Sorry to rant before properly introducing myself, but I forgot how much early pregnancy sucks! So I had some light light spotting last night. Sorry if this is TMI but I wiped and there was some pink tinged... um stuff. Naturally, I freaked out all while telling myself that this is normal and I shouldn't freak out.
This morning I had nothing and was happy with that. Then I wiped again just now and there was a little more pink tinged, ya know, stuff. This is irritating. I called the OB hoping she would be like this is completely normal please stop calling us.
Instead the medical assistant who answered the phone instilled a sense of panic that now makes me think I'm going to inevitably miscarry. I told her that my symptoms have leveled off. She basically said that could be a sign of early miscarriage and that I should not hesitate to contact the office if I have any cramping and the bleeding picks up.
I know that cramping at this stage is normal, I have read that symptoms are on and off in the beginning of pregnancy and I've also read that spotting can be normal. It's just- this sucks! Everything is either a sign that things are completely normal or that my baby is dead.
I wish there was some way of knowing. I now have to wait 3 whole weeks to find out. Maybe I can beg my doc for a scan at the end of next week. I've seriously contemplated lying and saying the bleeding has picked up just to get an earlier ultrasound.
Anyway, rant over! Anyone in the same boat. Please give me positive stories!
Any amount of bleeding during pregnancy is scary. My doctor has insisted that spotting in early pregnancy is very normal and that I should not worry. As is cramping while the uterus is growing and the coming and going of symptoms. All she says to do is note everything down and bring it in with me to my next appointment and as yours said call for sure if it gets worse. Maybe if you cant get in for a scan earlier your doc could at least run some blood HCG tests to ease your mind. I hope you can find something to ease your mind soon!! Hang in there hun and welcome to the group!!!
Thank you *Kiliki* for the amazing siggy!!
I had spotting with my 3rd son and was so panicked I exaggerated and they brought me in for a scan at 6w2d and there was a healthy a baby and a HB.
Bleeding is so scary and unsettling. Maybe they can do hcg testing to be certain your levels are rising to ease your mind.
I've been spotting this whole pregnancy. Brown, and pink and once a little red was mixed into my cm. I went in and they said I have a friable cervix. Which basically means it's SUPER sensitive and bleeds easily. So now this is apparently how my whole pregnancy is going to be. Ugh!!
Yes, I had spotting right up to six weeks. At six weeks two days it turned into light bleeding. At six weeks three days I was bleeding and passing clots so I went in to the ER and they did a quick scan which showed a happy little bean.
I hope you're ok! It is s scary to deal with but apparently quite normal.
I haven't had any. I almost feel left out! JK. I'll do without. I would totally flip if I did but the rest of the ladies are right. Try not to worry too much but insist on help if the bleeding gets bad and you get cramping that worries you too much. First thing you learn as a mother is that it's okay to throw a fit for the health of one of your kids, even if it turns out to be a false alarm.
I should mention that I bled with my first pregnancy - like actually bled. Somehow that doesn't make me feel better lol. My son is perfectly healthy though. Thanks for your kind words ladies. The pink tinge is gone for now but I still have a lot of like ewcm. I never had this with my first pregnancy. I also have some cramps that are not strong they're very dull and they make me feel a little ill. I guess I have to wait to see if im miscarrying or if this is part of the process.
I know that brown blood is considered okay, especially if it's free from clots but how nerve wracking is it when it actually happens! I had this with my first pregnancy (which turned out fine). At one point the blood turned red then it stopped the next day. My OB said it was likely a build up around my cervix. Did you schedule an ultrasound?
On my front, there still isn't any real bleeding, just blood tinged discharge. I'm going to chalk it up to hormonal changes for now. Trying to feel more zen about the whole thing today.
