The Brown Spot

July 13, 2009

I went to the bathroom and there is a brown spot on my underwear. I wiped and there was no blood. Just that brown spot. My doctor’s appointment is on Thursday. Hopefully its just one of those things. I’m not panicking or anything right now but two thoughts come to mind (1) It’s going to be a long nine months and (2) I really hope I make it to nine months.



  1. Did your doc agree to write in the prescription for you?

    My sister had spotting throughout the first trimester with her kids & they were all born healthy & full term.

    I know it must seem endless looking ahead. Just breathe, & try to take one day at a time.

    I’m praying for you sweetie!

    Much love,

  2. It really is going to be a long nine months. It’s ok to over-analyze. Of course you will. Hopefully each doc appt, blood test, and sonogram will help. Let us know how your check-up on Baby Bug goes. 🙂

  3. I’ve been reading a lot of IF blogs lately where newly pregnant women have been experiencing spotting (some have even been experiencing full on flowing blood)…and if it makes you feel any better, all of them are still pregnant, and the baby is fine. =)

    I know you’re still probably quite concerned, but just keep trying to remind yourself that some spotting is normal and ok.

    Thanking of you…

    – Meg

  4. Breathe… It will be a long nine months, but at the end you won’t care that the road was bumpy as long as you to where you wanted to go.

    Also, I think you are perfectly justified to have a full on hissy and make that doctor see you tomorrow. We infertiles with less than perfect histories deserve to be catered to and coddled by our RE’s.

  5. Baraka yes, she did. It took a whle for my pharmacy to get it but I finally have it and will begin using it. Thanks for sharing your sister’s story. God willing all will be well.

    Stacey, thanks I will definitely update come Thurs~!

    Meg it *does* make me feel better. Thanks so much for comforting words *hugs*

    Arminta, you are right. When in the moment, as you surely know, the bumps hurt hard though! I wish I could hissy fit with my doctor. Sadly I chose to stick with my OBGYN due to $$ reasons and so unlike an RE I’m just not high on her priority list. Sometimnes I feel like a kid in an overcrowded classroom, or a kid to a momma with too many in her brood. To get heard or get attention I have to jump up and down and say “mememememe!” oh well. She is good, its just hard to get seen. This appointment was almost pushed to mid August until I threw a hissy fit!

  6. I’m thinking of you, I know how it feels to see a spot and wonder. Praying and wishing and hoping that Thursday will put your mind at ease, if only for a little while.
