This just sucks! — The Bump
Pregnant after a Loss

This just sucks!

I'm really trying to remain positive and hang on as tight as I possibly can.  Last night around 7:30pm I started having some light pink spotting.  There were a few red streaks in there... but not much.  The spotting only lasted 1-2 hours.  I thought it was over but now I'm seeing a thick light brown discharge.  I don't have any severe cramping -- just something similar to a mild cramp before AF that comes and goes. 

I'm only 13dpo now so I'm not really sure if it would do any good to see my doctor?  My pregnancy test yesterday morning (12dpo) was really light.  This morning it was dark so that was comforting.  However, this spotting has me worried.  I hate PGAL brain.

  • I had some spotting around the same time when I got my bfp and I feared the worst. Also my test sticks were super light too. Hopefully its nothing. Have you had betas yet? I would go in for some, will help ease the mind a little if they come back doubling. So sorry you're going through this (((hugs)))

    My doctor doesn't usually do betas.  I'm going to call but I'm guessing I will get the ole "wait and see".

    I really appreciate all the feedback ladies.  It makes me feel so much better to hear that others experienced the same thing and have healthy, growing babies.  ((BIG HUGS))

  • I'm not far along but I had the pink spotting/bleeding the night before my positive and 3 days after. My nurse thinks it was possibly implantation. I thought it lasted too long and was days after the embryo implanted, but what to I know! My betas were doubling normal. I hope it's normal and all goes well for you. Pgal Brain is just mean.

    Thanks ladies!  It does help to hear so many positive stories. 

    I thought about implantation bleeding but I didn't think you could have that days after getting a positive HPT.  If you can, then it's definitely a possibility.

    Ugh that sucks and I hope it turns out to be nothing.

    I had spotting all through the first tri and part of the second tri, from pink to bright red and even a little brown.  I was dealing with clots in the uterus so I was put on bedrest, but everything is just fine now and I haven't seen blood in almost two months.

    Hang in there!  *hugs*

  • I had spotting early with both my term babies, my OB told me it was probably left over from implantation. If you got a dark line today I wouldn't worry too much! Stay positive :

  • I had some weird spotting early on around week 7 that lasted for about a week, same deal started pink and then was brown discharge mostly. Now I'm nearly 12 weeks in and still getting a healthy hb on doppler :) it's very scary after a loss but it happens to a lot of us without spelling doom. This early it could just be leftovers from the baby burrowing in for a long stay, especially with your tests getting darker. *hugs* hope you get some peace of mind soon.

  • I had some spotting really early on and the dr brought me in for an ultrasound. Turned out to be something about the sack not being fully fuzed yet, and some blood vessels being persnickety in the process. My little peanut is currently in the process of kicking the crap out of me, so FX it's something similar for you. Tons of positive vibes coming your way! mobile smiley
