I called Dr. office because I am a panicker. Of course, I get the BS that the on-call Dr will call me back.
Help me relax.
I have never had this but from what I have read and heard brown spotting is ok. It is just old blood that could be from DTD. As long as you aren't filling a pad an hour with bright red blood you should be fine. But definitely talk to your doctor or nurse.
Although I have had none with this pregnancy, I did have brown/darkish red spotting with my second daughter...It was early, around the time I would've gotten my period...Just old blood like previous poster said...it lasted off and on about a week. Hopefully it is nothing, and as long as it doesn't turn bright red, you should be fine!!
This happened to me with my DD early on in the pregnancy and I was so worried! Everything turned out fine for me and I hope you hear from your Dr. soon with similar results...
Well here it is hours later and I am still having brown spotting. I called and left yet another message for the on-call dr. I cried most of my drive home... it took 3 and half hours today because of the holiday traffic. I walked in the door and have parked myself right here on the couch.
I am just praying everything is ok.
I am sorry that the spotting hasn't stopped. Take it easy and try to relax...if possible. We are thinking about you and praying for you and your little bean.
Thanks Mandy. I appreciate it.
I am sending good thoughts your way for sure. Hope everything is okay.
omg, i am so glad you posted this because I am experiencing the same thing, just a little brown spotting the last couple of days. Sounds like it will pass or just be off and on. I have been reading and it sounds like room is just being made for the emryo to grow, but please let me know what your doctor says because I wasn't thinking it is serious, but this is my first so kinda stressing a little.
I will let you know... I am just so upset that the on call Dr didn't call back. I definitely plan on telling my Dr on Monday that his backup was absolutely worthless.
I literally have come home today from work and parked myself on the couch. I am off work for the next 4 days, so I plan on staying as relaxed as possible. My boys are away visiting their dad so I can actually get away with staying still. My MIL is here visiting and she noticed DH has been basically treating me like a princess and asked what's up. We just changed the topic.
Grr, that doctor should have called you back! Scary! I have also read that light spotting is ok. Have not experienced that myself though. Have you heard anything yet? Did it stop? (((((Hugs))))))))
It did stop, and I am just hoping it stays away.
The on-call Dr still never called back. I plan on letting my Dr know that his on-call backup was just BS. I am only due to see this Dr until our 7 week ultrasound and then I will be released to a regular OB, who I hope has a better back-up in case of issues.
Thanks for all of your good thoughts guys, it means a lot.
I can't believe that he never got back to yoU! Grrr! Glad you are letting your doctor know...hope this doctor gets an ear full from him.
That is totally irresponsible of that doc not to call you back. Praying the spotting stays away and you get to talk to your doc soon.
