Oh, my. I could use a little reassurance if anybody has a moment, today--I saw some bright blood in the bathroom this morning. Just a very small amount, all on the toilet paper and nothing in the bowl, but this feels VERY alarming to me.
For background, I've been battling a stubborn yeast infection for weeks, and I finally finished what felt like a loooong treatment course, so my husband and I had sex for the first time in a while last night. It wasn't particularly vigorous, just some "hey, I really missed you!" enthusiasm, and we both stayed in bed and went to sleep afterward. Got up this morning and, first thing, saw red on the toilet paper.
I have also never, ever so much as spotted during either of my previous pregnancies, which makes me feel rather spoiled as I type it, but... Ack. I need somebody to tell me this is no big deal. I'm going to be wearing white underwear today and watching it like a hawk.
It's hard not to feel like this is some kind of gotcha for feeling so blithe and unconcerned over the past few weeks as my first trimester symptoms subsided.
She's here! Baby Yoshiko arrived on 2/7/15, and now we are a family of five.
