jbadoino - February 3

on mon.jan28th i took a preg. test it looked like the pos. line was very lite but there. i figures it was just neg. or not working right so i put in in the garbage and took a shower and went to work. at work i felt horrible so i went over to the cvs near me and bought a test. took it and boom PREGNANT! I thought I was gonna pass out! The next day tuesday I went to a clinic to get proof for my insurance that I was preg. and the urine test came out neg. with a really light line next to itbut they said they saw it and would agree I was preg. and sent me with my proof and I went home.They had also said I was 4wks and 5days preg. I left feeling confused and not so happy. So on the way home I stopped and bought a test that said PREGNANT or NOT PREGNANT... Went home took the test and in 2 seconds I was PREGNANT. I was convinced. That night I went in for my last (yeah right) pee of the night and spotted blood. I went to the emergency room they didi a blood test and said I was no where near 4wks and 5days pregnat because I was leveled at 28 meaning 1 day preg. and I had a 50/50 chance of mc. and to get blood work done again in 48 hrs to see if I dropped or went up. thurs I went to the hosp. and they said I was at a 7 and I likely mc. I never knew the pain bc I had a uti through all of this that i was on medicine for and it was really painful. I clotted but not much and my blood wasn't heavy as my regular period. I stpped bleeding on friday for good and I need to go back to the hop. for more blood to make sure i dropped down to 0. They said it was too low to ever go back up. I'm already a mom to a 9 yr old boy and this would've been a blessing for us bc we were trying for 6 years. I'm not sure what exactly happened but through reading up on chemical mc I truly believe thats what happened. I want to try again as soon as I can but I don't know how soon that could be. Any advice ? I am very upset but I feel like it was over before it was anything. I belive it was to fast to have any tissue build up.I am so new at this !!! Any help would be great! Thanks, Jamie

Hi Jamie, I'm so sorry but this is a chemical pregnancy. They are actually very common (I was told 50% of pregnancies end this way, but most women don't test early and just a__sume they got a "late period"). May I ask what kinds of methods you have tried in trying to conceive for 6 years? Has it been constant and have you tried temping and charting along with ovulation predictor tests? Have you seen a doctor to rule out possible issues?

Jamie - I'm sorry for your loss. It certainly does sound like a chemical pregnancy. You can start to try again whenever you are ready - you body doesn't have to adjust or get back to normal. I wish you all the luck in the world....~A
