Ok, I am curious if anyone else is going through this. I have had cramps since a week before my period was due. Of course I assumed my period was on it's way. It never showed and I continued cramping. I had 3 negative tests right around this time so I figured my cycle was just messed up from breast feeding. It was about 2 weeks after it would have been due (if things were normal in my body) that I found out I was pregnant. That was last Wednesday.
Last Sunday I went to the bathroom and had a very small amount of brownish pink stretchy discharge and there was very very very light pink on the toilet paper. I figured my period would come by the morning. I also had a really bad yeast infection (sorry if I am grossing you out) and went to get some over the counter medication for it on Wednesday, that is also when I bought the pregnancy test. Well the test was positive so I didn't think much about the very light pink On Sunday.
A couple days after my positive I had another very small amount of the brownish pink stretchy discharge (this has always been on the toilet paper, never in my underwear). A day or two after that I had a very small amount, maybe the size of half of a dime? of bright red blood in the toilet and nothing on the toilet paper. The past few days I haven't had anything weird and then today I had a decent amount of clear stretchy discharge. Like I said, I have been cramping since about a week before my period was due. I remember having cramps like this with my daughter and it seems like they lasted through most of my pregnancy. I don't remember having the clear stretchy discharge with her and I am positive I never saw any color through my whole pregnancy.
I think these cramps are normal for me, they feel like period cramps and they are annoying and uncomfortable. They are not so severe that I can't do anything by any means but I would call them a worse than mild for sure.
I feel really silly because I think about miscarriage constantly and I am scared to death of it happening. It is amazing how much you love your baby from the time you first see the positive result. I keep reading to see if what I am going through is normal but pretty much anything I read about cramps makes me feel like it is the begining of the end.
I am just curious if anyone is going through this now or if you ever have with past pregnancies. Has anyone else been having cramping for a while now? I know some of you have had the brown spotting because there are a couple posts out there already. What about the constant fear of miscarriage, am I just nuts??? Oh and I have been testing every few days just to make sure there is a dark line that appears fast. I will probably continue to test until my appointment next Thursday. Is anyone else being nutty like that?
Thanks for reading, I am hoping for some positive insight.
