I think I may be having a miscarriage - Page 2

post #21 of 45
Thread Starter 
Thanks. I think my midwife is out for the weekend; her father is not in the best of health, so she sometimes visits him (he's a few hours away). I can't find her cell number, so I am just playing the waiting game. Nothing new, but still have brown blood. No more fresh, and no more cramps (only had a few the other day, after a BM, sorry, TMI).

So, if I'm having a M/C, why do I still feel so yucky? Like I'm about to throw up, but never do?

Hopefully that's a good sign! You are in my thoughts mama...

I hope that everything is ok. I spotted during my pregnancy and it was very scary.

I am hoping it's just some wacky false alarm like it was for me.

Gardenmommy, I'm still not convinced you are having a m/c. Absolutely you know your own body, but I had spotting on Friday as well that started out red and faded to brown and now nothing. I had no cramping and still have nausea and m/s.

Even though you said your m/c went like this, maybe it looks like that, but it isn't. I really, really hope that it isn't. I wish you could get hold of your m/w.

I'm going to try to get hold of my midwife again this afternoon. I haven't actually seen her yet for this preg., as I was going to wait until a little farther in. I would like to talk to her, and hear her opinion about the situation.

At this point, I just really don't know what to think. On the one hand, I keep seeing spotting, mostly brown, not very much. On the other hand, I still have that yucky feeling I've had most of this preg., it's really uncomfortable when my toddler nurses, and I'm still tired.

Not sure where you all stand religiously, so don't take offense if you aren't, please. I feel very much at peace, that this baby is in God's hand, and the outcome is in His good plan. I am not going to pray for the baby to not to pass, because what if there is a reason for the M/C? There is so much that I cannot see and do not know about life, that is beyond my understanding. I will not pray for a M/C, either, because, of course, I *really do* want to keep this baby. What will be, will be, and I can't do anything really one way or the other.

I really appreciate your thoughts and prayers. I'll keep you updated as I know more.

Gardenmommy I was just wondering how things were going for you? I was also wondering if you have had an ultrasound at any point in this pregnancy... if you have you may feel comforted to know that the risk of miscarriage goes WAY down once a heartbeat is determined.

Anyways, I'm thinking about you and your baby and praying for the best. And I understand what you mean about it being in God's hands. I was the same way when I was spotting.... you don't want to lose the baby, but you have to trust in the way things go, an the fact that there must be a reason for things.... hang in there!

I am thinking about you as well.

Praying for God's will!

Have to say too, being sick and uncomfortable is a still great sign!

Ok, well I am cautiously optimisic. Today is the second day with no spotting at all, and Sunday I had next to none (just a very little in the morning). I spoke with my midwife yesterday morning. She was also cautiously optimisitc, given that I haven't had any more bright red, and no cramping since earlier last week. She told me what I already know: take it easy, be kind to myself, eat good food, drink plenty, rest when I can, etc.

I am hoping and praying that this means that this one will be here in 7 months, and not with the Lord. Please continue to pray for me. I really appreciate it!

Could you have lost a twin? Did you have blood trapped in you uterus from an implantation bleed that finally desided to come out? No clots or anything of that sort? I know myself I had bleeding around 8 weeks three weeks ago, had an us because last time was a miss, turned out I lost a twin and it was the residual sp? that was left comming out. Now Iam almost 12 weeks and no more bleeding. Take it easy, but remember if you do miss it is nothing that you did, they just happen.

Gardenmommy, I think that sounds good. I think it's so healthy and serene of you to be at peace with whatever the outcome is. I do pray that this little baby will be okay.

Hadn't thought of the poss. of losing a twin. I don't think so, just because the volume of blood wasn't that great, not a lot of clots (just some very small ones, not enough to hardly consider them clots), etc.

My midwife suggested that perhaps it's just bleeding that would occur during my normal cycle, or maybe some cervical abrasion (due to the blood vessels being enlarged/closer to the surface or whatever). No sex, as I just can't stand to be touched, much less intimate! (poor Dh, he is very patient!)

So, I am optimistic, but am cautious. I am trying to take it easy, but have so many things to do that really can't be put off, it's hard. I'm just trying to make life easier for me: lots of sandwiches instead of big meals, small amounts of laundry, letting the house slide (it really needs cleaning!), doing the minimal amount of stuff I can. My poor horses are barely getting a lick and a promise with regards to their care. Same with my cat.

We recently began a s system whereby the children have set chores, and others that are assigned for pay. This is helping tremendously, as they can do so much to help out around the house and yard. Plus, they like knowing they are contributing to the family, and earning some spending money. So that's taking some of the work off my shoulders, too.
