It appears that yesterday’s post was extremely timely. This morning, after using the washroom, I had a spot of red mucus on the toilet paper. It was actually more of a glob (sorry, that sounds gross) and was probably a bit smaller than pea-sized.
My first reaction was minor panic. Anything red tends to stress me out. But then, of course, my mind went right to the very topic I was thinking about yesterday. Could this be implantation bleeding? According to Fertility Friend, I’m 8dpo. And, according to FF’s Pregnancy Monitor (which, I’ve decided I hate, by the way) only “6.7% of pregnancy charts show spotting at 8dpo. 18.2% less than for non pregnant charts.” Great. Those are pretty crappy odds.
Up until now, I had been doing really will with my vow not to obsess about how I’m feeling or google random symptoms this month. But this current development has driven me right back to the internet. Damn, I have no willpower.
