I know the title is not original but right now all of my originality is used up and this really is just an update on where I have been and why!  My pregnancy took a turn on Sunday when I started spotting and has sent me on a roller coaster ride that is far from over.

Sunday, the doctor on call was not worried and told me to call the office on Monday morning so I did.  They got me right in and did a couple of ultra sounds and they could not find a baby or a sac or anything so they wanted to do a blood test to see what my HCG levels were doing!  When I got the results back that evening they were 290 and they scheduled me for Wednesday to have a second level done. 

Tuesday was tough with heavier bleeding (just like a monthly cycle) and cramping!  I thought for sure I was having your garden variety miscarriage!  Wednesday, I went in for another blood test and then waited for the results.  Keep in mind I have clients and obligations that are going on during all of this so I put on a happy face and went on!  When the doctor finally called me Wednesday evening, I was getting ready to photography 96 kids ranging in age from 0 to 4!  I was hoping to hear that the numbers had gone down but they went up to 309 which is not normal!   If the pregnancy was viable they should have at least doubled in that 48 hour period!

That brings me to today!  Something is not right and so I go to the doctor at 1:30 Central time to discuss a possible ectopic pregnancy which may require surgery!  My emotions are off the charts today!  I am scared and sad and in a general funk!  This is all amplified by the fact that the person who says he loves me is being less than supportive of me while I sort this out!  I feel so alone but I have to keep moving because my kids need me and someone has to be there for them!

Please just bear with me through all of this!  I will keep you posted as best as I can!

I'm so sorry you are having to go through this... I just had a miscarriage last Sept...right in the middle of my son being in the hospital, and then me getting violently ill and ending up in myself...It really sucks. I hope that in the midst of this you have some really good support... ((HUGS))

I'm sorry that this is happening and you have no answers or support, Jo. I'm sending love, prayers and hugs that you have the strength to take care of yourself and the kids.

::hugs:: Having gone through a miscarriage I can definitely sympathize with you right now. The waiting sucks and it made me feel helpless. I really hope things turn out okay.
