Thanks, ladies, for all the support and stories. I heard similar stories from IRL ladies this morning. And, called the clinic and heard the same. Spotting on the TP is perfectly normal. Call if it gets any worse, but not to worry at small amounts of red or pink. So, now I breathe...
I always wondered why, in the 2ww, why does AF have to feel so much like possible pregnancy symptoms. Now, I wonder the same, in reverse. Why on earth do perfectly normal pregnancy symptoms feel so much like AF?! It's madddening! We're so conditioned that blood=bad, AF=bad, cramping+blood=AF. And, now I'm supposed to just trust that cramping+blood=perfectly normal pregnancy? Pretty much. But, I'm not the first and I won't be the last, so I just have to breathe!
In twelve days, we'll see Beaker's heartbeat. And, I just have to believe that is exactly how this is going to turn out. I don't want to live these next twelve days in fear, as difficult as that may be to avoid. I wouldn't mind a symptom or two, other than the scary bleeding, to help me feel a bit more secure in that belief! But, for now, I'm just going to breathe, say my prayers and think positive thoughts for Beaker!
