Ugh...tan discharge

I had a little bit of tan discharge just a bit ago. It was only a little bit and it was really light but it still scares me. I hate the worry of early pg!! It's prolly just leftover from the implantation spotting I had 2 or so weeks ago so I am doing my best not to worry overly much. I often have some spotting in early pg and most of the time it's been nothing. Can't wait for my drs appt on Thursday!! I am still super nauseous and have tons of symptoms so that is reassuring. T&P would be appreciated along w/ sticky vibes!!!

It's probably nothing, but I'll be thinking of you. Thursday is so close (yet so far away)!

I've been having the same thing off and on since my pap last week. Hoping its from that. I've heard that as long as its not bright red, that means its I old blood. Still praying for a sticky bean for you! (and me too!) Smile

Thinkin of you!! I know how hard it is to not worry! I had two days of discharge with DS - like a tampon amount- and with my M/C I had more spotting- early on before teh M/C.. and this one I've had none- yet every time I wipe I feel myself SEARCHING for it.. Almost wanting to force myself to worry- even though I know it's normal to have some you just cant HELP but worry!!
This is the worst longest wait during pregnancy I think!! Worse then the 2ww- it's like the 12ww!!!!
Excited that you have lots of symptoms and an Appt coming up!!! :):)

This has been the discharge pregnancy for me. For several weeks I've had red, pink, brown, yellow, tan - you name it (all in small amounts and infrequently, but scary nonetheless). And all of which I saw my baby with heartbeat after. Today I had brown with clear stringy stuff (sorry if TMI). I have another ultrasound tomorrow, so if everything checks out there I guess I can add that one to the list of what's "normal" too! Yeesh.

I know how nerve-wracking it can be. I just try to remind myself that unless it's a ton of red, there's nothing to worry about.
Exciting about the appointment on Thursday! Will you get an u/s? Sending super sticky vibes your way!

Thanks for the t&p and vibes girls!!

Michelle sorry you are having this too tho I am sure we are both fine!

Cait I search too lol honestly if I hadnt been searching I might have missed it it was that small of an amt. But then TMI when I saw it I stuck a piece of tp in a little and got a tiny bit more. I ask for trouble I know!

Andrea, yes I will get an u/s but probably not on Thursday. For some stupid reason the two u/s techs at my office dont work most afternoons, it has been this way for many years. And unless there is an emergency they dont send you to the hospital for one. But I dont know how far along I am really so I will guaranteed get an u/s yay!

I've just had to come to terms that I'm going to have a spotty pregnancy this time around, as can happen. As I mentioned, I've had every which kind of spotting so far. I went for another u/s today. The gestational sac has doubled in size since Friday, and the baby's heartbeat is well over 100 bpm now. Everything looks great.

I asked my doc what the heck with the spotting and he showed me all the dark area on the u/s surrounding the gestational sac. He said that's uterine lining, and as the sac grows that lining gets disrupted and has to go somewhere. Mostly it just compacts down, but it's also perfectly normal for some of it to shed out via the cervix and vagina. Unless it's bright red and filling pads, it's all good (and sometimes even that turns out to be ok).

Our babies are growing quickly now and the uterus is adjusting just as quickly. That's a beautiful thing . . . even if not so much on the tp. Smile

And I understand about the anxiety. Last night I told DH that it might be best for EVERYONE if I'm just put under for the next 7 months, and woken up for the delivery.

Champloo you can hijack all you want lol and I agree I need to see a hb on the u/s too!

Andrea that is great news! I am so happy you got to see a healthy growing bean again on the u/s! If you feel comfortable sharing I am sure everyone (including me) would love to see pics if you have any!
