Ha ha

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


  1. Not sure how many IF patients she has in her practice. Clearly not that many!

    Glad you are okay.

  2. This post totally made me laugh! I feel like all RE/OB/GYN nurses should have to have been through IF as a job requirement!

  3. hehehe that is funny!! Thanks for the giggle!

  4. Ugh...spotting...soo annoying!! Hope its all cleared up already.

  5. Rest easy. My bleeding came and went as well. Try not to worry but.dont accidentally have sex.
