I’m a little nervous now. When I woke up this morning and used the bathroom, there was a little brown spotting (Sorry TMI.) I know that by itself is not a cause for concern – I know it’s supposedly quite common and as long as it doesn’t turn into bleeding is usually fine.
But I never had any spotting when I was expecting Nathan & Emily. Not a single tiny bit.
Last month, I had a little brown spotting and then 4 days later, I started miscarrying.
It’s hard to not be afraid right now.
I called the on-call doctor and told her what was going on. She told me to go to the lab today (I didn’t even know they were open!) and she would order another beta # and progresterone levels. If my progesterone (a hormone that helps support a pregnancy) is low, they can give me a supplement to help raise the levels and thus support the pregnancy. Low pregesterone (depending on how low) can potentially cause a miscarriage just by itself. It is preventable.
Again a little spotting is not necessarily something to worry about, but for me well – it is a little. 🙁
Right now I’m just trying to continually give this to the Lord. I don’t know why He is doing this, but I know He has a reason. I’m just really praying that He will allow our baby to be strong and healthy. Please, Lord, please.
Btw, Emily is still sick (bad cough now) so we can’t go to church. We woke up late and were thinking of just going to the second service, but now we’ve decided to just stay home and do a family Bible time.
In a little while, I’ll go down to the lab for bloodwork. Please pray that my beta number has doubled (at this point a doubled number would be around 300) and that my progesterone is ok and ultimately that our baby is growing and healthy. The doctor said she would put the labwork through STAT so we might have the results back by tonight but it might not be by tomorrow.
Please pray. Thank you.
