Hi everyone, after a very worrying night I think everything may be ok. I got home, called the nurses and they said that I was just to rest with my feet up and not to worry too much unless I was getting cramps or red blood. The spotting only seems to happen every third time I go to the toilet and is only ever a few brown spots or a slight smear when I wipe.
I told my husband when he got home from work because he could tell I was upset. He has been looking after me and not letting me do anything at all. Got up this morning and there weren't any marks on the pad and only a tiny bit of brown spotting when I wiped.
I have gone to work today and told my colleagues that I am not lifting a thing from now on and will be taking it easy. They have all reassured me that they went through similar things when they were pregnant so it has put my mind at rest. My mum told me she bled clots when she was pregnant with my sister and she was born just fine so think after all my past worries I was just freaking out a bit.
I am keeping a very close eye on things and have the whole weekend off now to put my feet up and relax. So far I haven't had anymore spotting since the small bit this morning so fingers crossed it was just an irritated cervix. I am quite small so I think this baby dancing a jig on my hoo-ha all week hasn't helped! The baby is still moving regularly so all's good for now.
Thank you all for your kind words and I hope that the prgnancy is boring and uneventful from now on!
