Hello, everyone! I just wanted to tell you all my story. Last week I started lightly bleeding bright red blood. This scared me because I never had it with my first or second pregnancy. I was also scared because my second pregnancy ended with a miscarriage, which was devastating because the we found I was pregnant on my hubby's birthday and the baby was due on Christmas. Well the night I started bleeding I called the doc and he told me if it got worse to go to the ER and if it stayed the same to come in for a ultrasound in the morning. Fortunately it slacked off to brown spotting. When I had the ultrasound done all they could find was a gestational sac. They could not see anything in it. They did a trans-abdominal first then the intra-vaginal ultrasound and still could not find anything, no yolk sac or fetal pole (I was 5wks and 4 days). The doctor came in and said it may just be that it was too early or I had a blighted ovum, so he set me up for another ultrasound in a week. Later on that night I started lightly bleeding bright red blood again. I just knew that was it. Then it slacked off and became brown spotting. This yo-yoing was making me crazy. I didn't know whether to hopeful or realistic. Let's just say the next week was like torture waiting, and today when I sat in the waiting room I thought I was going to have a heart attack. (By the way I had stayed up all night because of my nerves and prayed all night, and I had my mom and friends praying for me, and I told Jesus that night that if he let my baby be okay the first thing I would say was thank you Jesus. ) Wel when she called me back I could feel my heart beating so hard I thought it was going to pop out. She said we are going to try the trans abdominal one first, so I thought this was just going to be a waste of time because of my tipped uterus. Then all of a sudden she goes well there is something in there. When she said that I was felt my heart skip a beat! Then she said hold on, next she took some pictures, and told me to hold my breath. Then she said the heartbeat is 146 bpm!!! I was overwhelmed with happiness! The next words out of my mouth were thank you Jesus (over and over). Other than my first daughter being born I don't think I have ever been more elated. For any of you that think that you don't have a shot in the dark, don't give up. I almost did, and look what happened. I was bleeding, spotting, (also cramping which I forgot to mention) and was even told I probably had a blighted ovum. Never give up hope, and never underestimate the power of prayer. I think that all the prayers are what made this miracle. Good luck to all of you ladies out there! I also want to say thank you for all your stories that gave me hope! I hope you all have happy, and healthy pregnancies!!
