9.5 weeks pregnant and spotting this morning

I've spoken to my healthcare provider and she said to rest. If it gets worse I should call back. I asked if I should stop breastfeeding and she said no, until she heard ds was 17 months. Then she said I should stop breastfeeding.

Right now I feel like my body's priority should be to my unborn. But I feel sad at a sudden end to breastfeeding. I guess that's it though. I don't want to risk this pregnancy. I pray it will be ok. But no more breastfeeding my son. I can't believe it's over. He's been nursing four to five times a day and he's been relishing it especially at night and naptime.

Does anyone have some experience of this?

Jade,

So so very sorry to hear your sad news. Hug your LO close and allow yourself to grieve. Some PP IRL tend to think it's sad but no big deal as it happens to many women. But it is a big deal.

I am so very sorry. My heart aches for you. Hold your baby close and do whatever comforts you. If it helps at all, I was in a very similar situation a couple of months ago and my dr assured me that at this point in pregnancy the pregnancy hormones override breastfeeding hormones so that was not the cause of our loss. My son was 18 months and nursing about 4x day. Please know how much I feel for you and hope you can rest and recover. We are here for you. hugs

I am sorry to say that this story doesn't end well. We lost the baby last night. Things took a sudden turn for the worst and we rushed to hospital. The staff were all great. My concerns on that front were unfounded. Now we will take some time to heal.

I am hoping for you that everything turns out fine and that the spotting is just that and not signs of a bigger problem. So sorry that this is worrying you and that the language barrier adds to that - I can only imagine how stressful that must be. Hang in there - hugs - and sticky baby vibes to you.

Oy, how difficult to have all the language difficulties and cultural differences on top of an already hard situation. I am hopeful too that this will be benign bleeding, especially since you're not having any cramping or anything. I know mommas who had lots of unexplained bleeding during their pregnancies only to have big fat healthy babies... and I'm crossing crossables you'll be one of them!

I agree, at this point, I don't see how weaning cold turkey would help anything, if anything it would increase stress on everyone, and that's no good for anyone. I'm glad you were able to nurse your son peacefully last night.

Keeping you in my thoughts and hoping Monday gets here before you know it!
