Thanks for your note... I do still have all those lovely pregnancy symptoms, m/s, tender breasts, fatigue. I could barely eat or keep anything down yesterday. Feeling a little better this afternoon, since I broke down and let myself eat a cup'o'noodles (not exactly my idea of a nutritious meal, but it was the only thing that I could even imagine eating, so I figured at this point, something anything was better than nothing at all).

M0xxie- Im so sorry that you have to experience this, it is incredibly stressful, I know.

My last pregnancy at 9 weeks I woke up in a pool of blood (pretty graphic, sorry) I passed a clot on the bathroom floor and was in hysterics, we drove to the hospital at 5am and I was admitted and had to wait for my OBGYN to see me at 7am, when he walked in he said okay ill send you for a U/S at 8am and will book you in for a D&C this afternoon. He did say however that its a good sign I wasnt crampy.
I couldnt stop crying, it was just awful. Well we went to the U/S and saw our little jelly bean bouncing around happily with a beautiful strong heartbeat!! No explanation for the bleeding just an awful experience.
I was told it was a threatened miscarriage and I spotted until 13 weeks. Each spot though stressed me out completely.

I was still vomiting and at no time did I cramp with the bleeding. That jelly bean is now 3.5 years old!!

I am currently 9 weeks pregnant and so nervous that I will go through that again.

Best of luck to you and I really hope its happy news.

I just wanted to let you know that sometimes even bright red bleeding doesn't necessary means miscarriage. I bled like that when I was pregnant with my almost 4 year old son when I was 14 weeks. It came out of nowhere, it was a huge gush of blood and I thought I peed myself. I continued bleeding for the whole night. Went next day to check me out at the Ob office, my cervix was closed, strong baby heartbeat, the ultrasound didn't show anything bothersome. They even didn't prescribe me a bedrest. I was freaking out for about a week, but I couldn't do anything about it so I finally let it go.
I know how nerve racking is and I am saying it after I had one miscarriage last July, pregnant with a January baby again. NOw it's in the back of my mind at all times but what I decided to do is to save all this energy for when and if is needed. Try to distract yourself with things you like to do, relaxation helps, time with friends, walks... anything that will bring you a peace of mind. And I will pray for you and your family to have good news tomorrow at the exam.

Update, feeling more hopeful

Good morning wonderful women of MDC... I am so grateful for your encouraging words and stories, and I am happy to report that the worst of the bleeding seems past, yesterday there was a steady decline and even this morning just mere traces of tan on my toilet paper. Still no unusual cramps or pains either, and still feeling very pregnant otherwise. I'm waiting until my doctor's office opens at 8am (pacific time) and then I will call and see what they have to say. As much as I'd like to go right in and find out what's going on in there, I also want to wait until tomorrow so DH will be there for added support. But your stories have given me much hope that all is well and continuing as it should, and that is what I am going to believe unless proven otherwise. I just can't stop saying thank you, I know I would be in much worse shape emotionally without your wisdom, experience, compassion and support -- you are all phenomenal!

Update, keep sending those sticky vibes!

Had a nice chat with the advice nurse, and she checked with the doctor, and we're all in agreement that the best course is to keep my scheduled appointment tomorrow morning. So, one more day of waiting... ah, the suspense! I'll keep updating this thread, and by this time tomorrow hopefully I will be back with good news...

It's good news!



We saw the heartbeat (and the rest of the baby!)
Doctor said everything looked great, and the fetus measured exactly what it should have (7w 2d), so my due date remains 1/23/11.

We were so ready to hear bad news, that when it was good news, I almost couldn't take it in... lots of tears, this time tears of joy.

I know we're not out of the woods yet, but I'm so deeply happy right now.

Doctor took 4 pictures, so I'll be scanning and sharing soon.

Thank you, everyone, for all your support, you helped me through a really scary time, and I'm so glad you're there!!!
