Hi everyone 🙂
8 weeks 4 days here. Tuesday night I used the restroom and when I wiped there was bright red blood. Not much, but enough to make me lose my mind. I immediately called the doctor and she said as long as I wasn’t soaking through a pad I’m most likely fine and the blood was from straining to use the restroom. She told me to call the next day to be seen.
I went in yesterday and the doctor said my exam looked great. Cervix was firm, long, and closed and there was no blood or traces or blood in my vagina. He was confident that the bleeding was a one-off caused by straining. He did order bloodwork to check my progesterone levels.
I called today and they said my progesterone is at 15.4 which the nurse said is good but they would double check with the doctor and get back to me. This is my first pregnancy so of course I’m a nervous wreck. Please relieve my fears/commiserate/provide anecdotal evidence that I’m being nervous for no reason!
