Emergency Room

On Wed. afternoon I started spotting, and I thought it was due to stress. Well I called my Dr and they ordered my in to do a hCG. They called me back, said it was around 8000. Along this time, I'm thinking I'm 7 weeks. Now enter Thursday afteroon. I am still continueing to spot, so as soon as my DH got home from the ball game that he played in (no I didn't go because i "knew" i didn't need to be on my feet)I told him we need to go to the ER NOW. We get there I explained to the lady what was going on, and while we sat FOREVER waiting to go back, I had to pee and a clot came out. YES, I FREAKED!!! They finally called us back, she took urine sample and bloodwork (my poor arm) and we waited. By this time, we are there 4 HOURS. The dr. came in and said my count was around 8000 (I really would like the REAL number here). They wanted to do a pelvic exam and an ultrasound. SOOO, they had to call the On-Call u/s tech to come in. She couldn't tell me anything about the baby hence it was an emergency u/s. She did that, gave it to the Radiologist, and then the dr. looked at em. Then she came in and said. "Pam, you have a 6 week 3 day old baby in there". I finally got a True day, because i had been guessing. Well... she said my body is trying to terminate the PG. I dont' really feel this is the case, but thats what she said. Like i told my DH, I did the same thing with my daughter 12 years ago, when i found out i was PG with her. She turned out fine. Well, they put me on bedrest, lots of fluid, no exercise, and keep off my feet except to the bathroom. I feel very positive about it though. because like i said i refuse to lose this baby that i want soo much. So i need lots of prayers, AGAIN!! The Lord has been very good to me, and I really don't think he'd let me down now.

Thanks for all your cares, prayers, and concerns!

Have a good week!
