Hope so.. I guess I'll see what happens in the morning. No spotting when I just checked then..was post intercourse so might just be cervical..

How you feeling loulou? It may have been from DTD last night everything is swollen so agitated easily.
I have been on progesterone pessaries since just after ovulation so I have spotted every colour u can think of because it agitates the cervix. Red, pink occasionally but almost every other day brown. Still scarey even when u think you know where it's coming from.

I feel ok.the cramping is very mild and I think I'm only noticing it because of the spotting. The spotting it's only there when I wipe. Brown and pink with a touch of red..

It's hard to know with the symptoms as everything you would expect for menstruation seems to be the same for pregnancy.
I've been having more cramping & started getting lower back pain in the last few days. I did a little bit of research & found it has to do with the uterus growing.
Obviously the spotting is something to keep an eye on & talk with the doc about, but I have also seen reports that it does happen to other quite often. It's about knowing what's normal for you.

I'm having lots of trouble with nausea too. Constant food is how I'm tackling it at the moment.

I'm a bit suspicious because my nausea has gone today.. Was having to eat constant food the last couple of days

Loulou can you POAS tomorrow in the AM see if it's darker or a digital and see what the weeks say? That might give you a little reassurance?

I think I'm almost 100 percent miscarrying now.. Bleeding is increasing as is the cramping..breasts not sore anymore and zero nausea. Went to the gp but there's not a lot that can be done anyway. I don't think it's an ectopic so I'll just wait. Good luck everyone else!!

How is everyone going with morning sickness

#23 AshloBeans

Posted 25 December 2016 - 08:01 AM

I haven't had any yet. Makes me a bit nervous actually because it was terrible the first time round. Can't wait for my ultrasound on Thursday!

Merry Christmas!! Hope everyone is having a wonderful day :)

@urbanlenny I've had fairly average nausea, no vomiting yet but it's been close. Mine started as motion sickness a fouple weeks ago & has begun stretching out over the day. I keep dry biscuits at my desk & fruit to keep it at bay.

I've only been able to stomach toast and water for the last week, vomiting several times a day. By far the worst MS I have ever had! I have my scan on Thursday, too!
