I just came back from my first appointment and boy am I terrified. Some time in early September I found out I was pregnant. I had my last period in 27 of July, and missed a period in August. I have what I think might be a fairly regular cycle of 29 days. But over the last year my periods have been longer, sometimes lasting up to 8 to 10 days. Anyway...fast forward to today. My doctor does the first ultrasound and asked me who told me I was pregnant. My heart sank. For a second there I totally thought could I have imagined all this. He then sent me to the lab for a pregnancy test because to him the ultrasound was showing either a sac or something else..like old blood. So, I took a blood pregnancy test, which came out positive. So, at least that confirmed I'm not going nuts. He prescribed me bed rest and 300 mg of progesterone vaginally because of the spotting. I have to take a few tests to measure my pregnancy hormones over the next few days.
I am beyond terrified of losing this baby. I have heard people coming out of similar situations alright. I could have miscalculated my conception date. But I'm also starting to think maybe I just over did it these last couple of weeks. I want to stay positive but can't help but torture myself.
