First Trimester

The pain is setting in

Its amazing, such a wonderful and awesome experiance to be part of creating another human and yet its riddled with pain, well God did say it would as per
Genesis 3:16
To the woman He said: “I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; In pain you shall bring forth children; Your desire shall be for your husband, And he shall rule over you.”

My feet hurt and feel swollen, tummy has perpetual tummy cramps and why am I still spoting blood every now and then?

All I can do is just keep the faith, think positive and do my part.

So, today, thus far I've had

hoping to be with child again

Early Ultrasound Results

Dear Midwife,
I had my first ultrasound today. I'm not sure how pregnant I am. My last period was Nov 5th, but I have 35 day cycles, so I'm roughly 5 weeks. The doctor saw the gestational sac, but nothing else during today's sonogram.

Should I be concerned we didn't see a yolk sac or a baby at this stage? I'm a first time mom and very anxious.


Progesterone Suppository & Bleeding

Dear Midwife,
I am 5 weeks pregnant and have been on progesterone suppositories since my IUI procedures.

This morning I noticed grey/brown spotting with a little red mixed in. The amount was fairly small, just enough to partially fill a small panty liner. My RE said he didn't think it was anything to worry about and to just take it easy today.

While I trust my RE, I'm still very scared that I am about to miscarry again. Other than M/C, what could cause bleeding like this?
