Deja Vu

Last night I started to feel abdominal pain. I thought it felt like cystitis, thinking it might be (TMI alert) a reaction to the scented panty liners I had been using, since I am on twice daily pessaries of cyclogest. So I sent John down to the shop for some cranberry juice, and tried to put it out of my head.

When I went to the toilet just before I went to bed, there it was. Blood. Not much more than spotting, but definitely there, and dark red. Here we go again. This has been par for the course in all my pregnancies so far, so I suppose I should have been expecting it to kick off between weeks 5 and 6.

There's not whole pile we can do for the moment but just wait it out and see. I'm going for another blood test tonight, and after that I am going to start on hcg injections. I'm not sure that they will be of any benefit, but they certainly won't do any harm. There is no point in going to hospital for a scan at this stage, as they most likely won't see anything at the five week mark, and not being able to see anything will only leave me more upset. I'm still seeing light brown spotting today, so I think if this doesn't settle down in the next week, I will call the hospital if I get as far as six weeks.

Well I suppose I was right not to get too excited. But I really wish I could just have in incident free pregnancy for once.

O cr*p. So sorry to hear this.

Thanks everyone. Well the spotting has calmed down, and I no longer feel crampy, so here's hoping. I had another blood test done last night and expect to get the results by Thursday afternoon. So until then it's a waiting game.

Sweetie you are one strong chick. I woudl definitely go to the hospital for an early scan, they should be able to see at least a gestational sac and most importantly the sac will exclude an ectopic pregnancy. you know I'm overly worried about this with my experience, but I just tink you should realy go and see what they say. much love, you are in my thoughts.
