I had a few hours of brown spotting yesterday. . . a small amount, but I thought I should call my OB, just to be on the safe side. (The spotting subsided within a few hours, thank goodness.)
The triage nurse from the office didn't call me back until this morning, which I told MM was a good sign. Prior times I've called, she's gotten back to me within an hour, so the delay reassured me that this was nothing urgent I needed to be worried about and that they wouldn't need me to come in.
Anyway, when I talked to the nurse, she gave me the standard spiel about resting, drinking lots of fluids, monitoring the spotting and calling back if the bleeding was red, soaking a pad an hour, or accompanied by cramping. She also told me that I should avoid "exercise and intercourse" for at least 48 hours after the spotting stopped.
I told her "Oh, don't worry: I haven't done either of those things in six weeks anyway." I could tell by her slight pause and tone that my comment made her a little uncomfortable.
Gah, you'd think being a nurse in an OB office, she'd have heard it all by now. Hee hee
