Off bedrest, nervous to be back at work — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

Off bedrest, nervous to be back at work

So over the weekend the bleeding slowed to just spotting and then yesterday I had hardly anything at all, so the doctor ok'd me to come back to work today. Once I got here and went to the bathroom, of course, there was some pink spotting on my pad. I'm nervous about being here, but I know if it gets worse I will just stay home again - it's still frustrating though, I just want it to stop for good. I just have a desk job so it's not like I'm on my feet, but of course I'm not laying down either! 

If you had unexplained bleeding/spotting, were you on bedrest and for how long? Am I ok to be back and work with spotting?

  • Are you on progesterone suppositories? I've heard those can cause spotting.

    Best of luck and I hope it clears up soon

    Nope, not on suppositories, just PIO injections...

    thanks!
