God's hands are the perfect place to place your fears. Congrats, momma! This is great news. So many of my friends are pregnant right now, in fact, my best friend just found out she's having twins. A lot of blessings on the way!

Congrats! I'm right about where you are. We had an ultrasound last Friday based on my climbing hcg levels (doc said at 5000 they should be able to see heartbeat, I was over 4000 2 days prior to ultrasound) but it was too early to see a heartbeat. We go this Friday to hopefully see a heartbeat. It's very exciting and like Looking for Answers said I know tons of women that are pregnant right now. Baby fever is in the air!

I'm so sorry Rachel, I really hope you aren't having a miscarriage, but i will be praying for you either way.

I had a miscarriage last year and it was really hard. Let me know how you are doing. ~Sometimes life is really hard to understand - it's hard to see what God has planned in it all. I still have a hard time with it at times.

I'm sure it must be hard for you tonight... having to wait for the test results. I'll definitely be praying for you tonight.

~Sarah

It is good you have such a loving hubby. Hang onto each other right now. You two will get through this, even though it seems impossible right now.

Rachel, people will try to be comforting, but will say things to you like "maybe it wasn't meant to be" and "you're young, you can have another"...they mean well, they are trying so hard to say what's right to make you feel better ....(it only made me feel worse). No one "gets it" unless they live it. Truth is, THIS baby is important to you and you will need to grieve the loss. Take time to heal, rest up and take good care of each other.

I am so so sorry for your loss. My sympathy to your hubby as well. It is hard, I know.

You have strong faith, I can tell. :) That's a very good thing.

I'm so sorry. I have had 4 miscarriages and each one was heart wrenching. I put it in Gods hands though and it helped me handle it. Hug that husband tight :)

    • I was diagnosed with celiac at the end of October. My DGP IgA was tested September 12th and was 127. I just got it retested and it was 135. I have been eating gluten free since I was diagnosed. I thought the numbers should be going down. How long does it usually take for the numbers to start dropping? Right now I feel like I must be getting cross contamination somewhere.
    • Diagnosed at 57
    • Lex_, Again I am afraid Ennis_Tx is right here. Ennis_tx eats right and is eating all the right things and still has to take/supplement with Magnesium. The magnesium is a clue?  We need magnesium to make energy. I like to say as chlorophyll is to photosynthesis for the plant so is Magnesium for/to the Animal(s). Meaning we will run down without it. It is said "we waste away without enough Magnesium" Dr. Carolyn Dean wrote the book "The Magnesium Miracle" because people genuinely feel terrific when they take it. they are able to make energy again and function properly but the question remains  why? are we low in it the first place if we need it so much. Iron plays the same role in the blood/respiration but people still get IDA. It turns out low stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and Iron. see this link about the role of gastric acid in Iron absorption. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7286584/ How do we know this.  . . well it is has been studied and proven. look no further than the FDA box warning on PPI's entitled "FDA Drug Safety Communication: Low magnesium levels can be associated with long-term use of Proton Pump Inhibitor drugs (PPIs)" https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm245011.htm now this takes about 6 months of use to become low in magnesium but being low in stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and why many people have to take it at 2x to 3x the RDA to get the desired effect. In fact the FDA says only stopping PPI's will reverses this condition.  Obviously  taking higher amount of Magnesium can help alleviate some of these symptom's but only raising the stomach acid will completely alleviate the condition. quoting "Although both patients' hypomagnesemia partially resolved with intravenous replacement, in both cases discontinuation of PPI treatment was necessary to stop ongoing symptoms and to stop magnesium loss." Hypomagnesimia is critically low Magnesiums akin to IDA. here is a thread about IDA and why this is so . . .  low stomach acid leads to low Iron levels. I think it will help explain why Celiac's often have to take Magnesium to help with their chronic fatigue symptom's. I hope this is helpful but when I helped my stomach acid levels my Magnesium begin to be better absorbed from the food I was eating. Nuts are good Magnesium sources especially Cashews and Almonds. So is chocolate hence Ennix_tx cocoa nibs etc. . . ***** this is not medical advice but I know taking Magnesium Citrate helped my energy levels. posterboy by the grace of God, 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things”        
    • Lots of people are diagnosed after 50 according to this https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3227015/  
    • Smaller meals throughout the day should help. I had the same problem but if it keeps up you may need to see the doctor again and get surgery. Anti-acids may help out too. It's been about 10 years since I had mine. Good luck.
