Grrr...I absolutley HATE to be a downer...I'm still spotting this morning and it's getting more red. I started with brownish blood at 5am yesterday morning. By last night it had tapered off and I was feeling good about it. It's about the same consistancy, only when I wipe, not on my undies, but a little more red, then some more brown the next time. Is this totally a bad sign? Am I surely losing this little one because it's going reddish? This is torture. I hate it. I've never lost a baby before. I've always had super easy great pregnancies. This one has been crazy. I've been a lot more sick and now this. I just don't know what to think. Thanks mamas for listening to me vent!

i had some bright red spotting, really bad cramping and a sudden loss of symptoms one day a week and a half ago and i was sure that was the end for me. then it went away as quick as it came and now i feel totally sick and miserable and feel like everything is probably fine, so i guess some bright red bleeding is ok? i know it's stressful not knowing what will happen and i hope everything turns out ok for you.

Hang in there. It's VERY scary.

I know, I had some pretty big bright red spotting just past five weeks, it was SO SCARY, I was crying, upset, didn't get out of bed for a whole day, had follow-up blood work the next day which showed my hcg was still going up. Saw the heartbeat a week later.

for you!

Spotting can be a sign of low progesterone, a pregnancy that is doomed, or absolutely nothing at all. Sometimes the endometrium kind of evens itself out, losing some in the process.

If a blood test would set your mind at ease, call your doc or midwife or whomever to get a quantitative hcG test.

Hang in there.

Oh, poor you. I just a day of bright red bleeding last week. I'm rH- so I wanted an ultrasound pretty quickly, and rhogam, but everything was fine, and the bleeding stopped (after it had stopped and started again). I think it's been a few days now, at least, long enough I've stopped worrying. It's so stressful, but hopefully it was just a burst blood vessel or something! Can you get in to see someone?

I just had brown spotting on Monday and was petrified. You must be really scared.

But like the others said, it could be nothing, or could be something. Just hang in there and hopefully it will stop! Take it easy and rest and drink some tea.

I spotted for a week and then it stopped and now I haven't spotted for a week and I'm definitely still pregnant. I spotted between weeks 6 and 7.

THANK YOU MAMAS for all your input! It's been such a roller coaster couple of days. I'm still spotting brownish blood. I'm having very mild cramps. I thought for sure this morning it was the beginning of the end, but now I"m not so sure. I'll just wait it out. I use a mw that lives over 4 hours away from me and I'm also very hands off and dont' do any blood work or u/s's. I'll just wait it out. My mw is coming to town to help another mom she delivered for a few months ago with a birth certificate, so she's going to stop in. I'm only 8w3d so not sure I'd be able to hear heart tones anyway, but I'm sure we'll try. My sil is about 3 weeks ahead of me and she had the same thing a couple of weeks ago and she's still fine, so that is what I'm hoping for. It's just a waiting game as of now. Thanks again for all of your input and I'll keep you posted!

I am right there with you. My bleeding has really slowed down and so have the cramps. I have yet to pass any clots or anything tissue like. My MW suggested a blood draw, but I am not able to do that right now. I don't really know what is going on.

How are you this morning?
I'm not spotting at all this morning. I woke to pee twice last night and there was nothing both times. I'm very hopeful now! My mw will be here tomorrow afternoon. I'll be 8w5d so hopeful we'll get lucky and hear heart tones with a doppler. We'll see

I'm still need a liner, but it is only brown blood now. No clots or anything yet. I'm really dragging my feet about going for a blood draw. Maybe after the weekend.

I am glad it stopped for you! You must feel relieved.

ETA: My friend that is due the same time as me had bright red blood last week. Turns out she has a sub-chorionic hematoma. She did end up passing large clots, but the baby is fine. I'm not so sure that is what I am experiencing though.

With DS I bled bright red blood for a few days at 9 weeks and he is a beautiful 16 month old now...I was a wreck, but I rested as much as I could (I was teaching at the time) and oh the doctor kept reminding me to stay hydrated....

For me - no.... anytime I bleed it usually is not good news. I have had 5 losses and they all started out with spotting- then bleeding. I know others have had no issues and had great outcomes, but that hasn't happened for me ever. The best way to see if things are ok is to get a blood hcg done and check the levels. Wish my outcome was better...but wanted to give you the other side of things. I would get a blood draw so you know if you need to worry or not...or maybe get on progesterone if you are low...

to both AmBam and Jazzmin.

I am going through something similar this pg after a m/c in November that started with spotting at 7 weeks that continued on and off for 3 weeks. I wanted to encourage those of you who can't or don't want to get tests or ultrasounds. I had my betas drawn this week and they were "inconclusive." Even though I had them checked, I still have no answers and have to just "wait and see." Both of you are in my thoughts and I am hoping for the best outcomes for all of us.

I just had some spotting when I went to the bathroom, thought of this thread, and came to read everyone's opinions.
Looking forward to updates, AmBam and Jazzmin.
I very conveniently have my first MW appointment today, so I will request having my HCG levels checked. I'm not cramping, and have no blood on my underwear, just a bit on TP. Hmmm, guess it's hard to talk about spotting without giving TMI!
I've never miscarried before, and spotting is super scary
for us spotters

Jazzmin, Sihaya and MommaMoo~ How are you this morning? Anything changed?
My mw is coming today. Not sure it will make much difference. Think it's too early for a heartbeat with a doppler and I won't do labs. I'm sure just seeing her will make me feel better though. I feel optimistic now.

