Spotting again!

Well, I woke up to brown mucusy discharge this morning! So NOT happy. I had 3 days with absolutely nothing, and I really thought I was done... Sad

ANyway, my gut is telling me that my progesterone is low. My midwife didn't seem concerned and said we only really need to test for HCG, but since I have my second draw today, I'm going to try to insist on testing my progesterone as well.

This sucks!

Hang in there -- brown discharge is indicative of old blood. So, as long as it's not new, you shouldn't stress too much! You could just be get rid of blood from implantation.

So sorry! I would definitely insist on having a progesterone level done. It only makes sense to check it with the spotting you are experiencing. Hope it goes away.

I'm so sorry that you're having to worry Sad I agree with a previous post that brown means old blood, hopefully it goes away soon. I hope your second draw goes well today and that you get some good numbers.
