99% sure

**WARNING** TMI for some of my readers

It has really helped me to be able to read back to my last miscarriage, for signs and symptoms. At this point I'm 99% sure I am having another miscarriage. I had been spotting since my last ultrasound, and it stopped in the middle of last week. ( so from 8 weeks - 9w4d) Carefully I was starting to have hope again that maybe I did get my dates wrong, and I was just not as far along. That hope was dashed this weekend. Saturday after I cleaned for a little while, I was having cramps similar to menstrual cramps. They would stop after sitting/laying on the couch, but start up again when I rode my bike, or pretty much did anything at all. Same thing on Sunday, until I started bleeding after standing up while cooking. The bleeding isn't very heavy, about the same as a period, but the cramps are persisting. Since it's still pretty early in the pregnancy, I know the doctors won't be able to do anything to stop a possible miscarriage. The best I can do is to wait for tomorrow's ultrasound to confirm the sad news, and to hopefully get some answers about how long it will take before we can try again.
