Still monkeying around

Well where should I begin.I called my OB's office today with a question and it was "would I get the results of the u/s today?" Their response was "no, the tech at the hospital is not allowed to tell you anything,the results are relayed to the doctor and then they will interpret them and call you" She said she understood and was sorry but it was policy.So that frustrated me from the get go.So hubby and I devised a plan to get as much info on our own as possible.After all it's our baby and all we wanted to know was if it was still alive.So I assigned him a job of not taking his eyes off the monitor, I said don't worry about me watch the monitor.We have had 3 u/s before today so we have become attuned to finding the measurements and what a lot of it means.I told him whatever you do look for the bpm and the measurements in centimeters.We both also know what the heartbeat/flicker looks like and I warned him that they would not be turning on the sound so please look closely.I knew that it would be hard for me to see anything good as they were not doing this u/s to show me anything but to create a report for the doctor.I knew me laying on my back looking at the screen sideways and not having it pointed exactly towards me would make it harder for me to have a could view of numbers etc.So she started the u/s (my first abdominal one ever, I was expecting another vaginal one but was glad for the change)I thought I would at least see if she could tell me the size of the baby or how it was etc ( i had to try), but as they had said she said "I can't tell you anything it's against policy, I 'm sorry".So she was moving right along taking all the pics and getting several shots, she was moving very fast through it all.And then there was a great shot of the baby (which I was able to see) and all of the sudden it jumped! I mean jumped like it was dancing. I said did the baby just move? And DH said very confidently "Yes it did".The tech then said that "sometimes you get the answers to your own questions" Which we took as a affirmative answer to if the baby was okay. The baby also waved an arm it was so cute.I cried after the first shot of the baby dancing it felt like a huge wave of relief came over me.DH said he saw the baby kick a leg too later after the wave.After everything was all done and the lady was out of ear shot DH said "BPM were 182 and the size is 3.39 cm.And I saw the heartbeat" I was so proud of him that he got all the info that his worried wife needed.We said later that our baby was making sure to show it's mommy that it was ok and that even if the tech wouldn't tell us it was ok that it would show the tech up by making it obvious for us and doing a little dance, wave and kick.I already knew what size the baby needed to be approximately to have grown like it was supposed to over the 5 days since the last u/s. The average size at 10 weeks is 3.1 and our was 3.39cm at 9w6d, just a day short of 10 weeks. But either way it is growing wonderful and a bit ahead. The Bpm/hear beat was at 182 which is the same as the u/s we had 5 days ago. And the heartbeat needs to be at least 150 bpm so again the heartbeat was great. I have had no new blood only old discharge that is brown/rust and tan colored.I am beginning to think that it was a second sac like my OB wondered.I was talking to dh a few days ago and I said remember our last(normal)appointment at the RE, the one where they released me to the OB?" "Remember when they were doing the u/s and the RE saw something on the left side of me and kept saying I wonder what that is,what is that, hmm that must be her ovary."I was in a decent amount of pain when he was pressing on my abdomen trying to get my ovary or whatever was in a better view. I had a lot of tenderness that reminded me of cysts I have had.He finally dismissed it as just being my ovary but never really was sure. He asked the intern what she thought, of course she really didn't say anything only agreed with him.That whole u/s and appointment was one week before the bleeding incident on last Thursday.So I am now wondering if what they saw was an extra sac since after I went in on Thursday he never mentioned seeing that on my left side that time and had no trouble finding my ovaries and the matching cysts on them in mere seconds.Nothing like that appointment when he was digging around with the vaginal u/s and pushing on my abdomen to try to see things better.So there you have it girls our little monkey is still monkeying around.It's jumping and dancing in its mommy's tummy and doing well. PRAISE GOD!!! I am still on bedrest and PIO shots.I will talk to the OB office when they call tomorrow with my official results. Thank you all again for your continued prayers and support I really appreciate them.((HUGS))
