Prayers & Good Thoughts Please

[deleted account] ( 28 moms have responded )

Hello Ladies,

I have a doctor's appointment today to determine if my HCG level is going up or down. I was in the emergency room Saturday for light bleeding and I've been spotting ever since. I haven't said anything on CoM because honestly, I didn't feel like talking about it. The ultrasound Saturday showed a strong heart beat (120 bpm) and it also showed that I am only 6 weeks along, not the 10 I had originally thought. The heartbeat is a good sign, according to the doctor in the ER.



I'm so nervous about today. I keep trying to not think about what could be happening because that only gets me upset. But sometimes I can't help it. I've sat in the same exact chair I will sit in this afternoon, and heard the worst news several times. It never gets any easier. This morning I looked at my son and thought to myself, "He's enough". If I lose this baby, the son I already have, my beautiful Jacob, will be enough and I will be happy with just having him for the rest of my life. That's the only way I know how to look at it right this moment.



Anyways, I just wanted to let you all know what's going on because believe it or not, I really believe that some of you actually care. Keep us in your prayers and send us your good vibes. I need all the help I can get right now.



Thanks,

Joy

Quoting Joy:

Call me crazy or call it "been there, done that" but I still think something isn't right. I'm trying to count my blessings but it still freaks me out that I'm still spotting. The nurse said as long as it's brown it's ok but I've been having it since Saturday and I don't know, I just don't think it's right. I think until I see the baby on a sonogram or hear a heartbeat I won't believe that everything is ok. I've been here way too many times. Sorry, I just got back from the bathroom and this is all I can think of anymore.


When i was pregnant with Shia, i had some bleeding at about 8 weeks. Went for a scan and all was fine, after tho for about a week i had 'brown spotting'. 



I know how worried you must be, especially after all you've been through before, but it really could be nothing at all.



Any time you want to just chat about it whatever, then we're all here for you and we're all still sending out positive thoughts and vibes to you!!!!!

That's great news!! Just try and relax, the stress isn't going to help the situation. Just keep telling yourself it's going to be fine. :-)

Glad the news was good...baby thoughts being sent to you :). Just to share...I have one family friend that was spotting the ENTIRE first 13 weeks of her pregnancy and all was fine. Another friend had low and dropping HCG levels. Dr. told them to give up on the pregnancy...they didn't they prayed and thought positive things now their daughter is 6 mo old (I actually know two people this happened to). Will be thinking of you. Take care of yourself.

P.S. I almost forgot to thank you ladies for all the kind words. I've been driving myself mad and trying so hard not to think about it at the same time and it's next to impossible. I'm so grateful to have found this group. I'll make sure to keep you all posted if anything changes for the good or for the bad with this pregnancy. Heartfelt thanks again girls!

I just got off the phone with the nurse at my doctor's office and she said my hormone levels are up! She wants me to come in again Monday to test again, just to make sure, but for now, she's happy with the results. I'm happy as well, but cautiously happy. I think until I get through this first trimester, or maybe even to the 20 week point, I won't fully relax. But at least it's good news for now.

Thanks girls :) I'll get the test results tomorrow and I'll let you all know. They're going to be taking blood every 2-3 days for the next week to make sure the hormone levels are rising or falling at a normal rate. Hopefully rising.



I hate waiting. I told them I would sit in the office until 5 if it meant I could get the results back today. Gotta wait until tomorrow though.

Joy, you will definitely be in prayers today, I hope it all works out ok. :-) I bled some with my daughter at 13 wks and everything was fine. My doctor told me 50% of women bleed a little during pregnancy.

{{{Joy}}} Strong health baby vibes to you! After 3 pregnancy losses, I was an erratic mess when I became pregnant again. I rented a hospital grade fetal heart beat monitor and was able to listen to the HB whenever I needed that reassurance. All the best to you for a healthy and uneventful pregnancy.
