17 weeks

And I'm spotting.

Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.

Of course I ran right for my doppler and could find Nugget's heartbeat right away. But I'm still freaking out. The spotting was brown, but I also have cramps and the spotting was fluctuating between light and heavy.

And things were going so well. Dammit.

I'm going to call my peri tomorrow just to get everything in my records. I'll tell them I found the heartbeat and hopefully they'll then tell me that means there is nothing to worry about.

How ironic...Nugget is the size of an onion now and just like an onion, my eyes are all teary today.

Keep your fingers crossed for us.

I'm not going to try & blow sunshine up your butt, so know that you're in my thoughts and prayers. Everything will be okay. It has to be.

Maria,
I echo Kristin's comments. It has to be okay. I will say an extra prayer.

Ugh. Spotting sucks. But it is great that you can still hear that little heartbeat. Hopefully your Dr. can offer you some reassurance when you call tomorrow.

Being able to find the heartbeat is a good thing. A very good thing. I truly hope the spotting is absolutely nothing and that the doctor offers nothing but reassurance. Joining Newt in the breath-holding.
