Had miscarriage... :(
Hi Ladies -
On Tuesday of this week, I started bleeding and cramping. So, I called the OB's office, and they had me get a blood test done. They got me in on Wednesday afternoon to review the results of the test and do an internal exam (ouch!). Sure enough, I was having an early miscarriage. I was only 4.5 weeks along. I'm still bleeding a little, but the cramping has subsided. I guess we're going to get right back on the bandwagon and try again. I asked the OB if he thought that the IC had something to do with it, and he said definitely not. These things just happen! Thanks for all your support. I am doing ok. Hopefully, I will get pg again quickly!
P.S. My horrible IC flare up subsided after my miscarriage. I think all of the pregnancy hormones were killing my bladder.~Valery~
Dx with IC 3/2009 - Cysto w/Hydro
Meds: Elmiron (400mg), Atarax (10mg), Elavil (20mg), Pyridium (as needed)

Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done,

As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.

and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever.]
