Saw my GP today - TMI inside (non-pregnant people might want to avoid)

Sorry to non-pregnant people...but I don't want to go on the bump too much and appreciate the offers of lovely people on here to help me with stuff.

So later in the morning I went to wee and found some spotting on my pants...dark brown and very little.  My lower bits were feeling a bit odd but not painful, except when I had my hacking cough.  I called the NHS Direct and they told me to call my surgery and get an appointment ASAP.  So I did.  I'm now on bed-rest: no dog walking/playing, no sports, no gym, no exertion of any sort.  I can go to work as I just sit there, but for teaching I have to be seated, which will be odd.  It also means that I can't play my last field hockey game which is a pain.  Oh, well.  She is also calling the early pregnancy unit at the Royal Free to get me booked in for a scan before I leave for India to be certain all is well.  So crossing fingers that this is just a normal thing (I've heard that it is) and not a potential miscarriage on its way.

  • I saw your post yesterday but it was late so I never got a chance to reply, but CONGRATS UK!!!  Your symptoms sound normal to me.  As long as you're not getting bright red blood.  I am still crossing all my fingers and toes for you though and hoping you have a smooth and easy 9 months ahead of you.

    Ditto this!

    I just went back to read your announcement. I can't believe I missed it! Huuuuge congrats and I've got my fingers crossed for you! 

  • Fingers crossed for you! I've also heard that it's normal at the implantation period. 
  • Sending lots of healthy vibes your way, hopefully it's just normal early pregnancy stuff!
  •  Fingers crossed that it's just a normal part of your healthy pregnancy!

  • All of my fingers and all of my toes are crossed.
  • Good luck Liane. I am sure that it is fine. A few days before I found out that I was pg with James I had brownish bleeding that I have always put down to implantation bleeding. But do, however, take it easy, it will be a long time until you are able to again. (Once the bump comes sleeping becomes difficult and once baby is here then sleep is almost impossible.)

  • Thanks all.  My DH will eat this up - he wants to baby me anyway so this will give him the ammo to do it.  Ah, well.  A bit of relaxation never hurt a girl.

    Aww, let me know if you need company.

  • Thinking of you and baby UK that things work out and that this is normal healthy early pregnancy symptoms.

    Sending you lots of positive thoughts!  And please, don't worry about grossing us out- the bump is way too full of crazies!

  • I had spotting all during the first trimester and was on bedrest for like 6 weeks. It sucked. They put me on progestrone and it stopped. My body wasn't producing enough of the hormone, but once the placenta took over hormone production (12ish weeks) I was completely fine without the medication.

    Fingers crossed for you that it's just the same thing.

    Yeah, we're staying with family so that's why they are okay with it...and in cities, which are very, very European.  Not as many worries in Delhi.

  • Fingers crossed it is nothing. I bled w/ both pregnancies and they never knew why or put me on any sort of pelvic rest even, though they recommended we abstain during it. I couldn't even get my GP to see me, she did book a scan at 9 weeks, though, which was not the norm. It was also with an early assessment unit at the hospital and they were really great there.

  • Nah, this wasn't too bad. And you know how I am! lol

    I'm sure you'll be fine.  Definitely let your H baby you. :D Eat it up while you can!!
