BFP with a lot of spotting

BFP with a lot of spotting

Description:
I was so relieved to get a positive test this morning... but am trying not to get too excited yet! I had a miscarriage last November that happened right around this same time in the pregnancy. I have been spotting since 5 DPO, and CD 33-37 was actual bleeding. In fact, I would have thought it was AF (complete with cramps) if it hadn't been for continuing high temps. But I think the spotting is getting lighter each day. I started taking 50mg of B6 during my last cycle to help with spotting and short LP - guess it didn't help with spotting, but I wonder if it's helping this one to stick.... Has anyone had a successful pregnancy with spotting and bleeding like this? I'll see my doctor ASAP, but is it safe to assume that things are okay as long as my temps stay high? I'm trying not to worry so much and just stay calm!!

Your chart gives me such hope! I have been a chronic spotter sometimes 6DPO through to the start of AF and sometimes just 2 days prior to AF ever since coming off BCP about 2 1/2 years ago. I too have been taking B6 for about 6 months now and have not noticed a difference with the spotting.

Congratulations!!!!! And a H&H 9 months to you!

I would get your progesterone levels checked just to make sure.  GL to you!!

Your temps look good. I'd also get your progesterone checked. I had a total of 5 days of bleeding and spotting with my daughter and everything was fine. She's one now. I did have low progesterone and the bleeding stopped when I began using NPC.

Is NPC natural progesterone cream?

Thanks for the input, everyone!  I will see about getting my progesterone checked.  The spotting has just about stopped today, and I hope that's the end of it...

hey girl, just saw this and I had 7 days straight of spotting with my BFP, and they checked my progesterone and it was low/normal so she put me on prometrium.. and the spotting has stopped!! I'm only on 100 mg orally :) I hope this is your sticky baby!
