First off, I should say I'm new here. I've been reading all night, but finally decided to post.
I just turned 29, I have 5 kids (youngest is 8 months old). I'm not on birth control. I'm 5'3" and 155 (over weight for my height, this is the first time I've ever been over weight, I'm use to weighing about 105)
My period use to be every 34 or so days. After I had my baby, around 4 months, they went to every 28-29 days.
I am on cycle day 13, my periods usually last a full 7 days. So I haven't been off of it long. Well, last night I started getting red spotting mixed with fertile cervical mucous, so I assumed it was ovulation bleeding (which I have had ovulation spotting before). Well it's been happening on and off all day long. It doesn't warrant a pad, maybe a panty liner. I almost feel like I'm starting my period all over again, I have some cramping where I always cramp for my period. And of course this would happen on a Saturday when my OB isn't in the office. I want to wait til Monday so I can go to my dr, but I'm so scared. I'm a hypochondriac with anxiety/panic disorder (all unmedicated). So, of course my mind goes to bad, bad things. Cervical cancer (I did have a pap within the last 3-4 months and it was clear), ovarian cancer, everything!
I had an ultrasound on my upper abdomen on Wednesday to check for an umbilical hernia (all clear), so they didn't see anything up there.
Basically I just want to know if there's others out there that have had this. I ask people around me in real life and they look at me like I have 3 heads.
