    Default 5 weeks pgnt and spotting.

    Hi ladies, I'm 5 weeks pregnant and this morning I've woke withe watery brown spotting. I'm pretty sure this is not a good sign but was wondering if anyone else has had similar and gone on to give birth?

    I stopped the crinone5 days ago and wondered if perhaps it was due to the drop in progesterone?
    This is my last attempt if this little bean does not make it I'm closing the book on trying to get pregnant.

    Dextersmum - I understand the fear. I would advise you ring your clinic and request a BT to check progesterone levels. If they've dropped you can go on pessaries or back on crinone to boost them up. If a nurse tries to brush you off with this, demand that your FS call you.

    Good luck!

    I don't really belong in here, but wanted to say that I had spotting with both of my pregnancies (with DD at 5 weeks and at around 8/9 weeks with this bubs) and DD is now almost 2, and I'm currently 25 weeks pregnant with DD2.

    Spotting and/or bleeding is really common in early pregnancy, though I can't comment on your progesterone as I haven't been through that side of things.

    I hope all is good and it's just 'one of those things'.

    Dextersmum spotting that is brown is very common in early pregnancy. I agree with the other ladies and get your progesterone checked. I would also question your FS as to why s/he has you coming off the progesterone so soon I was on crinone for 12 weeks, even with super high levels of progesterone. I know this is such a frightening time. Who would of thought once you finally get you long awaited BFP the real crazy worry begins !!! I have everything for you knowing that all will be more than a fantastic outcome

    Thanks ladies. The spotting seems to have stopped now except a tiny smudge on my liner today. Ive had a few niggles which are familiar from when I had my miscarriage in January but trying not to read too much into them.

    The nurse wants me to have a bT today and on monday to check levels. I will ask the dr about the progesterone levels while there. The nurse did not seem to think it was a problem. I am wondering if the spotting was my body trying to flush whats left of the crinone?

    bubsmcg- im not sure about the progesterone. i do know its part of the the normal protocol hat I was on to stop after 2 weeks of support. I guess it depends on the reasons for IvF??

    At my clinic they stop progesterone after the 2 weeks if progesterone levels have taken off. If they're low, they keep you on it. However, take what the nurses say with a grain of salt!! I was spotting & insisted on an early BT. The stupid nurse said to me, "Oh, it wouldn't be anything to do with progesterone - nobody ever has to take more than the 2 a day for the 2 weeks". HA! Well, it WAS that I had low progesterone actually & it turned to bleeding. Despite what she said, I increased the pessaries anyway & then when I got the call with results, it was high hcg but low progesterone & the instruction from FS was to increase the progesterone pessaries. Funny that. Good luck dextersmum!

    Hi

    I have also had brown and even light pink spotting on and off since week 7. I am now just over 12 weeks and still get it every three to four days in very small amounts. I've had scans and everything is fine with baby so it's just one of those things. My fs will always scan me if I'm worried for peace of mind.

    GL
