This is not happening again *updated*

I woke up this morning to bright red blood. Not a little, a lot. But as of right now I am not cramping. Hammer encouraged me to take the last HPT to see if my levels dropped but the test line is now nearly as dark as the control. We're praying this is a good sign. I put a call in to my clinic and I'm going to request to switch to PIO if the HCG is still rising. Please pray for our little one!

The bleeding has continued without any cramping. It's less than a period but bright red. The clinic couldn't really tell me anything (as I expected) other than we would have to wait till tomorrow to see if the levels increased or decreased. They still wanted me to take the endometrin even though I kept asking if I could absorb it with all the bleeding. I really didn't get a good answer. My mom offered to come over to hang out with me today. She's a retired nurse and we both decided to just crack open the last PIO I had on hand and give myself a bolus of 0.5cc. We figured it couldn't hurt and would only help. Afterward we spent sometime praying for the little one.

It could very well be implantation bleeding. I had so much of it, I thought my period had shown up early. It was only when it abruptly stopped, and some friends said to test that I found out I was pregnant.

A friend's RE said he has had numerous women swear they had their period, when it was implantation.

Hang in there.

I just wanted to let you know that I had terrible bright red bleeding and still had a successful pregnancy. I was taking the suppositories as well and my REs office said that bleeding with the suppositories was very common.

I am sending you good vibes and wishing for the best for you and your little one.

I am praying with you. Good call on the PIO. It really cannot hurt anything. I know how scary this is...this happened to me too...so I know there can still be positive outcomes from this kind of bleeding. Just take it easy and we will pray for good numbers tomorrow. The darkening FRER is a good thing.

I am not sure how I found your blog...BUT my heart knows what you are going through. It is a long story and I am happy to let you see the blog if you would like to read it...but the point is that I went through what you are going through with my last two in-vitro's one was my son and then especially with my twins.

I remember worrying and fretting and my Infertility doctor finally said lets do an ultrasound...granted you know that you may not see heartbeats but it helped me feel a little bit better...I had to take it easy for the rest of my pregnany and I always had a little brown and at times quite a bit of bright red..but the babies did okay and I just rested.

You are in my thoughts and prayers:)
