I'm five weeks today. Started a tiny bit of brown spotting this a.m., this afternoon had cramping and a small amount of red blood mixed with cervical fluid so that it looked "pale red," but not pink. It's gone now, I'm home on bed rest for today and tomorrow, by which point, MW says it'll either have happened or not . . . . I'm teary and scared and all of those things that you'd imagine I'd be, I guess.

I just wanted to ask for some sticky baby vibes . . . .

Thanks, mamas.

I know how scary that can be, I've had spotting/cramping in both of my pregnancies. In fact with this pregnancy I had spotting almost daily for weeks, which terrfied me. Please know that you can definitely have the symptoms you are having and go on to have a completely normal pregnancy. Sending lots of sticky baby vibes to you!

STICK BABY STICK!!!

I also had spotting (and bleeding in my first) in both of my previous pregnancies and all was fine.

You're in my thoughts and I'm sending lots of healthy baby, calm mama vibes your way.

Wishing you sticky vibes! I hope this is just a scare and nothing more serious!

Make sure you do NOTHING! I had a scare this week and my midwife knows I love to crochet. She told me to do nothing, but I didn't think it would pertain to crocheting! But she specifically said not to do crochet, crossstich, or ANYthing because even little things can effect and stimulate the uterus.

Hope all is well! Let us know!

Hey, mamas, thanks for the good vibes - thought I'd give you the update.

I'm having heavier, dark red bleeding today, with a few clots and pretty severe cramping. It's not constant, still coming in waves, but it's not looking good. I'll stay positive until it's really over, but even I think it's looking pretty inevitable.

Thanks again for all the thoughts . . . .I'll let you know what happens.

Thanks, mamas.

I'm having a beta sunday night (my mom's a lab tech - so I'll circumvent all the Dr. and Nurse junk and just have my own mama help me ) just so I know for sure.

Just wanted to update you all and say thanks for the hugs and wishes. It means a lot!
