That describes both how I feel and what the spotting looks like today.
I continue to feel awful, which most people would consider a good sign. I was this sick, if not sicker, with Gummy Bear, and we all know how that turned out. However, I do think it's a good sign most of the time.
The spotting was red and pink yesterday, but has slowed to a brownish sludge that really only shows up when I look for it. That is good news, I think, although I would feel better if it would just go away altogether.
I still have so much to do before Christmas. We celebrate with M's family this weekend and I finally have everything purchased, but nothing wrapped. I will probably just do gift bags, as that is decidedly easier and I have a bunch already. They are the "already been used for six Christmases" variety, so wrinkled and faded, but they will do. It's the thought that counts, right?
Thank you for the comments and advice. I really appreciate it all.
