so thats means now you are at 7th week? you went scanning at which week?
my gynae certify me as 4 to 5th week last week. so this week i should be 5th or 6th weeks..
my spotting is gone! now i have the so-call normal discharge.. feeling quite empty also and get 'depressed easily and also low morale from work... dont know whether you all will have such sysptom or not ..
I kinda agree that we all worry too much, including myself. hahaha..but its kinda hard to console oneself that everything is ok...like for instance, i usually visit my gynae every one week interval..then now, he scheduled me to two weeks..its feel really uncomfortable missing one week of scanning.. hahaha..
Hi mummies, i m new here, and i m in my 6th wk now.I have spotting bout 3 wks ago too. My gynae gav me a injection. I was still quite worried. When i have my lst child, eveythin is ok. I was told to rest more but my little gal need my attention al e time... tired...
When you all say your gynae encourage rest when discover spotting, is it bed rest or just sit down is good enough?
I know must reduce standing and physical activity as much as possible, but Im finding it difficult due to nature of work, to get MC and more bed rest.
just now around 4pm...i went to toilet and aftr wiping i saw a light red colour on the toilet paper..i was stunned and worried as this is the 1st time i had tis..in my 1st trimester...the last time when i pregnant with my son...i didnt had tis spotting at all...
and now im worried.....going to KK 24hrs clinic....and im now in my 6th wk....i hope everything will be ok...
btw is it normal to have spotting...

It's normal to have spotting...though it doesnt happens to everyone...you just have to get plenty of rest...Bed rest ...And dont't walk around too often...When i had my 1st child, i often have bleeding...And was admitted to the hospital a couple of times. Hence doc gave me hormones pills, injections and long term mc (hospitalisation leave) till i deliver. Meaning i had to have full bed rest (only allowed to go toilet). My co was kind enuff though to give me 2 mths no pay leave after my hospitalisation leave was fully utilised. I was freaking out during my 1st preganancy...But now 2nd one all is well..Only spotting in the 1st trimester. So dont't worry about it. Just make sure to get more rest and stay in bed if you can.
after that dae i went to see gynae at KK 24hrs clinic...all was fine...i was advised to rest more....BUT today i had another spotting but tis time i saw like a meat but was very2 small...i even touch it.....im scared....my hubby asked me to go KK again....to have a check.....
hope everything will be alright......
Hi, I just found out I was preggy this Wed and quickly went to see a gynae the next day coz I have been spotting for the past 1 week plus. I was given the hormone medicine but I still can't help feeling very worried. My uterus was facing backward after scanning was done but doctor say it's normal just that I'm the 20% woman have this problem but nver say is no good. I'm so worried...anyone came across such problems heard from your surrounding people?
Hi, actually I've experienced spottings as well just 3mths back in March, i was in my 9wks of pregnancy.
Its brown in color and normally for me if that happens is when my menses are coming.
I thought it was normal as it was my 1st pregnancy but then 2days later when I went to singapore general hospital, there's no more heartbeat for my baby.
Its really a shock for me especially although only 9wks in me, i felt something missing in me.
So just a piece of advise, spottings are not normal, its best to consult your gynae or go to AE immediately or 24hrs women's clinic @ Kandang Kerbau Hospital.
For now any abnormalities that I find strange in me when I'm pregnant even for the slightest symptoms, I will immediately go consult gynae.
Well said Ardz...!!! If ever in doubt,listen to your intuition and go consult your gynae..Even if you think that there is nothing to worry about,getting just that tiny bit of assurance is definitely comforting.
For my first 2 pregnancies,i had spotting for more than 3 days.After that i had like my normal menses bleeding..I lost both pregnancies at just 5 weeks..So now with my third try,i have safely reached my second trimester.But eversince the first day i found out that im pregnant,i wear pantyliners every single day.So that i could monitor for even the tiniest pink dot..!!! So far,no spotting.Only a lot of discharge so wearing a pantyliner helps and keeps me comfortable.
This happened to me when I was almost to my 12 weeks. I realised i was bleeding when I went to the toilet. Being finally pregnant after 10 years of marriage, being my first pregnancy and given the fact i was alone at home, I was terrified but I managed to keep calm and proceed to call my hubby then took a cab down to KK myself.
When I was waiting for the doctor, I kept saying to myself aloud, "Please be safe baby, dont't leave mummy" but still I managed to keep my calm and not cry.
Until it was my turn, I was so nervous when the doctor said, "let's scan the baby'. The doctor started to scan and I asked how's the baby. All the while i was able to keep calm and not cry, but until the doctor replied,"the baby's fine, no worries" I couldn't hold any longer, I break down and cried, it was the tears of relief!
It was impossible to scan when I was crying coz the baby kept moving but I couldnt stop crying. Finally the doctor said, "if you continued to cry, your baby also cry", now that stopped me immediately.
I was given hormones jab and told to intake double dosage of dydrogesterone, also bed rest. After that, on and off bleeding but lesser and it took around a week to stop.
Dont' wait, dont' hesitate. Take immediate action to call/see your gynae if you experienced any unusual symptons.

So after that do you still encounter any bleeding...
the 1st time i had spotting..i called my hubby..though it was a slight spotting it do make me worried...my 1st pregnancy i do not encounter spotting or morning sickness but tis time is tottally different...after i told hubby i went to the toilet and cried...otw to KK...i keep praying...that nothing will happen to my baby...when i saw the doc i bombared her with sooo many question...until she said everyting is fine... i feel relieved....
Thks izanyzam. Actually I am still sad with what has happen but of course sometimes these are all fated.
Now slightly settling down & now I'm 8wks pregnant & I'm putting "super extra" careful coz this is a life we are talking about.
But those having spotting be it reddish or brownish or pinkish even just a little, better go and chk up so that something can done to help the baby or to have an assurance that the baby is ok..
i agree w/ ArDz, my baby left me at it 12wk. same, no heartbeat, i broke down n cry. i was given jet in my early wk, but still. is reali not normal, so all mummies, pls c your gynae.
