Well today i had an u/s because i've been having problems with bleeding off and on, its not hurting the baby but it still worries me. So Sunday night i was back in the ER told i was going to m/c since my levels we not high enough they were over 21,000. They didnt double so thats why he said that, i started crying and was just totally devastated. They did an u/s that night in the ER and we saw the heartbeat again and baby looked good, he set me up Monday for a follow up with a better machine. So i went to my u/s Monday and the baby looked great and the bleeding had pretty much stopped. Baby measured 6 weeks 5 days, which was up from Friday 6 weeks 1 days. So baby was growing right on target. Heartbeat was 134 which was up from Friday it was 130. So after going this whole week without bleeding, it started again last night this time its a little different, its more dark red, no cramping or anything. I told my RE this morning at my appt that the bleeding was back. They were doing an u/s today anyway so they said they would try and see again if they could find a reason for the bleeding. They did the u/s and our little boo was doing great, measured 7 weeks 4 days which is awesome and only 1 day behind now, and the heartbeat was 160! I was really excited and the bleeding slowed a little, but then tonight its seem to come back again, like a medium period flow, with a few clots now. I'm just at the point where i think this is over. They can't figure out whats causing it and everytime i go in the baby is ok, but i can't help but prepare myself for it to happen. I mean really how many woman bleed like this, i've heard of light pink and spotting off and on, but bleeding like a medium period flow. I'm so frustrated and confused about everything right now. I've already tried to prepare myself for the worst but i can't be fully prepared for it. I want this more than anything and i just wish this bleeding would stop and stay away. Please say a prayer for us ladies, cause i think we need all we can get right now. Well thats the update for now, i have an appt Tuesday with my Midwife so hopefully she will do another u/s to make sure things are still going good. I'll update again after the appt.
It's perfectly normal to be scared. I wish I could promise that this was it and that all was ok. However, sadly, that has been stolen from us. I don't think any of us will ever feel completely secure in a pregnancy. What I can do, is pray, pray hard for you and your little one. I can pray that all goes well and that this is it. I can pray that we all one day feel the happiness that comes with a healthy pregnancy. So that's what I will do. I will pray. For you, for all of us.
Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

As an RE will tell anyone, it's not normal to bleed during pregnancy, but it is common. You've had so many u/s a subchronic bleed should show one would think... You will definitely get into my thoughts and prayers tonight!
I will add I do know two people who had full periods up until month six of their pregnancy. One girl passed clots for 7 months! And her little guy is 8 and is as cute as can be! Keep your chin up hun!

thanks girls, it was only a few tiny clots and of course i had to inspect them lol and it was nothing other than blood. Its slowed down a little more since i've been laying down but its still very dark red. I'm just so tired physically and mentally going through all this, i just needed someone to tell my story too that can relate and understand. My RE really doesn't think i'm going to m/c but she said she can't rule it all the way out of course.
I'm so sorry you're going through all this, I can only imagine how much it is playing with your emotions. I'm super glad to hear your little bean was doing just fine on your ultrasound. I hope the bleeding stops for good SOON, so you can try to get on with things!!!
I can completely relate to what you are going through. Today I am 8w1d and I have been spotting for four weeks. Mine is brown and light, but it's there, every day. And every day I wonder if today is going to be the last day of my pregnancy. I wish I could have one pregnancy that's easy. It's just so frustrating and emotionally draining.
If it makes you feel better, I've inspected all my spoting/gunk too.
It's a great sign your baby continues to grow and the HB continues to get stronger. I will be praying for you two.
I myself spotted with my second and bleed with my third. They told me that it could be from the baby finally making a home in my uterus and all these different things. In the end, I had to two little ones.
I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers and hope you are blessed with a beautiful baby in about 7 months or so. Just hang in there. We're here for you.
I went back to the ER tonight after passing a pretty big clot and i found out that i have a Subchorionic Hematoma and thats whats causing the bleeding. I'm so pissed cause they have known since Monday and didn't say anything i was supposed to call for the results but i just thought i would wait till my appt Friday and they would tell me if anything was wrong and they didn't. Anyway they said it can still cause a m/c because of issues with blood flow to the baby but its not any higher a risk that you normally have with any pregnancy.
