    Default Scary spotting! **Update Aug 28!**

    My spotting, which has been pretty consistent up to this point, took a scary turn today. It's been light brown all along, but this afternoon it turned dark reddish brown, and a lot more of it. My doctor's office closes at 4, so now I'm sitting in a busy emerg waiting to be seen. I didn't tell anyone that I'm here, I don't want them to worry for no reason, but I have a really bad feeling about this. I'll probably sit here forever waiting to be seen, seeing as I'm not visibly bleeding or dying.

    I really hope that I'm just overreacting and that this isn't the end for me. I don't know if they'll order an ultrasound, but what would they look for at 6 weeks anyways?

    Jessica, I wish you all the luck in the world. I know first hand how scary spotting can be. At 6 weeks, the sac (and maybe baby) can be seen. Here's hoping they see both and both are fabulous! KUP

    Praying for you! I have been in your shoes and it sucks. I hope everything is fine and the spotting is just baby burrowing into a comfy home for the next 9 months.

    At 6 weeks, you should definitely see the gestational sac & yolk sac, and possibly the fetal pole & heartbeat. But remember, sperm can live for up to 7 days inside you before they meet the egg, so your dates can easily be off by a few days even if you know exactly when you DTD. I found a sonographer's textbook online and was reading this stuff after my U/S yesterday - I am losing my mind!

    UGH, I went through that with my DD. Just try to stay calm, it could be nothing. Please KUP!!
    You should be able to see the sac by now.

    i truly hope it is nothing to worry about. BIG HUGS!! stay calm and KUP. My m/c I am currently trying to recover from, and always seem that they start as light spotting and then eventually increase and lose the pregnancy all together...BEST of LUCK! It could be nothing. But I defiantly know how alarming bleeding can be.

    Oh Jessica. That is so scary. I hope its nothing or a subchorianic hematoma or something that resolves itself. Hugs girl. I will be keeping you in my thoughts.

    Jessica, I'm so sorry that you are going through this. Spotting (especially red) is so terrifying. I hope that you got good news that it is just a subchorionic hematoma or something like that.



    Please keep us posted.

    I hope it's nothing as well. I have heard about a lot of girls who have spotting that even turns red and they carry full term. KUP!
