I already know

I still haven't stopped spotting.

Other than the mild cramps yesterday morning, and some mild cramps late last night, I've had no pain.

Called my Ob this morning, and the nurse tried to reassure me that spotting can be normal and happens in one-third to one-half of all pregnancies.

But I already know.

Then she tells me that the only way they can tell for sure is for me to come in for a blood test. Test my Hcg levels this morning, and again in 48 hours. If they're rising normally, then yay. If they're dropping, then boo.

I won't know the answer for four days.

I lose it when she tells me that. Four days. Why can't they just tell me what I already know? Why do I have to go thru this for four days without being told for sure?

This sucks.

I go in for a blood draw. Stay home from work. Rest.

So tired.

I'm sorry. I hope you get unexpected good news, or at least, if the news must be bad, that you don't have to wait in limbo too long.

Thinking of you.

I'm so sorry. I have been through this twice and it is very, very hard. I pray that you will be able to get through this difficult time.

The Lord help you get through this,

I will pray for good news, and that the four days pass quickly.

Unbelievable that with all our modern advances women are stuck waiting 4 days to have an answer to something so important...
I will personally pray that if everything is OK then let you be relieved of these symptoms ASAP and if not then let you have peace in your heart.

I know it's easier for me to tell you to try not to stress, but honestly, TRY not to stress too much. If it's any consolation my cousin experienced the "spotting" scare and she has two children...Woot! You'll be fine. I'm claiming it on your behalf. Andrea @ be-quoted.com visiting from SITS.
