Pregnant W PCOS

MandaGrace - February 17

Hey guys - I was diagnosed with PCOS about 6 months ago. My boyfriend and I have been trying to have a baby for over a year now. I'm 22 years old. I'm finally pregnant, with the help of Metformin. I just got the blood results back 2 days ago saying Positive. I live in Alaska and I'm up at work right now at a goldmine. I'm really starting to freak out though, I started bleeding today, almost like having my period. Does this mean I'm losing my baby?... Should I be worried? I'm only a little over a month along and I'm really scared that I miscarried. Does anyone have any answers for me? Thanks guys.

Bleeding how? MandaGrace, if it's spotting, go to bed on your left side for a while (I'm not a doc.) If it's bleeding call your doc. I'm sorry you're here too. Bleeding alone can be ok from what I understand. Bleeding with cramps is bad, but could be ok. Bleeding a lot with cramps is really bad. Big big hugs and keep us posted and ask what you need to.

Thank you so much, I'm really worried, I'm up here at work, I live in a village in alaska where all we have is a PA, I dont get off work until the 28th. It started out light pink and just light.. and after that I had to use a tampon, its like I'm on my period, but a lighter period, its not very heavy. I dont know how to explain it, I've never been pregnant before and its so scary. All I can think about is miscarriage. I'm trying to stay busy and not stress myself out. There hasnt been really much cramping. What do I do? I mean when I get home can I just take another pregnancy test and if it comes up negative I lost the baby??:( This is really hard.. Thank you for posting to me though. Support really helps.

First thing I would want to say is that you should use a pad and not a tampon. Its generally not a good idea to use tampons when pregnant, and if a m/c does occur definitely want to use a pad then cause there is a risk of infection. With that out of the way the best advice I could give would be pelvic rest until you can get to a doctor. It could be nothing, but anytime there is bleeding it is technically a threatened miscarriage. Something like 50% of women with this will still go on to have healthy pregnancy, and the other half will miscarry. I'm not a doctor so I can't tell you what is going on, but I can recommend seeing one to find out. Not knowing is worse than knowing, no matter what the outcome is. My m/c started with what felt like gas pains, or maybe bowel discomfort, but it was actually in my uterus I just couldnt tell. There was also a dull ache in my lower back, real similar to the day before and first day of AF feels like. That all went away then I had light pink bleeding (heavier than spotting, but not a full on bleed) That stopped after a few hours, and then several hours later I had mild cramping, and several hours after that, extreme cramping and heavy red bleeding. Best advice just to take it easy and try and see a doctor when you can. I will be wishing you the best of luck for a healthy pregnancy. ANd try not to worry. i know easier said than done.. but just keep in mind a lot of times spotting and bleeding can be perfectly normal and have a perfectly healthy baby. Just relax as best you can =).
