there is this dull ache have had for a while
and i am so tense
it could just be from that
and i don't know if i should go to er
which is over an hour away
or wait until tomorrow for my appointment
i think if it continues in a bit will call advice nurse and ask
keep picturing waking up in agonizing pain int he middle of the night and having to sit in a car for over an hour while bleeding to get to the er.
it is low on left side

if it is ectopic
i just looked up Methotrexate

and web page says not safe for nursing child
i don't know how long takes to be out of system
what if my son forgot how to nurse cuz of the chemical in body

he nurses a couple times a day still and on and off all night long
and it is so special
something i love so much and he loves so much
and is so important

if baby is lost
and then son forgets how to nurse
i don't know what i would do

that would be so awful

Your ds won't forget. My dd weaned a couple months ago (around her second birthday) and she still pretends to nurse her dolls and she asked to nurse last week, after not nursing for months. I don't think they can forget something that's been such a part of their life and their being for all these months.

Mama D, you are right - the dose for ectopic is low compared to other reasons methotrexate is used.

But I just wanted to add that the very best thing for you and your baby is to try to remain calm and relaxed. It does no good to stress out and worry about something that may not be.

i know stress is bad and have been doing everything in my power to be as calm as possible

the spotting started after a night of ptsc type panic attacks
i spend a lot of time worrying my stress has killed the baby

i know it is bad
i do everything i can to be calm

if the baby is dead i will blame myself and believe it is from stress.

no please don't say that! Stress cannot do that otherwise throughout history - with wars, poverty, plague, personal crises, family illness, homelessness, natural disasters, losing jobs, losing houses, etc - the human race would have died out by now.

Stress is just no fun mama. Hoping the best for you

Mama D, I think it might be a good idea to give your health care provider a call. It sounds like what you are experiencing is more like depression than stress. There are a lot of people out there that can help with these feelings of guilt and despair. Blaming yourself for miscarriage is simply not healthy. I assume you are not a drug addict or otherwise putting yourself in danger and if this is true than it is imperative that you find a way to peace.

sorry about my post earlier
i have a therapist who is aware of what is going on
i suffer from depression and anxiety and have been under a lot of stress all of that related to ptsd.
blaming myself is a way to feel some sort of control over the situation.
i will find out this evening what is going on when i get the ultra sound and my therapist asked me to call her cell phone and tell her what i find out.

my baby is not ectopic
something with placenta cause spotting

the technician was really nice

at firsts he was mean

and i started crying and my husband explained more how hard week has been and then i think she got angry at hospital because they really really should have got me in days ago and should not have been taking so long and scheduling me for worst possible time for ultra sound and stuff.

and then the technician broke some rules! she let me see the heart beating and let me see the baby and told me some of what she was seeing and she was really nice and she is not supposed to tell me anything at all and the way it works she didn't have to get a doctor but she went got one and made sure i got info right away. she could have just made me wait until tomorrow to find out a lot of technicians theire would of. it is because the rural clinic near my house and the big hmo hospital don't have good communication set up and so really hard to get tests needed and just had to wait a long time for any answers and it has been really stressful. but the doctor there talked to me said the placenta has something with how is attached that almost always resolves itself and i wrote it down not gonna google it and find horror stories but wrote it down so my rural doctor can know in case she has trouble getting answers from the big hospital. the doctor thinks baby will be fine and i know why the spotting has been happening and i can breath again.

i will breath better when the placenta thing resolves though.

I'm glad to hear that things look good thus far.

If it helps alleviate any stress thus far, I bled throughout my first pregnancy--sometimes very heavily--and my daughter is now 10. I have encountered similar issues with this pregnancy and it is extremely nerve-wracking.

Keep a good thought and try to keep stress as minimal as possible.
