This is just out of curiosity, I'm not worried or anything.

My little sis just had her baby. I am pretty sure I was having "sympathy" symptoms of pregnancy at time. She had her baby, and I was there for the delivery and spent a night at the hospital as well. Now she's home, and there's a newborn squalling (making me instinctively want to hitch up my shirt and feed him, but he's not mine and I have no milk anyway )

I noticed some spotting yesterday and today. Pretty minimal but I *never* have spotting between periods. Seriously, never.

Is it possible that her cloud of hormones has made my hormones a little wonkier than usual?

If your really "intune" with your energy and your sisters....quite possibly your body could be reacting to her hormones. I truely believe this can happen. Ina May Gaskins talks about this in her books.

yes... but also the stress you are obviously going through dealing with the changes could also cause mid-cycle spotting.

(even if you are excited, excitement is a form of stress!)

True, it could be stress. Definitely high stress and crazy around here (in a good way).

Af came a full week earlier than expected. Which is good because dh returns next week and I am so glad I'm not going to be cranky and in pain the first week we've seen him all year.
