So yesterday I had to go to he ER, due to severe cramping in my left lower side. Not my abdomen. I'm having slight spotting, which varies in color from dark red, like older blood, to brown....but its really light. Like if I use a pad, it doesn't even come close to getting used all the way. They estimate me to be around 3-4 weeks along. They did a blood test yesterday to test my hcg levels and it came back at 614. Im supposed to get the levels rechecked this friday, to make sure they are increasing (meaning the pregnancy is continuing and this all should pass) or if they decrease, the baby isn't going to make it.
They told me to come back if I experience more bleeding than I already have, and of course, if there is any more cramping, to go right back to the ER.
This morning I woke up with the cramping again, but its my left side, but up high, like just under my ribs. Not my abdomen, or ovary area.... so I called the dr's office, they asked if I have ever had kidney

My cramping has subsided for now, still lightly spotting...just tired now.

Have any of you ever experienced this? And the baby make it??

We are keeping our fingers crossed....

  • thank you all so much. Just very hard. We've been trying for the last year, and for it to be here but may not last, is just really hard for us. We know God has a plan though, so we are just asking that he place his hands on this baby and if its his will, then help us to have a healthy baby.

  • My threatened miscarriages ended in losses both times. However, I had bright red bleeding throughout. Have your doctor check your progesterone level today and Friday and see if it is dropping or not. Be adament as they do not usually check it. Mine was dropping with my last baby and had they not checked it, I'm sure I would have lost him, too. To this day, I am sure that my hormones caused me to lose those babies. Good luck and stay positive! This pregnancy could progress normally from here!

  • I should add that there is medication that supplement your progesterone level and possibly save the pregnancy, if that is the problem.

  • I've been pregnant 5 times....the first 3 were miscarriages...not "threatened miscarriages" just full on lost last two, however, were "Threatened Miscarriages"....I, too, had slight cramping and I spotted through the entire first trimester with both of them. I have a healthy girl and boy, now, though so it absolutely CAN turn out okay.

  • As it turns out, we did loose the baby...we found out this last friday... But, I really feel things are going to be fine because I was worried that something could have been wrong, because I never had those problems with my first it's kind of a relief... Though I know not every pregnancy is the same.... but I'm sure next time around, we will have a better outcome...
