Feeling better

So, I've had no spotting at all this weekend. Not a touch of blood except for that minuscule streak on the toilet paper yesterday morning. I'm definitely feeling better and trying to remind myself that natural miscarriage is NOT my body's usual m.o.

The blood did make me think of the hematoma that I had the last time I was pregnant. The blood could be a sign that I have developed one this time too. Hopefully that's not the case. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

I have my first ultrasound coming up a week from Monday. I'm not having any bloodwork drawn prior to that. My new doctor (who I haven't met yet) doesn't usually do bloodwork for RPL (recurrent pregnancy loss), as a matter of course, and generally just has people come in for a 6 week u/s. If I had gotten a late positive on an HPT or had any reason to worry that my numbers weren't rising as they should be, I would have insisted, but I really wasn't too worried about that aspect of it and I just prefer to enjoy my two weeks of pregnancy without the stress of waiting all day for beta results.

So glad you are feeling better. I haven't had anymore spotting since this morning either and trying to remain positive until my next u/s on Tues. Hope the time goes fast for you until your u/s!!

I'm glad that you're feeling better now. I wish you didn't have to worry so much with your pregnancies. I hope you gain some piece of mind after your u/s.

Good to hear you're feeling better. Hopefully you don't have a hematoma. I have an u/s scheduled for the 30th. That feels like so far away, but my doctor is still having me do weekly blood draws. I do worry about my numbers going up, since I have had problems with that in the past.

Good luck, and enjoy the next two weeks!

Glad you feel better! If you want to laugh, I thought I was spotting recently. It turned out to be spotting all right - from some irritated stubble from shaving. So embarassing. So the moral of my dumb story is that it's not always what you might worry about it actually being! Good luck, I'll be thinking of you and checking for updated!
