Updates: nurse called me back

Well, I'm continuing to spot this AM, mostly brown with some pink tinged in there. I'm downing a lot of water, so I'm going frequently. I'm still having some bad cramps, but wonder if the chili I ate for dinner -which had a lot of tomatoes and spicy but not alot of beans- could be causing the cramps? Ugg. This sucks.
The nurse said not to worry unless the spotting goes way into period like flow (heavy) and if the pain turns into severe onset of intense pain in my abdomen area. She said that might be an indicator of an ectopic pregnancy. I'm hoping that little Soup baby #2 is healthy and giving me a run for my money because he/she is making herself comfy.

To make matters more fun, Keifer is home sick today with CJ. He stayed home with her because she is still rattling in her chest, coughing like a fiend, and is going around telling us she needs to blow her nose by blowing it out super loud wherever she goes. She is a hoot. The steroids she's on are making her all jacked up and crying at the drop of a hat.
When I called to check on her, I told her "love you" and she said "love you" in her little voice back to me. Ahhh.

Visiting from L&F.

I have had lots of spotting - 5 episodes so far and each time everything has stopped on its own and gone away. I know its hard to delineate spotting from the normal rumblings and feelings in your expanding tummy.

My doctor thinks its from standing too much, and just recommends that I sit down more when I get the brown gunk.

That doesn't mean I don't still freak out, but thought it might bring you some peace.

Wishing you all the best!

Scary. Sending you and baby(ies) lots of positive, relaxing thoughts. I'm sure they're just getting comfortable in there.

Remember spotting is so common in IVF pregnancies. I'm sorry that you have to worry.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Hope that the spotting is nothing and that your little souplet(s) are doing well.
