Spotting

I am 13 weeks and a day. I had a great weekend, and I was feeling good this morning. Until I got to work, made my usual beeline for the bathroom, and saw brown spotting. It wasn't much, about a dime, but I am still freaking out anyway. When I wiped there was some more of the brown residue, and an hour later I went back to the bathroom and there was more brown, liquidy stuff when I wiped.

Luckily I already have my doctor's appointment set up this afternoon. Aside from a few twinges, I haven't had any cramps. Still, when I called H to tell him about it I just about started crying. Not good. I know some light spotting/bleeding might be normal, but considering how scared I still am about my boob this is not what I needed this morning.

I was just starting to feel more confident about this pregnancy (my miscarriage worries had been replaced by breast cancer worries). We told all of our friends at a party on Friday night that we are having twins. I went maternity clothes shopping with my mom on Saturday. H and I joined Co_stco on Sunday and bought our first bulk box of diapers. I thought everything would be okay by 13 weeks.

Please let everything be okay.

Oh, Emmie, I am saying a prayer for you right now. I'm sure you know that brown means old and everything is so sensitive down there so it could be anything. I know it's hard not to worry - I'm so happy you'll be into the doctor today to put your fears to rest.

Thinking of you and looking forward to a positive update! {{hugs}}

Man, you do NOT need anything else to worry about! For what it's worth, I have several twin-mama friends who had spotting after 10 weeks, and all was okay. I am keepimg my fingers crossed for you on all fronts!!!

I'm glad that you have your appt today so you can be reassured that nothing is wrong. Spotting during pregnancy must be SO horrible to experience. I have heard same as Alli - brown spotting should give little cause for concern. Thinking of you.
