just when I started to believe

I start to have bright red spotting. It started mid-day as brown – I thought that was ok.

Then, bright red. It’s not a flow, it’s not even made it to my underwear. But it’s been red, twice, when I wipe.

I’m also having right sided “discomfort”. If I wasn’t having the spotting, I wouldn’t worry about it – I’d chalk it up to ovary pain. Add the spotting, and my head goes immediately to ectopic.

Mr. Hope wants me to go tomorrow morning for another blood draw.

I guess I’m just hoping that my cervix is irritated from the suppositories??? I know that if it’s a chromosomal problem, or another ectopic, that there’s absolutely nothing anyone can do.

  1. Ugh, no. Please everything be okay. I pray it’s just your irritated cervix.

  2. This must be agonizing. You and Mr. Hope are so strong and I know that you are doing everything possible to take care of those babies. Keep hoping and praying. As you know, there are lots of explanations – let’s pray it is the one that we want.

  3. Oh, the worry. Keep us updated….the whole of blogland will be right behind you. I hope the spotting has stopped….I think it may be fairly common (if not horrifying) in early pg. Lots of us have those little scares xxxx

  4. Thinking of you. Hope everything turns out okay.

  5. Thinking of you. Hope everything turns out okay.

  6. It’s probably just a little leftover cyst sending something down. I’m praying for you. Que sera, sera.

  7. Thinking and praying hard for you right now. If there is a way that collectively we can will those little babies to stay and for this to be something incredibly minor, then so be it.

  8. Thinking of you in hope with legs and fingers crossed.

  9. I’m chomping off my fingernails, stressed out for you. Why, oh why does this have to be so damned terrifying? It’s unfair. So. Friggin. Unfair. I’ll be praying and hoping for a happy, happy outcome.

  11. I’m holding out hope that everything will be okay. I’m praying for you.

  12. No, no, no. Stop spotting, stop. Right now! I will anxiously await the report from your doc. Please post as soon as you can. Meanwhile, I’m sending healthy baby vibes your way.

  13. Nothing witty or terribly comforting that I can say, but I am thinking of you both…

  14. Just want to say I hope it is nothing. ((HUGS))

  15. I hope it is an irritated cervix. You are right that if it is ectopic or a genetic problem there is nothing anyone can do, but please, please let it not be that!

  16. oh crap why can’t things be easy after all the hardship! i’m hoping it’s just irritation or better yet that the pain stops! still sending you lots of love and support!

  17. Oh, extreme worry. My gf just got PG after her third IVF and started bleeding… about a full pad worth of blood during the evening. It was part of the placenta peeling away and she went on bedrest. She is doing fine at this time though. (It’s been two weeks.) Stay down and relax and definitely go back in tomorrow. 😦

  18. Those numbers were just so strong, Mrs. Hope. I’m voting for irritation, or just that infuriating unexplicable bleeding that many women have in early pregnancy.

    I hope the bleeding goes away. C’mon Universe, give Mrs. Hope a break and ease her mind.

    You deserve it, babe. Thinking of you.

  19. thinking of you, Larissa. i so hope this is just an irritated cervix or something else easy to explain…i have it all crossed for you.

  20. Mrs. Hope I hope it’s nothing. IVF pregnancies are prone to bleeding, and you aren’t bleeding much. If it was me, I’d go for anotehr draw as I can’t stand the tension, but you should do whatever you need to do get through this. As you know, a few spots of blood are by no means terminal – less likely to be cervix and more likely to be disturbed womb lining as the embryo infiltrates the uterine lining.

    Hang in there.

  21. i know you have plenty of reason to fear the worst, but there are so many things that can cause “normal” bleeding in pregnancies that turn out just fine. hoping everything is okay.

  22. Mrs. Hope – I hope all is OK, let us know if you do go in today (please). Just so you know, spotting is common in early pregnancy, especially for IVF pregnancies. I so hope you’re doing OK.
