MRS-K:  Aww, yeah, I can see how the spotting might be a slight cause for concern, but I think honestly you guys are fine!  I wouldn’t worry about it too much.

Goldensweep:  I love your explanation. My mother told me not to change much in my diet or habits (1-2 pops a day) – she said there is a reason that you got a + pregnancy test; it’s because the fertilized egg already liked the way your body was. So I am with you … this baby will survive if it’s meant to be. I certainly woudn’t do anything to hurt the baby, but I won’t dramatically change my body/weight/habit/etc…

MRS-K:  I know this is kinda late, but first off congratulations! Second, I totally did not feel comfortable having sex in my first 3 months of pregnancy (now 21 weeks). I was super nervous like you and I had a few episodes of spotting. I’m sure it would have been completely safe, but I personally feel that if you’re not ready, don’t do it for a while. Right around 12/13 weeks, I decided that I was ready and it’s been awesome since! Hope it all works out! 🙂

MRS-K:  I used to spot occasionally after sex prior to being pregnant so I’m a little concerned. We were told to abstain from CD10 due to it being ivf. We forgot to ask when we were allowed to start up again, I googled and some ivf girls were told to wait til first ultrasound to hear/see heartbeat (around week 7-8), we figured it couldn’t hurt.

I’m on progesterone, already have MS and luckily have the most understanding Darling Husband so we have avoided sex. We have been intimate in other ways thou and that will tide us over until our appt with our specialist next week. 

Honestly I feel so gross on the progesterone I think we unfortunately may be less active even if we get cleared until I stop it. Only 6 weeks to go haha

We’re abstaining, just in case. We only plan on having 1 baby so it’s a one time deal for 3 months to abstain, no biggie.
