    Default Brown Discharge/Spotting... FREAKED OUT!!!

    So last time I had brown spotting it was after DTD. Well, because of the spotting last time we have NOT DTD since. Today when I wiped I saw brownish discharge/spotting and then I saw some in the toilet bowl. I immediately called my OB, left message. Still haven't heard back. I'm FREAKING ladies.

    Nurse just called me back, they are so frustrating and not much help. First of all, I am 10 weeks today and she claimed that an U/S wouldn't show anything!! WTF?? I had U/S's with both my previous pregnancies at 8 weeks and saw little babies and heartbeats. Why would they tell me they wouldn't be able to see anything on a U/S?? They offered to test blood 2 days apart, but UGH!! What a painstaking process!! I ordered a fetal doppler that is scheduled to deliver to me today, so I'm just holding out ALL hope that when I get home I can hear little heartbeat and can rest a little easy. The other thing, I don't feel very sick today which is scaring me. OMG!!!

    **Update**
    Fetal doppler will NOT deliver today. OMG I want to SCREAM, nobody and nothing is helpful. Nothing is making me feel better all I feel is anxiety. I had all my hopes set on that one thing and of COURSE it doesn't happen. NOT A GOOD DAY.

    I'm not sure what to say to help. Are you still spotting or has it gone away?? Also from what I read as long as you don't have cramping or fill a pad in an hour...it's not usually something to worry about. It could just be from your uterus expanding.

    I also would not be too worried about not feeling sick. Remember I was just bragging about not feeling to bad the last week...and then I posted that I was puking again?? I think at this stage it comes and goes...day to day hour to hour!

    Hahaha, thank you so much for responding to my rant. I was having quite the emotional day yesterday. I haven't seen anymore spotting, and I was really sick yesterday evening. I think your right we are now in the stage of it's coming and going all at the same time. I was just so frustrated and felt hopeless that I was receiving no real answers. The doppler will be to my house today, so I can't wait to hear little heartbeat. Waiting for my doctors appointment is killing me though, I had to wait until after April 1st because that's when my insurance kicks in and originally that's the day my appointment was scheduled for. I got a call two weeks ago that my OB is out of town that week so now I have to wait until April 7th. Have you been yet?

    I'm sorry you weren't able to get any real answers that would be so frustrating. But I am glad that you are doing better today

    I have my first appointment April 1st I get to hear the heart beat. It's just a basic check up. I then have an ultrasound scheduled for the 8th and a follow up with the dr afterwards.

    Your appointment will happen in between my two it will come soon enough!! Soon we will have so many appointments that we will be tired of going!! LOL

    Taking a walk may help calm you down! I've read that brown is old blood. I wouldn't worry unless its red! Hope you are feeling better!

    How did it go with the doppler??? I thought about getting one but then realized I would drive myself crazy trying to find a heartbeat and if I didn't find one I would freak out even more!!! LOL

    I hope everything is ok with you and you have some answers. I've had spotting before in a perfectly healthy pregnancy, for me it was after a PAP early on. Perhaps DtD just irritated your cervix a bit. It's awful the nurse told you that you couldn't see anything on an ultrasound at 10 weeks, that's not true at all. I've seen all my kids on ultrasound before 10 weeks.

    OH Ladies!! Do I ever have the update for you today.

    SO, DH was furious about how I felt after speaking to the nurse. So he took matters into his own hands and called the office, and as politely as possible let them have a piece of his mind. I received a call a little later, and they scheduled me for an U/S on Tuesday (The first day I have active insurance.) Well, when I got home that night my doppler was there, we tried and tried for almost and hour and found NOTHING. Well, I have used dopplers on both my LO's and I could find them fairly easy and always before 10 weeks. So with that being my previous experience, I was sure it was over and there was no heartbeat to be found. I told DH I couldn't wait, so off to the ER we went. Well, on the way I decided to call my family doctor just to see if he was available at the clinic. Well, he wasn't but there was a doctor there that told us to come in. She sat down and heard me out, she could tell I was just so mentally stressed and drained by the whole ordeal. She wanted to try her doppler just to be sure. She found LO's heartbeat in seconds!!

    Moral of the story, I'm writing a strongly worded letter to the company that sold me the doppler. Pretty sure it's a fake. So to answer your question about the doppler, it's all about which doppler you choose. I rented the first time around, and last time I used one with headphones which I didn't love that part of it so that's what I was trying to get away from with this one. Also, we don't have much to spend on one, so I was not able to purchase one of the medical grade.

    All in all, things are good. I didn't take my Zofran this weekend hoping to be able to have a bowel movement, but no luck. I was just sick and still clogged up. This LO is doing great, and the proof is in his/her Mama's life. I'm pretty miserable, but couldn't be happier about it.

    How is everyone else doing?? Anyone else feel like they are already getting fat? Wah..
