Saturday, 6 weeks 3 days. We made it this far.

However, I have been using the progesterone cream and my temps are still barely high, so without it I feel sure they would be below the cover line now. That's not good.

I am also still not spotting or bleeding yet, but my tummy feels....weird. Familiar weird, if that makes sense! I remember all too keenly our losses in '09, and this has that odd feeling interspersed with twinges and mild cramps all day that our second loss (the early mc) had for days. I remember feeling like someone was flossing my bellybutton at one point.

I have been praying, while feeling oddly numb as I am already grieving this baby, that God would be merciful, change His mind, and make this one live and stick. Maybe even inspire life back into my baby and bring it to term. I know He could if He chose.

The only thing I can say right now, ladies, is that my faith in God is not shaken. I don't know if some of you can relate or might appreciate reading this, and I hope nobody is offended. I am a Christian and I KNOW my God. He is good. This does not change His goodness, His faithfulness to me. There is a verse at the end of Job that I hold to in the last year: Though He may slay me, yet I will trust Him. I never used to be able to say that with honesty before our previous losses, and I know I am not fully honest in my heart when I say it now, but I mean it with all my ability. I give God glory for His mercy, His compassion, His presence with me, His provision in giving me my husband to cling to and hide in, my mother-in-law who I have known most of my life and trust well even though my own mum is in the UK and can't be with me. The finances to make it through this without being crushed in that way. The life of this world may crush and devastate me, but I am slowly learning how to seek my hope in Christ, the God of heaven, and to look past this life and pour it out at His feet in times when I am acutely aware of my pain.

UPDATE: Sunday, 6wks 4d.

Made it this far! Yesterday had light tan-color spotting all day, enough to wear a liner but not enough to fill it. Hoping that's all the spotting we see.

Abdomen feels like a taut water balloon. It's actually even pushed out a little in the last few days. No cramping in a squeeze-release type of way, but feels very...full, tight, sometimes twinges in places. Praying that this is all symptomatic of a growing, healthy baby.

Progesterone blood test tomorrow. Don't know what this will tell us, but hoping it might prove good, or at least fixable. Am now taking vitex as well as using progesterone cream. Morning temps are higher than 4 days ago, but still not as high as I hoped they would be. Not going to have an ultrasound unless I still haven't miscarried in another week or so.

Still have all other normal pg symptoms. Tiredness, thirst, frequent urination, sore bbs. Again, hoping these bode well, as I continued to have symptoms with previous 2 losses right up until the end.

Im praying for you, and I love what you wrote its so true. I go through my battles worrying about if/when I do get pg again since I already had 2 losses last year, but I must keep my faith and know he is in control.

Monday morning, 5.30am. Still no spotting or bleeding, same tightness in abdomen rather than cramping and my tummy seems larger than it did 4-5 days ago. I am starting to need to urinate less frequently than before.

My temps have been in a steady decline despite best efforts. Friday through this morning (Monday) they are:
98.4
97.8
97.7
97.6

I am torn between thinking we are merely delaying the inevitable and I should give up, and thinking that there is still a viable baby I want to save in spite of what seems might be my hormone deficiency.

Is there any way they would do a sonogram? I mean, at this point (you are in the 6 week-range, right?) they should see a heartbeat and if not yet, at least a sack and fetal pole. I would think that it would be better to know where to go. I don't know how you are staying sane!! I would be nuts by now with all that waiting. I would ask if they are willing to see what is going on. Or at least draw a beta with progesterone too. That should tell you where you stand in both respects. I really, really hope everything works out okay. I know how it feels to be "waiting for the end."

Well, I haven't seen an OB for this pregnancy at this point, so ultrasounds right now are out. I admit, though, that I have thought about it, and am kinda wishing we could just do one today... Not possible to get scheduled in so quickly though. Honey and I did agree that we would wait and see how this week goes. If I've not lost baby by the end of this week and am starting my 8th week of pregnancy (Thursday), then we might think about ordering a sonogram somewhere.

I do feel like I'm going nuts! I work part time, mornings, and my order only just came in (6.50 AM, West coast) to my email for printing. The blood test order, that is. But we don't have a printer at home so I will have to go to either the in-laws house (if they're even awake) or the family store to print before heading to LabCorp. Before the order finally came in 3 minutes ago, I was thinking I don't even want to go to work today, which my husband thinks is silly. But work for a lot of people seems to provide distraction, and with something as emotionally bound up as this is it won't provide any relief for me at all! Getting through Friday last week was so tough. Now we have the order, I am probably going to tell work I'm coming in an hour or so late, so I can get the blood drawn first. Honey still thinks I should just wait to do that this afternoon, but he's understanding at the same time.

I dont know what you will choose to do, but if it were me I would get the blood work done first, tell work I will be late or even call in sick and stay home and relax. I went through 2 losses last year and for me I couldnt get mind straight enough to do anything, im in school and had to ask them to let me make up homework so I wouldnt fail my classes, luckly I didnt fail any of them and even had good grades, but it was still hard, all I wanted to do was pray and think about it all. But anyways, I would get it done this morning so that way you will have the results quicker, is there a chance an OB will give you progesterone pills? Still prayng for you!

If my results show low progesterone, my midwife works with a couple of people who can likely prescribe me something if she and they think it would help, without my having to go do it again with an OB. Hoping against hope, praying, that this baby will live and all I need is just some prescription I could get in a couple of days, and then we'll be fine.

that's what I've decided to do. It's almost 8 now and I'm going straight to LabCorp to get blood test done. I want results asap. I've told work I'll be an hour or two late, hopefully I'll be calmer after getting this done and I will be able to cover reception during lunches for 3 hours and not lose my full day.

Thanks for all the prayers! Needing it, for sure!

Keep trusting in God, and whatever happens He is with you and will work all things together for the good. I hope that doesn't sound like a pat answer. It's just that i know you need to believe that right now, but it's very hard when you are going through it.
Praying for this baby and for you. Keep us posted!
