I'm still having tiny spots here and there and have a bit of discomfort too I am wondering though, if that could be from the u/s? Had it the day before yesterday and because I hadn't drank enough water, the u/s tech pushed REALLY hard to get bub on screen- it was quite uncomfortable and hurt but she assured me that was ok? Do you think this could explain it or am I facing the worst case scenario?

I know its really hard not to stress and if you are worried you should probably call your GP or OB, but I don't think you should be too concerned about 'worst case scenario'. Its *probably* just normal spotting still, and the discomfort could be anything from normal niggles and pains from pregnancy (unassociated with the spotting) or from the pressure of the scan, or from the constipation etc.
Like PP said, for *me* spotting, gushing, clotting and crapming is *normal* for MY pregnancies, I expected and wasn't surpised at all when I started bleeding with my DD pregnancy at 6 weeks. But everyone and every pregnancy is different and its a rare few who don't have some form of spotting or discomfort.
If it would put your mind at ease you should see your GP who may book a scan just to check bub
Irinko - you should see your GP for a referral to U/S if you are concerned. I wouldn't suggest go to Emergency because you will probably have to wait for AGES because spotting is not considered an emergency so they will leave you waiting while they see to all the other ppl needing assistance more. You could also call the 1300 HEALTH or whatever your number is depending on your state and they will advise you over the phone as to what the best thing to do it (in QLD you speak to actual nurses which is very helpful. I think there is also a specific pregnancy hotline but not sure if that is nationwide or just QLD.)
for both of you.

Thanks for all your advice and reassurance ladies
Irinko- you CAN go to hosp- I did. Emergency has to triage you and fastrack you for any bleeding when preg now due to bad press from ladies miscarrying in waiting rooms and public toilets (info received from RN's at Bankstown and Sutherland Hospys)

wow - thank you for the info!
Sutherland is the closest to me, i'll see today and probably will go there later today, or to the RPA tomorrow as I'll be near there and there is maternity ward there.

Well, just think I must to write here and urge others.
I went to the emergency, they did blood test and U/s and it turns I'm not pregnant any more
I didn't notice anything uncomfortable all over this 8 weeks - no pain, no cramps - nothing but those tiny brown spots for couple of weeks...
Will not try to describe my feelings, and just hope I'll be back here soon with good news again!
What I've learned - if I have a gut feeling about something's going wrong - better go and check even if there is no any serious reasons at all.
At least I could get that at early stage

I'm still spotting 1-2 times a day when wiping, no pain but still having bad ms and sore boobs so hoping that means all is ok.
