This post is possibly TMI. Sorry.

I didn't call the doctor. I didn't think it was warranted. I never saw anything when I wiped-just a small bit of spotting. Plus, there really isn't anything the doctor can do for me at this point. I'm on progesterone, and my levels have looked good. Bloodwork isn't really going to ease my mind, to be honest, because we all know everything can be fine one minute and crap the next.

So, I drank a ton of water and tried to think good thoughts. And, I am mostly in a zen place. No more spotting. Next doctor's appointment is Thursday, for more bloodwork.And hopefully, everything will be okay.

I'm sure everything is ok....spotting is actually pretty normal for the beginning of a pregnancy. I'm glad it has stopped.

I'm praying so hard for you guys!

I agree with Jess, spotting is normal (I googled like mad last night after reading your post)
So glad you have found some peace and so impressed you could get this zen so soon.
I was told by a friend of mine that when she got preggers she was told to drink electrolytes (either gatorade or the sports fizzy powder).

Sorry to hear about the spotting scare. I hope that your new found calm is just the Rx for this and everything goes well on Thursday. Good luck Queenie.

The spotting could be caused by the progesterone suppositories irritating your cervix. That's a fairly common side effect I think, but I'm sure you could look it up. Just a thought.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

I had about three days of spotting early in my pregnancy. I know everyone says it's normal and most of them say it happened to them as well but it still scared the sh!t out of me.

Thinking of you!

Sounds great! I'm still keeping you in my thoughts. Hang in there!

So sorry to hear about the continued roller coaster ride you're on. Can't things just get text-book easy for you? Geesh! Praying that bean is healthy and thriving.
