I really don't know what to say. I was in class today and felt something. I started having very mild cramping and went to the bathroom. There was some brown discharge on my panty liner, but then I noticed the blood coming out when I went to the bathroom. I'm so scared

I just got off the phone with a midwife and she said it sounds like a miscarriage. I'm going in for bloodwork today and tomorrow.

I am so depressed. I was so afraid this would happen. I can't believe it...


UPDATE!!!!

Okay, so I just got back from having an ultrasound. I saw the little peanut and the heart beating!! 141 beats per minute!
The ultrasound tech said I have a bicornuate uterus...it's shaped like a heart. Basically, he said everything should be fine. BUt I looked it up and I will have a much higher rate of miscarriages, preterm labor, smaller babies (because of the shape of my uterus, the baby doesn't have as much room to grow), and most of the babies are born breech and require a C-section. I really, really want a homebirth!

Okay, okay...I am just glad that everything appears just fine right now. I'm still worried as heck, but to see the heart beat really helped lift my spirits!

He also said that the bicornuate uterus could be why I am bleeding a little bit.

I'm just so happy But I don't want to get too excited...

I will be thinking of you and hoping all turns out ok. Take care of yourself, try to rest and stay positive until you know anything for sure. Your baby knows that you love her.

Dear Mom2be, I'm praying all will turn out just fine and it's something else that's causing the bleeding. My thoughts are with you!

Thanks for all your support. You guys are really helping me stay positive through this experience.

Just got back from the hospital. Dh came home early to take me in. They're checking my HCG levels today and Thursday to see if they drop. (keep your fingers crossed!)

I was a wreck earlier, but I am slowly starting to accept that if this happens, it was meant to be. It still doesn't make it any easier.

The worst part is going to be telling all our family and close friends what's happening

Thinking of you today. I'm very sorry. I went through that last year with a m/c. The uncertaintly during that bleeding phase is so hard. It might go away, it might not, that is so hard to wait for an answer. I will say a prayer for you.

Thank you all so much for your support.

I have stopped bleeding since that time I was in class. (Warning...TMI) Now I only get a big of brown-mucousy (sp?) stuff when I wipe. So I guess that's a good sign?
No cramps either. I am just trying to take it easy. Luckily it's snowing today so all my classes were cancelled. I am staying horizontal and not trying to get up much. I hope that is helping.

I should hear from the midwife today how my HCG levels were yesterday. I'm nervous...

has your midwife (or whoever) not mentioned implantation bleeding?

when the zygote is implanting into the womb there is sometimes bleeding and mild cramping.

some women have lots and some aheva little and some have none.

strong cramps (like period cramps) and red blood are usually a sign of m/c.

hoping you are okay!
