I haven't had any spotting this pregnancy (and none with dd) until last night. I went to the bathroom and there was pink mixed with the cm. It only happened the one time. I freaked a little bit (have I mentioned I'm a worry wort, lol). But I'm still having lots of symptoms including increased morning sickness that came back after disappearing last week.

So I called my doctor this morning for peace of mind. It turns out they think it's from bf'ing my dd. The way they explained it made a lot of sense. Each time she bf's my uterus contracts just like in intercourse. Since the cervix is so sensitive it's not uncommon to get a little bit of spotting.

Well, Olivia's teething (the dreaded molars are moving up) and she's been very cranky and clingy and nursing more than she usually does.

The nurse said unless it gets worse or I need a pad I shouldn't worry about it. I feel much better now! Whew!

now that you mention it, I remember pumping and my uterus contracting/bleeding more after I had Holden, so that does make sense!

glad everything is ok

I never would have thought about that but it does make sense. I'm glad you got some reassurance!

Glad the doctor has a reason and it's normal.

spotting in general is worrisome! I would be on the phone with the doc ASAP too.

Glad they think its okay.

BTW I nursed all the way through one of my pgs, and at the start of a few others.

Oh that's good! It sounds like they aren't concerned at all and they are sure that it's just from the bf'ing! I've never heard of that but it does make sense. Hopefully it won't take long for the uterus to adjust to the breastfeeding and there will not be any more spotting.

It's always scary to see blood during a pregnancy, even a little bit! I'm glad you called the doc and got some reassurance
