Hi all. I just need to get this out as we haven’t told family or friends about the pregnancy yet.
Got 3 BFP tests on October 6th and we were so excited! Everything was going great, I’m still super early on in the pregnancy. But I started bleeding on Saturday, about 5 weeks 2-3 days, and have been ever since. It started out as brown blood but has progressed to dark red and now bright red. It’s more than spotting, but seems like less than a period because I don’t get much if anything in the pad unless it’s first thing in the AM. I’ve been having on and off cramping that feels just like period cramps and on and off back pain. I’ve even passed a few clots. Biggest one I’ve passed was the size of a quarter. I started freaking out and went to the ER on that Saturday night. They took blood and did an internal ultrasound. My HCG was 207 and the ultrasound showed the gestational sac but no yolk sac or fetal pole. They said it could just be very early pregnancy or a possible miscarriage.
I followed up with my OB on Wednesday, he didn’t want to do an ultrasound until next week Wednesday as he said it would be too soon to know anything. And he didn’t want to take blood to check my HCG because he said the HCG tests are too unreliable. He basically said it’s 50/50 and gave no possible explanations as to why I’m bleeding apart from the obvious possibility. So we’re just playing the waiting game. It’s been almost a week since I started bleeding. It seems to lighten up a bit and then get a little heavier randomly. It’s never been more than a very very light period but the color has been consistently bright red with bits of brown here and there. I’m trying to stay positive but man is it hard.
Thanks for listening, Sincerely, a freaked out FTM
