Bleeding at 3 weeks...

Ok so my husband left to another state on August 27, last day of sex was August 26... He left for two weeks in those two weeks I took a pregnancy test on August 29 and it was negative, then another on September 3rd & one of the lines was real faded, then the day my husband came home on Sept 10th I took another pregnancy test & it showed two solid red lines. My last period was on August 15... Sooo on Sept 20 I rushed to the ER bleeding red like regular period passing almost black blood clots and my HG # was 68! Which is low, and I have no cramps or pains for that matter. The doctor said it was too early to see anything In my uterus but as far as he was concern it was signs of miscarriage. But the bleeding can happen in the first trimester cause old blood that needs to be flushed out since the blood clot is almost black. But then again its been two days since the ER visit they want to do HG # reading again so today the got blood & gotta wait till Monday... To see if my HG went up or went down. I'm stressed about it... This weekend will be the longest! Has anyone gone thru something like it? How did it end up?

It will be a super long weekend, and I'm sorry you're going through this. I've been there 4 times! And unfortunetly all resulted in a miscarriage. 68 if your last period was Aug 15 that would make you 5 weeks 1 day. But hCG numbers can be 68 at that point. Its not so much what the number is, its what it is doing. (Should double every 48 hrs)

Generally speaking though, any kind of bleeding that's red and or has clots is not a good sign. If it was old blood, it should be brown. I wish you the best and you're in my prayers.

Thank you so much. I honestly believe that God is a miracle worker & he makes anything possible. Me and my husband relying on God's will. He will decide what will be next. I am worn out, tired & honestly very upset & will be devastated if my baby did get flushed out because we already had names picked out for either boy or girl. Is hard as heck & I just want the results. The doctor says the HG level most be 0 if I miscarriage & over 500+ to be sure the baby is still there... If my number stays on 68 or around that # they most look for the possibility of a ectopic pregnancy... But I should have some sort of pain & yet I have no pain of any kinda through all this... My Dr finds it so orthodox altogether, because some women won't have pain at first but they do with the bleeding... Or at sometimes through the whole bleeding process & well I haven't had any... Smh is so crazy!

It is a weird situation, with my first and forth miscarriage, I had no pain. For hCG levels anything under 5 is a negative result. God works in mysterious ways and its sometimes hard to accept what he decides but, its all for a reason in the end. The ideal hCG level for you would be 138 if it was taken 2 days apart from eachother, however if it goes up a little bit, there's still some hope. If it goes down that's not a good sign.

But, if you miscarry naturally you can try again right away. Most Dr's like you to wait at least 1 cycle but that's usually only for dating purposes. Also, women who have 1 miscarriage usually go on to have successful pregnancies. I hope that's not the case for you though.

You know I'm leaving all to the Lord. Yes, I actually had a still born, I was almost 7 months pregnat & a year a year in the half later I had my Jay who is 3 years old now... So I believe things do happen for a reason. But we hoping for the best. Because is so crazy what me and hubby going through right now. Ugh. I had met couple women who had similar situations like mine & some did miscarriage and the others went & had healthy babies. So God is full of wonders and miracles. So thank you Amy. It feels good to talk about this matter. Someone who can relate.

I agree with Amy. Thank you so much because that just boosted up my hopes! Last Wednesday when my HCG was checked it was 68! I bled for one day light red with blood clots and spotted red for 2 days but no pain or nothing neither I'm bleeding now... Since my HCG was so low on Wednesday if I did miscarriaged then my HCG should gone down completely since it was so low. Yet I still have a low HCG two days after I bled & today I took a preg test & I'm still pregnant... The line is not solid but you can see two perfect lines on the home pregnancy. They have my results by tomorrow Monday for my second HCG test... Your story k4d is amazing and encourage me to think God has the hang of this situation. Thank you so much!!
1815473 tn?1336171200
Thank you so much k4d. That really gives me hopes indeed. I am hoping from the bottom of my heart that my baby is still there and in 8 months or so I will be delivering. Me & my husband have made this baby part of our lives & it ***** to be going through some stuff like this. God first though. Is good to know good things can come from difficult problems like mine. Thank you again! :)

I just refuse to accept it. God will help us through all this. I don't care how small my baby was he was part of me & we had already chosen names & themes for his/her room. It's all so devastating I am distraught!! I feel so sad & my husband is sad too but he stays strong because one of us must so he can comfort me. Doctor says to take a HPT and make sure it shows negative, if it comes back positive then they must look for a reason why my HCG won't drop completely. She said they would check me for eptopic pregnancy. This pregnancy has scared the life out of us! Thank you k4d I am being strong but its so hard.

I can imagine how hard it is for u I understand that the baby was part ov u and even tho it was a short time from finding out till just now u's have grown 2 love that little 1 that just shows how much love u's have 2 give and u's will ALWAYS love the little bean but sometimes bad stuff happens (as u no) but I do believe that something gr8 is waitin for u just needs 2 b the right time x

That's true. I just can't help to feel so hurt... I am not upset with God for it I simply just upset it happened to me but since it was Gods decision I will respect it & trust him through it all. God is a good lord and he wants the best for me and for that I trust him. Thank you for being so soothing to my situation k4d you are a good woman as well. Got bless you.
