Hi all. I'm hoping someone who has been through something similar can maybe give me some answers. I found out I was pregnant this past Friday (it is now tuesday). My period was only a few days late so I suspect I'm not very far along. I can't get in to the doctor until next week, so really I have no clue what's going on.
The same day I took the HPT, I started spotting. I read online that spotting is normal in early pregnancy due to implantation bleeding, so I didn't think too much about it. The bleeding has continued everyday since. I've passed a few tiny clots but nothing major. My breasts are hardly sore at all anymore (they were EXTREMELY sore and sensitive before the spotting) and I don't feel pregnant anymore. Yesterday I started cramping in my lower stomach and my lower back. I'm still cramping and spotting. It's a little more than normal period cramps, but nothing to intense. I've slept on a heating pad the past few nights.
Here's the thing. I'm 25 years old and have suffered from anorexia for the past several years. My current BMI is 16 (healthy is 18.5 and above). However, I've never lost my periods even at my lowest weight. And unfortunately I'm a heavy smoker and since I didn't know I was pregnant until after my missed period, I smoked while pregnant. My husband and I were not trying to conceive, so I was not prepared.
I know the only way to know for sure is at the doctor, but since I have to wait I was just hoping maybe someone could help? Any words would be greatly appreciated.
