First, congratulations!! So excited for you and your SO! That's awesome and motherhood is hard but a true joy! You are blessed! Spotting is something that happens during pregnancy to many women and it is not a sign of anything wrong. Have you had sexual intercourse? I spotted regularly with that. It's just a light pink? No cramps. I would not be worried. But keep your eye on it. Breast tenderness comes and goes. It's hard to wait and not worry during that first trimester so try to keep busy. Any morning sickness? That, if a woman has it, usually starts around 6 or so weeks.
So, how is it going today??
It does. I will tell you as someone that suffered 'morning sickness' which was really all day unrelenting nausea, be glad you don't have that. I know it can be a tiny bit reassuring though. You aren't a little extra tired or maybe peeing a bit more than usual? Pregnancy signs can be subtle for some women. I consider them lucky! :>)) But I know you are worried. I'm sorry about that. You are 7 weeks. You go for your ultrasound in a week and a half! yay! I didn't get an ultrasound until 20 weeks but at my 8 week visit, I got to hear the heartbeat with a dopler. That is a great moment. :>) TRY not to worry. I know it is hard but stay busy if you can. How are the cramps? Are you still having them sometimes?
Oh, and did you track your temp before pregnancy? Probably not or you'd have mentioned that. But our body's temp goes up about 1 degree when we ovulate and it stays up until your next period. It starts to lower a bit the day before your period starts. I was trying to conceive so tracking my period. If you are pregnant, the temp never goes down! The two times my temp did not lower were my two pregnancies. So, I know it is too late to do that but if you are ever in the baby making business again, keep that in mind. :>) Hugs. It will be okay!
The spotting could of been from the exam the doctor did. Even without an exam.....spotting is more common then you think in the first and second trimester of pregnancy. I actually hemorrhaged several times with both of my babies (I had subcorionic hematomas with both pregnancies) I was really freaked out but everything was OK. Now they are 2 and 4 yrs old. Just make sure you call the doctor if you have anything happens your concerned about. As far as not having any pregnancy symptoms....count yourself pretty lucky!! I was so so sick the entire pregnancy. I couldn’t eat a thing I smelled. Eating was disgusting. Nothing helped my morning sickness besides on occasion zofran helped.
I hope the scan your having on the 8th puts your mind at ease. If your doctor doesn’t know about the spotting you were having maybe he will move it up? I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes smoothly and without any worries.
Best of luck!
Hope you are doing okay today!! hugs
