seeing the doc tmrw

Today I am 6 wks and 1 day along and since finding out I was pregnant 2 wks ago, much of that time, I have been wrought with worry. The first few days, I was experiencing brown spotting. I asked my doctor and she said it could be implantation bleeding, which should stop or it could get heavier and be indicative of a MC. I did blood tests to ensure that my hcg levels were doubling appropriately, which they did. Around the same time, the spotting stopped so that was a relief. But a few days later, the spotting came back and it was pinkish. Reading online, pink and brown spotting with no pain can be normal so I tried to just wait it out, but it continued on and off for a few days. I contacted my Dr again and she said that I can check my hcg level again as it's too early for her to see anything with an ultrasound. I tested Friday and the results were appropriate. Since then I had some more spotting and I just have no piece of mind. My first appt isn't until Wed which will put me at 7 wks and in the meantime, I am so worried and all I do is read information online that scares me even more. I contacted my Dr again and she said I can see her tmrw and that based on my HCG levels, she should be able to confirm my pregnancy sooner. So I am going in tmrw morning. Wish me luck!

Hi ladies.  Thanks for all your well wishes.  :)


Here's an update:


We went in last week at 6wks, 3days to check on the pregnancy as I was having spotting and getting pretty worried.  The Dr. could not see the baby via ultrasound and was unable to confirm my pregnancy.  She said it could be too early and that I may have ovulated later than I thought and maybe I am only 5 wks, but in my mind, I knew it wasnt possible judging by when we DTD.  And based on my hcg levels, I really believed that we should have seen something on the ultrasound, but all we saw was the gestational sac and nothing inside.  It pretty much looked empty.  She said to stay positive and come back the following week and if she still doesnt see anything, then she will rule a MC and then we go from there.  I was crushed and I wanted to keep positive, but it was hard and I hate to say it, but I already accepted and expected the worst outcome.


Well, yesterday was our appt at 7wks, 1 day.  If we don't see anything this time, then it's definitive.  Well, much to my and DH's surprise, there he/she was!  Heart beating away and everything.  I couldnt believe my eyes!  The Dr says she looks good and at the right size for my date.  We are super thrilled and relieved and grateful.  :)


Hi ladies Thanks for photo 1084594-1
