My name is Kellie and I am currently pregnant with my 4th pregnancy this will be my 3rd child. I had a miscarriage with my first pregnancy and I have a almost 5 yr old son and a 2 yr old daughter. With both my son and my daughter I bled for the first 12 weeks about. This pregnancy was no different except this time I had extreme cramps. I started bleeding around 6 weeks and kept bleeding until 12 weeks about. I went into the Er numerous times for severe cramping and heavy bleeding. They did ultrasounds and called it a threatened abortion. The time before last when I went into the ER the doc said that he was gonna draw my blood for a beta hcg count. He came back and said that from the last time it was drawn until then it had went down and I was miscarrying. He said that I shouldnt see a drop in the hcg until atleast 12 weeks or so. I was only 9 weeks about at the time. He said for me to call my OB for a d&c appt the next day. At the ER I was seen at he said the only reason they call in Ultrasound techs at night is for Emergency's like ruling out an ectopic or something and I had already had a ultrasound and we knew the baby was in the uterus. So he said I was having a miscarriage and sent me home with a valium and some pain meds. I called my ob office the next morning and they told me to come in immediately. I went in and he got the ultrasound machine and there the baby was jumping around everywhere with a heartbeat of 169. I was so amazed, angry, hurt, scared. Whatever you do don't give up hope and dont jump to conclusions. I am now 17 weeks pregnant with a very active baby that we find the sex out on November 10th......
