Fucking spotting again. May be losing my mind.

Sounds like my cervix was irritated by the dildo-like suppositories. Apparently this is normal.

My mind may very well be gone.

  1. Oh, Becky. I’m sorry.

    (This is probably not helpful, but I have a friend who spotted through her whole first trimester (if not the pg) and went into labor on her due date to a healthy 10 lb baby.)

    Is it getting worse, or just not stopping? Thinking of you.

  2. Ah fuck. Hope your bits get themselves sorted out and ENOUGH WITH THE SPOTTING ALREADY.

    (re: the above comment, I spotted through my whole first trimester, including one scary incident at 10 weeks with a toilet full of blood, and that freakshow resulted in the demon child eating day-old cheese scraps off my floor, so, you know, take what comfort you will from that.)

  3. You poor thing it sound like you have a long road ahead of you. Do you think that this is telling what toddler years with this one will be like? 🙂

  4. bollocks. we were always told to stick the suppositories elsewhere where there was no chance of irritating the cervix. hope it stops soon.

  5. I’ll take up the butt Bob for a hundred…can’t you stick em in the rear door and get the same effect? I am no expert here but I think I’ve heard/read that somewhere.
    I know I was told after every internal exam/u/s that I could expect spotting from the irritation, not that that makes it any easier on the eyes or brain when it comes out. I’m all for calling the doc and making em check, peace of mind, even if only fleeting, is worth it.

  6. Dude. Breathe.

    You haven’t lost your mind, it’s off vacationing with mine in the Caribbean, cavorting with cabana boys without a care in the world. Bastards left us behind, and I say we get them back with lots and lots of…oh, wait, drugs are out…umm…trashy romance novels?? Chocolate??

    Tell your Fear I am coming up their to kick its ever loving ass if it doesn’t back the feck off. I’m a touch angry and more than the usual dose of crazy just now, and I’ll do it. Umm…once I sell a kidney to pay for fuel, find a sitter (because one doesn’t bring an Evil Genius along on ass-kicking trips…it just isn’t DONE, darling!), and figure out where “up there” is from “down here”. But then, I will totally come up there. With my entire Janet Evanovich library and fudge brownies.

    Shade and Sweetwater,
    K, who really would come crash the party of you wanted, but meanwhile is thinking her most soothing, calming, sanity inducing (hah!) thoughts for you

  7. Also, I meant “up there”, not “up their”, but the Evil Genius was trying to steal the brownies and I didn’t edit. My excuse and I’m sticking to it.

    Shade and Sweetwater,
    K, (edit free since 1984)

  8. Yeah, I’m thinking I might be trying to find somewhere else to stick those puppies. And call for an u/s — surely your insurance company owes you, right?

  9. dude, putting the suppositories up the “back door” may not seem like fun, but perhaps it will cut out irritation they are saying you are having…

    just a thought. and get an u/s for sanity, while you are at it!

  10. Are you still nauseous? Because that would be a very good sign.
    I remember checking for spotting up until it was time to check to see if I was having any bloody show, meaning that labor was to begin soon.
    Pregnancy is a time of vast anxieties. Vast.
    I had a friend who got shots for low-levels of progesterone. Weekly or daily? I can’t remember. This was quite a while ago so maybe they don’t do that anymore, but it’s worth asking about. You could do them yourself.

  11. Oh girl, This is such a difficult time, the not knowing. I have been there, too many times. I am sorry you are having to deal with this, but I hope it turns out in a beautiful way.

    Keep us posted, please. Praying for you.

  12. I hope everything’s okay with you. Haven’t heard from you in four days (FOUR DAYS! I checked my Google Reader and went back a couple months and you haven’t ever gone four days without posting (in the past few months)!) and I’m worried. I’ll keep you in my thoughts and check my Google Reader incesssantly for postings from you.
