  • Hi everyone! I'm Siobhan and I'm 20 y/o

    I only very recently found out that I'm pregnant, told by the doctor when I went in for check-up/blood test results. I'm due to go back to doctor's on monday to discuss what I need to do and arrange a booking appointment.

    As for how far along I am, I really don't know, the first day of my last period was July 31st and it finished August 4th, so possibly about 4-5 weeks? Potentially due end of April into May

    I've been getting the usual symptoms of sore nipples, tiredness, clumsiness, hungrier than usual, raised body temperature and nausea. Also recently happening is slight headaches, constant thirst (i drink a lot) and cramps.

    Then past couple days I've experienced very light pinky colour sort of bleeding which was quite minimal, then it happened again today. What is it? And is it normal? I figured that implantation bleeding would've happened couple weeks ago rather than now, so of course I've become paranoid
     


    Any advice? I'm the type that worries about everything and just want this baby to be okay!!

    thank you! xxx

  • Hi and welcome to tbc.

    I would say it could be very normal. I had a similar thing with my second pregnancy, and he's sleeping upstairs right now
     
    .

    I would call your doctor though, even if you just speak to a nurse, tell her what's going on, and see how to proceed. They may want you to be checked early on just in case. I know that's what they did for me and I felt so much better knowing that all was well.

    Welcome to TBC and congrats on your pregnancy!! I hope you get to enjoy the next months and the side effects of pregnancy are short-lived and you are feeling much better soon.

    Jump on over to the due date boards and jump in on the conversation.

  • Light pink spotting can be very normal. I'd follow up with your Dr. though. Even short lived bright red bleeding can be normal. There is just so much extra blood around that area in the first trimester. I had short lived, but an alarming amount of red blood with my first. It was just a broken capullary and stopped quickly. Gave me quite the scare, but there was nothing wrong and she is fine.

    Good luck and welcome to TBC.
