A few months ago I had missed my period, not a big deal because I frequently run late and haven't had much of a regular cycle since I came off birth control. After 2 months without a period, I took a pregnancy test, but negative. I started producing colostrum though...again I POAS and negative. Then a couple of weeks later I began cramping strongly and passing large clots and bleeding very heavily. It is my belief that I miscarried. Although it is very painful, I know that if I was roughly 8 weeks along and was not registering on a pregnancy test, it wouldn't have been a healthy baby. I believe in God's timing, and that gives me comfort. Now I'm not sure what to do/expect. It's been a few weeks since the bleeding, the bleeding stopped, then 2 weeks later I started spotting/bleeding, then it stopped 5 days later, and now I'm spotting again. Is this normal? Should I be going to my doctor to check things out or just let my body do it's thing?View Thread
I'm sorry for your loss....but I certainly understand your pain. It doesn't matter if you were 5 weeks or 5 months, when you desire to be a parent so much, it's painful no matter what. I didn't even know I was pregnant (though I suspected) when I miscarried but it still put me into a deep depression because my fiance and I talk all the time about growing our family. He has 2 kids and I have 2 from our previous marriages, but we want a DC together! Hang in there, and idk if you're spiritual or not, but it helps me to know that when God deems it the right time, he will bless us with a child. Take care! ((hugs))View Thread
