Thanks, Becca! Definitely trying to be hopeful and not stress too much. Regardless, there's not much I can do anyway but pray. I can't wait to get to the doctor tomorrow. I will probably get there early hoping they will see me quicker. LOL!

The doctor should be able to tell a lot even without an ultrasound, so I'm sure you'll get news! The first thing my doctor did last time I was there was feel if my uterus was the "right size" for where it should be. It's amazing what they can tell with a physical exam.

Good luck for tomorrow and good luck passing the hours until then...! I'm sure you're just busting.

Thank you, TTC. I am definitely about to bust. It is surprising how much they can tell from just a physical exam - I know I will feel so much better if she tells me everything looks good. Should I ask her to run betas on my blood work? I don't want to be too pushy, but with spotting, I definitely want to make sure that everything is going okay.

I've been lots more nauseated this afternoon. Dry heaved before lunch when I let my tummy get empty. I'm guessing this is good news! Still can't help but be concerned, but I'm now at less than 24 hours. Thank goodness!!

It's funny how being sick is a good sign, but I totally agree!

I'd ask for more bloodwork -- it's worth asking. Just tell them the truth, you are very anxious since the spotting and would be reassured to have bloodwork done. I mean, you're paying for it so why should they say no really? If the doctor really says "no way, that's totally unnecessary" -- well, at least you'll know he/she feels really strongly that things are fine!

I think that is really excellent advice Florida. Blood work will help assure you everything is fine!

I wanted to share with you guys that I recently bought this book: http://www.amazon.com/From-Hips-Compreh ... 0307237087 and am loving it. I also have "What to Expect" which is fine - but From The Hips is written more candidly and is graphically appealing (not just text on pages).

I'm seeing a lot more pinkish-red now, ladies. It looks just like how I'd be if my period were starting. I'm also cramping a little. My heart is just sinking... :cry:

Oh no!!! Can you go to the Dr. right now? Or maybe the ER? That's what I would do. Don't take no for an answer.

My DH wants me to wait until my appt in the morning. It's at 9:15 - I'll probably get there earlier hoping they can see me a few minutes sooner.

No more pink and what little CM is left is the faintest brown. I (stupidly) did a cervix swipe and saw one string of dark red blood (almost black in color). That was not comforting at all. My back really aches, but no more cramps in my ute, except for the same normal ones I've been feelings.

My chest isn't really all that sore this evening, but there is still some tenderness. I'm trying so hard not to worry until I speak with the doctor tomorrow.

Thank you so much for your prayers guys. Really, they do work, so keep them coming my way!! :praying:

Mel- I know you want to wait for the doc in the morning, but if you cramps start getting worse, would you consider the ER? I'm so worried about you! I hope this is nothing, but it doesn't hurt to be extra cautious. So sorry that you're going through this :(

Thank you guys for the thoughts and prayers! I tried several times to get to this site yesterday from my phone so that I could update, but it wouldn't pull up for some reason. I am on a real computer today so I am back.

The doctor said that my cervix is closed and uterus is measuring right as it should be for six weeks pregnant. I had a lot of morning sickness before my doctor's appointment and my doctor was encouraged by that, as well. She said "I am very optimistic for you!"

She did do a blood draw and they are supposed to call me today with my HCG levels. If they are over 7,000 (they better be!) then they will schedule me for an ultrasound to check on my little one's heartbeat. They said they may not even call until Saturday. They are killing me here!

Yesterday afternoon, I had little to no spotting, just some slight brown discharge. This morning I got up to pee and there was a little pink mixed with the brown but it is gone now. I'm still pretty nauseated today, breasts are tender but not as sore as yesterday and all seems to be well with the little one. I'm just ready to get off this emotional roller coaster and have some peace. I hope I will get some answers soon.

In the meantime, I'm sincerely praying to God that He will let the bleeding stop so that I won't have to worry anymore.

Oh, and do you guys see the line on that test in that avatar? That was taken on the day my period was due. I got a very noticeable line five days before missed period and they got a lot darker the more I tested.

I know you can't really go by how dark tests are, but don't you think my levels would be higher than 7,000 if I got such dark lines so early on?

Just wondering what you guys think?

Mel! That is all so great to hear. I'm sure your blood test will come back solid - especially because your symptoms are strong. XOXO

I too have suddenly become nauseated. This is my first ever bout with morning sickness. I'm not vomiting just feel super queasy, mostly when hungry. Also there are foods that just repulse me - mostly vegetables and meat that isn't red (stuff I used to love). I am also obsessed with salt and vinegar chips, they're like the only thing that can make me feel better. Any one have any advice?
