OH NO!

I really hope that this is nothing.

I had sharp cramps and bright blood when pg with DS...I was convinced I had m/c, but when I went for the u/s to confirm there was a little heart beat.

...hope that you have a happy ending too.

I had bleeding (pink to red) with my dd. It turned out my progesterone was too low. Once I started taking progesterone, it stopped and the pregnancy was saved. Maybe you can get tested for that?

Praying for you! I had spotting with my sixth pregnancy and found out later I had lost one twin (the other was born healthy). They told me that was common? Anyway - get your progesterone tested if you can.

I'm praying for you and the baby.

I had pink/brown bleeding on Monday night, but it didn't last long. Could you be having breakthrough bleeding? Have you DTD in the last couple of days (personal, I know, but I've had some pink spotting in both of my last pgs after DTD, so I thought I'd throw that out there).

Thinking of all you spotting mamas...

I had quite a bit of spotting/brown discharge last weekend...I know it can be normal. I'm positive mine was implantation bleeding - I had it with DD around the time I expected my period, so maybe that's what it is?

Sticky thoughts...:

Thank you so much everyone. We'll take as many prayers and good thoughts as people want to send.

Still no cramping, and this morning it's moved from light pink to a brown discharge, which makes me feel a bit better, but it hasn't stopped. It's quite light, which also encourages me. Nothing is open on Sundays here in Oz.... but I will call my HCP anyway.

We are not ok.....

ultrasound showed a gestational sac consistent with a 4-5 week pregnancy, no heartbeat, no fetal pole. I should have been 6w, 5d. A 4-5 week preg is impossible, as I would have had my bfp around ovulation then, and I was so tired we were not very "active" around then the scan would have dated us...

The ER Dr. told us it was inconclusive, and not to give up hope, since the scan didn't show an active m/c. They took a qhcg, and ordered another for Tuesday. We're not hopeful. We want this baby so much...

I'm in pretty much the same boat as you.

We measured 1 week behind at our last u/s, (dated at 5 weeks, but I know we are at 6), found a sac, but no 'occupant'.

...we are waiting for our next u/s to be conclusive...it's a *LONG* wait

my thougts are with you,
charlene

We have a u/s on 5/25, it was originally scheduled for dating.

I'm off to bed, hoping to sleep well but I don't think I will.

...hopefully that extra week will gave babe time to grow, and he/she will be ready for the big show on the 25th.

Do you have a tilted uterus? Apparently it is extremely common, and makes it a little more difficult for an u/s to 'see' what is going on in the uterus.

...you are in my thoughts and prayers.
