Bleeding and Trip to the ER

Thank you Ladies for all your comments and prayers. The last few days have been crazy over here. I started spotting brown and red on Monday which slowly turned to light brown/red bleeding.

Yesterday morning, I woke up at 5am with severe chest pain on the left side. My left hand was hurting too. I thought it was the steroid (Prednisone) as it is known to cause heart burn and muscle cramps. We waited till 8 and since the pain wasn't getting any better we had to go to the Urgent Care. By the time we were there, the pain had become unbearable and the receptionist asks me if I am having a heart attack? Come on! How am I to know? I have never had this kind of pain before. I told the nurse that I was on Blood Thinners and Steroid for pregnancy. The doctor at the Urgent Care was too scared seeing the list of my "Fertility" medications. He spoke to my local NaPro doctor but he didn't know what was going on. He referred us to the ER. After waiting for 4 glorious hours at the ER writhing in pan, they did an EKG which appeared normal. They weren't of much help and thought the pain could have been from either of these meds. We came back home in the afternoon. I was too scared and exhausted after the day's events.

A nurse from PPVI called me with my Beta. It was kind of low at 82.2. I told her that I was bleeding and she told me to continue the Progesterone and get more blood work done. I stopped the Lovenox and Prednisone and contacted Dr. KK's office to let them know. I am waiting to hear from them. I feel dizzy and have a constant headache. I don't know if it is from the Prednsione withdrawal.

As I waited in the ER, I felt Jesus telling me to let go, to let go of all these treatments and meds. My husband too told me the same. There is a limit to what one can endure. I don't think we can continue this way. It needs to STOP some day and this looks like a clear sign from God. I went for another Beta HCG today. Will be knowing the results tomorrow. I feel kind of numb but I am thankful that yesterday's pain wasn't life-threatening. I have a feeling it's time to change my priorities. It's time to surrender. It's time to live my life in peace without worrying constantly. Please keep me in your prayers.
