Bleeding

Not even an hour has passed since my last post. I started bleeding (not spotting, but bleeding). There are no clots but I'm absolutely horrified and upset and I'm bawling. I put a call into the on-call doctor tonight and she gladly gave me a prescip for P.rometrium (progesterone). She says she's confident that it will help, especially since my HCG looks good. But I still can't escape this suffocating feeling that things are just going downhill.

I am praying that you will have peace right now, that the Lord will comfort you and take away your worry. Do not be afraid! God holds this little one in His hands, and we will pray safety, health and perfection over this baby. Remember who is in charge of it all, Sweetie!

I can't even imagine what you're feeling right now, but I will keep you in my prayers and I hope everything will work out.

Oh no! How scary!!
I bled REALLY BAD, too, Joy. I honest to God thought it was all over. I doubled up on the progesterone suppositories AND pills (ask them for BOTH if they will give them, the suppositories are much faster acting and do not metabolize in your entire body like those stupid pills do). I just laid in bed for 4 days straight sure it was all over. But it wasn't. And I am praying for the same for you.
Please email me if you need support, please. That bleeding was the scariest thing in my entire life, it was just horrible.
*hugs*

(can I just say the word verification that I have to type in before I can post this comment is "blesses")

Just found your blog while blog hopping and let me tell you I know how scary bleeding can be! I have bled in my first trimester with all three pregnancies! My first two are healthy beautiful girls and my third is still in me now at almost 18 weeks. I also had to have progesterone suppositories with my first and third pregnancies because although my hcg was fine my progresterone was low on both. I went off that at 12 weeks and things went smoothly! So far this third one is kicking away and healthy as far as we know. I wish you the best of luck and just wanted you to know that it can be normal and even though that's easier said than felt on your end that you just have to relax and take it one step at a time. Even when I bled during my third pregnancy I couldn't shake the fears so I understand that people can reassure you and say all the right things and it still won't feel like it helps. But you're not alone. Good luck!
