Spotting and really scared

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I just started spotting this morning. Really freaking out. I don't have a midwife yet we were supposed to meet her tonight for a consultation. Not sure what I'm going to you because I really hate doctors and hospitals. My husband is on his way home from work... Just please keep me and the baby in your prayers!

I would call your midwife and talk to her now.  Even if you haven't had an appointment yet, she can give you some direction.  In the mean time, try your best not to stress, and know that you are not alone.  I pray all the angels and saints and the Lord be with you at this time.

I agree, call your midwife. Most of them are caring enough to help even if you haven't met with them yet. Or, I know you don't like doctors, (me either) but I had to be put on progesterone with this pregnancy. So they may be able to help. I'm seeing an OB through 12 weeks then switching to my Midwife.


In the meantime, prayers going out for you and your sweet baby! Remember that spotting doesn't always mean there is a problem. I spotted with my daughter and everything was fine. I lost my second and third babies and went from barely spotting to tons of blood. It is super scary and I know that! Praying everything is fine!

I have spotted with all my pregnancies, and everything has been OK.  It is scary though!

Well the bleeding really increased on Thursday and I knew I was losing the baby. I did end up having a natural miscarriage at home and am very glad that I went with that route. I talked to that midwife and she said I could stay home and I would "know in my body if something was wrong." She was very comforting and helped me feel grounded and to trust myself.

Now I just have to figure out how to deal with the depression and devastation. greensad.gif I miss my baby. greensad.gif ... It hurts so bad I can't breathe sometimes.

Thank you for all your care and concern and support. Please continue to pray for my healing, if you can. I hope you all have healthy, beautiful pregnancies and a peaceful journey with your little blessings inside your wombs.

Philothea, I am so sorry. When I had a miscarriage in 2009 it really helped to read the book "About What Was Lost," a collection of essays about different writers' miscarriage experiences. I'm glad you were able to have it naturally at home--I saw what you said in the other thread about feeling connected to your body. Wishing you healing and peace.

I am so, so sorry that this is happening to you.  I wish you quick healing, and lots of support in the coming months (and years) in the aftermath of losing your baby. I will of course continue to pray for you and your sweet little one.

Philothea-  I'm am so very sorry for your loss. I know how devastating it is to lose a child. I lost two back to back last year and was very depressed. I didn't want to leave the house because seeing a pregnant woman threw me into tears. A book that really helped me was "Couples and Miscarriage: healing together" -by Jody J. Nelson. It was so very helpful for me because it is written by a guy who, along with his wife, has lost. I never realized the pain it caused my husband too, so this book really helps you to support each other and realize that the pain and feelings you have are normal because you are grieving. So if your DH is willing to go through this book with you, I believe it will really help. At least it did for me and my DH. I actually think it brought us closer instead of pushing each other away (what we were doing.) Anyway, I will be praying for you and your family. hug2.gif

I too have been there. I had a little ceremony for my baby; including a burial. It really helped. Wishing you healing.
