Tease *Updated*

It's official -- my body is a tease (bitch). After a quiet dinner where all 3 of us toasted with sparkling cranberry juice, DH and I watched a movie. I was planning on breaking our recent stretch of celibacy since yesterday's news had been so good. It seemed like a nice way to bring in the new year.

Then I went to the bathroom to get ready for bed. Yup, spotting (bitch). Only rose-brown, very scant, but definitely there. I'd had a little mild tightening/cramping earlier, but that had been going on periodically before. I thought that I would freak out, but I just feel defeated. I know this could be normal. Perhaps just shedding that extra sac-like thing. This really could be nothing.

But I still feel a vague tightness in my pelvis; there is still scant discharge. The worst part is I know this torment will probably go on for days. I will not know how this is going to end for awhile. So that bitch just keeps teasing me.

I'll wait before contacting the RE. No point. Too early for them to be able to tell me anything. I suppose if this goes on, I'll call to repeat the beta in a few days.

When I made my coffee the sun came out and the lawn was covered with fresh snow. Now the clouds have rolled in. It's gray and dim.

*************************UPDATE******************************************

It is still gray and cold and snowing. But the spotting seems to have stopped. Phew. Whether it was a remnant sac or old implantational blood, I don't care. So long as it doesn't come back. Thanks for all the encouragement and communal worrying.

And Lori, the movie was excellent. Of course, we love this series and have seen them all multiple times. I recommend a marathon, especially if you haven't seen the early ones in awhile. (plus we know one of the stuntmen who works these films, and we love to watch and try and guess what parts he might have done)

I hope that this is nothing more than a tease.

The waiting is awful. So sorry it isn't easier. You just get through, we're all right here for you x

Lori said...

I've bitten off all my nails!

Ummmm, how was the movie? I haven't seen it.

I'm sorry you (we) are on tenterhooks.

Ugh, that just blows. I sure hope for you that it's the second sac going and you get to keep one - it's a weird thing to hope for but you know? I just want this to work for you.

Aurelia said...

I bet it's just some implantation bleeding, like a bit leftover that is just coming out. Meanwhile that sac is fine.

And maybe chicklet is right, maybe it is the remnants of the second sac going, sad, but if one stays a hella piece of joy to be left with, right?

Remember when being called a "tease" made you feel young and flirty? Yeah...no more. I had some light spotting the other day. If it helps, I read somewhere that some light spotting can occur early in pregnancies b/c your uterus is expanding (even slight expansion can cause this). I am new to this, so I'm trying to learn right along with everyone else. Keep us posted...

I'm sorry you've had such an up and down couple of days! I really hope the spotting was nothing, though (and am so glad it's subsided). Here's to a speedy week or two and a strong heartbeat.

It sounds like normal spotting but I can imagine how stressed you must be!!!

Just remember to breathe.

XOXO

The spotting can be so stressful. Glad it is gone for now, and I hope it stays away.

SaraS-P said...

Body, tease all you want. Just don't do anything more, ok?

Ms. Planner said...

Wow, what a rollercoaster you have been during December. Glad to hear the spotting is subsiding. I am so happy to hear your news and I hope the days fly by until you next get to check in with the little sac. Yeeeeee!

Katie said...

Just remember, the dildo cam can cause spotting and mild cramping.

Praying and hoping for a good outcome. . .

Magpie said...

I've been away and just caught up - it's certainly been a roller coaster - I hope things stay good. All best to you.

Just thinking of you and hoping you are doing well.
