So sorry to hear this. Take good care of yourself. This was your first try, right? It might not make you feel better now, but remember that miscarriages are SO common. You'll probably be back here soon.

Best wishes,
Iris

Hang in there sweetie. It's tough, but as someone else said, unfortunately very common. I had to keep reminding myself of that when it happened our first time around.

Thanks for all your support. I don't know what to think at this point.

The blood flow slowed down right after the first gush. Like, I was fine wearing the hospital gown and no underwear for hours. Today it's brown, and there's not much of it at all, and no cramping (but I didn't have much cramping to begin with, just a little right before the bleeding started).

My hcg levels were normal for someone at 5 weeks, but no yolk sac could be seen on ultrasound. I know it should be visible by now so that wasn't a good sign. My temp is still up, but who knows what that means.

I'm getting my levels checked again tomorrow afternoon. I'm hoping they will increase and this was just a freak bleeding episode, but I'm trying to stay realistic.

The not knowing part is so hard! Hang in there, and take good care of yourself. I hope you get some great news tomorrow.

Hey Becky, this is Liz, the ex-PB. Anyway, i am thinking of you and really hoping everything works out. there is so much we don't know and can't explain about pregnancy (esp the 1st trimester!) and I want this to be one of those weird things that works out for you!!
You're in my thoughts, mama.

Well... *sigh* I'm feeling a little discouraged.

I won't know about my hcg levels until tomorrow. The doctor was very sweet and nice and talkative. Based on what I told her, she thought I was miscarrying. *shrug* I don't know. I know that bleeding during early pregnancy doesn't always mean miscarriage is imminent, so I'm not sure why she formed that opinion before examining me or doing my bloodwork or even seeing the paperwork from the hospital. She was just so final about it... telling me how common it is, how we should wait a few cycles before ttc again, etc.

When I went to give a urine sample, I noticed that my spotting had turned from brown a little more pinkish. Not great. So, I won't know officially until tomorrow. I also mentioned my worries about progesterone to her, so she is going to have the hospital test the blood I gave on Monday for that.

During my exam, she said that my cervix was closed.

I'm doing ok. If I am miscarrying, I'm just glad this happened earlier rather than later in pregnancy. Of course I'll be a little bummed, but I feel like I'm going to be ok. My body knows what it's doing, whatever is happening.

beckyphry, I'm just visiting from MayDueDates. If your cervix is closed it is called a "Threatened Miscarriage". That is a great sign, along with the fact that your bleeding is brown and pink. As long as you are not having strong cramps, I would try to relax, spend time off your feet. I just want to give you hope! I bled, spotted, clotted, every color of the rainbow with DD until 14 weeks. At 5 1/2 weeks a sono showed a sac & fetal pole and my cervix was closed. My beta came back great but my progesterone was too low. I took progesterone suppositories until 14 weeks. She is now 15 months old! With this pregnancy I started spotting pink, all pink, every day for 2 1/2 weeks now. At 5 1/2 weeks the sono showed sac & fetal pole and betas were great. I'm on the progesterone agagin because #s were low. At 7 1/2 weeks, sono showed baby & heartbeat of 148! They don't know why I bleed. It may be just what I do! I did bleed bright red with my m/c but I also had severe cramps & my betas took a dive. I hope my story gives you hope! Maybe we are just "spotters"!
