Ten but not eleven...

So, last week in my 10 week update I said something about making it to ten weeks without any complications.... I will not be making the same claim on Tuesday in my 11 week update.

Friday night when I went to the bathroom to do my PM dose of endometrin, I found some brownish blood on my panty liner. I.freaked.out. Hysterical crying began within seconds and after a swipe with the TP, I saw more brown blood. I sobbed for about 10 minutes before I pulled myself together and looked at the situation as the informed infertile that I am, instead of the emotional one.

First, it was brown. There was not any hint of red, or even pink. After wiping multiple times, it was over. When I finally had it together enough to do my endometrin, there was very little brown blood on the applicator.
Second, we knew there was a third sac in there. It was very hard to see because of its placement in relation to baby B, and the assumption was that it was a fluid filled sac and may bleed.
Third, we're already doing everything we can to ensure these babes are delivered healthy- worrying will get us nowhere. Wow, was that a rational thought? Amazing.

The only decision I made friday night was to continue taking 2 doses of endometrin per day. As of Friday, I was supposed to taper down to just a PM dose. After the blood, I decided to keep on with two doses over the weekend and call my OB on Monday to see what she thought.

I was up multiple times in the night to go to the bathroom and didn't see a speck of brown blood on any if the 3 trips to the bathroom. When I woke up for the day I did see a little more brown CM when I wiped, but absolutely nothing since then.

I am hoping and praying that was the first and the last of it...

Im sure you know all about his but brown is old blood and can be normal but believe me I know how terrifying that is. I spotted everyday of this pregnancy up until about 4 days ago and I still cringe everytime I wipe. Praying everything is fine with your two little ones!!

I'm sure everything is JUST FINE, but I completely understand your worry! I'm sorry you are having to deal with the added worry though, especially over the weekend.

I know how scary that is, so sorry you are having to deal with it. I am sure all is fine!

You must have been a nervous wreck all night. I'm glad it's brown and not red. Keeping you, and the babies, in my thoughts!

I know that fear too well....just remember anything brown and not soaking a pad is okay. Those babes are happy and wiggling :)

I would have been a complete wreak. It sounds like you held it together well and were very rational. Like the other ladies said, I think as long as it's not red blood you are okay, but I think you are smart to call your OB first thing on Monday morning.

Keeping you in my thoughts, I cannot imagine how nerve racking that was!!

Nothing I can say will make the spotting of any kind of blood less terrifying. I hope that as I write this you are being reassured by your OB, getting in to see her and your babes. I'll check back soon for an update, meanwhile thinking of you.
