We are ALMOST to 2nd trimester. Boy was this a hard week – feeling wise I am doing great; however, on Thursday of the week I went to the bathroom and there was blood. I am proud of myself I did not have a freak out or anything – though I could not understand why I would be bleeding. It was bright red which is worrying and it kept coming out when I wiped. First thing I did was get my at home doppler – and listened in. Both babies were doing great – heart rates were in the 140s plus I could hear them moving around. I felt a million times after that – so something caused me to bleed but the babies are good. Of course this is RIGHT after I announced the pregnancy to all of you. I will be honest it makes me feel more pressure that this news is public.
Next I called my OB office – I had a check in scheduled for the next week. The nurse was very nice but could not offer any real advice. The final decision was made that I would add an ultrasound to my visit the next week. This news slightly made me happy – since I was not planning on seeing them until 20 weeks. I asked if I could come in earlier and I got the answer there is little they could do if there is something wrong which is 100% but it is nerve wracking for me — longest 5 days of my life. I was so happy to have the doppler so I did little check ins daily till the ultrasound so that made me feel better. The worst part was the nurse kept calling the ultrasound a “fetus viability” ultrasound – which I know is the technical name but it broke me every time I heard it. I will post all about the ultrasound and results in the next update. In all it was an emotional week.
