Spent yesterday morning in the ER with the final diagnosis as a threatened miscarriage. My hormone levels and ultrasound both indicated that I'm about 5 weeks (although it's been 7 week since the start of my last pd). I'm supposed to go back to my dr. tomorrow as a follow up to see if my numbers have doubled or not which will indicate whether I am having a miscarriage. I'm trying to stay positive but it's such an incredibly devastating thing to go through. This is our first and we had just told his family on Sunday and were supposed to tell my parents yesterday. I ended up calling my mom and telling her about everything because I needed her support. I just hate that I couldn't tell her happier news and celebrate with my parents like we did with DH's family. I know there's a 50/50 chance that everything's ok, but I'm still bleeding like I'm on my pd and it's hard to imagine that my baby's ok when that's happening. This is just so hard...
***UPDATE: Thank you all for your love, thoughts, & prayers. We went to the dr. this morning and he confirmed that I had lost the baby. I'm scheduled for surgery tomorrow morning. I wish you all the best on your own pregnancies and am praying for healthy babies! :) Hopefully I'll be back on this forum soon. As my husband put it this morning: Heaven got a little bigger today.***
It's much easier said than done, but hang in there. I will be sending prayers and thoughts your way as you go through this very difficult time. Never lose hope or faith, often its the only thing we have to hold on to.
