I'm 6 weeks and woke this morning to some spotting. I've been bleeding all day. No real cramps or any clots. I had my blood drawn and will go again in 3 days (no place to have it done in 2 because of Thanksgiving) and see what's happening with the HcG levels. I'm just holding out hope that this doesn't have to mean I'm miscarrying. Anyone have moderate blood in the 1st tri and make it through okay??

I may see if I can have an ultrasound too...we'll see what tomorrow brings.

Thank you for sharing your stories.

I'm bleeding again today...moderate, bright red but no clots. Just hoping, hoping, hoping this baby makes it.

I'm going to an ultrasound in about 2 hours.
I want to comfort eat but I have lost all appetite worrying about this. I know worrying doesn't help but it's hard not to.

It helps to know that sometimes it works out the way we want it to.

Well, what a day!
My blood test came back. HcG is within the normal range (as of yesterday). My progesterone level was REALLY low though. I'm trying to figure out exactly what we can do about that and hoping it's not already too late. They can't get me the progesterone cream until Friday or Saturday. I'm taking Vit E every hour as that is supposed to help with progesterone. I have 4 natural progesterone pills to take until the cream comes- 2 for today and 2 for tomorrow. I will have another blood test tomorrow and hopefully my HcG will have doubled as it is supposed to.

I never made it to the ultrasound apt. After driving for 50 minutes, the directions they game were incomplete and when I called on the road for clarification they said there was no way I would make it before the office was closing...I guess I had the last apt. of the day and they were closing early for the holiday. I pretty much pulled over and broke down crying. My kids were in the car and I didn't want to frighten them but I just couldn't help it. I was so hoping for the opportunity to hear this baby's heart beat...just one time at the very least.

After all this, I picked up the turkey at the store and now I'm so tired. I'm just going to have to lay down...I'm just praying for my little one to come through this with me.

Sorry to say, I lost my baby on Thanksgiving day.

Thank you for all sharing all your stories. They helped to give me hope. It helped me get through a difficult time to know some women experience this and still have a healthy baby. Unfortunatley, this wasn't one of those times. I'd rather have hope right up until the end then feel despair the whole time.

I still have my ultrasound apt. scheduled on Monday. I'll go and see if anything is still in there or not (placenta, sac, pockets of blood, etc)

Enjoy your pregnancies and please don't let this scare you if you are still spotting.
