    After TTC #2 for 3 years and having a miscarriage at 8 weeks in July, I got a positive pregnancy test on Saturday (Feb 2). I wasn't even going to take one because I had been spotting so much but I just felt "weird" so I did and was very surprised to see a +! I called my OB right away and they had me come in that morning for a blood test. HCG was only at 48.6 so I was pretty sure that I was miscarrying again. They had me come in again yesterday to see if it was doubling and it was at 118.3!!! So, now I'm really excited but also very nervous. I want this to work out SO BADLY but am so afraid to get my hopes up after the last pregnancy. They have scheduled me to come in for an ultrasound tomorrow. From my calculations, I will only be about 4 1/2 weeks at that point. I know that at that point you may or may not see a gestational sac so I'm a bit nervous and confused about why we are even doing it this early. Should just be happy I suppose! I'm still spotting a little but she said that is really common in early pregnancy. Can it just be 13 weeks already!

    Woo hoo!
    Congrats to you! I suffered a miscarriage in November and am pregnant now. I'm with you, very anxious and nervous but so happy and excited!

    I'll be around seven weeks when they do my ultrasound on the 14th, and I'm keeping all my fingers and toes crossed for good news as well. I hope that your ultrasound will show the sac and other signs of things moving along as they should.
    GOOD LUCK!
