I got a
last night and today and good temps. I'm having cramping and slight spotting. I'm terrified of another loss. I knew I shouldn't get overly excited. First you obsess about ttc and now you obsess about freaking out LOL. Glad to join everyone and hope we all make it to the end


i know that cramping is usually normal but i'm worried about the spotting. anyone else have it?

I spotted brown and really dark dark red with my first pregnancy. The doctor was totally unconcerned when I told her! She said it was old blood leaving the body. Of course I was still freaked and was glad when it stopped around 12 weeks or so. I had a totally healthy 10 pound baby!!!!

I also spotted (brownish, dark red also) with my first for at least a week after I tested positive. It could have been longer. . .it seemed like an eternity. Now, of course, I am freaking out because I only spotted a teeeeeny bit on 10 dpo. My crazy mind has me wondering if this bean hasn't implanted as firmly as ds.

thanks shannon. i was talking with my friend yesterday and she said what she would do is wake up every morning, look in the morning and say I am Pregnant Today and try to just enjoy that day in the moment. So i'm taking her advice. 9 months is a logn time to look ahead and worry and even though i know how quickly i can go, these first few weeks do go slowly. if i'm going to m/c it will happen whether i worry or not so why not try and enjoy what i have right now! of course this souns great in theory but it's what i'm gonna try to do!

oh and coopsmom, i guess we all have something to worry over from each end of the spectrum!

When my SIL was pregnant with my neice (it was pregnancy following a loss as well) she spotted throughout the whole pregnancy but everything was fine. Talk about your nervous wrecks though! I'm nervous enough as it is without the spotting so I know you are probably a mess.

I'm sure all is fine - sending tons of sticky vibes your way.

Oh Denise. I am so glad that you have come to that conclusion. That is exactly what I decided when I woke up today. I feel like every person (with the exception of 1) I have told about this pregnancy has reacted in a very restained way. I AM SICK OF IT!!!! Just be happy for me goshdarnit! If I'm going to miscarry it's going to happen, but I want some congratulations. I want some glee!
This is for us:

:boypin :binky :girlpin :binky

Yea! We're pregnant!!

I went in for my repeat HCG this morning. I am feeling pretty angry at the MW for saying my 52 wasn't good news at 14 DPO. The more I read, the more it sounds like that really isn't far out of the normal range. It's the rise that matters anyway. I probably won't get the results until Monday, but that's ok because I am just going to enjoy my pregnant self this weekend!

to all!

She is my inspiration!

Good sticky vibes to you too!
Wow! Thanks! Yeah, everything is going well. My first HCG was 4, then 46,then I had the spotting, then 108. I haven't had another HCG. I'm feeling pregnant, uterus is stretching and boobs sore. So tired and hungry. Sometimes a little nausea. But I'm convinced now that everything is going to be okay. The spotting scred the bejesus out of me, but it turned out okay. I had no spotting with #1, so I didn't know what it would be like until it happened. So scary, and I imagine after a loss, even scarier. But I'll be sending my thoughts and sticky vibes to you all!
