I started bleeding on Sunday, was like a light to normal period for me (which are always relatively light), went down to light spotting yesterday and I'm still spotting some today. I assumed I was having a miscarriage but the morning sickness has increased, I'm hungrier than I was last week, I'm still peeing constantly and feeling thirstier than normal, and I'm a little more tired than usual. This is all too strange to overlook...

I'm going the UP/UC route, so I won't be getting my hcg levels checked or anything like that...I'm just going to wait and see what happens. I'd love to be a February '09 mom, but if it's not meant to be then it's not meant to be...

I hope you all enjoy your pregnancies

It's my understanding that a m/c typically has heavier bleeding. You can get spotting from many things: implantation, sex, even constipation (because the inside bits all start bumping into one another and that can dislodge some blood).

Hopefully everything is fine. Keep us posted and good luck!

I had a friend who had a completely normal period TWICE due to a uterine septum.
