First bit of advice is to call your doctor.

I hope everything comes back ok on your tests. It is definitely a scary time, especially after experiencing a loss. Bleeding is a good reason to call your doc. How far along are you? You could ask for an ultrasound to help ease your mind if you're far enough along.

I know joining PAL can be a scary thought, but the good thing about PAL is that every person there is pregnant, all stages of pregnancy, so everyone there is either going through the same scary thoughts or has recently had those same scary fears - it's a great board, come over and introduce yourself, you'll find several women at the same stage of pregnancy as you are.

I hope you'll consider joining us at PAL

Hey there chica... I'm really sorry for your loss in June and while I'm happy you got your bfp, I'm sorry that you are experiencing this uncertainty.

I sincerely hope that it is not an impending miscarriage, but it sounds like your doctor is on the ball by checking your levels. If your levels go down then you will most likely miscarry. If they go up, you could be ok. Julia's advice is right, please stay in contact with your doctor's office. They will be able to answer the medical issues sooner than anyone here can guess what is happening.

For the support you are looking for Torie and Julia are right... the girls at PAL have experienced the uncertainty and fear that each new pregnancy brings and you can safely post there without fear of inadvertantly upsetting someone.

I really hope that this your sticky BFP and that it's just implantation spotting, or like brit posted, maybe from recent intercourse.

BIG (((HUGS))) chica. Hang in there! :)

Take heart, a lot of women have bleeding episodes in pregnancy. I had bleeding with two pregnancies and both went on just fine. One was a little bleed from implantation, one they never explained. Scared me to death both times. It's a good sign that it is stopping. You have a very good chance of going on to have a healthy baby. With my miscarriage the bleeding got worse as time went on. Bleeding is so stressful but hopefully the fact that yours was slowing was a very positive sign.

I think since the pregnancy is so very new, and since there is bleeding, and since treefrog just experienced a miscarriage,and especially since she thought it might mean another miscarriage, this post really does fall within the miscarriage TTC board. It's all so very tenuous that first week or two - especially when you are bleeding. I would have thought miscarriage too.
