So, I’m bleeding. Not a lot, but I am. This is really scary. I had some spotting around week 8; it went away pretty quickly and the ultrasound I had right afterwards showed a fetus with a heartbeat and all … so I’m trying to tell myself that’s what’s happening again, and it will all be fine. It’s not working very well. Here are the reasons it could all be fine: 1) I’m not bleeding heavily, just lightly, and I’m not having intense cramps or anything; 2) I have a fibroid, and I hear sometimes those can cause spotting with no danger to the pregnancy; 3) I have an appointment with my OB/Gyn tomorrow morning, so I should know what’s going on, good or bad, at that point; 4) Once a heartbeat has been detected, the risk of miscarriage goes down by about 90%.

These are the things I keep telling myself. It’s probably fine, it’s probably fine.

I’ll keep you posted.
