First of all- I'm so sorry that this happened... Because I can imagine how incredibly scary it is. Secondly- this does not at all mean a miscarriage is starting to happen. Many many women have some brownish/pink discharge and everything is okay. It happens in so many normal pregnancies. Some women have it the entire time and give birth to a beautiful baby. If I were you I would definitely get tests tomorrow and test, but I would also call you care provider and ask for/demand an earlier appointment. If you're working with the same doctor that handled your miscarriage, he/she should understand how incredibly important it is to have reassurance from them ASAP. If they are in a practice and your own doctor can't see you soon, request to see a partner. If you're having severe cramps and the blood is very red with clots (sorry that's really descriptive) I've heard that's when it could be worrisome. Otherwise- see your doctor and I know everything has a very good chance of being okay.

When I went thru my miscarriage in November it was a missed miscarriage, there was no blood and even tho it didn't "feel" totally right to me it was a first pregnancy so I didn't see it coming. With my current pregnancy, I haven't had any spotting. (Because of my previous experience this isnt totally reassuring for me...) However I have a co-worker who was spotting quite a bit early on recently and her baby is A okay. She went in for a reassurance scan and there was the baby and the heart beating away. As hard as it is, try to stay calm, get in bed and rest. Watch a movie, put your feet up whatever you do to relax. Then call the doctor and test tomorrow. I'm so sorry, sending you love and thinking of you.

Thanks ray ray. I took a bath lisenend to meditation music and i feel a bit better. Your words are very helpful. Thank you for taking the time to respond. Im working with a new doc this time around and i just went to an urgent care clinic when i miscarried so i dont have a regular provider that would know my history well. Hopefully the new doc/ midwife is supportive. I dont think my first scan can be moved up any sooner. Its already set for six weeks and from what i understand thats about as early as you can see a baby.

I'm so sorry for the scare, Red, that's the last thing we want to see! I agree with Rayray though, it's probably fine. Even if you wouldn't be able to see anything on a scan yet, could you have them do bloods a few times and see if your hcg levels are increasing correctly? I don't want you to worry more than necessary though, so if it were me, if the spotting stopped (and no cramping or red blood) then I would probably breathe a sigh of relief, stay in bed for a day or two (for emotional wellbeing as much as anything) and wait for the scan. If it continues but doesn't get worse, maybe ask for hcg testing. But how you feel is very important to your and the baby's health, so do what you need to do!

You are totally right, usually early on there's not much to see. My first scan this time around on April 18th I was barely 5 weeks along and all my doctor pointed out was the gestational sac and the yolk sac. Which, was nice to see and was reassuring that there was a pregnancy happening- but no heartbeat so the two week wait between that appointment and the one I had where I did heart the HB was very hard. If you can, relax today. Don't do anything physical you don't have to do. I also agree with anchor that blood testing can be helpful because it will tell you what your HCG levels are and this early on in pregnancy I think that's the most important indicator. Hang in there, and remember as long as it's not severe cramping that interferes with your breathing or really red blood it's probably 100% normal. I still cramp sometimes and it makes me SO NERVOUS but we have to remember...our body is supporting life right now, so we are gonna feel it.

I have a doctor's appointment at 12:30 today. It will actually be my first with my new midwife. I was supposed to meet her for the first time on the 23rd. Le Sigh. Miscarriages suck. They mess with your head. I will let you know what they say.

It's awfully quiet here. I think that's my fault. I've been taking a break because there's only so many times I can tell ya'll that I'm freaking out. I still am though. I went almost 5 days without having a melt down but today I had too much time to think and yep....wound up in tears. My U/S isn't until Thursday but I'm not expecting good things. Time could not pass any slower.

How are you guys hanging in there?

Awww red. I'm so so sorry. I am so hopeful for you tho, and I honestly believe things will work out for the best with you. Even if things aren't starting off the way you'd hoped. I think everything will be okay.

AFM- just the pinching sensations are enough to make me crazy. It's not constant, it's not severe, and everything I read tells me it's just growing pains. All my other symptoms are still there. Nauseated sometimes but never extremely bad- really sore breasts etc. exhausted. I've been putting off calling my doctor which is what anchor advised me to do and I know I need to now. I think I will on Monday. The pinching isn't just in one spot- it moves around so that makes me calm down a little bit. I ordered a Doppler as well in hopes that being able to hear the heart will help calm my nerves in between appointments. How are you anchor?

Hang in there Red. I believe everything will be okay.

Oh anchor that's so exciting! Your success gives me hope. I just wish I heard more good stories about low betas working out. Most things I read wind up freaking me out more so I try not to read things. I did however poas today with diluted urine. I was hoping for the test line to be darker than the control line. It wasnt and I'm scared all over again. My darn hcg just needs to hurry up and rise already. Grrr. Ray ray once again thank you so much for believing in my baby. If it helps I think your stabbing pains don't mean much. Could it be gas? I believe hings are going to work out for you just fine.
