I lost the baby tonight. I started bleeding bright red and I had some pee from this morning (that I hadn't tested) and I tested it and the HPT was totally negative.

The only "good" thing about this is that I'm glad it happened now rather than me getting further along like I did last time.

I'm sad, but I know I'll get through this. We will keep trying and I will have another baby someday, one way or another.

I'm not sure if there is something wrong with my progesterone, if this could be because I'm breastfeeding, or if it's just "one of those things" so I am not really sure what to do for next time. I sure wish I knew so I don't have to go through this again. I never thought I'd have 3 pregnancies and only one baby. After Matthew, I was hoping that I'd put pregnancy loss behind me.

I told my Dh in the car, "I guess things are never easy for us, huh?"

I was looking out the window on the way home at the clouds and remembering something from a blog I was reading the other day of a woman whose baby died shortly after birth from genetic problems. "God is still the same as he was yesterday." So I trust in that and I am so thankful for the little boy I snuggled tonight and even though things are not easy they are worth it.

So sooner or later it will happen for us. It just hurts that it can't be now and it can't be this baby.

Shannon,
I'm so sorry for another loss for you. I know you were waiting on beta and progesterone numbers. I hope that can give you some information to know what happened. Even if you know what happened, it doesn't make it any less sad. I'm praying for you.

Thanks ladies. Apparently at 13 dpo (or thereabouts) my hcg was 15 and progesterone was 6. My OB said it was a chemical pg and there was something wrong genetically, b/c that's a very low hcg. She said the prog. was low probably just because the hcg was so low but that next time we'll do progesterone supplemnts right away and then monitor to make sure the pregnancy is "taking".

In a way it makes me feel a little better that there was probably nothing I could do to save this pregnancy, it just wasn't meant to be.

I'm so sorry Shannon. I'm glad they will start you on supplements right away next time. Hopefully that will make the baby extra sticky. You are in my t&p.
