Most of this week went by without any event. Nothing! No morning sickness. No dizziness. No anything! I felt very, very normal. I don’t think the reality of “being pregnant” had kicked in yet.
But by the end of the week I had spotting. I’ve never had spotting before. Even with my first two children.
Everyone I’ve ever spoken to, and everything I’ve read, says that spotting in early stages of pregnancy is very common.
Many mothers have told me that they had spotting, even heavy spotting, all throughout their pregnancies – and their babies have come out perfectly fine.
But I also know that spotting may mean that the baby did not make it.
I was very calm, I didn’t freak out. I called my doctor at the fertility clinic.
I went in for a blood test and was told that I had low progesterone. Apparently, at this early stage of the pregnancy, progesterone is important.
So as of yesterday, I am on hormone medication.
And I’m still hopeful.
