Official update

The doctor's office called yesterday but I am just now getting around to posting as my computer is way slow for some reason.I had a friend of mine that fixes computers come over and he thinks it's my modem so I have to call the Internet company tomorrow, lets hope they replace it for free.Bad time for it is one of the only things getting me through bed rest.Well the nurse called and her report on the baby was the same as DH told me.And she said the baby is measuring ahead again.I was 9w6d at the u/s on Tuesday but they said the baby was measuring 10w2d that day. So that is encouraging as it means it is doing well. They gave me a closer due date of December 21st but I haven't changed my ticker as I want to see what the doctor has to say.They did however find something during the u/s apparently I have a subchorionic hematoma.I am unsure of the size at this point but I will get more info when I see the doctor on the 2nd of June until then I have googled it and not found as much as I would like on it. The nurse did say that I have to stay on bed rest and continue PIO at this point.They said that the hematoma can up the chance of miscarriage but doesn't mean I will have one either. Apparently it puts me more at risk as it is a tear in the placenta between it and the uterine wall and it could tear away more and then I could have a possible mc.We are praying for it to heal as sometimes they resolve themselves.They can stay and cause a women to bleed through her pg and still have a healthy baby. And lastly they can increase the chance of mc. If anyone out there knows anything about this or anyone that has had this could help me out with info about it I would greatly appreciate it.The second sac has not been ruled out as the cause of the pink fluid I lost last Tuesday, I will talk more to the OB about that on Tuesday.I ordered the doppler yesterday and the company says it was shipped yesterday so it should be here very soon.I think it will help give us some comfort through all this, before it was a want but now DH and I feel more like it's a need.We decided to purchase instead of renting as I found a company that sells them that was selling the same one that I was considering from another site that rents and sells them, but mine was cheaper. The site I used has a special for $20.00 off plus free shipping and a free digital thermometer with your purchase.Plus they include a storage case for the doppler and the other didn't say that it did.All in all it was a better deal.The price we paid was what it would cost to rent it for about 5 months. Considering we have just over 6 months to go it made since to just buy it and then we own it forever.We can use it for our next child too then.If anyone wants the site just let me know and I will pass it on to you.The sale I am sure is ending soon since it is a memorial day sale.But as of yesterday it was still going on.Well girls I am heading off of here for now but I am posting a 10 week belly shot before I do :-)

So glad things are going better. I remember when I was first Prego I had a doppler as well. I used it EVERY SINGLE morning and night! I really does give you peace of mind!!! I am praying that everything stays just as it should!!! Enjoy the time of rest cause after a baby rest is few and far between!!

Hi! I am 16 weeks pregnant with one baby through IVF, and at 7 weeks I started bleeding (felt a gush just like you did). We went in asap for an ultrasound with our re and found out it was a subchorionic hematoma. It was moderate size, and I had dark brown spotting every once in a while. I had my 16 week ultrasound yesterday and the hematoma was gone!! They usually resolve themselves by absorbing into the body or by coming out of the cervix. I stayed with my re until I was 11 weeks with them doing ultrasounds weekly, and then began going to my regular OB. They were not in the least bit concerned about the hematoma...they said they see them all the time. It is very scary, but don't read stuff you see on the internet. They are horror stories...there are plenty of women who have had these and had healthy full-term babies. Every week that goes by is good!! God bless and feel free to email me anytime at

You look adorable.
As far as the hemotoma I'm not sure so I can't help you there but I will pray for you to get better and for your baby to be safe. I'm glad the baby is doing good though and measuring ahead. Thats encouraging. Just do exactly what your doctor says. If your on bedrest be completely lazy.
