Ok so I am 12 1/2 weeks and last night I started spotting AGAIN, I spotted at 6 weeks dr said everything was fine. But at 12 1/2 weeks? I am scared to death something is wrong, it has been 2 1/2 weeks since I saw the dr and everything was ok then.

Do you have pain with your spotting? Why don't you call a nurse? That's what I do if I have a problem. They can be a lot of help! Good luck and don't stress!

No no pain at all, but I have heard horror stories where the baby dies a few days before hand and then there is a miscarriage :0(. I will call the dr, but I am so stressed now :0(

My prayers are with you! Try not to stress! I know easier said than done. I'm sure things will be fine for you. I have been having spotting and bleeding and dr. says everything is fine. My oldest sister bled with both her pregnancies and her children are both fine! Let me know how things are!

Is that you Beth? I would go in as soon as possible. I am freaking myself out with the 'missed miscarriage' thing as well. I just don't feel pregnant still. Please let me know how everything goes.

Hi Ekay, yeah it is me. . I do feel pregnant, but I dont; know this spotting is scaring me. . .I will call the dr.

Can you feel your uterus yet? I keep trying and get really discouraged because I can't. You should be able to. That was always comforting for me with my 2nd, because I could tell my uterus wasn't getting smaller. Here I go freaking out again......:-(

Ok I called and they told me that as long as it is not bright red I should be ok, so I will just kick my feet up tonight and rest . .fiance is having a poker night so I will just prop up a chair and watch!! Ok Ekay, this is going to sound stupid, but what so you mean when you ask can I feel my uterus? what is it that I am looking for?

 

ekay - February 18

Maybe I am the one that sounds stupid!! If you start at your pubic bone and feel up towards your belly, you should feel something kinda squishy but hard and then about an inch or two below your belly b___ton it should just kinda round off and stop. Like when doctors feel for your fundus (or top of uterus) when you go in for check ups. All this is externally not internally. :) You can feel it pretty much right now when you are lying on your back and it helps if you have to pee really bad. I am probably knocking my little guy around trying to feel for it. I think I started really feeling it around 11 weeks with my daughter though.

In the last 12 years I have had 2 healthy babies and 2 miscarriages and now pregnant again and scared. I asked the same questions. With my 2nd preg. I had a normal and natural period every month for 5 months. My daughter is now 10 1/2 and head of her cla__s. However what you should worry about is heavy bleeding, clots and cramping. The cramping will be like heavy menstral cramps. Do not worry if they are light, this is all normal as baby is stretching stomach for growth!!! :>) I hope I have helped you. Stephanie

so are you basically talking about the little ball type thing you can feel right above your area down there if you are pressing on the part of the stomach that has become harder?

 

Beth - February 18

Thanks Stephanie, calms my nerves a little, because I had already spotted 6 weeks ago and then a 6 week break and this so kind of scary.

 

ekay - February 18

Nah, not really, but possibly. Nevermind-maybe I am just a crazy one! :)

 

Beth - February 18

No you are not crazy, I have heard allot of people talking about that. . .but I am just out of it and don't know what it is, haa haa :0(
