Rough Day

Filed under: pregnancy — by lhoham @ 9:07 pm

Very quick update.

I had some bleeding around noon today. I obviously freaked out b/c it was much more than spotting. After falling apart crying, I went home to be with Ross. He called the doctor and they had us come right up there. They immediately did an ultrasound and we saw the heartbeat and saw that the baby was totally fine!!! Phew! I was not expecting to see a heartbeat at that point. They did a quick exam and she saw the blood, but couldn’t find where the bleeding was coming from. So I had to have a second more thorough ultrasound. That showed that the baby is, indeed, fine, but that I have a sub-clonic (sp) hematoma – a bleed somewhere outside my uterus. I am on modified bedrest until further notice and will be out of work. I’ll be working that out tomorrow. I’m having some pain, but not horrible. So far, I have not had much more bleeding. They said I may have more from the site, but it could also re-absorb. I go back on Monday for a follow up. Luckily, my mom is coming tomorrow! Yay!!! We had great plans to go to the State Fair with a friend and a few other things, but now it will just be hanging out. Which is okay! The baby is fine and that’s all I care about!

I’ll try and update more tomorrow.

  2. Glad to hear it all turned out okay! Sub-chorionic hemorrhages are pretty common. It is scary, but you and the baby should be just fine!

  3. I hope you had a restful weekend and are feeling well! Good luck at today’s ultrasound, I’m glad everything turned out well last week, I’m sure that was very scary!