Sending super sticky vibes to all of you. It is so stressful! Keep me posted!

When I went in for my appt, I was informed that the MW was delivering a baby, so I'd have to reschedule. When I told them about the spotting, though, a very nice and helpful RN came out to talk to me, and said that hopefully, it's just a busted capillary. She sent me for my OB panel, and I'm going back in at 5:30 to see the MW. I am continuing to have brown blood whenever I use the bathroom, though. I don't have any cramps and I still have a big appetite, so that's a little bit heartening.

I might have some helpful advice for my fellow spotters, though. I have a great book by Aviva Jill Romm, "The Natural Pregnancy Book." She has plenty of recommendations for threatened miscarriage:
Do NOT eat any foods straight out of the fridge. Also, no tropical foods, citrus, or salads (unless locally in season.)
Eat warm foods. Miso and chicken soups are good, as are hot cereals and root vegetables. Drink tea and room-temperature water. Continue eating that way until symptoms have been gone for a week.
Vitamin E can strengthen the placental attachment to the uterus. You can take up to 800 mg daily for up to three weeks, but don't exceed that because it can cause the placenta to become TOO attached.
Vitamin C taken in doses up to but not exceeding 1,000 mg per day can help, too.

DDC Crashing

About 5-6 weeks in I had a bout of pretty bad bleeding. There was a fair amount and it was BRIGHT red. I had some light cramps (I think I caused them by freaking out, though)

My son is going on 11 months

I had an ultrasound a few weeks later (scheduling around the hurricane made it impossible to get in before that) and they saw a pocket of blood around implantation...she said the fetus probably implanted on a capillary and broke it. Anything from sex to a sudden change in position (I started bleeding after standing from lying on the couch) can make it bleed...

I'm so sorry there are so many spotters in this DDC

I hope this turns out to be nothing for all of us.

I am not really spotting anymore. I have been scouring the internet on what to expect if this is/was a M/C. Yeah, that wasn't a good idea. Everyone's experience is so varied and there are so many different reasons for spotting; I still don't know.

I did go and have blood work done and hopefully I will have some answers tomorrow. If it is a M/C, I going to eat Mexican on Sunday and enjoy a nice big margarita.

DDDC:

I spotted 2-3 times with bright red blood that was a good amount, then for 3-4 weeks solid of darker brown blood. It was scary and then depressing...

I'm 29 weeks now. Best of luck to you all!

Oh goodness mama! I just ate a big salad for lunch and have been eating fresh mandrin oranges for two days. They are delish. We've almost gone through the whole bag! I think I'm good though. The fact that I'm gagging and dry heaving every 10 minutes and am exhausted is a good sign!

I'll be looking for your update later! Hope all is well!

You too Jazzmin~ I'll be waiting to hear your results too!

DDC crashing. I was in the October DDC last year with my fifth baby and had two seperate bouts of light spotting that lasted three days each. My pregnancy was fine and DD is now 4.5 months old. I hope all of you spotters have an easy time and healthy pregnancies. Not knowing is the worst so I hope you have definitive answers soon. Good luck to you!

I hate to be debbie downer, but I have had two pregnancies (this is my third) and the first two I did have spotting. The first pregnancy, I spotted from 7-9 weeks continuously. Everything turned out fine and I now have a 17 month old. The second pregnancy, I started spotting at 8 1/2 weeks and bled until I lost the baby at 14 weeks. The OB kept saying everything was fine, he had a heartbeat, yada yada yada, but he died. I felt like something was wrong and I guess I was right.

Soooo, I'm not sure what to tell you. I pray 20 times a day (at least) that I won't have any spotting with this third pregnancy. I'm at 7 weeks now, so I'm in the scary period...

I had intermittent pink and brown spotting with my daughter between 5 and 7 weeks and went on to have a complication-free pregnancy and a healthy baby

I've also miscarried twice and both of those times began with spotting that gradually got heavier. I don't remember the details of the first (7+ years ago and an unintended pregnancy), but the second involved red spotting when my period would have been due that lightened/went away and then eventually turned into the equivalent of a very, very heavy period over the course of a week.

Hope that helps!

Thanks everyone for the input. (Even if some of it is depressing)
My mw just left. We couldn't get a heartbeat which I knew was a possibility at this point. I'm 8w5d and that's pretty early with just a doppler. She said I could get an ultra sound, but I'm not interested for a variety of reasons. I feel ok about it. I really feel like all is well and if it's not, then it's just not meant to be at this point. I'm not going to sit and make myself sick over the situation. Frustrating...YES, VERY...but what do you do? My uterus is measuring 9 cm which is right on...so now I wait. I'll see her again in a couple of weeks to check for heart tones again.

Hope all of you other "spotters" are hanging in there. Sending lots of and . Take care mamas!

That's a very good perspective, and one that I've been trying to have. The MW I saw today tried to be reassuring, since my brown spotting is tapering off and I don't have any cramping, but I'm not sure that everything is fine. Several nights ago I had a troubling dream about dead fish in a tank. I didn't want to look it up, since I knew it would be bad. I looked it up today, and sure enough, swimming fish is a typical dream for pregnant women. My fish were dead, though

Life is to be enjoyed...not just endured!
