The spotting/bleeding won't stop. :(
By themasuokas » Posted Aug. 3, 2011 10:40am - 409 views - 6 comments

Oh guys - this sucks!! The bleeding and spotting haven't stopped, and the blood is anywhere between dark brown to bright red. I wish a doctor could just tell me if everything was normal...but they can't. They err on the side of caution and tell me it's not looking good - even though baby still has a strong heartbeat and is growing like a weed. I wish it were 6 months from now already. :(

On top of it I feel like an emotional wreck...which is hard, because I pride myself in always being positive, and looking on the bright side of things...and having my emotions in check. Not the past couple of days. I've just wanted to cry.

Yesterday a thought hit me... What if I'm not ready to be a mother? What if I can't do it? I'm going to be responsible for a little life...holy crap, am I mature enough? Are WE ready? I guess we have to be...lol...but seriously - so many emotional thoughts rushing my mind, I needed to take today off. Get away from work...just need to clear my mind and come back to my senses. Breaking down at work and crying isn't the most professional thing to do right now. ;)

I'm being through exactly the same... I'm 5w4d pregnant and started spotting last tuesday. I had an U/S immediately which showed the baby was fine, although the chorion is thin and irregular. My gyn told me to have a rest but then spotting turned into bleeding and I had another emergency U/S and it shows that the baby is still there, yet the bleeding won't stop... I was given some hormons (progesterone) and was told to stay in bed. I''m freaking out...

Perfectly normal to be a wreck considering what you are going through - most people would be. Cry as much as you need to.
I'm so sorry you're going through this - I'm keeping everything crossed for you.
As regards what dreamy said - I too know of a gril who unknowingly was carrying fraternal twins (2 separate sacs). She had a lot of unexplained bleeding like you, and it turned out she miscarried one of the twins but the other one is still in there safe and sound.

lol.... it's been a good solid week. :) From spotting to full on bleeding bright red. Wish baby would stop pushing buttons and pulling on things in there!

How long have you been bleeding? I'm so sorry, I would be a wreck too - don't be so hard on yourself - go ahead and cry at work!!!! That's what bathrooms are for .....
