    Default Update on bleeding (poss m/c ment) - XP *Update in 1st Post!*

    So, this morning I had some more dark red spotting, so I called my OB and told them it was bleeding. I am sick and tired of "waiting", so they brought me in to see the doctor today. Doctor said everything was old blood, but I have a slow trickle, and labeled me a threatened miscarriage at this point. I had a beta level drawn today, and will have another one drawn on Thursday.

    Then I had an u/s this afternoon. We have a beautiful heartbeat of 126 bpm! I'm measuring 6w3d, about a day or so behind my EDD. Anyhow, we were so relieved to see the hb and thought all was well until my OB office called. Apparently the u/s was inconclusive at this point on whether or not the pregnancy is viable. The positive was a strong fetal hb and pole, and the fact that I'm measuring right on schedule, the not so positive was a "strange texture" at the bottom part of my uterus near the baby. The nurse said it was inconclusive at this point what it is, and we basically wait to see what my beta levels do on Thursday. Apparently it could be anything from a vanishing twin (I guess this is the good outcome), or that the baby didn't implant properly and that I will go on to m/c at some point.

    Anyhow, so no definitive answers at this point. I am so thrilled for a hb, but now I am scared to death something will happen to that little bean if it's not implanted like it should be. At this point, I'm pretty numb over this whole pregnancy. I feel completely exhausted and would just like to know one way or another.

    Thanks for listening.

    **Update!!** - Well, I just got my betas back from a little while ago, and they are going up, up, up! I was at 84,000 on Tuesday, and 109,000 yesterday!! So, no doubling, but they didn't expect that since my numbers were already so high. The nurse I talked to this morning said she's leaning towards vanishing twin since my numbers are so high for where I am gestationally, so that is good news! And they are very, very positive about this pregnancy, now! I'm a little bit relieved! But, I won't be totally happy until my next u/s, which is the 14th! I'll be 8w3d, and they're just going to check up on the baby's growth and the bleed in there.

    So yay for climbing numbers!

    I'm sorry you didn't get better news. But, I'm so glad the baby looks good so far. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you.

    I know nothing will ease your mind but try to stay positive you have a HB!

    I'm glad to hear there's a heartbeat and pole! I'll be thinking of you often and hope everything goes well. Hopefully you'll get some good news on Thursday.

    I'm sorry, I can only imagine how tough that must be to not know one way or the other. Lots of Ts & Ps for you.

    I'm so sorry to see this today... I really, really hope the bean sticks. I know exactly what you're going through and have been through it twice myself, once with a good outcome and once with a bad outcome. So either way, if you need to vent about it, I totally understand and am here to listen.

    I hope the next beta brings you good news.

    Thanks everyone! I really appreciate all your positive thoughts and vibes and prayers.

    I had my second beta drawn today, so we will know if my numbers are climbing tomorrow morning. I got my results (for the sake of curiosity) from Tuesday, and they were 84,000! I didn't think much of it, since I don't know too much about beta levels, until I popped it into betabase and I am waaaaay over the normal range for 6 weeks (1000-56,000)! Yikes. So, at least it's not LOW! But that is super high! I guess we'll see what tomorrow brings.

    Lots of positive thoughts for climbing numbers!

    Well if a vanishing twin could be a potential cause of everything maybe that's why the numbers are so high! It would make sense. Either way I have EVERYTHING crossed that you get through all this and have a healthy happy bean!
