladies really got my through this pregnancy.There is no question you shouldn't post, or anything you can't vent about.As for the the spotting, this is VERY normal, especially during the beginning of pregnancy, and even more so after DTD. The cervix can be irritated during sex, and cause light spotting. I never spotted after DTD,but I would after EVERY OB appt. I used to freak me out too.

I know how hard it was to get passed the milestone of the day you had your loss, during a new pregnancy.The days seem to drag.It's really hard, but you will make it through!If you need to talk about ANYTHING, feel free to post, and we'll help you out the best we can. I'll be thinking of you, and I hope you'll stick around!

Thank you.

I just guess I needed a little support right now. The doctor told me it was normal and everything, it's just hard to deal with sometimes.

I am glad you found us. I also started bleeding this pg at 9 weeks, the same time frame in which I lost my first. I was very scary but I am now 25 weeks pg. I hope that makes you feel better. This can be such a stressful time. I hope you feel you can vent here with us anytime.

Kristin, its normal to have bleeding after DTD. i know its happened to me a few times. I understand where your coming from. As im 18 weeks now, and tomorrow will be my 1 year anniversary that William has left, i was 18 weeks with him to. You will never be able to let your mind rest. Its hard to over come, but sometimes you have to be happy for what you have. And im sure that Babe is happy and healthy in your tummy! We are all here for you....Keep your spirits up! and in no time you will be holding your bundle of joy!!!

Hey Chica, I just want to let you know that I'm thinking about you and praying for you. I could tell you about all the times I bled with Maddy, but that won't make you feel any better. Jon, Jonathan and Maddy send their love too.

Thank you all so much.

This morning things are better. The spotting stopped before I went to bed. I'm feeling somewhat better right now, but not completely.

Hi Kristen! My name is Emma, i'm 24 & have experienced 4 1st trimester losses (including an ectopic pregnancy). I am also lucky enough to have given birth to a perfectly healthy baby girl - Gaby, who is now 15 1/2 months old.

I'm not 'the praying type' - BUT i will certainly be keeping you & your little bean in my thoughts. I saw your pregnancy announcement on the pregnancy loss board, and have been thinking about you since! (I think of all the ladies from that board who get their BFP's).

I know spotting can be terrifying - BUT it is quite common to have spotting after sex, particularly in the first trimester. I sincerely hope that is all that this spotting is. I remember when I was 5w4d with gaby (which was the gestation where I lost my previous baby) - and I got up & was spotting. It felt like such a 'sign'... but nope, now Gaby is a little looney, running around creating havoc wherever she goes

Hey Kristen! I just wanted to pop in & let you know you are in my prayers. I'm sending you some sticky too in hopes that the little bean stays put.

Praying for you Kristen!! I'm glad the spotting has stopped, its so difficult not to freak out when you see spotting, but I'm sure it was from DTD!!
