Hey Ladies,
I haven't been around much because it's been a rough couple of days. Last Friday I had some brown spotting. I tried not to worry about it too much because I have read that it's normal. On Monday I decided to call my doctor just for reassurance. They told me to come in and they would check everything out. Before I went, I had some pinkish spotting so by then I was really upset. I ended up getting my blood drawn to check my HCG levels and I had an ultrasound.

Everything on the ultrasound looked good. The doctor saw a 5w5d gestational sac and the beginning of a yolk sac. There was no fetal pole and no heartbeat detected yet. They told me this is perfectly and right on schedule with how far along I am so I was feeling pretty good.

Later that day I got my HCG levels back and they were below normal. My doctor said the ultrasound results were very reassuring but the HCG levels are not reassuring at all.

I'll go back on Tuesday for a follow up ultrasound. My doctor doesn't want to do another HCG check because she said that once the pregnancy has been established as a normal intrauterine pregnancy, there is no need to continue with the HCG tests. She said ultrasound is a much more conclusive way to monitor the health of the pregnancy.

Needless to say, I am terrified that miscarriage is imminent and I'm so upset that I have to wait so long to know anything. I'm still having the same symptoms and they seem to be getting stronger, but I can't stop thinking about the low levels. I haven't had any more spotting and no cramping (besides a bit of pulling which I already had) so I'm hoping that's a good sign.

Anyway- I just wanted to give you an update of what I've been MIA. Yesterday was really rough for me and I just couldn't even think about baby stuff without bawling. Today, I'm feeling a little more optimistic and I know that I will be okay no matter what.

That being said I would appreciate thoughts and prayers. I do believe in the power of prayer and I'll take as many as I can get! Thanks for reading if you made it this far!

I am in the same situation as you minus the reassurance of the ultrasound. I hope we both go on to experience uneventful pregnancies! I'll be praying for you.
