    Spotting...Should I call my dr?

    Hi Girls,

    Don't know if I should be worried or not. Most of you know my story already, but for those of you who don't...I got my bfp on 6/4. Beta levels only rose for a few days and then dropped back down. Dr said I would m/c early and AF would come. AF showed on 6/15, and I was VERY crampy. I bled heavier and longer than normal, but nothing really extreme.

    Here's the thing - I was feeling crampy this morning, and when I just went to the bathroom, I noticed that I am spotting. I'm on bcp in case we can start a new IVF cycle soon, and I never spot on bcp. I don't expect AF for at least 2 more weeks. BF and I did have intercourse last night, so maybe that could be causing it? I just don't know if I should be worried or not.

    My mom told me that when she m/c, she didn't stop bleeding for weeks and had to go for a D&C. I'm wondering if part of the pg held on and needs to be removed? Should I call my dr? They close early on Fridays (noon) and I wonder if they will even be able to do anything for me before Monday. Maybe I should just wait and see how it plays out?

    Appreciate any advice...Thanks!

    Holly

    Holly

    Did you get checked up after your m/c? My dr had told me to go after 2 weeks to do an us. She checked that nothing was left inside and that everything was ok.

    If i were you i d call the dr. It is true it might be due sex last night but if there still might be some tissue inside you it s better to get it removed asap so that you won t have any setbacks when the good news arruives on weds.

    HI Holly Dolly,

    I would call your doctor, asap (I use this right, non? asap?) It may be due to intercourse with your BF, but you never know. I don't think it's cause for alarm, but we woudn't want to have cause a setback, as Amy so wisely says. Let us know, cherie, what you plan to do! And good luck on Wednesday! Today is Friday, so slack today and it will go fast... and weekend always goes by fast! Thinking about you and praying for you!

    Re: Spotting...Should I call my dr?

    Thanks Amy & Princess! I took your advice and left a message w/ my dr's office, so now just waiting for their call back.

    Amy, your comment about getting the good news on Wednesday made me smile. Glad to see you are still doing well.

    Princess, I told you to have a little faith in your English! ASAP is just short for 'as soon as possible' so you used it perfectly. You are better than you think.

    Holly

    Re: Spotting...Should I call my dr?

    Hahaha! Yes, perhaps my written english is passable, however my verbal...I still have very strong accent. When I go to other parts of canada they laugh I laugh too!

    I'm very glad you called, Holly! May I ask, how much is the spotting? When will they get back to you? Soon, non?

    Re: Spotting...Should I call my dr?

    Princess, the spotting isn't too bad...There were only a few spots on my panties, but when I went pee (TMI) the liquid in the toilet was tinged by the blood, so it's definitely there. I'm not really sure how quickly they will get back to me. Sometimes they are really quick and other times they aren't, so I guess it just depends on how their day is going. I am pretty confident that if they can't return my call before they close at noon, they will at least have my nurse call me this evening. So that will be good.

    Holly

    Re: Spotting...Should I call my dr?

    Aww, thank you Mapia!
    I am from a smaller village in Quebec. My English woudl be much better if I lived in Montreal, perhaps we will move there. I go to Toronto and surrounding cities very often, from there I learn most of my English, becuase outside of Quebec, not so so so so many people speak French. Of ocurse, they speak some, but not as much.

    Holly have they called yet??

    And have we heard anyhitng from deluka, by the way? Last I heard she was at home getting better, but still very tired.

    Mapia, how are you doing, cherie?

    Re: Spotting...Should I call my dr?

    Hey Holly, I just got home from my daily visit to the DR and saw your post. How are things going this afternoon? Did the office call you back??? I am sure all is just fine, but it does seem like a good idea to confirm for the peace of mind. Amy is right, I forsee some good news coming on Wed and it will be good to know that everything is just fine to proceed when you do get the good news! Hope everything is going okay right now. Update us when you can!

    Re: Spotting...Should I call my dr?

    Sorry girls, I have been so busy at work today!!

    My dr's office did call back, and they are going to send me for another beta to confirm that my levels are negative. The spotting is still there, but my nurse thinks it is probably just break through bleeding from the bcp. I'm gonna go for the b/w tomorrow morning, and they will call me when they get the results from the lab.

    Thanks for your concern!!

    Gotta get back to work...

    Holly

    Re: Spotting...Should I call my dr?

    Lebanon is beautiful but yes, you're right, the middle east right now, not exactly ver stable. But my husband's parents live there, I've never met them, so I have to go. I'm not very brave at all... I don't want another war to break out while I'm there!! But we will hopefully go in December, if I can get that off for work, but it shold be easy becuase nobdy here takes vacation days. And maybe during the winter, nobody wants to fight LOL. Ah oui, you must go to Jerusalem!! I am sure you must take your little one to there as well! Are you all ready to move??

    Holly I can't wait to hear about the news from doctor. I'm sure it will be fine! And nothing to worry about. I lok forward to heairng from you always, but especially after wednesday!!
