How are things going? Any updates?
I’m so sorry you’re going through this.
If it is a miscarriage, often that can be a good thing since it’s your body’s natural way of flushing out whatever it needs to in order to then have a healthy pregnancy. I hear lots of women go on to have healthy pregnancies soon after miscarriage.
Either way, I’m thinking of you and hope everything’s alright.

sort of an update: I went again for a blood test yesterday morning and they STILL didn’t have the paperwork so I could get it done, and on top of that the lady told me she thinks my insurance isn’t going to cover the tests I already had completed.
So I am not going to have the third blood test, Darling Husband and I have decided to wait until our scheduled 7 week appointment with the doctor Tuesday December 20. It’s six days away and they should be able to say definitively from that ultrasound what is going on. If I keep having blood tests I will just keep freaking myself out.
I feel like I need to start the grieving process now and get it over with… but I know that won’t work, I know if we don’t see a heartbeat I’ll be ripped apart all over again. So trying to hold it together until I have a definite reason to grieve. What a Christmas this is turning out to be.

Ladies you are so wonderful.
My ultrasound was delayed until tomorrow auaauaauauauauauaugh
nothing seems to be going right with this process. The doctor was two hours late showing up to our 9 am appointment because he had two patients go into labor at the same time. I understand but still….. augh.
He did do an internal exam and my uterus “feels” like it is 7-8 weeks (right on target).
But we need to see the ultrasound to be sure.
He gave me the order to take to the clinic tomorrow (since that is when I will have time since everything was so late). On the diagnosis line it said “threatened abortion.”
That is the medical terminology for “possible miscarriage” even if the child is very much wanted. I wish they called it something else. Of course it is a disturbing word and even the technical medical meaning (miscarriage) is ugly. I felt so sick to my stomach driving into work with that paper on the seat next to me.

This has to have been the longest week for you and I am so sorry. Hopefully an ultrasound will give you the answers. It is the not knowing that has to be the worst. I wish there was some magic words that I could say to ease your mind, but all I can do is keep praying and put it in God’s hands. Remember, that when you look back and you see only one set of footprints, they are his carrying you.
