Spotting Returns (9wk 2d)

Unfortunately, my spotting returned around bedtime last night.

Still brown, but definitely the most I've seen. Still just on the tp and not in the panties.

This is my third spotting incident, and I guess since the last one was so long ago (sometime during week 6) I thought I was over this. Nurse H reassured me the first time that brown is old. So, I'm not panicking. I'll just be living in my bed this weekend. Which is probably what I would have done anyway.

But just because I'm not panicking does not mean I'm not wiping every hour and hyper conscious of every twinge in my belly to ascertain whether or not its the beginning of a cramp.

And I've had spotting twice before, and had sonograms after both incidents with healthy beating hearts. So, I know spotting does not necessarily equal gloom and doom. But it concerns me. It makes me worry.

If its not a goiter, its the spotting. Fearing for the life of the twins is hard on the psyche. It's kind of a full time job. So, hopefully a day of bed rest will make the spotting go away.

Otherwise, I have no news. Work has been good, not too busy or stressful. Life at home has been boring. I come home. I eat something bland. I lay in bed and watch t.v. I go to sleep. We're still waiting for our cards from our first aid class last Friday so that we can have our agency send our app in for our foster care license to the state. DH has his health screening / TB test later this week. And we should be ready to roll. Maybe by the time the paperwork goes through I'll feel up to doing more than eating and sleeping.

Ok, must go force myself to potty so I have an excuse to check the spotting. Wish me luck!

Stay off your feet! I have been making a lot of trips to the bathroom, too. The pregnancy still seems too good to be true. Everytime I go to the bathroom, I analyze the TP just to make sure the joke isn't on me.

I hope your OLD spotting dries up soon!

Hey thanks for stopping by! First I want to say I hope the spotting ends and you don't have to worry about it anymore.

Thanks for reminding me that a poor DH is better than a no DH at all. I think it was just a mood the rest of the day I was thinking rationally. We bought the used car, and I am totally fine with it.

I am so excited for you!
