Ugh. I hate this.

I had a slight bit of spotting yesterday afternoon. I noticed a slight discoloration on the toilet paper when I went to the bathroom so I did an internal check and I saw this stringy, almost creamy CF that was very light brown. Didn't see anything after that.

DH and I DTD last night. Didn't see anything. About 30 minutes ago, I went to the bathroom and the toilet paper was very light pink, almost salmon colored. So I called my PCP and asked if I could come in and get bloodwork done. I have an appointment this afternoon.

Please be sticky baby.

DDC



Praying for you Annie. This time around I haven't had any spotting but my cervix seemed to be extra sensitive with dd and I would spot/bleed after dtd or having internal checks in the first trimester.

I spotted during my first pregnancy with my daughter and all was well, but it didn't make me any less freaked out about it...hope all turns out to be fine. Good thoughts your way!

I haven't had any spotting since this morning. I keep trying to convince myself that it's probably just from DTD but I had some yesterday morning and that was before DTD. That's what's worrying me. Appt is in a couple of hours so I just need to keep myself busy until then.

Thanks for all the good thoughts and hugs.

O.K., I am back from my dr appt. So I let him do an internal exam and it turns out that I have a yeast infection and that seems to be the source of the spotting! Well, I'm not happy about having a yeast infection but he said my cervix is closed and he's doing a beta and progesterone check just to be sure.

Talked to the nurse this morning at my dr office. Beta level looks good at around 11,000. My progesterone was a little low at 10.9 so dr wants me to start progesterone supplements until we hear a heartbeat.
