Could you go into a immediate care center to get blood work to check your HCG and progesterone. If it is low they can prescribe it and then you wouldn't be waiting days. Congrats and I hope everything goes well! Keep us updated! I am praying for you!

Maybe preg, maybe miscarrying-UPDATE (BAD BAD)

Postby danielsmom » Sat Feb 26, 2011 03:02 pm

Ok this is weird. I had my cycle on day 26, 11 days ago. My cycles are usually 27-28 days, so I didn't think much of it being a day early. It was normal for me and lasted 5 days. Oh well, maybe better luck next time right? But then I keep spotting or having just a little color in my discharge (sorry TMI), and that's what led me to take a test this morning. Positive. I took another and got the same result. Hmmm...

I don't know what to think of this. I have no other symptoms whatsoever. I'm bummed that I didn't take the test almost 2 weeks ago, but I thought it was a true cycle. I could have already started progesterone (I needed it with Daniel and 2 early miscarriages). There could already be a heartbeat... ohmigosh... :shock: So I guess we're off to see my OB Monday.

Could fish oil alter a preg test? I take that now. I know I'm grasping straws.
