OK. My lmp was 11/18. I got positive pregnancy tests since 12/13. On Wednesday morning, 12/17 I wiped and saw some brownish/pinkish stuff. I haven't had that much since. Nothing on my undies. This morning when I wiped, I saw only a streak. I've had mild cramps off and on, not unusual for me.
So, I am sort of freaking out..is it something? is it nothing?
I believe everything is fine, but it seems to late for implantation spotting, right?
TIA

From what I've read, it's actually very common to have spotting in early pregnancy. If you're really worried, is going in to get a beta drawn an option?

It is common but can't be from implantation like the other mama said. Implantation is usually 7-10 dpo and your body does not produce hcg (the hormone you need to get a bfp) until after implantation.

I'm going through the same thing. my lmp was 11/19 and I've had positive tests. but I've also had spotting. I went to the dr today and she put me on progesterone and ran a quantitative beta. Their in office test was only faintly positive, but drs office urine tests are notoriously not as sensitive as home tests.

There is a statistic that says that 30% of women will have first trimester bleeding and half of those go on to have healthy pregnancies. That was comforting to me. To quote my dr today - it's not always an ominous sign.

It is absolutely nerve wracking though.

Not in you DDC, but I've had major bleeding and continual spotting throughout my first trimester. I am 13 weeks now. It's really scary to see any blood, but it's not *always* bad. I hope the best for you and this pregnancy!

Thanks for the replies/support. I'm anxious to hear Texaspeach's results! I had some spots/streaks once this morning, only when I wiped. I took another test because I'm a dork! It was a digital, and within 1-2 minutes,it said pregnant. I just want the spotting to stop!! On the one hand, its barely noticeable. On the other hand, its all I notice!
I like what you said Jillian, I had already told myself this was going to be my worry-free pregnancy...and then I wiped and the worries flooded in.
I've been having babies since 1997, so this a shock for me.
Sticky vibes to all!

The same thing happened to me today. I am 4 weeks and 4 days. There's nothing on my undies but when I wipe, it's red and brownish. No cramps though. I already have an appt. with midwife on Tuesday to confirm pregnancy. We're in the middle of a snowstorm so I couldn't even get to midwife today even if they are open--and they may have closed b/c of storm! UGH this is agony! I'm sure everything is fine but it's very worrisome!

Please update after your appointment.
I haven't had anymore today. If it was to be a miscarriage, I'm wondering how long before actual bleeding?
Worrisome is an understatement!

Another question...I still breastfeed my 14 month old. He doesn't nurse lots during the day, morning/noon/bedtime. But at night, he nurses off and on ALL NIGHT!
I only notice the horrible/scary/barely there brownish/pinkish discharge in the morning. Could my all night nursing sessions cause spotting?
I know, I know...I'm grasping for straws!
