My morning started off well. My oldest daughter and husband were home from school/work today due to Veteran’s Day. She really wanted to come with so we went and got my blood drawn. It wasn’t until we walked into the door at home that things went south.
While standing in the kitchen I suddenly felt like I was going into labor – like I had been stabbed in the uterus. I thought “Hey, I’m not bleeding so all is well”. I don’t know if I jinxed it or not but within five minutes from that point, I felt myself start bleeding.
What followed was a scary couple of hours where I was told to go on bed rest and let the fertility clinic know if I started bleeding a certain amount (which I didn’t luckily) as we waited for my beta result. I had the shakes and a lot of cramping for most it.
I finally got the call at about 12:30 letting me know that my progesterone was low but my HCG levels were at:
The fertility clinic said that it is normal to have bleeding in early pregnancy and seeing as my numbers are good they scheduled my ultrasound for November 16th, 2017! Unless the bleeding picks back up again heavily, they think that everything is fine.
It was a scary day. But I am so glad that everything turned out ok!
