Scary Moment

We had our first and hopefully last scare yesterday. When I went to the bathroom there seemed to be the faintest hint of what I could only assume was spotting. When I went back a second time, there was more. There was more the third time so I called my dr. When they called back, she told me as long as it stayed brown, it's okay. Well that's so comforting. Of course my reaction is to call around and ask a few people if they spotted early on in any of their pregnancies. They all said no, but it was common and not to worry about it. I know this was coming from a good place, but it didn't help one bit. The internet just had a bunch of scary information. Alicea told me it could just be the baby burrowing down further in and that made perfect sense and I calmed down some.
It seemed to come in waves, just like the morning sickness. It would lighten up then get a little more, then ligthen up. After laying down most of the night, it seemed to have gone away. I called Holly, a mother of triplets and a nurse, and she said the baby was probably just implanting and it's totally normal, not to worry but keep her updated.

This morning when I woke up, it was gone. As I moved around and stood on my feet to get ready, there is a little bit there now. I'm going to try to do what everyone is telling me and not worry about it because it's still brown. There's nothing that I can do except pray and trust. We waited a long time for this blessing and I just pray that everything is ok.

I'm not really much help, but I'm ~ 2 weeks ahead of you and have experienced the same thing. My doctor told me spotting was completely normal, especially after a pelvic exam/internal ultrasound and/or sex (both cause it for me). GL! Have a great Thanksgiving!

I'm glad you're feeling better and the spotting has stopped.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!!
