Hey, this is a mini rant...<br><br>
I guess I'm pregnant, but I'm having a tough time. I bled for 5 dd at the beginning (had a positive urine test on day 3 of bleeding, when I wondered why my period was so light) now I've been having VERY light spotting for 2 days. It's pretty much stopped now, but who knows.<br><br>
I'm sick of wondering if this pregnancy will "stick." My last pregnancy ended in miscarriage at 5.5 weeks. Now as I head into the fifth week I just don't know how hopeful to be.<br><br>
My HCG was low-ish, but rising at a normal rate.<br><br>
I'm having an U/S in ten days (ug- so long!) and see what it looks like.<br><br>
I'm trying so hard not to let my moment to moment happiness depend on whather I'm bleeding or not, and whether or not I'm having PG symptoms at the moment.<br><br>
Anyway, it feels good to write out how sucky I feel.<br><br>
Thanks<br>
Jennifer

I don't really know what to write. I know how you feel, you want to be excited, but everyday passes so slow, you don't know what the outcome will be. I had two m/c's a few years ago both very early, I know that even when you lose a baby early its so devestating and that memory sticks with you, especially while your pregnant again. Try and keep a lot of positve energy around you, I know all of us mamas are sending more your way. Its a good sign that your levels are rising. Lots and lots of hope for a sticky!<br>
Feel free to let your feelings out here. Vent as much as you need to, or about your hopes, as long as it makes you feel better.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2">

I know how you feel. When I had spotting w/ my first pg (which ened in m/c), I remember EVERY time I went to the RR, I'd always look for more spotting. Drove me nuts. "Is any there?" "Is that more than last time?" "How long since last time?" "Is it a different color than last time?" And then with any subsequent pg's, it still drove me nuts because I'd still check for blood/spotting each time I went to the RR.<br><br>
I had 2 miscarriages.... but now I have 2 babies and a 3rd on the way. It just takes patience and trust that it will happen when the time's right. Everything happens for a reason, so however it turns out, it is best, even if we don't understand how or why.<br><br>
Hang in there. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"> When i was in your situation, I prayed, asking for peace, and I amazingly felt better about the whole situation!
