40 years old, 5 wks Pregnant and spotting...But everything seems to be fine ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Del F ๐ŸŒˆ Mommy to Berkeley 10/19/19

Just found out that I was pregnant this past Tuesday. Last night, I was awakened by the worst cramps on the left side. They lasted about 10 minutes. Afterwards, I went right back to sleep. When I woke and went to the bathroom, there was some light pink blood of the tissue. I FREAKED!!!!! I also wasnโ€™t having all the symptoms was had had even the day before. I thought the absolute worst ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Fast forward to my doctors appt this afternoon. They did an ultrasound and said that they see no signs of a miscarriage (thank you God), they said that the gestational sac and yolk sac were in tact and they saw no blood. The midwife said that my cramps were probably caused by gas bc this little bean has me backed up and the spitting was from my fibroids. She said that as long as the blood is not heavy like a period flow, she is not concerned bc some spiting is completely normal. What a relief ๐Ÿ˜ฐ Canโ€™t pretend that Iโ€™m not going to be worried until I hear the heartbeat in a few weeks.

Any ladies experience anything similiar?
