Baby had a heart rate of 172 today at the doctor! Now to schedule my nuchal on Monday. I've dialed my stress down some knowing that baby seems well.

That is awesome azure! Congrats on the healthy scan!
My ten week scan is just less than 2 weeks away and it can't come fast enough. I have been spotting on and off throughout the pregnancy and hope everything is ok.

Well, I have a SCH, which caused all of my spotting and even a small red bleed at almost 6 weeks. It could be ok! Big hugs and prayers that baby is just fine.

Lp, that midwife sounds terrible, I’m glad you won’t have her for long!

Nogreater, sorry you’re under the weather, hope you can rest and recover this weekend.

azure, great strong heart rate! That must have been reassuring!

Lar, i hope the spotting turns out to be nothing and all is well. I’m with you on feeling anxious for the next scan. 10 days and counting for me.

I thought my nausea was letting up, but yesterday was rough. I vomited before bed...first time that’s happened, it was only in the morning before. Went and did all my prenatal blood work this morning and now settling in for a lazy Saturday at home.

Azure, beautiful heart rate! Iím happy youíre less stressed now. Second trimester is quickly approaching!!!

Lar, I hope all is well. Iíve had spotting too this pregnancy, which is a first, but all is well this far and as long as it doesnít turn right red I feel Iím good.

Wishn, thanks. I hope last nights vomiting episode is not indicative of coming days or weeks and was just a one time thing. A lazy Saturday sounds perfect. Itís so beautiful here today I really want to get out but I know thatís so unrealistic because I can barely keep my eyes open. I try to take the time that I feel ďupĒ to cook for my toddler and I since my husband is busy today. Then my plan is to kick back and relax for the rest of the day. Hereís to me beating this sickness in the next few days!

Thanks for the feedback. It is reassuring to hear stories where women spot and everything turns out okay. My midwife told me "spotting is very, very, very common in the first trimester" so that was good to hear. I have had spotting that looks like a peach color and spotting that looks like a brown color, and I have also had bright red. It's never enough to make a mess or need to wear a pad or anything. It is mostly when I wipe. And most of the time when I wipe it is clean, but every now and then I am getting some different colors. The bright red scared me the most, and I kept wiping and getting more and more of it. My midwife told me it could potentially be a bad thing that my spotting went from brown to red because it could show a progression, but she said since it wasn't a whole lot, it is probably okay. She said she could send me for an ultrasound if i want one, but since mine is only about 2 weeks away, i decided to wait unless bleeding picks up. so far it hasn't.... but i can't wait to see the baby and hopefully get some reassurance.

Lar- if it’s only when you wipe consider yourself lucky. I’ve been splitting off and on pink and brown and enough that I need to wear a panty liner. It is very very common to spot in early pregnancy and everything is most likely fine but I know it’s hard not to worry. Good luck with your scan in a few weeks!

Thanks Ash. This is my first pregnancy and all very new to me. I wasnt really concerned until i saw the bright red and then i was mainly concerned because i thought it was the beginning of something worse, but since it stopped i feel way better. I think i would feel nervous about the ultrasound whether i experienced spotting or not... since it is so early in the pregnancy and it is the moment of truth about whether everything is on track. I also have a thyroid condition, which can increase chances for miscarriage and my thyroid levels got out of wack recently, but luckily i caught it and my dosage of medication was changed a week later. I know plenty of people have healthy pregnancies with thyroid conditions... i wish i could stop worrying so much :/ thanks for listening and letting me vent my concerns.

Lar, Iím happy the spotting, especially red has stopped. I have hoshimotos and hypothyroidism and Iím ashamed to say I havenít had my levels checked properly this pregnancy. I know thatís awful but between sickness and other factors I havenít made it to the lab for testing. But Iím hoping to fix that this week. However, my last pregnancy, which ended at the beginning of the year I was told my dosage was too high and pushing me into hypo so Iím hoping everything is fine. I havenít had any symptoms that my levels have dropped, but I know they need to be properly checked. Good for you for catching yours and having your medicine adjusted.
