Mildly freaking out.

This morning I woke up to spotting. I was totally thrown for a loop. I called Aaron, and was in tears - and he more sounded frustrated than anything else. For me, it's more WTF. Seriously.

As the day has worn on, it's pretty much slowed down to nothing. I don't know what to make of it. I know all you gals will tell me it's normal, and after a transvag u/s yesterday, I know it could be expected.... but I was really enjoying a spot-free pregnancy. I wanted this time to be normal. Worry free. And now this.

I of course have a call into my nurse... but I've gone from feeling super positive to be a little down. I can only hope this is a one time, no big deal thing. Wait and see, as usual.

Hopefully they can get you in for another look-see. You're right, it's completely normal after a wanding, but I would be having the exact same reaction (actually, would probably be less calm and sane than you sound)

Thinking of you

Thinking of you! Hoping your spirits are lifted soon

I'd say you are probably fine as spotting is very common and it stopped. But that doesn't mean that I don't understand your nervousness. Hang in there, and hopefully the nurse can do something to reassure you very soon.

Hi!! I am a labor and delivery nurse who has been following your blog for about a week. Since you are just a little over five wks you are probably having implantation spotting. I hope your nurse will get you in today for reassurance and will pray that everything will go smoothly for you.

I was going to say implant spotting also. I had it too. When I spotted with baby #4 it was more of a flood then spotting. Scary but normal.

BTW, I have been following your blog for a few weeks. My sister is about one month away from having her IVF baby so I have ridden this ride with her. I only have positive thoughts you for.

I have no expertise to offer--but I can offer my hope that it stops compeletly. After your other spotting/bleeding experiences I can imagine you feel let down.

I hope spot has gone away and you get your peace of mind back. I will be thinking of you. BTW I am Zephra's sister.

You're right that it's probably nothing major, but it's always scary to see red when you're pregnant.

Hope it stops, soon,

I know it's little comfort but I definitely agree with what others have said - it seems like it would be completely natural after a wanding. You may just have a sensitive cervix and with it being hit there may have been a little bleeding. When you're pregnant your cervix can be very sensitive and there are a lot of blood vessels that can be disturbed. Almost every time I've had a wanding, exam, or cervical check while pregnant I have had a spotting episode. I very much hope it's nothing and that your office will be getting you in soon to help you feel more comfortable with everything.
