<p>I got a call from my doctor letting me know that my blood screen came back positive for pregnancy. I was on birth control so this was very unexpected.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I had an ultrasound this morning and they saw a sac, but nothing in it. By LMP I should be 5 weeks 1 day, and the internet seems to indicate that it is normal to have an empty sac at this point but the impression the doctor gave me was that I would most likely miscarry.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I go back for another ultrasound on 12/16 to see if the pregnancy is viable.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm not sure how I want this to go. I've always wanted one or two more, but the timing on this absolutely sucks. I graduate in March and would be visibly pregnant while job hunting in April. (Which would likely mean no job in this economy) We live in a 2 bedroom house and have a car that won't accommodate a family of 5 Prayers please for the strength to deal with however this turns out...</p>

<p>Both my pregnancies were unplanned so I totally understand your concerns.</p>
<p>I was on the pill when I got pregnant with my twins and with this pregnancy I had a Mirena IUD in place. I was emotionally a mess both times but have come to a peaceful acceptance that "what will be, will be." Sure, it's not what we had planned, but it will all work out in the end. With this pregnancy especially, I had a lot of guilty feelings because IUD pregnancies have a high miscarriage rate and part of me not-so-secretly wished for a m/c in the very beginning. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'll keep you in my prayers. I hope everything works out for the best, whatever that may be.</p>
