I got a <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/pos.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="positive"> 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 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
i know that cramping is usually normal but i'm worried about the spotting. anyone else have it?

mostly brownish and not really a whole lot. i think the soft cervix concerned me. aren't pg cervix supposed to be hard and closed? it seems gone for now. i know the cramps are normal but i'm so worried.

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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nut">

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!<br><br>
oh and coopsmom, i guess we all have something to worry over from each end of the spectrum! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

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.<br><br>
I'm sure all is fine - sending tons of sticky vibes your way. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"><br><br>

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!<br>

Yea! We're pregnant!!<br><br>
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!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> to all!

Hi, Jenny! I guess it's going to be a long weekend for you?! I hope the beta comes back with stellar results. Wasn't there someone on the one thread that got a 4 or 5 or something? Was that you?

It was LesleyLu who got the 4. She also had a good bit of spotting if you remember, and she is doing great now.<br><br>
She is my inspiration!<br><br>
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!
