Hi all,

I had a + pg test on Sunday. Today is Tuesday and I took another test because my breasts weren't as sore and full and I just felt I needed to. It is negative. I also had one tiny spot of brown mucusy tinged stuff. I am losing this baby, aren't I?

This has happened to me several times before. I would be sure I was pg, every symptom then symptoms would disappear and my period would arrive. My doctor tested me and I did have low progesterone. Thus, the clomid. Does this make sense? Wouldn't a progesterone cream or suppositories make more sense?

I did three cycles of clomid, never had a spot of cervical mucus and did not get all my pg symptoms once. Now that I am using "First Response" I think I am getting the pg result I want early and then it does not stick.

Please give me advice. Any one have similar problems? Help. I think I am losing my mind. I need to stop crying and have a happy Christmas Eve Day with my five year old. Who I may have to tell isn't going to be a big brother in September any more. I am so sad.

Anne.

I am so sorry. What a terrible blow. I don't have any information or advise, I just wanted to say that I'm very sad for you. Only time will heal your pain, but I hope you can have some joy with your loved ones this Christmas. There's nothing better than watching a child at Christmas. I hope by next year you'll be watching two. God's blessings for all of you.

Anne, I'm so sorry. My heart's just breaking for you.

After my miscarriage I had a progesterone test that came up low. I'm supposed to take prog. supplements for the second half of each cycle, but I haven't started them yet.

You'll be in my thoughts.

Oh, coolermom, I'm so sorry. I would get a second opinion about the progesterone. It seems to me that you need to be taking it like summerlover. Keep us posted. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

oh anne,
so sorry. you inspired me to be hopeful- period is due on the 26th also and i have been struggling with the urge to test- (just did this morning and it came up negative)- so sorry for you- i have low progesterone too- perhaps i should use cream/suppositories too after ovulation... well, could be seen as good sign- you were somewhat preg.- bit stressful (for me at least) to be preg. during next few weeks- travelling and accomodating toddler on the road-let's hope we are both preg. in the new year!

Thank-you all so much for your kind words and support. I have not actually started bleeding yet (no more brown, even). I am not holding much hope but still, what a nice night for a miracle! "I believe in miracles, since you came along..." That song keeps going through my head.

Still, my sweet son is trying desparately to fall asleep so Santa will come. The cookies and milk are waiting for you know who and there are carrots scattered in the snow for his reindeer (or the Bunnies that live in our nieghbourhood!) Life is good.

I believe I am all cried out for the moment.

Peace and joy to all, Merry Christmas!
Anne.

Anne,
I hope your Christmas is a wonderful one. I have been wishing against hope that I am pregnant this cycle, and reading your post, and the way you sound - so together, it is inspiring. I know you probably don't feel together, but you have such a healthy attitude, I just know things will work out for you.
Much love on Christmas Eve,
Steph

Hi Mothers and Mothers to be,

Happy Boxing Day!

The good news is that it was not an ectopic pregnancy. The bad news is that I am miscarrying. Because I am just 4 weeks, 2 days it is much like a normal period, although crampier. We are all sad that we will not be having a Baby in Septmember. I am somewhat cheered to find that I can still get pg. I obviously have atleast one open tube.

Here's to the New Year and many healthy "Mothering" babies in time for next Christmas!

I am going to Nova Scotia for two weeks to be with family. (We live in Ontario.) I'll be in touch on line from there.

Love and blessings to all, Anne.
