im spotting- **update**

Just got back from the bathroom and Im spotting brown when i wipe. Nothing on my underwear but its enough. Its not red but its more of a brick color. Im really nervous I didnt spot at all with DS. No cramps so far.

*******************************************************
so I had a pretty good day yesterday not a single spot but then I woke up this morning and Im spotting again more than I did on friday. Its still brown and its really dark brown with a tint of red it in. I did have some cramps yesterday but i wasnt sure if it was just my pants to tight or it was real cramps.

I have no cramps this morning, but you know I have this horrible feeling in my heart that this is it. I really feel like maybe the baby stopped growing weeks ago and its starting to start a miscarriage. I have no symptoms none what so ever. the only thing i had was sore boobs and that is gone. by now I use to be gagging at smells and none of that.

all I want to do is lay in bed for the rest of the day and cry myself to sleep but I cant do that with a 2 year old. DH cant come home faster enough from work.

I'm sorry you have to go through this.
Have you got frisky recently?
Brown is old blood...and although not normal its not uncommon and if there is no cramping I would say get a big glass of water and sit down with your feet up and try to relax if you can for the rest of the day..get lots of cuddles from your gorgeous LO.

Hope it stops soon.
Huge hugs

ditto what lizbet said. you're not spotting which is good and brown blood is just old stuff. i know it's easier said than done but really do try to relax. the chances of it being anything is like zero. :bigarmhug:

I understand...you have every right to freak out..but in so many women it doesn't mean anything...its just old blood from something or other.

Is it possible for you to put your feet up and just relax?

I've had both red and brown blood due to different reasons in healthy pregnancies and both were made worse by too much activity and even being upright.

I didn't have bleeding with my m/c until almost a week after we found out by routine u/s. My experience is that m/c bleeding is fairly constant or increases while bleeding for other reasons is more sporatic and comes and goes.

Take it easy and I hope everything turns out.

I've been spotting almost the entire time. I've had about one week reprieve and some of it has been red. As long as the spotting stays brown, it's normal and it's fine. If it starts to pick up and is accompanied by HEAVY cramping (not little cramps), then go to the doc.
Little cramps are normal this early in a pregnancy - it's actually normal throughout the first trimester and being a second-time mom means you're more likely to feel them.

And just remember that symptoms come and go. I had none during my 7th week, but they came barreling back in my 8th week. Sometime, the hormones plateau and your body adjusts well.

Drink lots and lots of water to calm the cramping. Grab a favorite book and chill out. Put your feet up and just relax.

Everything is going to be fine.

Sounds really scary. Maybe the best thing to do is call the doctor and ask them about it? Hope everything is ok.

I just hope she gives me an ultrasound on Tuesday to see if the baby is ok...if everything looks fine than I will just take the spotting as something ok but right now I fear the worst

All I can do is say we are here if you need to talk.
And please try and rest up if possible.
And get lots of hugs from your gorgeous LO.

i hope its the baby getting comfy... I have a great DH that has picked up the extra so I can lay on the couch and rest.As of right now its seems to have gotten down barely anything there so Im hoping it stays that way. I hate this trimester i want it be over. I think the 2nd trimester is cooler anyways. you start to feel the baby kick and you belly doesnt look like a big fat blob LOL but a cute round belly

I'm so sorry you are having to go through this. I can totally relate. I had some spotting (brown blood) and cramping at 5-6 weeks. It was scary since I never had this issue with DS. The brown blood just turned out to be leftover blood from implantation and the cramping was everything just stretching out. I'm sure that is the case for you as well. Hopefully everything stops and you can start enjoying your pregnancy again!! Smile

im doing ok. I woke up and still had some light brown spotting. lighter than yesterday. I have been feeling some weird feeling on my right side. kind of like what you would feel when you ovulate but im hoping its round ligament pain. the feeling doesnt last long but i notice it. Its hard to explain it.

Karen- I'm thinking about you and hoping that spotting just goes away so you can relax! I hope you have an u/s too so you can get some piece of mind. At least to know why your spotting will be good.

I'm sending you {{{{super sticky vibes}}} and I'll be stalking for your great update tomorrow! Wink

Thanks Christina, I also get nervous since Im still early that if they do an ultrasound it might be to early to hear a heartbeat. I guess I will just deal with whatever happens tomorrow

its ok.. im still freaking spotting. I wish it would go away already. No cramps or anything. Im so nervous about my appointment today that I got a belly ache before going to work. 5 ½ more hours before I go. I've prepared myself in case I get bad news.. This early in the pregnancy you just never know

I am so hoping and praying everything will be okay.
Wish there were a way to make the hours move fast for you.
I can't say anything to destress you..but know we are all here waiting.
There will be celebrations when you come back and tell us all is good...its just a pocket of blood from the implantation that stook ages to come down.

if this bean sticks around he/she has already caused enough trouble. It took me 6 months to get pregnant and now this random bleeding for 5 days. It better behave for the rest of the time.
