How much is considered spotting?

FTM Here and nervous. I'm 8w3d
For the last two days, every wipe leaves a pink stripe and (I think) it has increased. Its by no means period level but still makes me nervous. I had some light tummy pain Friday but I get nervous before teaching craft classes and I attributed the pain to that.
Am I over thinking all this or should be be going to the doc to get it checked out asap?

Re: How much is considered spotting?

  •  Don't freak out. A little cramping and even spotting can be normal but I would go checked out for sure.
  • My next appointment is week after next, I'll call Monday, see what the doc says and see if they want me in sooner :/
  • I would see if you can get in sooner. If nothing else, it will make you feel better. I know if it were me, I would be overthinking everything and making myself sick from anxiety- but then I don't handle anxiety well, lol.

    Also, I recommend changing your screenname- its hard to tag knotties and to tell the difference between them!

    Good luck lady!

  • Soooo bleeding more now.
    I called and talked to the nurses at the place I go for my OBGYN and they told me not to worry unless I'm filling a pad an hour. I'm a bigger lady, my parts don't really let me bleed onto a pad (not even during a period) I have to uh, wipe that out. (Sorry if its tmi) but I'm now getting like blood clumps? They are really dark almost black. But I'm not "filling a pad an hour" so they told me to wait til my appointment on Tuesday and talk to my OB then. I'm seriously contemplating saying eff that and going to the ER and getting it all checked out this weekend. I work all weekend and I don't want to be freaking out about this...

     I think if I was in your situation I would go to the ER.  If you decide to, go please keep us updated! 
  • ER sent me to Labor and Delivery since those nurses handle all pregnant women at our hospital. They said unless I'm in extreme pain to just wait it out because there isn't anything they can do for me. She seemed concerned that I haven't seen a heartbeat yet but just said I'll need to wait until my OB appointment on Tuesday. Here's to being a wreck all weekend! 
  • I would go to ER at this point. If there are clots, I would have concerns for sure. I'm sorry. It's not fair for you to have to worry all weekend. 
  • I'm sorry. That's super frustrating. I'm honestly surprised they said they couldn't do anything...hang in there.

  • Today I miscarred. I passed everything naturally at the hospital because I made them take me in. I found out I have a negative bloode type which may have caused it as I was not vaccinated for it. Keep on, keeping on Oct17 mamas. See you later ♡

    @BrandedCowgirl92 I am sorry for your loss. I lost my August baby around the same gestation you lost yours. I just want to clarify that you probably didn't lose your baby because you have a negative blood type unless you had a previous positive baby and your blood mixed. You were (or will be) given a rhogam shot after miscarriage in case the baby's blood type was positive because your body could form antibodies that could possibly fight a future positive blood type baby if it's blood mixed with yours. That shouldn't happen now since you've gotten the shot. Chances are there was a chromosomal abnormality and you have an 80% chance of conceiving a healthy baby next time like other women. Be kind to yourself during this time and I hope for a fast recovery for you!!! The TTCAL and TTGP boards may be helpful for you when you are ready.
    It's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most...not where you live, or what you drive, or the price tag on your clothes... There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind, this I've come to know! *ZBB*
