Unexpected ultrasound today

I suffer from bipolar 2 along with r anxiety and panic disorder. I stopped taking my meds right when we started our IVF journey back in March. I've been ok with dealing with everything but I do still have my bad days. So yesterday I suffered a bad panic attack. I literally thought I was dying and ended up calling my husband at work and he left to come home to help me. A couple of hours after that I started spotting bright red blood and cramping and the left side of my lower abdomin started to get really tender especially to touch. I am 15 weeks and 5 days today. I thought I would wait until today to see how everything was going and when I woke up the spotting has almost completed stopped and cramping is not really there but I am still very tender on my left side. So I called my doctor and they said they needed to see me for an ultrasound. I am a FTM and kinda freaking out. I just hope everything is ok and it was just the panic attack that caused everything.

    I psychiatrist I know recently told me that some of her pregnant (ie off meds) bipolar patients do really well taking 1000mg of fish oil/DHA.
