Awful day

I can't remember when I last updated, after my first ultrasound maybe?

I had the worst day yesterday. I started spotting Wednesday then yesterday it turned into fresh bleeding. It was like I was starting my period. I was so sure I was having a miscarriage. I called the nurse and she talked to the dr and said they wanted me to come in for an ultrasound. I walked in a hot mess, crying because I truly believed this was it. Nope! I have a subchiorionic hematoma.

I can't explain how shockingly wonderful it was to see that little heartbeat for the first time!

The dr said the hb was low but I only measured 5wks 5 days so I am hoping maybe the heart had just started beating and it will pick up on the next one. I go back Tuesday.

So I guess I'm going to have to deal with bleeding which stinks, but I'm so relieved. The SH is small so the dr thinks there is a good chance it will resolve. All we can do is wait and see. I was worried about the hb yesterday but I'm going to stay positive.

So despite all my fears I guess my mama instincts took over, I'm attached now and I just want my little bean to be ok. FX everything looks good on Tuesday.

  • So sorry, bleeding when pregnant is so scary. When I was about 5 weeks I had a huge gush of blood with clots and cramping, I was certain it was over. I was never diagnosed with an sh, but I think it had all bled out by the time I had an ultrasound a few days later. Now my LO is a sassy little 10 month old. T & P you have no more bleeding or complications
