I had some awful cramping on Wednesday that felt oddly similar to the cramping I had before my first miscarriage (a short three months ago) so I called my OB, who urged me to go to the ER. I went, and after six hours, had a sono, physical exam and blood work and we got a little surprise. Everything was peachy keen, HB was 134 and I am measuring 7 weeks 4 days (then, and I was thought to be 6 weeks 5 days). So as far as I know now, little bean is as healthy as ever, and I'm now 7 weeks 6 days. I've jumped almost a whole week! But, on our way to the hospital and throughout the waiting, I'd basically accepted that I was probably walking out of that ER with an appointment for a D&C. I'd just lost all hope when those cramps hit. And I realised, "What am I supposed to do if we lose this baby? What about the people who don't know? Should I pretend nothing happened, or go 'Oh, I was pregnant, sorry we didn't tell you, anyway, we miscarried.'?" I decided after that, if the news is good at the sono on Monday morning, we're telling everyone then. I'm not waiting for a loss anymore. Long story short, it was scary, but baby is fine and we're spilling the beans on monday.

Thanks everyone! I'm sure as soon as we get home on Monday I'll be posting the ultrasound pics and family reactions! Plus, I just found out my friend and neighbor just got an unexpected BFP, so it'll be fun for both of us to have someone nearby. I love having you ladies and my due date club, but it's fun to talk to someone I know face to face, too. YAY BABIES!

I am glad that you and the baby are ok! I just want to say that my major symptom the whole first trimester was severe cramping. It is also a normal symptom.
