spotting (updated #32) BAck from appt

Ok I am trying to not freak out , but I went to the br and when I wiped I had brown blood. I didn't have anything last night and then I had this old blood ..trying to not freak, I haven't had any cramping or anything lately...any thoughts??

As your Dr for an ultrasound. Brown is less worrying though! You don't have to answer this of course but did you maybe DTD or get some other burst of excercise at some point in the last couple days? Try to relax may ladies spot off and on during PG.

Brown I wouldn't worry too much about. Any bleeding, however, during pregnancy warrants a call to your OB, no question. If you're not having any cramping or bright red blood you and baby should be OK, but again, call your doc ASAP to be on the safe side. Good luck!

I hope it's nothing. The doctor should have you in for a check up for sure.

I didn't mention it here, probably mostly because I was trying to keep myself calm...but I had almost the exact same scenario last Thursday morning. My sweet midwife offered a home visit, but I declined and just saw her at clinic Friday morning. Baby's heartbeat is still strong and in the low 140s/high 130s and my uterus has grown nearly to the height of my bellybutton!

So, since then I haven't had any more concerning signs or symptoms. All seems to be well Smile I'll keep you in my t & p - I'm sure you are perfectly fine too!

Oh, I'm keeping you in my thoughts! Make sure you go in as soon as you can - even if your doc is not worried, insist that they check you out! Then you can stop worrying.

I've thought about going to the er but the one here is pretty ridiculous...I doubt that they would do anything here so I don't really want to worry my family by leaving our weekly family gathering...the spotting has changed back to brown once again...I swear it has a mind of its own....and for some silly reason I am scared of The ER I have never been to the hospital besides giving birth to my son and it freaks ne out otherwise....I know Im silly...I am really trying to hold.off until tommorow unless the spotting changes in flow...I am barely getting anything on my underwear and its only when I wipe...thanks for thinking of me ladies...my.husband doesn't really understand the worry I go through

I understand dreading the ER...long waits and high copays can be frustrating. Does your insurance coverage have any sort of after hours advice nurse you could talk to?

Back from my appt . I don't have the results yet as to why I am bleeding...my doc thinks it might be a piece of my placenta coming off??? But the tech did tell me I am having identical twins!!!!!!
