Update: Our little one went to be with Jesus early this morning. I wish all of you August mamas-to-be the very best and wonderful, safe pregnancies and births for you you and your little ones.

So my spotting (every day since NYE other than a 4-5 day break that ended 4 days ago) turned into bleeding last night. It's light, but I am also passing small clots (I imagine from being horizontal overnight). No tissue though.

Part of me is just tempted to sit on it and wait it out, but the other part wants to know in case this is a blighted ovum or a large SCH that is threatening the baby, kwim? WWYD?

Personally, I'd try to get in to see the doctor. I understand it's an added expense and an u/s you didn't want to have, but I think it will give you some peace of mind & answers you won't have otherwise. Of course, I'm not an "unassisted" kind of mama, so I might be coming at it from a different point of view.

Thinking of you.

I know you'd hate to pay but you should definitely go to the doc asap to ease your mind. I'm sending positive vibes your way.

I'd also go to the doc. But I wouldn't wait to be worked in. I'd just go and sit until seen. True that it might annoy them, but I'd do it.

Sorry you're going through this. Best wishes mama.

Mama,
This happened to me, including the clots, (plus a sharp, hellish pain on my ovary that lasted days and made me terrified it was an etopic pregnancy) and my ultrasound last week was perfect. They could find nothing wrong. I hope that's the outcome you get as well. Check it out, if only for your peace of mind. Thinking of you. Please keep us updated.

I'd probably get an u/s if I knew it could benefit the baby. I'm so sorry you're going through this...I know it's very stressful

Well I have an appt with my old OB tomorrow at 9:30.... I am scared. So worried that we won't see a heartbeat, or that this was a blighted ovum or something (but at least in that case I will know that there was no baby to begin with)... Those of you who pray, please pray for us tomorrow!
