Welcome! Wow your first delivery sounds ouchie! I would be a bit traumatized too after that, ouch!
I'm sorry to hear about your loss. That's so hard, and usually we're not prepared for it at all when you have a normal first pregnancy (like I did too). No one really educates you on the statistics of how many women have miscarriages. They keep it all hush-hush until you have one...then everyone wants to tell you that they had one too!
I definitely had spotting with my firstborn, right around the time I would have had my next period. The first period after conception was a missed one, then the next one after that I had some light pink/red spotting, only enough for a pantyliner. My OB said it's perfectly normal, and that some women even have full on periods their whole pregnancy (you know they're gonna be the ones on "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant"!). So take heart!
