Ugh, I'm feeling yucky. I'm crampy but it's not the good cramping (is there such a thing?)--you know, the cramping that feels like stretching. This cramping is AF-like. My back is hurting too and I feel like this:
I about ate my dh's head for dinner when he opened the trunk of my car and saw his dad's day gifts. I would've been fine if he saw and kept it to himself but he had to come in the house with a smirk on his face, all happy and pleased. I know it was an accident but it really irked me. Now I feel like crap physically and I'm mad and sad on top of it.
Anyway, I'm slightly worried but trying to stay as positive as possible. I haven't seen any spotting but this low-back pain and AF-like cramping has me wondering what's going on.
Stay positive! I had low back pain and AF like cramping with my last pregnancy, which resulted in the sweet little 18 month old who is currently snoring away in our family bed. For the first several weeks I felt like AF was coming any minute.
Keeping my fingers and toes crossed that tomorrow is a better day.
If you have progesterone cream, I'd rub it in. There's no point in having anything that you could do, but haven't, to blame yourself for if anything goes wrong.
If I were you, I'd take some time to do some thinking about how you'd like things to go, if you got the news that this baby isn't going to make it. Are you going to feel more comfortable with everything medically managed and the doctors taking control of your body and fixing things as fast as possible? Or would you rather let mother nature take her time and do things at their own time and at their own rate? That's one of the things which is going to affect your decision about whether to ask for help and the blood draws tomorrow or not.
I don't think this is time to give up hope- you still stand a very good chance of cuddling that baby in February. I just think that whatever choices you make now, you have to live with.

Yah, it's over. My temps took a nose-dive today--from 98.4 to 97.9. That and the bleeding tells me that I'm done. I feel so sad, so angry, so cheated. I was holding my dd this a.m. and the tears just started flowing. I wanted this baby so much. I wanted her for me, for her, for our family and for my dd. I really wanted to give my girly a sister (or brother, but I think it was a girl). She didn't know anything but I still feel like I let her down.
