I just started spotting. It seems like a lot. I'm so scared.

Is there anything I can do?

I don't have any advice (besides calling your doctor?) but I just wanted to send you lots of positive thoughts and hugs. Hopefully this is just normal spotting that a lot of women seem to experience.

Well Cassie, first thing I would do is call your Dr. Keep in mind that if you don't have any pain and the spotting is not bright red, you and the baby are probably OK, but call Dr. anyways.


(((hugs))) honey!!! I went throught that, and it's totally scary!!

oh, i know how you feel...totally scary. i was only a couple days farther along than you when i had my spotting/bleeding. call your doc, take it easy. if it gets bright red, heavy, or painful, call your doc again. become a couch potato this evening, no getting up unless you have to.

i hope it's nothing, just scary spotting early on. lots of us had it. P&PT.

Huge (((HUGS))) Cassie - I am so sorry this is happening to you. But it can be completely normal, as many have said - quite a few women around here have experienced spotting early on and it usually proves to be nothing. I think you'd feel better if you could get in to see your doctor or midwife right away - perhaps they can order an early u/s to see the source of the bleeding. It's frustrating, but there is nothing you can do except take it easy and call in to your clinic to see what they suggest. :/ We're all here for you and thinking about you and that bean! Stay stuck, little one!

Cassie,


Like the other ladies have said, try to stay calm and call your healthcare provider.

Hi everyone,

Thank you to everyone for your advice, encouragement and P&PT.

I ended up going to the hospital where, after a long wait, I was seen by a very nice doctor who did an ultrasound. The baby was right where it should be and he said it looked normal for this stage of pregnancy. He wasn't able to find a fetal heart rate, but he wasn't worried about that - he said it's not uncommon to not be able to see it at this point. He said the bleeding was most likely caused by the bean settling in (well, those weren't his exact words:). But, as long as the bleeding goes away in the next day or two, he said not to be concerned.

So, I'm very relieved. And DH loved seeing the bean:). (I could barely see anything from where I was laying, even though the doctor tried to point things out to me.)

Thanks again everyone. You ladies are the best! (((HUGS)))

(((HUGS))) I hope you're being quiet because you're resting sweetie.


I hope that's it's just a little spooting & goes right away again. There's no way to stop what ever it is. Cal the Doc, rest & drink plenty of water is the best you can do. Hang in there. Let us know what's up when you can.


***sticky healthy baby vibes***
