and many woman do too.

Hard to know why you are spotting. Could be that this is your placenta taking over hormone production fully, could be that you did too much today--even if you don't feel that way, could be that you are a wee bit dehydrated.

Put your feet up or go lay down, drink a glass of water and then sip water through out the evening.

Just watch the spotting (like I need to tell you that), if it gets heavier call or head over to the hospital. and if you feel really freaked, go to the emerg to be safe. They'll do an u/s, maybe do blood tests (ask for one, see what they say; I'd ask to see what the prog is doing) and be sure to mention you had IF.

Good luck and keep us posted.

btw, my co-moderator, Blythe, spotted heavily through her whole pg. I spotted but it would calm down if I took it extra easy and stayed on top of my water.

What the nurses will tell you...if it's brown blood, that's old. Nothing to worry about. If it's fresh and red, then you should call your Dr and let them know. Even pink, you should probably call.

But in any case, if it's red, pink, brown or black, it can all still be normal and okay, but best to talk to your Dr about it anyways.

nicked something when putting in P4 (if you are taking it vaginally) and it bled a bit and now is just old stuff.

Glad you are going in tomorrow to set your heart at ease!

Hugs and good luck!

I conceived using iui, I was never using any p4. I did have a pap smear, but that was 10 days ago. Just really worried.

AND super scary. The placenta usually takes over around 8 wk, but can take longer sometimes. If you see clots, call your OB and go to L&D triage.

I was hoping it would be the same for you...

Then maybe it is that your p4 is a little low? (At least that would be an easy fix.)

I hope it's something easy like that!

I can totally understand why you are scared, please tell us how it goes!

Sending you a big hug,
