So on Tuesday I had some light bleeding. It was dark red/brown. It was just when I wiped that one time and also yesterday but there was less. Of course I'm freaking out. My first pregnancy went fine. My last pregnancy I had a miscarriage at 6 weeks. I remember it started as a dark red/ brown color of blood then turned red after a few days. I'm 11 weeks today,  so close to 12 when the chance of miscarriage drops.  I've been hoping and praying my baby is okay. But Im still scared. I have a dr. Appt today. Hoping I get to hear a heartbeat,  then ill feel soo much better

I'm so sorry you are dealing with this. Sending gentle (((HUGS))) your way. Spotting can be perfectly normal so hopefully it is nothing to be too concerned about. Please let us know what you find out when you see the doc.

Fantastic news! Did they know why you were experiencing the spotting?
