Hi everyone! I just kind of need to vent. I'm 5-6 weeks pregnant (last US dated me a little over 6 weeks) and I know many of you have seen that I had some cramping/bleeding at the beginning of my pregnancy on and off. Well Thursday I was driving home from work and all of a sudden I had the most INTENSE back cramps followed by an increase in (TMI) bright red blood. I'm talking more than a period. I went to the ER because the blood just continued to pouring (gross) out of me. Of course the ER doc scared me with 'well it could be a MC and if it is there is nothing we can do". They sent me for an US and found the baby and his/her heartbeat. The US tech said everything looked perfectly normal. The radiologist then came back and said they could see SCH and that would account for all of the bleeding and cramping. They reassured me everything was ok and sent me home. Well of course after that I couldn't sleep so I went to my RE the following day. The nurse at my RE was worried they wouldn't find a baby with all of the bleeding I was describing and sure enough when the US was done the baby was in there, looked perfect with his/her little heart beating away. I pleaded with the nurse and the doc to just be frank with me about my chances of MC occurring . They both said that while my amount of bleeding was pretty abrnomal that they were not worried about the baby. They said they could not see the SCH the radiologist was talking about, though. They said my chances of a live birth at this point were pretty high especially now that a heart beat is detected. I was taken off Crinone and put on PIO because they didn't want me putting anything up there to irritate things.
I am just so terrified. I am somewhat relieved that after 2 ultrasounds the baby is exactly where it needs to be, is growing appropriately and has a heartbeat. I'm STILL bleeding. While it is not as heavy as it was before, it's still very alarming. I'm having trouble staying calm. I was told to stay calm and lay low and my mind is just going to some very scary places. Maybe my doc has a bad machine and couldn't see the SCH? I don't know how I'm going to get through until next Wednesday for my next ultrasound.
