So I woke up yesterday to brownish red bleeding. I called my doctors office and talked to the nurse and said to monitor the bleeding and to call back if it got worse or if i started cramping. Well, the bleeding eventually tapered off to barely anything. I went to bed thinking it was done and I had nothing to worry about.....Woke up this morning and I'm bleeding again. It's red this time. I'm trying not to freak out.....
I called my docs office again, and I'm now waiting for the nurse to call me back.
I'm not really cramping, but I feel "something"....not sure if I want to call it cramps. Hopefully they have me come in today, I'm going crazy. If you're a praying person, could you please say a prayer for me. I'll update as soon as i know anything.
The nurse called and told me to come in and get some blood work done. They are checking my betas I guess?? They want to see where my levels are and if they are where they should be. I had my blood drawn yesterday and am waiting to hear from them. I have to go in again tomorrow (Friday) and get my blood drawn again to see if my levels are doing what they should be doing.
As for my bleeding.....its a light brown, no more red. I feel sore in my uterine area. I don't know if thats cramping or not. I'm so scared. I don't know what to think. I don't know why I'm bleeding and my doctor is being stubborn and won't give me an ultrasound. I need some reassurance that I'm okay.....that my baby is okay. I can't lose another baby
I will update again when I hear anything......
Well, my doctors office finally called. (So frustrated with them by the way) My beta number was 49,261....I little low for 11 weeks don't ya think?! I'm not holding out much hope.....I have an ultrasound scheduled for tomorrow at 12:30.
Last I checked, there was little to no bleeding, but I've been having some slight cramping.
I've never had my betas done, so I don't know what they were previous to this number. I do know that they start going back down as soon as the placenta takes over. I also know that once the placenta takes over, your pregnancy symptoms go away and mine went away last week....maybe a touch before then. So maybe, my numbers are low because they are on the decline now?? You think?? I hope so.....I want this baby
As for my doctor, I think they were making sure that my numbers were high enough to be able to actually see anything on the ultrasound....I think they were unsure of my dates. I haven't even been in to see my doctor yet (first appointment is on monday), so that may be why they didn't want to order an ultrasound. They didn't want me going in and not seeing NOTHING. I dunno know....they made me mad.
Will update again when I know anything else.
Sorry this took so long.....
I went to my ultrasound, also had my blood drawn again. Everything looked good on the ultrasound. I got scared at first because I didn't immediately see that little flicker of a heartbeat nor did I see it move. The u/s tech eventually slowed down enough for me to see the little peanut move. I almost cried. Also got to see the heartbeat eventually too.....it was beautiful.
The u/s tech didn't say as much, but I do believe I'm only about 10 1/2 weeks.....so about a week behind. Not sure though, I'm just going by the measurements i saw showing up on the screen. I have to wait to see my doctor on monday. They also called about my blood work and said everything looked good....I didn't get any numbers though, i'll ask for those on monday too.
As for my bleeding, I'm still spotting occasionally, but not constantly like before. So thats good. Cramping also stopped.
I'll update again after my doctors appointment on Monday Thanks for the prayers and thoughts ladies, it means a lot to me!
