I'm so sorry!

So, I'm 7w3d. I started spotting at 7w4d last time and miscarried at 8w4d. So I'm going into a rather nerve-wracking week. I feel like, if I can get past the 10 week mark, I'll be OK.

Spotting tan this morning. I'm 8w today. I mc'd at 8w4d last time. I'm a wreck waiting, and about to go into my 7-days-on run at work...heck of a time to start this craziness.

Starshine. That is a rough, rough feeling. But this IS a different pregnancy than last time, and spotting now doesn't have to mean the same thing as before. Is there any way you can get in to see someone before you have to start your crazy week? The waiting for answers is torture - and you don't deserve that.

Thanks, ladies. I know this is a different pregnancy and the outcome may be totally different, but it's still nerve-wracking. I feel fine and pregnant and the spotting has tapered off (not that it was a horribly large amount in the first place) to an I-might-be-imagining-it-but-it-looks-a-bit-tan amount. I was thinking and realized that I went a whole day without taking my Vitex...I was all out and with the kids' party yesterday I didn't have a chance to run out for more. First thing this morning when Whole Foods was open I went and got some and took it. I don't know that that had anything at all to do with it...I know Vitex has a cumulative effect and all. But that's the only thing I could point to that made sense. No sex last night, I've not been constipated...none of the usual suspects. And no, there's nobody I can see...I'd have to go to the ER which I won't do...that'll run me over a grand in medical bills. At the beginning of this pregnancy when I was having bright red spotting, I prayed and asked God to just make me miscarry that day if I was going to miscarry at all...that I didn't think I could deal with the build-up and then let-down of another later miscarriage. I obviously didn't miscarry, so I'm just leaning on that (because it's all I have to lean on). Thanks for listening to my rambling. I'll keep you posted. As for work...well, I'm the sole provider in my family, so I HAVE to work. As horrific as it sounds, I can't have a "fragile" pregnancy. I can't go on bedrest. I can't take excessive time off. Even if I went on disability it wouldn't be nearly enough to pay our bills. So we'll just take it one day at a time.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

Jess I'm thinking of you as you deal with that spotting. Between that and being the breadwinner, it has to be a scary scary thing. I hope things even out for you soon.


AFM We had a scan today that turned out well. I'm feeling more positive about this pregnancy. Looks like the 5th time might be our charm. . .

I've got more spotting today and an insane amount of snotty mucus. Trying not to freak out.

I have an ultrasound today to check my dates since I think I ovulated way late, they want to make sure. Hopefully the heart is still beating away and this pink stuff is nothing.

Thanks for the support, ladies. I should update you all. I lost the baby. Pretty early. And I have known about it for weeks. But it's been so much, too much, with my little miss being very sick too.
And I found out today I'm knocked up again, 6+1 by the looks of it.
So I'm going over to the february club.
I hope the rest of you have a good pregnancy and get healthy babies. s
