Thank you for this board to bring us so many useful info and thanks for all nice women's encouragement, specially, Kim, your story and your words really bring me a lot of hope when I was very worried. I am in my 9th week pregnancy now. I am posting my story to hope bring some hope to you who are in same situation as mine now.
Actually, I was very worried from very beginning after I know I am pregnant, because I don't have all the symptoms of early pregnancy at all. So I called my OB when I was in my 5th week. he did an v-ultrasound for me. at that time, only see yolk sac, nothing more, no heartbeat also. My ob was feeling not positive and order a blood test to check my beta-HCG level. I did first blood test on Nov. 3rd, and second time on Nov. 5th. And 3 days later, I got result, they have not doubled, 12954 / 17095. My ob was very discouraged with my result and tell me a lot of story about miscarriage to try to comfort me. As you can image, I was so sad after coming back from ob's office. Almost at the same day, I found I have a little spotting, but no any pain. I really thought I was gonna to lose my baby at that moment. After bed rest, spotting stopped. And I happen to see Kim's post on this board, "my story", and I feel her story sounds like my own story and let me see a little hope. So I refused my ob's suggestion that I was scheduled D&C on Nov. 9 and decided to wait for one more week.
On Nov. 16, I see my ob again and he did another v-ultrasound for me to make sure if I was miscarried. Then this time, we saw baby's strong heartbeat. I and my husband was so exciting and ultrasound shows my baby was 7w4d. Thanks God! I can not remember what my ob said to me at that time due to such a great news and only remember he told me that you baby is fine, everything is normal now. come back to do regular check again after one month.
Now, I am in my 9th week. Although I still have a little bit spotting sometimes, I am not that worried now. I believe we all are in His hand, God will give me a heath baby.
This is my story and I hope it would bring you some hope. Thank you all and May God bless all of us!
