I've had some cramping for the last few weeks. I didn't really think to much of it, remembering the round ligament pain I had while pregnant with my second daughter. Today I found some blood while using the bathroom, and I called the health link number and spoke to a nurse. She was more concerned about the cramping than the blood, and wanted me to go see someone within four hours.<br><br>
I waited for three hours at the walk-in clinic. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked"> By then the bleeding had subsided to almost nothing, but the cramping was still there. The doc said he wasn't too worried but is ordering an ultrasound for me. Oh, and a blood test to make sure I'm *actually* pregnant. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> I haven't been to see a HCP because I only just got offered a space in a midwifery practice on Friday.<br><br>
I could really use some good vibes. I hate to freak out over something that could be nothing, but it's so hard not to worry.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> I honestly don't know how we all survive these months. I'd love to hear from the zen-like mamas who are able to actually DO what I'm trying so hard to...enjoy each day I'm pregnant, stay in the present, stay positive and just not worry. I wish you a speedy, reassuring ultrasound and a very sticky little bean.

Thank you so much for the support. It really helps!<br><br>
I have a u/s booked for this afternoon. I doubt they will actually tell me anything there, but hopefully the doc's office will get back to me soon.

I've been draping off and on and asked my RE, they said they would be shocked if a lady did not report cramping at some point in the first two months.<br><br>
Warm healthy vibes headed your way, I'm sure things are fine.

I went for the u/s this afternoon.<br><br>
I need to go back to the referring doc to get the full results, but the good news is I have a uterine pregnancy, measuring 7 weeks and with a heartbeat.<br><br>
They can't confirm or deny an ectopic pregnancy (they couldn't see one side for some reason), but told me it's really unlikely with a confirmed uterine pregnancy. If I have more definitive symptoms of an ectopic I'm supposed to go to emergency for another u/s.<br><br>
Sooo, I'm taking this as good news and hoping that everything will be very uneventful from now on!

What # baby is this for you? I find I cramp more in each pregnancy. I bled until 10 weeks or so with my daughter because of a subchorionic hemorrhage and it was so scary. I spent 12 hours in the ER one night, 8 before I was even seen. I was a wreck. Everything was fine though. Glad you saw your babe! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">

This is #3 (guess I should finally get around to making a new siggy!). Thank you for sharing your experience: it must have been terrifying for you but it is very reassuring!
