I went to the ER because I started spotting shortly after I found out that I was pregnant. I didn’t realize that light spotting during pregnancy is normal. This was my first pregnancy that I experienced any spotting and I was scared that I was going to lose the baby. So I went to the ER, just to be safe. The doctor that I saw didn’t feel that I was miscarrying so scheduled me to have an ultrasound, at the OB clinic to check on things. The ultrasound confirmed that the pregnancy was viable and that I was just experiencing implantation bleeding.
The only symptoms that I had was mild morning sickness and I wasn’t able to eat very much at all during my first trimester. I managed to lose 15 lbs due to eating small amounts of food that I could manage to eat. My doctor wasn’t concerned since I was overweight when I conceived my baby. After the first trimester it was much easier to eat and didn’t have any more food aversions, I did crave healthy food for the most of my pregnancy. My favorite craving was a chef salad with ranch dressing and a large tea to drink.
