I've had really bad cramps all day and started bleeding this afternoon, so I'm pretty sure I'm out this month. Wishing you all the best!
I've been poking around here a bit, and I've already noticed that a lot of you are familiar faces! On one hand, that's nice, but on the other, that means we've all been on this journey longer than we wanted to be.
DH and I started TTC in June 2012. We wanted to get a bit of a head start even though we weren't getting married until September. We were surprised and thrilled when we got our first BFP at the beginning of August! I was so happy, even though I felt like crap on our wedding day, and our honeymoon was a bit of a downer because I was so tired and feeling sick. I spotted from the very beginning, which I tried to shrug off, but it was just an early sign that things weren't meant to be. On September 10, the ultrasound showed two empty sacs measuring 6 weeks, and I was scheduled for a D&C as the doctors suspected that it may have been a molar pregnancy. To my relief, it wasn't, but I had a very rough recovery (physically) which dragged on into November. We finally got the green light to TTC again.
So, here we are again with another BFP, but I can't shake this worry! Next Thursday is what would have been our EDD from the last pregnancy. I've already been for one beta (last Friday), which came back at 20. I went for another today which I'll probably get results from tomorrow. I'm preparing for bad news, but hoping for the best. I thought we were off to a good start with no spotting, but sure enough, it started today. I'm trying not to get too excited, but it's so hard! I hope that the spotting dwindles off and that we see what we should at this point on our ultrasound next Tuesday.
I really hope that I get to stay here with you ladies, it'd be nice to finally have a BB that I can stick with!
Wishing all of you with your BPS a HH9M, and to everyone who is still waiting, I hope that you get your BFP soon!
I hope the spotting stops for you and your 2nd beta is good.

Awe, Jessica I know what you are going through. In August 2010 I was 9 wks when I started spotting. And had to have a d&c at 12 weeks. I lost twins. It was the most difficult thing I've ever been through. After that it took us 10 long months to concieve again, but God gsve us a beautiful little boy in February 2012 (he was our 3rd son). Now that I am pregnant again, I can't help but worry. It is so hard once you've been through losing a baby. Hang in there, I pray all will be ok!
So excited for you Jessica!! I'm so sorry to hear about your losses! Sounds very similar to my blighted ovum. I hope this is your sticky take home baby and that you get to stick around for the long haul!! So thrilled to have you here!!
Hey honey. I'm stalking you a bit
I'm so excited for you!! Even though it sucks, the worry is totally normal after a loss. Try to let yourself be happy, even though that's much easier said than done! I hope everything goes perfectly for you this time!
I'm glad your first beta came back positive!!! Can't wait to see the next one. Hope you have great doubling numbers!!!
Oh Jessica!! I'm so sorry to hear this!! I was hoping you were updating with a great beta #. I hope that you're wrong and that it's just an irritation or something. Hugs!!
