I forgot to mention that the spotting I had the day of my first beta was likely an implantation bleed (we saw it on the ultrasound).

I started spotting today. 4.5 weeks. and cramping. My PCP told me to stop my beta blockers so I had a couple days of crazy HR, BP, palpitations and adrenaline surges and I think that caused more stress to the pregnancy than my meds. My OB told me today I can take my meds (for POTS) so I feel better emotionally and am just hoping things will calm down and the spotting will stop.

I'm spotting again. heavier now. darker red, with a clot. low back pain and pretty strong cramps. I spotted 2 days ago but nothing yesterday and I felt great yesterday. I had insomnia til 3AM last night and the spotting started this morning and is pretty constant. still just using a panty liner, but I'm really concerned. Had a beta done yesterday but I won't get the results til tmrw. HPT still said positive yesterday, but that doesn't mean all that much, as we know.

Wish I could just lie in bed and rest, both for the pain and being scared but also to try to prevent a m/c. But I gotta run around again all day today.

Hugs. Hope everything turns out okay, but keep us updated.

So sorry you are going through this. My midwife told me to take cramp bark or black haw. One teaspoon of one or the other to stop a threatened miscarriage.

I'm sorry you're going through that, joyakshi.

 

I'm glad the others seem to be in the clear so far. I had a scare with my son around 10 weeks, some pink spotting. It ended up being fine. With my daughter, I had some very light brownish spotting and wasn't concerned.  It's definitely normal, but also hard to distinguish normal from rightly concerning. Hope the rest of us have sticky babies!

i found out i was pregnant on thursday morning (home pee test) joy.gif...15 minutes later i started spotting (minimal amounts but dark dark brown).

it totally freaked me out...i was totally elated finding out that i was pregnant & then totally freaked out thinking that there was something wrong... 

i googled 'spotting in early pregnancy' & it seems to be completely normal & common...

for me, the spotting lasted for maybe an hour or so with mild, mild cramping...then totally dissipated & has not happened again in the past 4 days.

 

i do not remember spotting in my first pregnancy (mind you in was 11 years ago)...

I had brownish cm and light pink spotting (on TP) most of last week. Also cramping. It was the week I would have had my period. It seems to have let up now.

My sister said that during her first trimester she would get some spotting around the time she would have had her period.

I still notice some spotting once in awhile usually after a bowel movement. My midwife said that it was normal to have spotting after baring down during a bowel movement and after sex because our cervixs are more sensitive in the first tri.

I started spotting again yesterday. The most yet. Lots of brown and this morning some red/pink with mucous and very small clots. I just don't have a good feeling about this pregnancy. Now getting worried about an ectopic.

Thanks guys ❤

I feel like if I'm going to miscarry I just want it to happen already, I'm sick of this not knowing greensad.gif

Talked to my midwife who was reassuring but also realistic. talked about how miscarriage is this thing so many women have gone through but its rarely talked about publicly. Anyway not throwing in the towel just yet but just have such heavy mama's intuition about this one. It could very likely be off though! Dr.s appt tomorrow AM, maybe she'll have some salient info or advice.

Let us know how it goes LL.

Well went to the doctor, got blood work done and a requisition for an U/S. my MW is totally anti U/S though and says it won't tell us anything we won't find out a little later with some patience. Man I really want to go just to know but I trust her and my body and I'm going to wait and see what happens. Sigh.

Tinkrbell, that's a hard place to be in. I've been there. For you I hope your intuition is wrong.
post #39 of 73
So sorry you are going through this! Are you willing to try some herbs to stop a miscarriage? When I first started spotting my MW told me I could take cramp bark for a threatened miscarriage. Hope everything is ok!
post #40 of 73
The spotting has lightened up again in quantity and is back to light brown tinged CM. Feeling a little ray of hope again. Not sure about taking herbs, I feel a little like the body knows what it's doing...most of the time... Thanks all for your thoughts, hopefully I'll be able to stick with you!
