(x-posted on PAL too)
Yesterday I was having bad cramping and low back/leg pain AGAIN along with some clear discharge (it felt like my period was coming). I called the OB and they wanted me to come in and check my cervix. The OB said it was closed and felt my uterus. He said "I think we should get a u/s sooner rather than later" and sent me out to the waiting room. The nurse brought me some water and told me that I'd only have to wait a half hour for the scan. I was shaking like a leaf! 10 days ago I had my first scan and everything was measuring right on target for 6weeks and hb was 108. Yesterday (which was 9 days from the last scan) I was measuring 6 weeks 6 days and the hb only went up to 116. Both of these scans were abdominal. I am freaking out because they want me to come in next Wednesday for another scan since the growth is not progressing as it should. Anybody ever measure a few days behind after being right on target and still okay now??? They told me to try not to panic just yet (yeah, right!). ugh, I can't help but think the worst...2 m/c's back to back will be beyond awful.

Hugs, Jules... I will keep you and your little bean in my thoughts and prayers. I hope that things get right back on track, and that you just have a slow-grower there.... Hang in there, Chica.

Ugh! I know how nerve wracking it can be. I know it'll be impossible to relax until next week. Just know that we're all thinking of you & sending SBV your way!

Hoping and praying that your LO is just getting a slow start. I know how scary it is.


Hang in there.

Thanks Melanie, it is so nerve-wracking and of course my mind is thinking the absolute worst. Why does this have to be so difficult? At least my app't is first thing in the morning on Wednesday.

Gina, thank you for thinking of me. I know that you are and have been going through so much...I am just touched that you responded during such a difficult time. I feel like the whole world has come to a stop and all I can focus on is next Wednesday. The waiting is just awful.

Dani, I hope that is all it is too...but I am even more worried than usual since the OB is concerned as well. I just want 8:10am on Wednesday to hurry up and get here. Luckily DH is on vacation, so he can stay home with our son who will still be sleeping when I will have to leave. Sadly though, that means I will be going to this appointment alone - not looking forward to that :(
