    Default Spotting/bleeding but not panicking - yet...

    So Tuesday afternoon I began to see a bit of pink on the tp when I wiped after peeing. I freaked out a little bit because my first thought was "It's happening again!" (two M/C's previously) but I didn't have any cramping at all, and when that happened it was awfule, almost like going into labor, so I figure I'd probably know if that's what it is. Well yesterday I continued to bleed, no heavy at all, but definitely bright red on the tp and dripping a bit after peeing, but not flowing like a period. I realized that my period was supposed to start yesterday, so maybe that's what's causing a little bit of blood to expell? This morning, there was still a bit of the pinkish wiping, still no heavy flow or any cramping at all. I am going to continue to keep an eye on it but my first appt. isn't until 8/29. So if I need to go in because of the bleeding I will have to see my regular gyn (ugh). I am still feeling the morning sickness that started last week and I am planning on testing later this week to see of the lines are still nice and clear. I am trying to remain calm and rational, but I cannot help but be a little worried in the back of my mind because of previous issues. Keeping my fingers crossed and praying that it's just a bit of "final period" getting out of my system...

    sending sticky vibes .. your body does have to get rid of the old blood so hopefully that's all it is .. also you can bleed from having sex while pregnant I always bled with both my kids after so if you've dtd lately that's another possibility ..

    I got light bleeding/spotting at 4 weeks when my period was due with both pregnancies, and at 8 weeks when my next period would have been due with my first.... just never turned into a full blown period. Keeping my finger's crossed that it's harmless for you!

    Sending sticky vibes. Had similar bleeding with my Son. Call your Dr and get it checked though. Good luck.

    Update: So as of this morning, I am still lightly bleeding but no cramping yet. I am taking that as a good sign still but I can't help being slightly dampened emotionally by it. I feel like I don't want to allow myself to get carried away and then possibly have the crash of disappointment, but I don't want to let it get me so down that it makes me chronically pessimistic the whole way through. Trying to find a balance of emotions (which is hard right now hormonally lol).
    So - still stable, but spotting I guess is the update for now. I am still keeping an eye on it so if it gets heavier at all I will go see my gyn.
    Thanks for all the thoughts/support!

    Still pink/red blood. Sigh. But I'm technically still in that "would have been my period" window. Day before yesterday it got a bit heavier but all I needed was a light panty liner and there was no clotted blood or anything, just thin reddish blood. It got lighter yesterday - even with walking all day around the national zoo. But today I am going to go have blood drawn to check the hCG levels so I can feel better about this. I don't know when exactly I'll have the results of the blood test back. I hate waiting lol.
