    Unhappy Out of nowhere (pg/mc ment)

    I just found out on Friday that I'm pregnant, after finally breaking down and going to see a doctor about why I've been spotting between periods the last couple of months. It makes no sense, because while I missed my August period, I've had three since then. My doctor said that it looks like the bleeding is because I'm having another miscarriage. Part of me is hoping beyond all hope that it's not true, but the more rational part of me knows that it's the most logical explanation for the bleeding.

    It's so hard to wait until tomorrow to get the results back from my first quantitative hcg draw. I am just beside myself with worry, and I have to play it off to the people close to me, because none of them know that I'm pregnant.

    Just because you are spotting/bleeding doesn't mean you are having a miscarriage. Many women experience it during pregnancy. HCG levels is a definate way to know....your numbers should double every 48 hour, or so. You'll need to do another HCG draw again to see the comparison in numbers.

    I know what you are going through. When we found out I was pregnant, I started spotting soon after.....we didn't tell anyone and still haven't that I m/c. I hope this isn't the case for you, there are several reasons why you could be spotting....could be implantation spotting.

    Hope all goes well tomorrow.

    I know it is hard, but try to relax until you get the results back from the blood work. I am sending tons of prayers and sticky vibes. Please keep us posted.

    So, I got my blood test back this morning, and now after I've been agonizing all weekend, they're telling me it was a false positive. Which doesn't explain two months of bleeding at all. Still, the whole ordeal just dredged up the same feelings from three years ago, when I miscarried previously.

    I wish I could say the emotional roller coaster ride is over, but I know better. >.>

    I just wanted to send you a hug of support. I can't even imagine what this type of news was like, and I've never heard of a false positive. There are so many different types of pregnanices, and I'm sure your're overwhlemed with this news.

    We all got tickest on that roller coaster, and I too wish I could get off the ride. It's unfortunately, dizzying and crazy, but at least we're on it together. You are not alone, and you have every right to feel however you feel about all this.

    Hang in there.

    I'm so sorry for what you're going through.

    No advice, just hugs.
