I thought pregnancy meant no more maxi pads...

Yes, ladies, that's right. More spotting--brown only, in case you were wondering. It started late Thursday night and continued for all of Friday. Luckily it's all gone today and when I spoke with my OB/Gyn on Friday afternoon, she said that because of the blood clot they found in my uterus via ultrasound last Tuesday, having brown spotting is to be expected. She also said that since I'm not cramping, it's not red blood and it's really just spotting, not bleeding, I don't need to worry and just make sure to mention it at my appointment on Wednesday. They may do another ultrasound at that point just to make sure that the clot is resolving itself properly, but it's not something to worry about.

In the mean time, I'm going to continue with the pads so I don't ruin every single pair of underwear I own...hmph.

I really wished they would find better words that "There is nothing to worry about" ... Like "Feel free to worry your brains out because we know it's impossible not too".

Ugh, Fingers crossed and praying everything is okay.

Thank you for all the reassuring words. You are too good to little old paranoid me!

I did resort to taking my pre-natal yesterday morning, and felt gloriously miserable all day. And napped quite a bit. This morning, I feel horrible again today WITHOUT the vitamin, and when telling my husband about it, raised my first triumphantly and exclaimed, "Yes!" Luckily, he finds me amusing.

I know everything you said is true, but somehow it felt better to have you remind me of all those things. Thank you for your support, and good luck with the pads.
