There's bleeding.

Not full flow, but certainly more than spotting. Bright pink at first with no tissue, now bright pink mixed with brown and a little bit of tissue.

I had blood drawn this morning for P4 and E2, and it started a couple hours after that. I called the clinic and spoke with a nurse, so she called the lab to see if they could add an HCG. I'm assuming they could, since she hasn't called me back to tell me to go in and get drawn again.

I'm now officially on full bed rest, only supposed to get up if I have to go to the bathroom. And when you're constantly thinking about going to the bathroom, and what you're going to see when you do, it feels like you have to go every 20 minutes or so. (No, I'm not actually getting up that often.)

I know what everyone says about SCH, and the nurse said it's a possibility, but I'm not hanging my hat on that. My symptoms were less on Thursday (nausea, having to go to the bathroom frequently), and today they're non-existent except for the thinking-about-having-to-pee situation.

I just want to know, one way or another. I suppose if the beta is significantly below 664, we'll know. But the nurse also warned that the number might not tell us a lot - if it's higher than 664, we won't necessarily know if it's on its way up or down. She also mentioned the possibility of both of them starting to take and one not continuing on. So I may have to get blood drawn for a 5th time on Sunday.

And, since that isn't enough fun, I also have to arrange for a RhoGham shot within the next 72 hours.

Dang it! I'm sorry you don't know what's going on in there. Hoping it's nothing to be too concerned about. Thinking good thoughts for you...

Oh my dear, I am so very sorry.

Holding out hope for you. I really am.

I've been in your shoes and my heart is praying that your outcome is 100% different than mine.

I'm here if you need to chat.

Thinking of you and hoping you can stop thinking of peeing for a while!

Oh crap, I hate that there is more worry and doubt. I hope that it is NOTHING, I truly truly do. Thinking of you.

ARGH!!!!! There are some people for whom nothing comes easy, and unfortunately you seem to be one of those (at least baby-wise). I am hoping SO hard that your beta is still rising nicely, and that this bleeding crap stops ASAP.
