    Default Now its just a waiting game...

    today i spent the day the mercy ed waiting to hear whether i was losing baby. I've had bad cramping all day and varying between light and moderate bleeding. I had a lovely doctor do an exam *cringes* and all she could tell me, that my cervix was still closed but i have to wait until thursday for an appointment to have an ultrasound to confirm the pregnancy is still viable.

    While sitting in waiting the waiting room they gave me a flyer to read, the line: "half of all early pregnancies that experience bleeding will end in miscarriage"
    My stomach hit the floor. I was hopeful that because they hadn't sent me for an ultrasound today, that it was a good sign. The lovely doctor however told me that it wasn't the case, while very sad, if i'm losing the baby there's nothing they can do to stop it, so i get the ultrasound when they can fit me in.

    I'm just a mixture of emotions. I haven't been taking very good care of myself lately because DH health issues, chasing DS around while balancing full time work and house work. Is this my fault? Is this just one of those things that wasnt meant to be? I'm trying to be positive and not think the worst, i just want to know either way, i'm on this grief/hope rollercoaster and its making me sick inside.

    Its just a waiting game now, thursday 9am is not going to come fast enough

    It is nothing you have done some babies are abnormal and are not meant for this world I have lost 3 bubs and know how hard it is. I really hope everything works out for you. Did they do blood test? Usually get a good indication of what's going on from the levels.

    Yeh they took bloods today and will on thursday to make sure they are increasing normally. I can't stop stressing and I'm starting to get frustrated at DH hovering. I know he's concerned but it's driving me crazy

    Hugs for you but I will say this. I am in my 7th pregnancy right now. Early days yet but I have lost 3 babies and my first signs of miscarriage for two was an ultrasound and the second was going into labor at 16 weeks.
    HOWEVER I bled with all three of my sons who are alive and well. My youngest son I bleed for at least 2 weeks. So don't give up yet, stay strong xx

    Stay strong, bleeding and cramping doesn't mean that you will miscarry. I bled all the way through with dd3 and bled off and on with dd1, ds1, dd2. Try not to stress. I know that it is hard.
