So, I'm about 5 weeks + at this point and just when I felt like I was wrapping my head around the reality of this pregnancy, I started spotting. I have other children, but I never spotted in my previous pregnancies. Any one else experiencing this or have you had this experience in the past?
No, I haven't called him yet. I don't think there is anything we can do at this point other than wait and see. My DH is really amazed at how calm I've been, but I really feel that it's in God's hands.
I had some pink spotting and cramps during my 4th/5th week with my twins. And I just learned something new this morning. We had an u/s to see the heartbeat of our little bean and the tech saw a small bleed above the sac that she said was probably from the LO burrowing in. She said that a lot of times the body will re absorb it, but that it could also make it's way out. She said that if I notice a little bit of spotting, it's probably the trapped blood.
There isn't anything that can be done if you are miscarrying, but it doesn't necessarily mean you are. ((hugs)) wishing the best for you.
Hope you don't mine me lurking.
I had a little spotting early on with my first. Especially a day or so after DTD. And my little one was perfectly fine.
With number 2 I had implantation spotting and that was all, until week 13. JUST after we told family and friends (tmi) I starting pouring bright red blood. So much that I had to change my MATERNITY sized pad 3 times in the ER waiting room. But I had an u/s and baby was fine. It turned out to be placenta previa. Eventually the placenta moved up and my second was perfect too.
So, just know that spotting doesn't always mean the worst. Try your best not to stress over it. (Easier said than done, TRUST ME I KNOW) In the meantime, I'll be praying for you and your little bean.

I'm still spotting (Day 3) and I have intermittent cramping and back pain. DH and I went to see our doctor this morning and we did a blood draw to determine my beta number (over 7800) and we'll do another draw on Saturday to see if we are progressing or if I'm miscarrying. I'm tired today and emotionally spent. My doctor doesn't think things look good, but he was surprised my number was so high, so who knows. I want to be positive, but I think I'm just too scared.
I thought maybe things were getting beter as I didn't have any spotting most of the day. Then, mid-afternoon my spotting is back with a vengence. It's copious and no longer brown, but red. My cramps are worse too. So much for being positive. Blood draw is tomorrow at 11am. Unfortunately, I won't get results until Monday.
It's going to be a long weekend.
