Hello all. I am 30 and pregnant for the third time but we have no living children. I have been active on the Feb16 board and am currently about 7 weeks along.
Our first two losses were basically identical - happened at about 5.5w with bleeding, cramping - each natural. The first happened in Aug14 and the second in Nov14.
This is the furthest we have been in a pregnancy, have had an ultrasound and there was a heart beat. I am taking progesterone supplements daily - something they think caused our previous MCs (as other tests seemed to rule out chromosomal or autoimmune issues). However, today as well as two weeks ago, I have had some light bleeding.
Two weeks ago the doctor said it was likely implantation. Today they said to take it easy and drink lots of water. Each time it was the same - I didn't notice it until I wiped but when I did it covered the TP - it was more red than brown but darker than bright red. It was somewhat wet but mostly just appearing. It tapered off into light brown and eventually stopped.
Of course when that happened again this morning I was panicked. But as it faded I felt less worried. Then it happened again this afternoon and is now tapering off again.
Of course I think I am paying extra close attention but I swear I have had some light cramps/twinges/pressure. However, there has been no pain like what I felt in the previous losses. My other symptoms seem to have remained the same (sore breasts, hunger followed by no appetite, frequent unrination).
At this point I know it's just a waiting game. But I guess I just wanted to see if anyone else has had similar experiences or has any advice on waiting out the bleeding with less panic.
Thanks for letting me vent here. Other boards are helpful but I know this community knows acutely the fears I am feeling.
In case others wanted to hear positive outcomes - after an u/s yesterday everything looked great. Measuring on track and heat rate up to 161! They were not sure what caused the bleeding but they did say it was possible to bleed throughout. Trying to keep the positive thoughts rolling!
