hi everybody and lou- i really relate to your struggle right now, as i think my m/c really scarred me in some deep way that is still there.. it's weird for me to say- as since that m/c, i've had our son.. so i woulda thought i'd be more optimistic/less fearful right now.. but i'm not.
so i had 2 major bleeds at 9 wks with my son- bright red blood.. then the rainbow of red's and browns spotting til wk 13... and in this pregnancy, 2 smaller bleeds at wk 6, and still spotting off and on, but mostly browns.. SOOOO... i have a lot of data on this subject. (as i'm sure you do too actually)
on my last u/s with my RE, he talked about how many women come into the clinic, freaked out they're m/c'ing due to the amount of bleeding... he said "it's amazing how much a women can bleed and the pregnancy is just fine"...
my OBGYN said the same thing recently, and he always reminds me that implantation bleeding actually goes on for a few weeks- there's the initial implantation that can cause bleeding, but then the embie implants deeper and deeper, and can cause small amounts of blood..
i don't know if you find any reassurance in details like that.. and aside of that, my heart is with you right now... this is sooo hard. i've felt pretty healthy the last couple days which freaks me out. i'm so glad i'm going back to work tomorrow so that i can be more distracted..
big hugs to you and everyone else out there struggling in this u/s, 12wk wait.. it's awful!!!
