Looks like I'll be out of this forum in a few days. :( I've had cramps for three days and yesterday started to bleed like it was my period. It stopped overnight, but I'm still having pains in my lower abdomen. 

We've decided we won't try again after this and will be taking permanent measures to prevent more kids, which breaks my heart, but I'm starting to think my sons were just a fluke. We thought we'd figured out what caused the first three losses before them, and the one right after was chalked up to my body not being ready after having two kids in a row. But this one . . . it's later than any of my others and obviously something else is going wrong, so I don't think I can try again, knowing that it's not likely to work. DH says we should just be happy with the two we've got.

So sorry to hear this hug2.gif

Still uncertain . . . the bleeding stopped and I'm just spending my days in bed, working. Still sick as a dog and my breasts still hurt, so I guess hormone levels are still up. And now we wait! DH suggested we go to the doctor, we may go next week if we can, just to get a better idea of what is going on. I know I haven't miscarried yet, the clots were all too small, so we shall see. I'm not sure whether to feel hopeful or not!

Well, still hanging here. I haven't seen any more blood, the cramping is gone and I'm still sick as a dog and have horribly sore boobs, so I'm taking that as a good sign! I will probably try to see the doctor in the next couple of weeks to see what is happening (keep putting it off because of work and not wanting to do it all just to find out it's over), but I am feeling so horrid that I'm pretty sure there's still a baby in there!
