Re: pregnancy in trouble?

I know it can be scary but it's totally normal to have some spotting after intercourse or an exam. It's probably just from his penis coming into contact w/your cervix. I wouldn't worry!

Re: pregnancy in trouble?

So, I decided to take the day off from daycare (I am a chldcare provider) tomorrow and call the doctor to see if I can be seen. Hopefully they can do an ultrasound to determine if the baby is ok, or if I am miscarrying. I know every pregnancy is different, and with this being my 7th pregnancy (2 ended in miscarriage at 11 wk and 5 wk, 4 full term healthy babes, and this one), it could just be my cervix being a bit shaky (I hope). Not to mention my age...yes, I am 42. I am trying to keep positive thoughts!
i really appreciate the support from all of you!

Re: pregnancy in trouble?

I hope everything goes well for you at the doctor's tomorrow. I had spotting with my 1st pregnancy, almost daily, for a full 6 weeks, but at the time I didn't know I was pregnant (we weren't trying yet and I had all that spotting so I thought my period was just messed up). When I did find out I was pregnant I realized that I must've been very lucky to have such a sticky baby! Just wanted to let you know that spotting doesn't always mean you won't end up with a healthy baby. And according to what everyone is saying, it's pretty common. Good luck tomorrow! Let us know how it goes!

Re: pregnancy in trouble? UPDATE

So, I went to the Dr today and got an ultrasound. There is a baby and he/she has a heartbeat. I am still bleeding, so I may end up miscarrying, but as of this afternoon, baby is still there. They said heartbeat was a bit slow, but not unusual, and yolk sac on the large side, but again, not unusual. I go in Wednesday for bloodwork, to make sure hormone levels are going up, not down....I am just praying for the best!

Praying for you! I had spotting after a m/c, so I know how scarry it is- then throw in some preggo hormones, and paranoia didn't begin to cover it, in my case. FWIW, I had a "normal" pregnancy and birth after a handful of these spotting episodes. Don't hesitate to call your OB/ MW if you have any concerns! That is what they get paid to do...
