Well, not sure where to put this, but I'm almost definitely out. My HCG and progesterone are good, but they weren't able to see a heartbeat on Monday. Going back next week to be extra sure, but it's pretty definite at this point.

 

Good luck to everyone and a happy and healthy nine months!

aphel, I'm so sorry. Are you going in for another HCG test today to see if it's still rising? Hoping it was just a tad too soon, or that your anatomy was making it difficult (retroverted uterus maybe?), to see that tiny heart pumping away and next week will bring better news.

I'm sorry aphel.  I'm hoping the test was too early like autumngrey stated.  You are in my thoughts.

Oh no aphel, I hope it was just too early.  How far along are you?  hug.gif

Should have been 6w5d, so they should have seen something.

 

I'll be fine once it's over with. Just waiting . . . .

Many hugs, Aphel...

Oh no, I'm sorry.  hug.gif  That happened to me in September and then again in February, I'm sorry you're going through it now.

I'm out now as well. The spotting from Monday continued yesterday. Today it turned into clots and this evening it's all falling apart. This was my first baby and I have no idea if I did the right thing by just waiting to see what happened with the spotting. I feel so clueless; I am not sure if I could have gotten my levels checked and they would find something to "fix." Or if the fact that I had a miscarriage dream the night before the spotting started meant something, like it was inevitable. Either way, I am glad to have a supportive community. Enjoy the journey-- best wishes for all of you to have healthy, happy babies in January.

Changed my username, decided I needed one without my real name in it.  It's going to take me a little while to get used to this one!

 

I tried to change mine the other day and couldn't figure it out  Do tell!

 

And YES, the nausea is horrendous for me, too.  It is worse in the afternoons while I am at work, but it is pretty much all day.

TeamViddy, in 99.999% of cases there is nothing that can be done to prevent a miscarriage. When they happen this early it is almost always because of a chromosomal or structural defect and there is no "fix" for that.

 

Many hugs and luck for the future.

Teamviddy - I agree with aphel.  There is nothing that you could have done and didn't.  The early miscarriages (which many if not most of us have experienced) generally are the body's way of dealing with a pregnancy that wasn't viable for whatever reason.  Hugs to both of you.

Aphel and TeamViddy - I am so sorry, I hope you can work past this and go on to have healthy babies soon!

I am thinking of you TeamViddy.  I'm sorry.

It costs $3 for a username change, but I decided it was worth it so I didn't have my real name in my username anymore!  Here's info on it:

Teamviddy and aphel, please know I am thinking of you. My heart hurts for both of you. Losing a pregnancy is not a fun thing to go through. Take good care of yourselves. (((Hugs)))

post #140 of 175

While I'm really happy to have found you all, I'm really sad thinking about those of you who have lost. My heart goes out to you. I've been there.

 

And here I am now hoping the terrible late afternoon nausea I'm experiencing is a good sign. Along with the cravings for chocolate milk!? My food aversions sound just like those many of you are experiencing. I've got the weird dreams (which I vividly recall from my first pregnancy, 1996) and the sore breasts. So far, everything seems pretty normal and much more real or intense than my 2010 pregnancy that resulted in a miscarriage. I've been waking up early and happy and feeling energized—very unusual for someone who has always felt allergic to mornings.

 

Being that I had *just* turned 40 precisely a week before my LMP, the father and I were not at all confident that we would conceive. I took a test on a Friday morning before a celebratory weekend that was going to involve drinking and I was disappointed at the negative result but figured it meant I could imbibe. Five days later—five days after I had expected my period—I took another test. The positive result was confirmed when I took a third test the following morning. Hooray!

 

At my age, I feel that I'll be really fortunate if all goes smoothly. But I'm hoping (and praying) to be that fortunate.

 

You all seem like great people and I'm already feeling the love.

 

Best of luck to you all and I look forward to getting to know you over the months ahead!
