I'm going to start to write things down... I don't want to forget a thing...

So we were due to start a FET cycle Nov 2012... our last... but my period was late by a few days. I'd been put on Metformin late Sept as my blood sugar wasn't great, not diabetic, but high nonetheless. So I just thought my period was messed up with the medication. I was impatient to start the FET cycle, so called my gynaecologist to see if he could give me something to hurry my period up... no way could I be pregnant! So he told me to do a beta hcg test, just to be sure... yeah no need I thought but here goes...

October 31st 2013 - Halloween... beta test comes back at 80!!!!!!! What?!?! I was in total shock! In fact I didn't believe it, thought they'd mixed up the results...

Nov 6th 2013 - having no symptoms and so scared something is wrong, just kept thinking of miscarriage last year when I had symptoms and they went away. So went for another beta... 698! So it's doubling as it should, I'm definately pregnant! Now I have to wait until Nov 20th to see my gynaecologist for first scan. It's going to be a long wait.

Nov 13th 2013 - 7.30pm preparing dinner, go to the loo and my pants are covered in pinkish/red blood. I freak out, call out for my husband and tell him we have to go to the hospital... I think I might be miscarrying. At the hospital the doctor gives me a scan, we see the sac but also a subchorionic haemorrhage and the sac has torn away a little from the uterus. Doctors tells me to rest, that it usually reattaches, but I am so scared. Beta level is 8127... still doubling. When I get home I lose more blood, this time it's bright red and fills a sanitary towel. I spend the next 48 hours in bed scared to move.

Nov 15th 2013 - today - the bleeding has almost stopped, just light spotting, brown blood. Had beta rechecked... it's now 13800... so still increasing. Can't tell you how relieved we are baby is hanging in... our little fighter. Taking no chances so taking it easy for the next few days until the scan.

Good idea taking it easy. Get your dh to do everything for now. Put your feet up, get him to give you a massage, have a warm bath, have him cook dinner if he can and clean up. It may be more for him, but that's better then losing this little fighter

This is the best news (about your natural pregnancy) I am keeping you and your little one in my prayers. I know first hand how stressful it is to have these bleeds. I am not allowed to do anything either. You are right this little one is a fighter!! Keep growing nicely little bean!
