Spotting ?

I spotted just a little bit last night right after DH and I dtd. I assume this is normal and nothing to worry about? I frequently spot after dtd when I'm not pregnant but it just started happening after we had DS. My OB wasn't concerned when I talked to him about it before I was pg again. I haven't had any other spotting so I didn't bother calling him. Still, I never spotted or bled at all w/DS so I'm a little concerned. Normal, though, right?

Oh yes completely normal. The cervix is extra sensitive and extra blood flow can make that happen.

Re: Spotting ?

I would definitely say it's normal! But if it were me, I would probably call my OB tomorrow and make sure they didn't want me to come in for a check.

I only had one wipe's worth. I will call to make sure they think it's normal.

Thanks mamas, for the reassurance!

This is my assumption too.

Re: Spotting ?

I bet its totally fine. I had some early spotting with both of my daughters. my midwife always said if you still feel pregnant, you probably still are. Always made me feel better.

I have been fine since so I decided not to call. It was only one swipe's worth anyway which commonly happens these days (post-DS) when we dtd so I'm not going to worry. I'm only about 5 weeks so if it means anything more there is nothing they could do anyway. Hopefully everything is fine.

Re: Spotting ?

I had some spotting the day I got my BFP and now I embarrassed to say I think it was a hemorrhoid.

I'm sorry, but I am totally giggling. With DS I had a similar issue later in the game and was totally embarrassed by my freak-out
