6 Weeks Today-So Now I Am Spotting

So this is the big week for us. Last time we were pregnant I had a miscarriage in between weeks 6 and 7. I knew that when I hit this week of course I would be excited-but also scared.

Everything started out fine this morning. We were decorating our Christmas tree this afternoon and I just started feeling a little weird. Almost like I could pass out but not; if that makes sense. Next time I went to the bathroom, there it was. The tiniest bit, but brown spotting. I just cried.

We called the Dr's office and they told us the usual, spotting is normal in the first trimester, could be the crinone, nothing to worry about, etc. They told me to only start worrying if I were to start saturating a pad every hour with bright red blood.

Maybe this would be a different conversation with someone who had not had a miscarriage before. This is what I know from my experience; a miscarriage does start with brown spotting, brown spotting is something to worry about and is not normal, bright red blood saturating a pad every hour is a full blown miscarriage.

Maybe I have not been taking it as easy as I should be. I am usually just a go go go type of person. I am going to lay down for the rest of the day and pray like I have never prayed before.

I just don't know what we will do if this is happening again. Please do not let this be happening again.....


  1. Keeping you and the babe in my prayers. Hang in there and take it easy.

  2. Wishing you the best of news - sad that it couldn't be easier for you

  3. I am praying hard. I hope it all turns out okay...

  4. Thinking of you and hoping all is better today. The most unfair part of infertility is living in constant fear. Take care.

  5. Sending LOTS of virtual love and hope your way.

  6. Haven't heard from you... I'm praying everything is okay!
