I started spotting on Monday. In and of itself, I might not worry too much, but I had an early mc in July that started the same way. I was also having some light AF-like cramps, though those have stopped.

I had a beta done on Monday, it was 38,144 at 5 weeks, 6 days [27DPO], which is good by itself. I go today for the 2nd one, and I'm so nervous.

I still have plenty of pg symptoms, but I did in July until the actual bleeding started, but I'd been spotting for at least a week or more by that point. I'm noticing an aversion to sweet things, which I went through in July as well, and didn't experience with my son's pregnancy. My boobs feel smaller and less sore, and the nausea is less, though very little sounds good to eat.

All could still be fine, but it just feels so much like July, and I'm freaking out. DH is useless in emotional situations like this, and I haven't told anyone else that I'm pg.

Any words of wisdom? Any hope?

TIA

That waiting must be SOO hard. I'm sorry this is going on. I hope it isn't a repeat of July. Do keep us posted.

I'm afraid I'm new to pregnancy, so I don't have any advice. Just try to relax and remember that pregnancies can be very different. I hope your numbers are through the roof today!!!!

I know it's so easy to worry. The fact it you don't know anything for certain until you get your next blood test back. Spotting during preg. is quite common. Symptoms ebb and flow, so until you hear otherwise, consider yourself safely pregnant.
