bad news, then good news! — The Bump
TTC after 35

bad news, then good news!

This morning I was having some spotting, so I completely freaked out.  I got to work, and saw more spotting, so I called for a sub, and went straight to the doctor.  Luckily they were really nice, and they did a blood test and ultrasound.  They said that the spotting was really normal, and not to worry.  Just to be on the safe side, I'm staying home today for some R&R.

The good news is that I'm having twins!!  They saw two yolk sacks.  Since I'm only in my 5th week, I have to go back in next week for another ultrasound to see if we can see heartbeats.  I'm so excited!!

  • That is awesome! Congrats!  I have had the on-and-off spotting since around that time.  It's light, watery pink and shows up on the toilet paper, not really in my underwear.  The nurse said it was common because the babies were establishing blood lines with you and some leaks out!
  • Congratulations on your twins!  Now take it easy - you need to rest up!

    that is wonderful, congrats!!
  • I like the good news portion!  Sucks that you are spotting.  That always is a scary thing.  Good luck!
  • Oh Saver that is awesome news (not the spotting part)!  Congratulations. FWIW I spotted with my DD early on and as you can see in the picture she is healthy and happy.  My Dr told me it was completely normal.  I of course (because it took me so long to get one in there) was freaking out!!!  GL next week.

  • Congratulations! I'm glad to hear that everything was ok and that you got even better news at the doctor. Rest up, and if I understood correctly from your post, you are a teacher, so at least you will be able to rest in several weeks once school is out.
  • Congrats to you.

    Thrilled for you....and glad you could get some R&R today. Keep us posted!

  • OMG!! Congratulations!  Sorry about the spotting though.  Always scary. 
    I give up trying to get a ticker.  I have a DD that is 2.5 years old and is awesome.  Maybe I'll add a quote to distinguish myself.  Hmmm.  How about...
