Back to waiting. Again.

Here are the events of the day. Called doc first thing to see what's up with the bleeding. Told me to come on over and she'd work me in today. Did a pee test. BFN. Checked my cervix, which was closed. That kind of gave us some hope since she said an open cervix would be a definite indicator of miscarriage. Sent me for beta, blood type, and Rh. DH and I killed an hour at Sonic and Home Depot. (and yes, I treated myself to a caramel sundae!) Went back to her office. Beta results: 3. Explains the negative pee test.

She knows that I was preggo due to previous betas...we definitely fertilized and implanted, but that's prob as far as we got. She said that my bean probably never developed which explains my lack of symptoms, the lack of cramping and heavy bleeding. There just wasn't tissue developed to come out, so my body thought this was just a regular period. Since my beta is back to "normal" she feels like the worst is over although I might still spot for a few days.

She did say that she didn't see any reason we couldn't start trying again immediately. When I get my next period, we will start Clomid as originally planned and she'll put me on progesterone immediately after my next BFP.

So. Now we just wait. And wait. And wait some more.


  1. Oh, I am so sorry, Allison. My heart goes out to you and I hope you and DH can be each other's support. You are in my thoughts and prayers!

  2. I'm sorry to hear the news. It sounds like you're looking forward to the next cycle though. I always try to stay focus on what's right ahead of me instead of getting overwhelmed about the past or future. Best wishes, keeping you in my prayers.

  3. Just wanted to stop by and say hello. We are on a similar timeline. I stopped bc in July. Isn't it funny to compare pre and post bc days? Gawd, I felt so normal on the pill and now I feel consumed and weirded out by my dusty uterus. I guess it's another adventure that not everyone is lucky enough to have! Good luck; I look forward to getting to know you.

  4. Hey Allison, Saw you on FF and thought I would check out your blog. Did the dr say what the progesterone would do for the pregnancy? I m/c'd in August. Anything to help one stick would be great! :)

  5. Amy, thanks for stopping by! I honestly don't know what the progesterone does exactly, but I know that it's what sustains the pregnancy and if levels are low the pregnancy ends. She never checked my progesterone, so I don't know that it was low. But...I'm willing to try it if I ever get another BFP!
