I think it's happening again...

I went to the bathroom about an hour ago and had some brown spotting. I am so afraid that this is happening again. With my two kiddos I never had any spotting so now to see spotting the only thing I can associate with is a m/c. I called the doctor and the nurse told me at this point there is nothing they can do since I am not far enough along to see anything definite on an u/s. So she is going to talk to the doctor about anything else they can do, but she said for right now I just have to try and relax and take it easy and remember that "brown is good". I am sorry, but I call BS on brown being good. It didn't work out too well for me last time. I am sorry to vent but I just can't believe that this is happening again.

i know it's impossible to not freak out, bot honestly i DID have spotting with both of my first and second pregnancies. I'm shocked that i haven't had any yet in this one. My first had it on and off for about 3 months, my second was for about 6 months! So it happens, just try to remain calm and positive :/

Mandy, I'm so sorry you had some brown spotting. It's always so nerve wracking to see any kind of blood, brown, pink or red. It may be too early to see anything on an u/s but you can ask for your betas to be checked. Call your nurse back and tell her that you'd like your HCG checked to make sure they are going up appropriately and also ask for a progesterone test as well. Sometimes you can have spotting if you have a progesterone deficiency. I hope that this will give you some peace of mind until you can go in for an u/s. Huge hugs!!

Mandy, it's so hard to hang on to hope when you have anything happen after a m/c. It's so incredibly hard to do, but Jina had some good advice about asking for lab work. All I can add is "Take a deep breath and try to not jump to conclusions".

I know how impossible that must seem...

I completely understand what you're going through. I had a chem in late September and I think I'm going through another one as we speak. It's heart breaking to get those few days of absolute joy and then see something when you wipe. I hope everything works out for you - wishing you lots of luck!

I know nothing will make the fear go away, but I did want you to know I have had some spotting in all of my pregnancies.

Thank you all so much for your support. Only a little bit of brown spotting so far today...TMI...after a BM. I keep praying that the spotting will stay away. I will keep you all posted and hopefully it will only be good news. Only 1 more week until my u/s so this little bean needs to hold on so I can see them.

A little bit of spotting today, still mostly brown. I have no idea what to think. I had the spotting again this morning after a BM and then was good all day until just now. There's not a lot but there is still some. It is just unnerving when I think it has stopped and then it shows up again. I have 6 more days until the u/s. I can make it 6 days.

Sorry the spotting keeps coming and going, the not knowing is the worst part. I'll have my fingers crossed for you for the next 6 days, hope the u/s looks good next week. :goodluck:

Wishing you lots of luck! I hope your spotting stops... but I talked with a nurse today and she said (as everyone else has) that brown is okay and as long as there is no cramping, its fine. So keep your chin up!
