As some of you may know my last pregnancy ended in a stillbirth due to PPROM at 19 weeks (baby was born at 21). In the beginning of that pregnancy I had a lot of spotting, which the doctors all said was normal and that everything was fine. Obviously it wasn't, but that doesn't mean that anything could have been done, I know.
I was just saying yesterday to my DH that I really think this pregnancy will be fine because I have felt totally different and no spotting. Well, I spoke to soon. Last night I started spotting pink, which has since turned to brown, but it is still there. This did not occur after sex or anything of that nature. My BFF calls me and tells me I need to go to the doctor and I just really don't see the point. They will say one of two things. 1. It's normal. 2. Even if it's not normal there is nothing they can do. She thinks I'm just trying to be difficult, but I don't see the reason for me to miss work for them to tell me something I already know. They may tell me to come back if it gets worse, which I would obviously do in the first place. Am I being unreasonable or irresponsible?
There is no cramping or anything out of the ordinary except for the spotting. It's not like anything they say is going to give me peace of mind. I have already experienced something going catastrophically wrong when it is least likely.
Now I just feel like I get to worry for the next 6 months (or less, depending on what happens). My first pregnancy was normal and no complications. I just don't understand why now I'm having all these issues. Why can't it just be easy?
