Another update

So first off the baby is fine.  I was sure he wouldn't be.  I didn't feel pregnant anymore and my stomach had gotten smaller.  When I saw his heartbeat I cried....I never thought I'd see that again.  I was so happy to see it.  I am 12w5ds and baby is measuring 13w1d so he's still growing well.

The possible reason for my stomach change is the 3cm follicles I had in my ovaries are deflated so my ovaries are finally getting smaller.  This could be the reason my tummy felt lighter and seemed smaller.

Now the reason for all the bleeding.  There are two possibilities.  One they don't see the hematoma anymore so that coulda bled out.  Two I have placenta previa so that can cause bleeding.  I have to get a lot more ultrasounds now to keep an eye on the placenta.  Which I'm not going to complain about.  We get to see the baby that much more.  I'm not worried my coworker has it and is almost full term now.  The only complication she had was the bleeding like I'm dealing with.  Her placenta didn't move so she has a scheduled Csection.  So if mine doesn't move I will need one as well.  I can live with that.  It's better then an emergency Csection.

Here is another picture of our baby.  You can see the profile of the face and the hand by the face.  I think it's so cool that you can see all five fingers.  We didn't get to see him move around as much this time because the tech was more focused on finding the problem.  I guess I can live with that since I will get to see him again in 2 weeks.

BTW I call the baby a "He" because it's easier and we really want a boy but we don't know the sex yet.  He will be a he till proven otherwise lol we would be very happy with a girl as well but would like a boy! =)

I had decided to call the midwife if I started bleeding red blood again.  My midwife wasn't on call and I really don't like the other one so I wanted to wait it out.  I know they can't prevent miscarriage so I really just wanted to wait till Monday.  Well about 45 mins ago I started bleeding red again.  So called the on call number and the midwife told me to try to wait till morning unless I fill 3 pads an hour.  Well I haven't filled one yet so I think I'll be able to wait till tomorrow.  I'm worried but not freaking out yet because I'm not in pain.  I just really hope our baby is jumping around on the screen tomorrow like it was last Monday! I will update you again tomorrow.

Bleeding again

Here we go again.  Except this time I'm even more worried.  I've been spotting brown for days but figured it was from stopping the crinone on Wednesday.  But now I am bleeding and its red.  I am blaming myself for this because it happened last night after I fell on ice.  I really hope I didn't hurt the baby.  And of course it's the weekend and I don't know what to do.  I am not cramping so I don't know if I'm bad enough for the ER.  Ugh I just wish it would stop!  Maybe it's all because I stopped the crinone but then do I start it again or just wait for it to stop once my body gets used to not having it.  I'm so worried I will do the wrong thing!  Help!

So we got an appt for an ultrasound after 3 calls to and from the OBs office.  Had to talk to the receptionist then the nurse twice all to answer the same questions over and over.  Then was told to get there ASAP.  Well I am over an hour away maybe they should have told me that on the first call!  Anyways it all worked out our baby is fine and was jumping as we watched him or her on the screen.  I really wish I would have taken my iPad to record it.  We did get a pic as you can see.  In this pic our baby was jumping and arching his or her back.

I am 11w5ds today but measuring 12 weeks.  The heart rate was 168.  They think the reason I was bleeding is because they found a small hematoma.  Hopefully the bleeding stops soon.  I am still spotting some.  We are just so glad our baby is ok.  We were so happy to see him or her today!  


Woke up to pee this morning at 5am like every other night/morning. I wasn't thinking anything was different till I looked at the TP and it was red and the toilet was pink. I of course freaked out and started crying. I was yelling "no I don't wanna lose our baby". No one could hear me unless it was loud enough for the neighbors to hear because G is at work. I did and didn't wanna call her. I needed her but didn't wanna make her upset at work. Well I was selfish and called but it did make me feel better. Now I wait for her to get home and the doctors office to open so we can check on our baby. I am really worried about him or her. I was on the couch all day yesterday. I wanted to clean but I had a headache which wouldn't go away. I am very thankful for this because I'd be blaming myself right now if I had been up doing a lot. I will update you guys as soon as I can.
