I think I am back :(

I think our 6 week pregnancy adventure is over :( About a week ago I stopped having sypmtoms, which I hoped was the calm before the storm. Yesterday I started bleeding, not spotting. I have had a light flow of red blood. I had some mild cramping off and on yesterday and a little more uncomfortable cramping for about an hour. Today I am still bleeding the same but no cramping. I had an u/s this morning and they couldn't see anything in my uterus. She said that I have either already miscarried or my dates are wrong and I am still too early to see anything. I feel pretty certain of my dates (aren't all of us in the TTC world) but they are still running some bloodwork to check my hormone levels. I'll get the 1st results this afternoon and then get the next blood drawn on Sunday. I am normally a pretty optimistic person but I just feel it in my heart that I have miscarried :( I am dreading telling my daughter. She is SOOOOOOOO excited. She's worn her "I'm going to be a big sister" t-shirt almost every day since she found out. She talks to my belly all the time. I am REALLY wishing now that I hadn't told her so early.

Well, my first results back and my husband is so optimistic still but I am ready to move on. My HCG levels should be over 1000 at 6 weeks, instead it was 146 :( They are retesting on Monday just in case I am just crazy early. I looked it up though and for that to be a normal level, I would have had to have gotten a positive test the day I got pregnant. It just doesn't seem possible.

Tara!!! OMG, I'm truly sorry!
I made the same mistake with my daughter before, but she is younger, I just stopped talking about it, eventually told, I though I was, but then I wasn't yet, and It was ok.

This time I made the same mistake,but, I decided to be more optimistic to bring good vibes.

I hope you can heel soon, and find a good way to solve it to your daughter, maybe saying you thought was the time, but then it wasn't, and you'll let her know when it happens KWIM?

(((((((((huge hugs))))))))))

I think I have decided how to explain it to my daughter. Previously she wanted to see pics of how he was developing. Since they don't look like babies in the beginning I explained that it was kind of like Play Doh and God was shaping them into a baby that was ready to be born. I think that I will use that analogy to say that God started to form him but he wasn't just right to be the brother of such a special little girl so God took him up to Heaven to add the perfect touches before returning him to us at a later time. Does that sound good? I'd really like to go ahead and tell her because so far today she has been talking to my belly and she just made up a song all about the baby. I can't take much more of this. My husband is in denial until the last bloodwork comes back on Monday so I can't tell her yet, until he believes it's true.

Yes, I think it is a good way. That he's started but it takes a little longer than you thought for it to come to your belly
