Just got back from the RE's office.  I have officially graduated to the regular OB side.  I am 7 weeks exactly.  Baby had a strong heart beat, rate 137bpm.  EDD 9/24 :) He didn't see any cause for the spotting and wasn't worried about it at all.  We are exstatic! 

Any guesses on gender (this was a transvaginal US)??

Thanks!! I started spotting last Monday (9 days ago!).  Pretty light, only need a liner and pretty much only there when I wipe (sorry if that's TMI).  It gets a little heavier when I am on my feet all day and have a hard day at work.  I feel like I can relax a little...

I thought about posting this on the other side but I didn't want to offend anyone.

I wouldn't worry about the spotting at all. MAybe try to take a few breathers from being on your feet all day. But the cervix is just a big sponge full of blood vesels and it doesn't finish fully moving into the pregnancy position until around 11 weeks with first pregnancies, a little earlier in ubsequent pregnancies. SO its fnishing up all its changes and tha tcan definitely cause spotting. ANd there wouldn't be any sign of a cause in that case. 

I wouldn't post it on the other side becasue some people have been especially touchy lately. I'm sorry fr that. Post and update, tell everyone hw you are doing and let them knw you have an ultrasound pic on this side. I'm certain I know a few ladies who will come right over to see:-)

That's exactly what I just did, great mind think alike;) .  I just updated my last post about my spotting.  I'm sure youre exactly right with the bleeding being cervical...there was a TINY fluid collection right above my cervix so that makes sense.

Too early to guess gender.
