1st Trimester

1 tri spotting= how much?

 let me preface DH and i are not TTC just yet....

I posted earlier this week on 6-9 mo board that i was late for my period and was going on 35 days today.  (mind you in all my life i have been 28 days give or take a day even after having the twins) so when i was about 33 days into my cycle i started to worry but all my pregnancy tests kept coming back negative.  I called my ob just to see what he thinks bc i was getting some light faint spotting yesterday (whihc again is not normal for me AF usually comes on like a tidal wave hahaha) 

The nurse said it could be to early to tell if i was pregant and thats why the tests were coming back negative (or i could not be pregnant) i asked her about the spotting and she said this is very normal for the 1st tri if i am pregnant or my period is on its way.  I should wait 1 week and if nothing then my ob will run blood work.  ok thats didnt help at all hahaha...

( might be TMI so sorry!) Well this after noon i noticed a small gush of blood when i went to the bathroom.  I assumed it was my period and moved about my day feeling very stupid for having called my ob.  That was at noon today.  Not another drop of blood until this evening i went to go #2 and obviously had to push a little and another gush of blood.  I wiped and only found the left over from the gush of blood.  Went back a few min later... no blood.  This as i said earlier all seems so wierd to me bc my periods have always been very typical. 

Long story short my question is... "spotting" in the 1st trimester = how much blood?? Do i count this as my period and move on about my buisness? or should i keep an eye on this a bit longer? 

I was very blessed with my twins i got a BFP 1 day before my missed period hahaha no complications and very safe healthy pregnancy.  So im admittedly a bit nieve to stuff like this.  TIA

    To answer your question just keep an eye on it. It's odd that it's been 35 days and you are normally 28 days. If it continues to be odd bleeding you might want to ask your doctor to pull betas, the bloodwork can pick up on your levels earlier than the HPT. Spotting normally occurs if you've carried something heavy, done any strenuous activity, sex, etc. The OK blood is usually brown.

    Sounds like you are quite ready for another baby, so I hope your period comes soon!
