5 weeks pregnant and light pink spotting…

This morning when I woke up I noticed I was having some very light, faint pink spotting. We are talking clearish light pink. Last night I did notice some minor abdominal aches and cramps while I was making dinner.

I don’t really know what this means or if it is the beginnings of a miscarriage, I probably spoke too soon with my last post huh? I am pretty exhausted and have been curling up on the futon all morning resting and worrying. It is too late to be implantation spotting. I could be passing another cyst but I am not sure if it is possible while pregnant.

Everything we read talks about how many early miscarriages are usually attributed to chromosomal defects and that they often cannot be stopped. So I am just waiting it out on the futon, besides we don’t have a doctor or insurance coverage right now anyway.

Part of me wants to run around and keep busy so that I am not worrying. I vacuumed the house this morning until the vacuum beater belt broke. The other part of me just wants to crawl in to a hole and die. Now I am back on the futon resting and will try to relax for the rest of the day if I can stand it.

Hopefully the spotting does not turn in to full on bleeding and it stops. I’ll keep you posted as things progress.

  1. Oh sweets, I am so sorry. Hang in there. Hopefully it is just nothing. If the bleeding increases or becomes more bright red, you may want to see a doctor. But please take it easy today and rest up. *hugs*

    Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

  2. I’m praying for you and sending good energy your way. I understand the need to keep busy and keep your mind off of it but don’t do anything strenuous.

  3. Oh, darlin, that is awful for you. The best way to relax is to do LaMaze breathing. It calms your mind, body, and emotions. It does not bring on labour, so don’t freak, it is the breathing that women use to get through labour. I use it to achieve an altered state, and to heal pain.
    Try it, please. Take care of you.

  4. Rest, rest and more rest. I had my “period” when I was pregnant with aidan for the first 3 months, thats why I didnt know I was pregnant till I was 17 weeks along. I wish I could give more advise than that. You and N will be in my thought and chants tonight. I love you honey.

  5. YES… what everybody else has said AND does your city/town have a free nurse hotline? We have something called Ask-A-Nurse where you can call any time of day or night and get a registered nurse who’ll run your symptoms through a database and give you advice and what the most likely reason is.

    Rest. Rest. Rest.

    Keep us posted!
