Pregnant after a Loss

Brown spotting. Terrified.

I'm 9w 5d and when I just went to the bathroom, my underwear was full of dried brown blood. I didn't even feel it come out and there was nothing when I wiped but I'm a total mess. I cannot handle this. I've lost 3 pregnancies already. I can't bear to lose another. 

My due date is tomorrow from the baby I lost at 21 weeks. We're leaving for a trip tomorrow to distract ourselves. This timing is horrendous.

I have my intake midwife appointment on Tuesday (I've already had 3 ultrasounds) - is there any point in calling them or should I just wait? I feel sick. Ugh. 

ETA: I have no reason for why this would happen. We had sex 2 nights ago and it kind of hurt afterward (progesterone) but no other cause.

Re: Brown spotting. Terrified.

  • I am so sorry - spotting is always anxiety inducing - and to fall the day before your EDD is just salt in a wound. If it's brown and there's no pain the nurses will just tell you to wait - it might make you feel better for a nurse to tell you it's probably fine and if that's the case I would call. If it would frustrate you to be told to wait until Tuesday I wouldn't. I hope you are able to have a Peaceful trip with your husband this weekend and the spotting stops for good.

  • What sort of progesterone are you on? I am on crinone and have had a similar incident.

  • Brown = old blood, it could absolutely be from sex a few nights ago. ((Hugs))

  • @ceclarlinetlo I think you're right. I'll only call if it reappears or there's cramping or there's red blood. Sigh. I DID find the heartbeat with my Doppler last night - so that's reassuring! It's still alive, at the very least. :)

    @BornReady Prometrium - suppositories that make everything in there a little irritated. I had some brown discharge after sex when I was pregnant with my 2 year old - hoping this is a one time thing, too! 

    @waterfall213 Thank you SO much for your comforting words. I'm hoping you're right. Finding the heartbeat afterwards comforted me a little, at least!
