So, I have been spotting very lightly (only on visible on toilet paper after I go to the bathroom) brown since Thursday evening. A bit after I first noticed the spotting, I began cramping very badly. Basically this has been going on ever since.
I've adjusted my Magnesium, worked hard on getting more iron and calcium, extra water, lying down as much as possible, and foregoing lifting anything at all. My only success at lessening the cramping was with a glass of red wine yesterday evening although everything came right back this morning. So it appears to have only been a short-term fix.
Since I still have all of my symptoms...HORRIBLE nausea, I've been feeling anxious, but ok about all of this until this evening when I had a rush of pink spotting as I was getting out of the tub. My spotting has now picked up to every time that I wipe (it had died down to every other time or sometimes long stretches...like overnight) and is consistently pink instead of brown. Which, I take to be a bad sign. I also have the same intense cramps that I've had since Thursday.
I'm in a limbo here, but I have a feeling now that a miscarriage is inevitable at this point.
DP and I still plan on dealing with this at home. There's not anything a doctor or midwife could do if this is meant to be a miscarriage. And, if it's not one, then waiting this out won't do any harm. If it is a miscarriage, then the place I need to be is home with my family.
I'll update when I know more, but in the meantime, I'll be a bit distant from this board as it's hard to think about this Baby when I'm not sure if we will make it through this trimester.
