I just recently went to the doctor because I've been bleeding non-stop (albeit lightly) for the last month from the lady area. This happened to me about two years ago, and it ended up just being a problem with my birth control, so I went in thinking nothing of it. They drew some blood to test me for anemia and that was that. No mention of pregnancy.
Yesterday the doctor called me back to tell me that I was not anemic. (yay!) but that I was pregnant. He then asked if I was still bleeding, and well. I am. With some minor cramping. The doctor then told me I'm at high risk? and I need to see the gyno right away. I already made me appointment, but it's not until the first.
The father has been ignoring me for about a week now, though to be honest he had some abusive tendencies during our year and half long relationship.
Still, I want him by my side on this. I don't want to make the decisions alone, I dont want to be at the doctor's office alone.
I want the bleeding to stop.
Looking back I feel kind of dumb. The last week I've been throwing up a lot and my friends kept jokingly telling me I was pregnant. My friend gave me a hug and I quickly complained how my breasts were tender. Hah. I really should have known, but I had no clue.
I don't know what to do.
What I want to do.
And the doctor made it seem like I should be very worried that I've been bleeding for so long.
Is it possible it's still alive? And if so, healthy?
Should I not bother getting attached to it?
I bled for two and a half weeks before and after I found out that I was pregnant -shrug- after finding out that I was pregnant (about two weeks in) I did relax and try to stay off of my feet for a little bit.. but I was so naive that I never really realized that it was a bad sign that I was bleeding.
I, too, was bleeding very lightly.. though at times it was much heavier and (tmi) had some good ol chunks in it. I was even wearing pads and tampons.. it just never occured to me that I could possibly be pregnant as my husband and I had had sex maybe ONCE that whole month and I was on BC.
I can tell you that I, personally, am perfectly fine. My baby is kicking the CRAP out of my uterus as I type = ) I'd definitely say to call your OBGYN and explain. They will get you in asap. Like today. Or tomorrow. It is definitely worth the visit to, at the very least, understand what is going on. They will be able to give you a MUCH better view of whether or not to be worried. Good luck, and keep us updated.
If I were in your shoes I would definately be resting A LOT until you get to the doctor's... in the meantime, why don't you check out the high risk board?? The ladies there may be able to help you out...
