    Unhappy Confused - PG MENT

    Hi everyone,

    This is my first post. Actually to all who read this, you are among the first to know I am (or possibly, was) pregnant. I think I'm looking for support and some insight from other women who know what I am feeling.

    My husband and I have only been married since July. Imagine our surprise when we started to realize we were pregnant! And that was just last week. We went from scared and unsure to excitedly planning how to tell others. We've only told a handful of people. We were going to announce it to the rest of the family at Christmas with "Merry Christmas Grandma/ Grandpa/ Aunt/ Uncle" cards.

    We are the first in our friends to be pregnant as well. So all of this seems so new to us. It's amazing how quickly the excitement builds though.

    Last night, however, I started to notice that some of my signs of pregnancy were lessening. My breasts don't seem as tender and swollen. I'm not as nasaeous. And I can tell my cervix is open to the touch.

    This morning I woke up with more cramping in my lower abdominal area. I had some light bleeding as well. The cramping continues even now. But the bleeding has stopped.

    I've made it to work but all I want to do is cry. I am scared and uncertain of what is happening. I know some of this can be normal in a healthy pregnancy, but I fear for the worst right now.

    Can anyone give me some insight or thoughts? I would greatly appreciate it.

    Just an update...

    The cramping has continued and there was more blood. It was more like a clot. I'm waiting for my husband to come home so we can go to the doctor together.

    Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers.

    We ended up going to the ER since I haven't seen a dr. yet (I'm new to the area - first apt. was set for Dec. 19). We were seen right away. They did blood and urine tests, a pelvic exam, and ultrasounds. The doctor and nurses were so wonderful with us and listened to everything we said and even cried with me.

    We were able to see the little heart beating at just 75 bpm. That combined with my cramping and bleeding, points to a threatened miscarriage. They have no idea how long it's going to take. Just that this little one isn't going to make it.

    My heart is so broken. We finally told our parents and friends. They've been very supportive. My birthday was just Wednesday... this is one that I will never forget.

    All I want to do right now is cry and hold my baby. I'll just keep praying and waiting for the Lord to help me.

    Thanks again. I really appreciate having a place to come and share all of this.

    Just talked to the dr. I have an apt with on the 19th.

    She called and was so nice. She listened to me and asked questions and offered support. She said she suspects it will pass this week. I'll meet with her on Monday and we'll know more then.

    Until then I am praying my little baby knows he/she is loved and wanted and covered in God's grace.

    I just keep crying today. That's about all I'm good for right now.
