Damned spotting again...

Went a whole week after my spotting episode last Saturday only to have spotting in the middle of the night last night (yes, still an avid tp checker, even at 4 a.m.) that went on until mid-day today. My only thought is that I was sort of straining (tmi, but I'm a bit constipated all of a sudden) and I've read that straining can cause a delicate cervix to have broken blood vessels that can cause spotting. Could this be it?! There was no sign of the spotting on my ultrasound on Monday, and the bean looked good. I just HATE not knowing what's causing this.

Made a trip to the grocery store today and bough prune juice, bran buds, pears. No more straining for me!

Yes, straining and constipation can do that to you. And if you are straining too much or your bm's are too hard, it can also cause pinkish-tinged TP when you wipe.
Im glad the spotting stopped. I hope the prune juice works for you. Ive also heard that apples (and applesauce or apple juice) are also pretty good natural diuretics.
