Patience is a virtue, right?

I went to the doctor this afternoon and my urine test still showed positive. Obviously it wasn’t a first morning sample, so maybe that means something?? I was told by the nurse that I was “definitely pregnant.” Of course, as I talked about the possibility of hCG showing up on a test after miscarriage, she agreed that yes, it could. Ha, thanks for nothing then! :P

Then, the midwife couldn’t tell me anything conclusive either. :( She ruled out infection as well as a pending miscarriage (my cervix was closed completely), so that’s good but we still don’t know if I am currently pregnant or if I miscarried. It’s too early to be able to tell by feeling my uterus.

She ordered blood work and we’ll know the results tomorrow morning. If my hCG levels are lower than normal for 5/6 weeks, she wants me to come back in two days for another draw so we can compare them. They’ll be looking at miscarriage or ectopic as the cause. If they’re within normal range tomorrow, then I’m pregnant and we need an ultrasound to try and get a due date (and hopefully find out the cause of the bleeding).

I’m feeling down right now. :( I am not very patient so this is making me crazy. I don’t want to want to be pregnant!!! If I am, wonderful but if I’m not I want to return to regularly scheduled programming! Lol

The rainy day was quite fitting for how I was feeling when I left. :P

*Update: Test Results (how it all ended)*

  1. I was hoping they’d just do an ultrasound. I follow a blog of a woman who is now 38 weeks pregnant, who had heavy unexplained bleeding for months during her pregnancy. She is scheduled for induction next week.

    1. Yeah, I had my fingers crossed that an ultrasound would be on the agenda once I told her how much I bled but nope, I think it sounds so much like a miscarriage (and maybe it was, I don’t know) that she just wanted to look at the hCG levels first. She did seem compassionate, though, and she could tell how anxious I was/am to know what’s going on. She’s going to be calling me this morning with the results and our game plan from here.
      That’s awesome to hear about your blogging friend! Mind sharing her blog’s name? I’d like to visit. :)

    1. Thank you and I’m so sorry for your loss. :( I miscarried, too. The numbers were down by three thousand 48 hours after the first test. Now I’m just waiting for them to get back to normal. :/

  2. I just suffered a loss at 13 weeks. Unfortunately, since I have miscarried before, I spent the entire pregnancy worrying that I would lose again and should have been happier while I could. I am so sorry for your loss.

  3. “I don’t want to want to be pregnant” echos my soul. I just lost a baby and I’m feeling so discouraged with every period… I’ll be praying for you. It isn’t easy to be wading through the unknown. Hoping you get some answers!!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
