This is my second pregnancy, the first ending in miscarriage and I’m absolutely terrified the same thing will happen again. I’m now 5 weeks along and I began spotting old brown stuff a few days ago. Of course I nearly flipped my lid but after doing lots of research I keep seeing over and over again brown blood is okay but if it starts to turn pink or red then there is cause for concern. Today there was more brown spotting but this time there was a pinkish tinge to it so now of course I’m panicking again.
My question to you is for us IVF ladies who are fully supplementing our progesterone, will we have spotting and bleeding prior to miscarriage the same as those who ovulate? Of course we don’t experience the drop in progesterone that signals the endometrium to begin shedding, so that is why I’m wondering. When I had my miscarriage it was a “missed miscarriage” and was caught by ultrasound weeks later.
