So I had a miscarriage back in december at 7wks. Doctor just confirmed my pregnancy last thursday with a blood test where hcg was 667 and ultrasound showing the sac. However ever since that day I have been spotting brown.. very lightly not even enough to get to my underwear, but it is there when I wipe. The spotting stopped yesterday, but I am terrified since last time i started brown spotting with horrible cramps and then turned into red blood, and I passed the sac on my own. I am super scared and doctor tells me that brown is ok as long as is not red, but has anyone gone through this and had a successful pregnancy?? I am so scared that i dont even want to go to the bathroom... By the way my hcg levels yesterday were 2186.
Any questions? stories? statements.. or inputs will help thank you all

Morning! I know its tmi buttt....are you opening your bowels regular? I had spotting (pink and brown) after i went to the toilet, every time with out fail. Used to really freak me out! When i had a miscarriage it was bright red and lots of it but its still scarey when you see anything on that toilet paper!
I know its not any comfort but what will be will be just be healthy, dont drink or smoke and eat healthy! Im 18 weeks pregnant and i STILL worry, last night i was worrried because i hadnt felt baby move for 2 days..shortly after i felt it wiggling lol Typical isnt it
Good luck and relax, were hear if u need us *hugs***

Hi Navaz. I got pg two weeks after my last mc and am now 8+3. I have had brown spotting for 2 weeks and so far everything seems okay. The truthful answer is, usually no one can tell you (not even doctors) why you are spotting, or tell you that it will definitely be okay, but you have to stay positive as stress only makes things worse. I've had 3 previous mc so I know how hard that can be. I have to force myself not to assume the worst! As I said, I've had it for 2 weeks and everything seems to be fine. Is it possible for you arrange weekly scans with your EPU to put your mind at rest? I've been calling them all the time and at first I worried that I was being overly-anxious but now I think it's really better to have that peace of mind, even if you're calling twice a day! Good luck. Let us know how you're getting on. *Sends sticky vibes* xx

Hi Ladies thank you so much for writing back. So spotting stopped Wednesdays night (2/27) I went to the doctor on thursday and did a intravaginal scan, I saw gestational sac, but they said I must be earlier because i was only measuring 4wks 4days, so they sent me to do blood work, hcg came back at 3600 on thursday and monday was 2100. RN did not sound too happy about it so I had to get more blood on Saturday (yesterday) this entire weekend has been devastating, for some reason im thinking that worse Thursday i have another scan, hopefully im able to see fetal pole, today im 7 weeks from lmp, which i guess im 5 weeks gestation. I get kind of confused with all the dates and what not.. I hope HCG levels increased way more. The brown spotting it was after a peepee, and it wasnt heave enough to hit my panties it was just there everytime i whiped. But thank god it went away. No im feeling great just nervous about my number. A little break down:
03/13--hcg level 20
03/21--hcg level 667
03/23--hcg level 1271
03/25-hcg level 2100
03/28--hcg level 3600
RN told me that doctor wants them to be rising at least 60% well, between 3/25-3/28 they were about 65%increase so im confused, also i read somewhere that after levels reach 1200 it takes longer to increase. I dont know what to think im worried confused and terrifieddd that something will go wrong, for my hcg not to increase or not to see a heartbeat..
Any suggestions? about hcg? or scan?

gemgems13- thank you for your post. So i went to my ultrasound last thursday (4/4) and i saw a heart beat i am sooo happy my husband and i almost started crying although, according to my last period i should be 7weeks 4 days baby is only measuring 6wk 1 day, i have to go back next thursday for another ultrasound. Doctor also stated that she was pleasantly happy due to the fact that my hcg levels were onlyat a 6000 she stated that everything looked good but not out of the woods. So i will have to go in next week. Im praying that all goes well, this baby needs to stay becayse my husband and i cant go through another miscarriage emotionally it is the worse thing ever. But im praying im staying positive, doctor even asked me to take a week off frm work, she was kind of worried about my cramps, but says it is normal due to pregnnacy. She is worried about the spotting i had pink which then turned brown, so now im just home relaxing down absolutely nothing, all for my baby

hate to tell you...but the worrying dosnt stop at first trimester lol! Soon you'll be worrying that your baby isnt moving enough, or that your bump looks smaller than it did yesterday......etc etc lol It never ends

Supersquish: I bet if it is not one thing is the other lol. I just want a healthy pregnancy and baby. To be honest i think google has been my enemy, because everything that goes on i immediatly google it and nothing but negative stuff and then i start panicking. So my doctor told me to stay away from google lol. Now i just read on the weekly changes that my baby has. The one thing that i have been worried about were cramps, almost as if i was getting a period, but doctor also said that can be normal since uterus is growing. So im just waiting until my 12 wks appt. which will be may 15th and i am extremely excited yet nervous!!!! Good luckto you!!!

So happy everything is going well for you! Who knew pregnancy could be so scary and liberating all at the same time!
Its so hard to enjoy pregnancy when youve experienced a misscarrige, i feel ive been robbed of a stress free, happy pregnancy. Ive only just started to relax (im 24 weeks tomorrow) as i feel baby moving regulaly, just you wait, its the most amazing feeling! I lay awake for hours at night just feeling baby move, dont think i will ever get enough of it!
Keep us updated, me and my hubby are routing for you xxxx

nazvaz0719 I'm so happy for you, I went through something similar and it is so stressful and worrying. I am a week behind according to my measurements - I think being stressed made me ovulate late. All the love and luck to you.
And supersquish.. I just had to write to say thank you for that post above. It resonated with me so much it actually made me cry. I feel like Ive been robbed of this beautiful happy, innocent time due to a previous miscarriage too. A close friend is sailing through her pregnancy and I find it so hard not to resent her. Terrible I know. But after reading that you are coming through the other side I have hope I will too.. So thank you! xx
