Crap

As if I didn't feel bad enough about complaining on an infertility blog.

I'm spotting.

Reddish, pinkish streaky spotting.

*Updated: My OB's office wants to take a "wait and see" approach until Wednesday. They want a week between ultrsounds to assess growth and development. If I am no longer spotting by Wednesday, it's business as usual. If I am, then we'll schedule an ultrasound. If I start cramping or the bleeding increases dramatically, I have to call back.

CALL THE DOCTOR. You need another u/s ASAP. Remember that this happened to me, and Road Blocks & Roller Coasters, and a whole slew of others, too.

I know, honey, I know how many times you have been down this path, and how scared you must be considering your history. And how your earlier entry must feel like it's somehow bad karma.

Please keep us updated, and insist on that dr. visit NOW.

I know it's scary, but try to keep your chin up. Remember, I bled bright red blood through week 19 and my little punks are doing just fine...

You're in my thoughts, and please keep us updated.

Are you on the pro.gestorone [sp?] suppositiories? Just wondering. I know alot of OB's prescribe them when women have recurrent early m/c's, or are undergoing IVF/IUI treatment. I was on a low-dose version of them, just as a CYA for the OB.

I am scared with you, Katie. I am praying for the very best outcome here.

Hang in there, but it is going to suck until Wednesday. Hugging you!

I agree to keep thinking positively. I spotted from wk 6 to 11 during my first pregnancy, and it was all normal. Still, spotting is always anxiety provoking.
Thinking of you often,
((hugs))

Oh crap! I'm so hoping this is just a little bump in the road and nothing more than just a little scare. Praying for you!

I am sorry that you have this on top of everything else to deal with. I am praying for you and the little bean!

Rachel said...

Just wanted to say I'll be thinking of you.

We all know how common spotting can be, but that doesn't take away any of the fear. And it's not like you haven't been down so many possible roads. Thinking of you and your bean! (((hugs)))

And it's Wednesday...how are you?

Considering your past history I'm surprised your OB isn't taking a more proactive approach to this. I hope it stops and fast for your sake!
