Spotting with early pregnancy

Nancy Cat - May 9

Hi, I've already had 3 m/c so I know the difference between a miscarriage and spotting, but I've just started spotting after 5 days of using these progesterone suppositories.

Has anyone had anything like this happen to them?

I'm just wondering (trying to be hopeful) if the light brown spotting is what might have been already there and is now coming out b/c it's mixing with the melting wax of the suppository. Does that sound possible?

My appt at the doc is Wednesday, so I was looking for some reassurance before then.

I'm just worried. If it is going to end in a m/c, there's nothing the doctor can do.

I had brown spotting at about eight weeks with my first pregnancy. It lasted a few days and then was gone. My daughter is now 5 years old.....How many weeks along are you, give your doctor a call. He may be able to do an u/s or HCG. It would put your mind at ease.....

Joylnn - I hope everything works out ok. My thoughts are with you both..

NANCY-CAT - I've had two days of brown discharge mixed in with the waxy leftovers of the progesterone gel. My doctor told me as long as it doesn't turn bright pink and I don't have cramping, I should be okay. I'm having my hcg levels retested on Wed. just to make sure.

I had spotting on and off during my first pregnancy, rest assured my daughter is a healthy, beautiful, fiesty 14 year old. My grandmother had regular (light) periods during her pregnancies. Just habg in there and keep believing.
