Anyone else?

I started spotting today after lunch and I have been cramping too. I had my appointment today.

I don't know what to think....

I haven't had my first appointment with this baby yet, but with my son they did a pap at the first appointment and I do remember having a tiny bit of spotting and maybe a few cramps. I also remember my OB warning me ahead of time that I might have spotting. I'd guess your cervix is just irritated. I would call your doctor if things don't improve, but I'd try not to worry too much.

That is completely normal. I am surprised the Dr did not warn you that it could happen.

The cervix is very tender

It seemed to slowing down, but I just went to the bathroom and a lot came out. It is not red yet, more pale pink - light brown and mixed with clear mucousy stuff (sorry TMI)

THat sounds exactly like what it is! My cervix gets irritated with the slightest thing and it's always pink and mucousy....then later turns to brown. I wouldn't worry too much unless it turns bright red or doesn't get better. You should see it start to turn brown and then it will go away completely. When that happens to me, I even get some brown into the following day I'm sorry...I know it's scary!

I never do pap smears when I'm pregnant for that reason. Messing with your cervix isn't a good thing. And you certainly don't need more worries when you're pregnant. I always wonder why they do that then, couldn't they just wait until after you have the baby?

I agree! especially if were with the same partner and we know there isn't any std problems lurking in there lol. i have per-cervical cancer cells everytime i get pregnant and they o away once baby is born but there is nothing they can do when your pregnant so whats the point?

I agree with you. But I was due for my pap anyways. I didn't spot with my last pregnancy after an exam, so it FREAKED me out!! I can't remember if I did or not with the first three. Plus, I have never gone this early to the doctor.

Sorry to hear about the cramping and spotting. I hope it has subsided! I have not had my first appt yet but I have heard of it happening to other women.
