Tonight I went to the ER because of some pretty bad lower right abdominal pain (appendix area). They did their usual, the doc came in and…I’m pregnant. They did the ultrasound and everything and it’s too early to see anything, but urine and blood tests both say I’m prego, so yeah.
Anyway, I’ve been pregnant before. Back in November, a week before Thanksgiving, we found out I was five weeks and I lost it. I know what everyone says; a lot of women miscarry and go on to have healthy babies, but I’m scared. It’s just sooo early and I’ve been having what feels like menstrual cramps lately, so I wonder if it might just pass too.

Early in my pregnancy with my DS, I had severe cramping, like stop-what-you’re-doing, doubled-over-in-pain type cramping. I don’t remember when it stopped, but definitely by the end of the first tri. I also had some spotting. DS is now a beautiful, healthy 6-month old! Congrats to you and best wishes for a safe and healthy 9 months 🙂

How far along are you? This is exciting! I know there’s fears but worrying won’t change the outcome, so you may as well enjoy each moment. Congratulations! 🙂

alliefly: That is so good to hear. Not that you had such painful cramping, but that you have a healthy, beautiful son. Thank you (:
Equine_Breeder: They honestly don’t know. It’s definitely a pregnancy, but they couldn’t even see baby yet. It makes me think I just conceived which is partially what worries me, because what if he egg just decides not to attach?

I miscarried at 8 weeks, and carried my next pregnancy to term without difficulty. Sometimes that crampy feeling is implantation, I think. I was scared until I heard a heartbeat, but my doctor was very reassuring, and gave me an internal ultrasound at my 8 week visit. I saw the little heartbeat then. I also had a normal pregnancy before the m/c. the m/c was my middle pregnancy.

marinesfiance: I don’t have much advice but I can tell you that the embryo has definitely implanted and has attached to the lining. Your body only begins producing hcg after implantation. Did the ER doc order follow-up blood tests to see how the hcg is rising? I know having repeat blood work helped ease my mind a bit.

Mrs.Sawyertobe: That’s what my pregnant friend said, but the pain was more intense than before, so it just worries me. Im glad to hear you had a healthy pregnancy, though! I feel like the weeks are gonna drag, I cant wait to (hopefully) find out my baby will be ok. I remember last time I was five weeks and I remember the ultrasound tech saying that theyre shouldve been a heartbeat but there wasn’t..then things began to go downhill. Hopefully thingswill be better this time.
JennB_82: oh, really? With my last pregnancy I found out i was pregnant and then had some cramping and light spotting which I was told was the implantation. Interesting. But anyway, yes I have to go back for blood work tonight and theyre having me see my actual obgyn tomorrow, so hopefully I’ll get some good news.
