Jen's Surprise #4

I've never kept a pregnancy Journal.

I'm Jen, hubby John and I are expecting #4, but we are not hopeful that we will make it, pregnancy test line is light and I'm cramping pretty bad.

We have a 6yr old daughter, mine from a previous relationship, that I am trying to get custody of from my ex; a 4yr old son; and a 6mo old son.

John and I both want a girl, but of course we will be happy just to see this little one make it.

We wanted another, but we were not planning on one so soon. I never wanted two in diapers, even though I use cloth, the hassle and cleaning and everything I just didnt want it, but God has a plan.

I'm stressing and I know I shouldn't be, things are out of my control.

We told a few people mostly to get prayer and support if/when we loose this one.

I'm in an incredible amount of pain sometimes and others I feel fine.

I had an itchy tumy last night and DH pointed out its only going to get worse. I try to be optimistic, but most of the time, I just am trying to prepare myself for loss.

I got a negative test yesterday with two cheepies. I know I should only get good tests, but the negatives at 5+ weeks just confirms my fears. My hcg is way too low, its not rising well, and I am hoping for a quick end.

DH is still optimistic, but its hard for me with almost no symptoms (im tired is about all)

I think I feel nauseous. I'm not sure. Maybe just hungry.

I know I feel like crap.

I'm going to see if I can get into the doc for a blood test this week before I leave for Texas. I want to know my numbers. If not, I'll go as soon as I get into town. See if I can get my double, if there is one. I know its possible to have healthy pregnancy and not trip a 25 test at this stage. I tripped one that reads as low as 12.5. I have to remind myself of that. and maybe by wed when we get paid I will easily trip a 25 test. That's a long time to wait though. I wish I had money right now!

I went to the hospital last night, the pain was (and is) quite unbareable.

I showed negative on the hospital test.

I posted my test to the TTC forum, and the girls there agree that it was a positive test.

So either (a) I'm not at a high enough hcg level yet to trip a hospital test or (b) this is an early miscarriage (again) or a chemical pregnancy.

I'm holding out hope until I start to bleed but I'm prepared for a loss. I'm at peace with it.
