Things were going so well, and I guess maybe I spoke too soon. This morning as I was getting ready to go for my blood draw, I went to the bathroom and I had some dark red mucousy blood. Needless to say, I figured it was all over and I took my shower and bawled.

Well, it's been several hours and now I haven't had a hint of anything since then. I went ahead and went to the blood draw, can't hurt to know what my numbers are at this point. I have my second draw on Monday, hopefully I make it to then.

I'm trying to stay positive, but it's so hard. I'm scared I'm going to lose this one, too. And then there will be no more trying for at least 7 or 8 months because dh is deploying soon. But I don't know what could be wrong with me to have two pg's be fine and now all of a sudden things aren't right.

I hate feeling so helpless.

Stay positive! Hopefully the bleeding is nothing. You will be in my thoughts. Take care and lots of hugs.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear this. Try to hang in there and stay calm - it might be nothing. A lot of women spot and go on to have perfectly healthy little babies. :-)

Try to stay positive I know it can be so hard to do that though. I will keep you and your baby in my thoughts and prayers.

With this pregnancy I had some small amounts of bleeding in the early weeks (When it first happened I was sure I was losing the baby) and I still have periodic spotting, but everything is still going good. Keep positive.

Thanks everyone, I'm trying to stay positive as I wait to hear from my Dr. this weekend on the first numbers. I go Monday for my second test.

I'm just hating the waiting game, trying to count my symptoms, wishing they were worse.

I appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers, I didn't think I would be such a basket case, but I guess I sure have turned into one.

You wouldn't be normal if you weren't being a basket case. It's very scary, especially after a loss to have any amount of spotting/bleeding. The waiting is the hardest, but it's amazing how quickly time does go by. Hang in there, try to think about good things so that you don't stress yourself out.

I had bloody/mucusy discharge at first too. It would happen the day after DH an bd'd. Have you bd'd recently? That could be part of it. My Dr. told me that it happens a lot.

Update 12/19

My Dr. finally called with the numbers from my beta. My numbers were drawn Friday and again Monday morning (not quite 72 hours apart).

Friday's test was: 4,780
Monday's test was: 8,649

So, Doc told me to relax and that things looked good as far as numbers. He is going to schedule either another test or u/s and call me back. He wants to put my mind at ease, as much as he can, and get a looksee for himself, lol.

I just wanted to thank you girls for all your support and kind words, it means a lot!

Your numbers look fine, a lot better than mine did, thats for sure. But my dr told me to never get hung up on the numbers and thankfully he was right.

I spotted and cramped the entire first trimester. It started out brown, then streaky pink, then red- I thought for sure I was doomed, but I am looking at the cutest little girl right now (who happens to be sleeping-yea!) and all those worries were just paranoia!

Hang in there and take it easy. I would suggest no sex, that what was suggested to me and it worked! (Plus it was a good excuse to DH to leave me alone!)

Glad to hear that your numbers are looking good! I'm sure it must be a huge relief to know that things are looking good (although I know that doesn't take the stres away entirely).

Lots of sticky vibes.

Cindy
