Icky question but need help!
 
Ok, I hate to do this but I have to ..

When I went to the bathroom yesterday afternoon there was a very very light brown like resedu on the paper .. (I just went pee nothing else. I figured hey thats nothing right .. not spotting or anything I couldnt even tell if it was blood..

But today my back is achy and so is my abdomen and Im starting to get freaked out. Is this something I should be calling my doctor for? My doctor kinda sucks, she is an intern and well ... not very helpful and they always have to page her then she calls back 4 hours later ... just wondering if you guys think I should call the doc or not.

Sorry its icky but Im worried and I dont know what else to do. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/confused.gif">

I would call your doc just put your mind at ease. I hope you're okay and I am sure it is nothing, but you know it is always better to check. Let us know what the doc says!

Are you TTC or PG? If so, how far along are you?

Hey MilkNkisses,

I don't think it is anything to worry about, but maybe you should mention it to your doc and see if maybe they can reassure you it's o.k. Did you and your dh have intercourse last night or recently? Because that too can cause spotting or brown discharge I think.

I pray everything is o.k. and don't be afraid of being graphic or anything. You should see some of the posts that have been on here! LOL <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"> There is no reason to be embarrassed and we are all here to help!!

God Bless,

Milknkisses, how do you feel? It happen to me too, but we are still TTC and I was hoping it was implantiation. But I still don't know at this time - I'm a couple of days late, but I just got a negative on my HPT on Thursday night....I'm waiting a little longer to retest. Do you have cramps? I do! Let us know what is happening! Good luck! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/t_up.gif">

Ok, I just got off the phone with the nurse. She said that it was nothing to worry about as I wasn't activly bleeding.

I swear I hate this, I never thought that I would be pregnant and worried about absolutly everying that my body does .. I hate being scared!!

Milkn... I wanted to post to you... I don't want to scare you but I just miscarried at 9 weeks and there might have been a chance I wouldn't have, had my doctor brought me in, instead of telling me not to worry. I just want you to be alright... it is too late for the baby I was carrying, but not too late for you. I also presented with some brownish discharge when I wiped... this went on for about 4 days... and they told me, as they told you... if it is not blood... enough to have to change a pad once and hour, then not to worry about it... it was just hormones.

Did you ever have implantation bleeding? I have been reading about this theory that pregnancies that have this are more likely to miscarry then oncs who don't.

Anyway... I finally demanded that they bring me in for an ultrasound... and he did... and the baby wasn't developing on schedule... there was an abnormality so my body was just doing what it was supposed to do... the pregnancy was not 'viable'. The doctor said. Anyway... My doctor did say that 1 out of 5 healthy pregnancies... there is some hormonal discharge or bleeding... my intention is not to be negative or scare you. I just want you and your baby to be fine. Be safe and God bless you two.

Well, I was going along fine and dandy but then I went to the bathroom again there was a clot very small but not normal for me .. anyway I freaked ran to my phone at work and demanded to be seen by the doctor .. they gave me the 'your a first time mom' thing but .. I have an apointment at 2 tommorow!

If its nothing then its nothing and good, if its something then I have to know now.

I'm days away from being out of the 'danger zone' ... I swear my body just likes to scare me. Im sure me and the baby are fine but thank you all so much for the good thoughts you are sending my way .. its very appreciated!<p>[This message has been edited by MilkNKisses (edited 02-10-2003).]

Good girl!! I am so glad they are going to see you. Don't let them give you that 'first mom' thing. I was going to be a third time mom and they reassured me into believing I was just fine and I should have trusted my gut instinct the whole time.

I'm sure all is fine with you. Just best to hear it from the experts!!!

I am sooo glad you have an appt. You know your body and they cannot just tell you it's o.k., when your body is throwing warning signs. I pray everything is o.k.

Keep us informed, o.k.

God Bless,
