Pregnant after a Loss

Brown spotting at 12 weeks

I just went to the bathroom and noticed some slight brown spotting. I am 12 weeks today. This is how my previous loss began and I'm totally freaking out.

I did have sex yesterday morning and I took a big poop (tmi?) before the spotting began.

Freaking out.

    Pooping can cause irritation to your cervix which can cause bleeding. Call your doctor and see what they say. I hope it's nothing!

    Edit: Normal poop activity shouldn't, but if you have to strain a lot it might. Just to clarify :-)

  • @djtippietoes I sent you an email. <3
  • I had spotting from 11 - 15 weeks with this pregnancy.  It was terrifying.  The boys looked fine on the ultrasound. And fortunately it eventually stopped.

  • Thanks for your responses. It seems to have stopped for now.
  • I had brown spotting a few times from week 11 to week 13. It wasn't enough to make me use anything. My dr said sometimes its just a normal thing with how your uterus and cervix are adjusting and the ultrasound tech said sometimes the baby can rub wrong against your uterus causing some bleeding. Not too sure on that one but I would either go to an urgent care that has an ultrasound available or ask your dr if you can come in for a quick check.

    It definitely wasn't enough to use a pad or anything.  It was just a few wipes when I went to the bathroom and then I went again like a half hour later to check it and it was like one wipe and then it went away after that.  I'm really hoping it's my cervix irritated from sex.  Fortunately, I already had an appointment scheduled for this morning, so I will find out. FX!
