Cautiously moving over here... bfp and spotting

Hey ladies!  I've been a part of the ttcal board for a while, m/c in feb, and had to take a mental/emotional break towards the end of june because, well, I was obsessing :).  Anywho, I started spotting last Friday (6dpo).  It's been brown, always brown, one morning slightly red but that was probably because i was fishing around too much when checking. Embarrassed  I started on Metformin Sunday, dr's orders to start when back from vacation, (I was diagnosed pcos back in June). When I realized I was 12 dpo, and AF hadn't arrived, which is HUGELY abnormal, i rarely make it to 10/11dpo, I started my poas addiction!  Super light lines, but still there, two lines!  So i peed again, same thing.  Now, today, i'm still spotting, very little, very light brown, but it's there.  6 wondfo's later, lines are still there, a littttttle darker than yesterday, but not much. 

I have a horrible feeling it's like when I had my m/c... the spotting etc.  I'm scared.  Has anyone here had anything similar and still on this board because it was successful?  I called my dr, she had me come in today for b/w, they tested my hcg, progesterone, and did a cbc.  I go back Monday for the same thing.  I'd love any input you all have, as I have been so greatful for the wonderful women on the ttcal board, i'm sure you all are just as wonderful!  Thanks so much!

    Hi!  I am going through the same thing right now, so we can be scared together.  I am waiting on an u/s and a second blood draw.  I had a full length bleed like a period, then very very light spotting, and it has stopped as of today.

    Congrats on the bfp!

    Thank you all so much, and mlal lets keep an eye on each other and keep each other updated!  I'll know more Monday, i hope, after my results and my second round of testing.  I'm just hoping the spotting doesn't turn red... like last time. :/  I look forward to chatting with you ladies so much more hopefully! Thanks again, and congrats to you all on your healthy pregnancies!

    Congrats and welcome!

    I had spotting from 9dpo until about 13 or 14dpo (got my BFP at 10dpo). It was mostly light brown, but I had a couple swipes of red one time. It has since stopped, and I had the same type of spotting around the same time when I was pregnant with my DS, so I'm pretty confident that it was just implantation. Fingers crossed that all is well with you!

    Hello...I'm mostly a "lurker" but I wanted to say congratulations! I can relate as I had red/brown spotting about 7 dpo and had it for a few days. I've had more and even one night I gushed bright red blood at 7 weeks. I rushed to the hospital, convinced it was over but an u/s showed a hb. I've had a little more brown/pink spotting but it hasn't happened for about 3 weeks. Im now 13 weeks today and I check the hb w my doppler and it's music to my ears. Its been a rough to say the least first trimester as I worry everyday.

    I'd get your hcg blood work done. That may be reassuring. Although with my last two losses, my hcg was normal. It's so different with each body and experience. Best of luck! My thoughts and prayers go out to you!

    Thank you ladies!  I had my bw done yesterday, and go back in monday for more!  She's checking my hcg levels, progesterone, and a cbc.  She also gave me progesteron suppositories just in case, her exact words were 'it can't hurt, and we won't know if you're low until monday, so lets just do it to be safe'.  I love that my dr is proactive, and she knows how scared i am... i'm pretty sure even the lab tech could see the word fear across my forehead! :/  I'm trying to take this weekend to just relax, but of course i poas again this morning and it's still very light, BUT darker than yesterday :)  And temps are going up (.1 degree F), so that's good too.  I'm hoping and wishing everything is going to be ok, and i'll update monday when i hopefully know more!  Have a great weekend ladies!  And thank you for the t&p!!
