Bad news, good news

The bad news:
I am bleeding.

The good news:
I'm not cramping.
I'm still having morning sickness.
The blood is not bright red.
I bled a little bit when I was pregnant with Little A and that turned out ok.

We'll see what happens. For now I'm just trying to take it super easy and not stress out. Easier said than done I'm afraid.

Four years ago today our car was broken into.

I think that happens a lot. I bled with my son (Joey...age 9, aspie..coincidentally) I was in France, on a family vacation that my doctor said it was ok to go on as long as I didn't eat the cheese, and I started to bleed. Despite the fact that I was still throwing up all over France I thought I had lost the baby and I was devastated.

I got back the the US, unsubscribed from all my baby newsletters and made and appointment with my doctor. The doctor assured me he was fine but boy can a little bit of blood scare the dickens out of you.

Good luck, rest up!

OK, relaaaaaaaaaaaaax. Just a little spotting, nothing to worry about. Not bright red, excellent. No cramps, wonderful.

Everything is fine.

Oooh Squeeze tight. I spotted once too, and freaked out. My fingers are crossed.

I bled with both of my kids - and it even went to bright red, both times. No cramping. Turned out fine both times, but it scared the heck out of me.

According to the ultrasound tech, I've got some kind of blood pocket in my uterus (or had one, at the first sonogram) where the yolk sac hadn't fully attached yet or something. She said that sort of thing is totally common, and sometimes it makes its way out, and sometimes it doesn't. It's never gone anywhere as far as I know (that is to say, I haven't bled at all) but I know if I did start bleeding, even expecting that I might, I'd still be nervous about it.

Shorter comment: Sounds like everything's fine & there's nothing terribly unusual about a little dark blood. Nevertheless, I sympathize and would be nervous too.

Hang in there. Hopefully it is just spotting.
