#1- CALL THE DOC AND ASK TO BE SEEN! They can't do anything to stop it, but at least they can put your mind at ease that all is well. They can do an ultrasound to show you they baby is growing and healthy. I was pregnant with twins and miscaried 1 at 10 1/2 weeks, leaving me on bed rest for a month.
Which brings me to #2- ASSUME THAT BED REST WILL DO YOU SOME GOOD! The doc may put you on bedrest for a week to see if it stops the spotting. Mine was MUCH! more than "bloody smears" on the TP. It was MUCH heavier than my heaviest day of menstration. Spotting DOES happen, EVEN when everythings FINE! Getting the dr's appointment will just allow you to calm down and relax. Stress isn't condusive to a healthy pregnancy! ~J
PS~ My HEALTHY son was born 12/29/04. End of the year is both excitting and unfortunate. They wait all year for their B-day and Christmas, then it's all over in less than a week. :O( But they are SO cute that first year, bieign so tiny for the other holidays! :O) AND A TAX BREAK TOO! LOL
