Brown is the new beige

I wasn't going to update today — thought I'd give it all a rest — but I just read the comments from yesterday's post and I wanted to take a minute to say THANK YOU for all the support. I really appreciate it.

Nothing new except that the beige-y tan spotting turned definitively brown. (In case you're wondering, I'm wearing blue today. It's one of the cheery blues, somewhere between baby and sky. No sad-sacking going on.) The spotting output slows down with increased water consumption, so I'm keeping my tall glass filled. Wait, no, I guess I'm keeping it empty. Strangely, I feel waterlogged and maddeningly thirsty at the same time.

Also, I switched to softer toilet paper today because my delicates are chafed from way too many trips to the loo. Seriously, it was a problem. (Thanks for that idea, foof!)

My beta is still on for Saturday.

If you have to have spotting, brown is the way to go! It's definitely old blood. It's going to be okay.

Here via the lushery. I had brown spotting...all turned out okay for me. I bet the same will be true for you!

I'm holding on to my hope that it is just old blood. My girlfriend spotted for the first trimester and has a beautiful little girl now that is totally healthy. Hugs sweetie.
