Back from doctor

She checked me out and said she saw what I was talking about and that it is extremely light and brown and she isn't worried. She said it was on the cervix and it's old blood. If it gets worse or there is cramping or red blood I have to call again but I will probably have some more brown spotting this week. She also told me many women spot during the first trimester and are perfectly fine and they really don't know why. I REALLY hope I am one of those women.

I feel a bit better now. I mean I don't really have a concrete answer as to why the spotting but the doctor isn't concerned. My friend at work said she should have done another ultrasound. She didn't think there was a reason to but my friend thinks she is wrong and I should get a new doctor.

I am too tired and nauseous to do anything else today. I was able to eat soup and toast. It is going to be hard to work when feeling like this but I have to. I'm sorry this post is a bit run on and not coherent but I am exhausted and wanted to do a quick update.


  1. Hi I've been following your blog for a couple weeks. First of all congrats on the BFP!! Given your history I can totally understand the way you're feeling about the spotting but I have heard (or read) that the worse the morning sickness the stronger the pregnancy so feeling ill is a good sign. I of course am no expert but thought I'd share that with you lol. And not sure if its helpful but hope you start to feel better soon :)

  2. It was helpful. Thanks for the comment :) Yes, feeling like crap is very reassuring at the moment - lol

  3. (((Christine)))) I'm sure you're doing fine! I know it is natural to worry and you must be counting down to 16 weeks!

  4. Hugs! I always hear spotting is normal...definitely doesn't make it any easier to see!!! Hope you can relax this weekend!
