nicole , mom to 3 boys here on earth 9, 7 and 4.5 and 2 girl's 2.5 and 10/16/11. Always remembering my babies in heaven: Sam (9/7/05) at 12.5 wks , Morgan (2/13/06) at 6 wks , Emeric (8/9/10 at 17 wks) and Pepper (11/26/10) at 8wks.
That can cause spotting. I spotted brown/pinkish on two different occasions. The first time I was in my 5th week and it lasted 24 hours. The second time was in my sixth week and it lasted about 12 hours.
I agree with PPs that pelvic exams and sex can cause spotting, but I totally understand you being worried! I will keep you in my thoughts and will be sending super sticky thoughts your way mama!

The pregnancy turned out fine, she turned two yesterday.
I went to the ER when it got worse, it took them 5 hours to even acknowledge me, and 11 hours before they sent me home. Honestly, I was so annoyed with how they treated me and dismissed my fears. Unless I was filling a pad an hour, I would avoid the ER and only deal with my OB/Midwife. DO call and let them know you are bleeding though.
s Hoping this turns out well for you and it is just a SCH.

I had one night of light red bleeding in my fifth week. Nothing for a few days and then I started spotting brown. A week after the initial bleed I had a scan that showed all was ok. I have now been spotting brown (albeit very small amounts, I have only needed a panty liner once or twice since then) since then....maybe a day or two without. I don't go back to the doc until next Thursday, but I am hoping that I might be one of those people who can report spotting and a positive outcome.
The uncertainty is one of the hardest parts for me....
Sending peaceful sticky baby vibes your way.
I'll be thinking of you and hoping for the very best. 's to you.
Just to give you all an update, I continued to spot all day yesterday, sometimes very light brown, sometimes dark red, but never bright red and never very heavy. I've also had no cramps or back pain so far. Today I'm still spotting, fairly light and only brownish so far.
I'm encouraged by the stories some of you have shared, and I'm still hanging onto the hope that this pregnancy has a chance of continuing. Unless things get worse, I plan on calling my doctor first thing tomorrow morning, and hopefully keeping my appointment for Tuesday, at which time I will face whatever the reality of the situation is. Thanks for letting me know you're there and that you care.
I hope everything turns out to be okay. I know it can be heartbreaking and depressing to lose a pregnancy even this early. Do you still have morning sickness, tiredness, other pregnancy symptoms? With my m/c I lost all those symptoms 2 days before it happened.
My last pregnancy at 9 weeks I woke up in a pool of blood (pretty graphic, sorry) I passed a clot on the bathroom floor and was in hysterics, we drove to the hospital at 5am and I was admitted and had to wait for my OBGYN to see me at 7am, when he walked in he said okay ill send you for a U/S at 8am and will book you in for a D&C this afternoon. He did say however that its a good sign I wasnt crampy.
I couldnt stop crying, it was just awful. Well we went to the U/S and saw our little jelly bean bouncing around happily with a beautiful strong heartbeat!! No explanation for the bleeding just an awful experience.
I was told it was a threatened miscarriage and I spotted until 13 weeks. Each spot though stressed me out completely.
I was still vomiting and at no time did I cramp with the bleeding. That jelly bean is now 3.5 years old!!
I am currently 9 weeks pregnant and so nervous that I will go through that again.
Best of luck to you and I really hope its happy news.

I know how nerve racking is and I am saying it after I had one miscarriage last July, pregnant with a January baby again. NOw it's in the back of my mind at all times but what I decided to do is to save all this energy for when and if is needed. Try to distract yourself with things you like to do, relaxation helps, time with friends, walks... anything that will bring you a peace of mind. And I will pray for you and your family to have good news tomorrow at the exam.
