I am currently 6 weeks pregnant, and I am a high risk pregnancy applicant.
I have PCOS, and conceived on Fermara after 2.5 years of 'trying to conceive'. I have had three pregnancies before, the first resulted in my son, and the last two were miscarriage at 6 weeks (first eptopic, second missed miscarriage).
Because I have PCOS, I am also on 400 mg of Progesterone supplements to sustain the hormone to hopefully give this pregnancy a fighting chance.
I am now concerned because I have started spotting.
It started yesterday after going to the bathroom. It wasn't alot, but it was enough to make me freak. We went to the hospital right after it happened, and they checked and drew blood.
The E.R doctor said everything seemed ok, the bleeding had stopped, and my HCG level is still rising.
I am still concerned because I have been experiencing cramps, and lower back pain. They come and go, but because of my high risk situation I can't help but be paranoid that something will go wrong.
This afternoon, around the same time as yesterday, there was a little amount of blood spotting, and cramps.
Has anyone been high risk, had spotted, and still have a successful pregnancy?
I am always waiting for the second shoe to drop, and I can't help but feel that a miscarriage is inevitable. I feel like I lucked out yesterday, but then my mind looms to the fact I still have another 6 weeks until I am technically in the clear (if that). I'm scared that it'll happen at 11 weeks or in another insanely unexpected situation.
Any encouraging stories, or information of any kind would help!
