Back From U/S

Our little bean's heart is still beating. Thank you God. I was so terrified when we were in there, and our RE was so somber. I felt like I was going to throw up when he started lubing up the dildo cam. For a split second, all I could see was the sac and I freaked out, but then I saw the baby, and then I saw its heartbeat. And then I cried.

The RE also pointed out that the sac is high in my uterus and said that was a good sign.

I was also told that I should take as much time off work as possible for the rest of the week, which means I had to tell my boss what is going on :P The RE also said I have to call them at the end of the week to let them know if I am still spotting.

So, I don't feel completely out of the woods, but, I feel SO MUCH BETTER.

Im so glad to see your update, woohoo! And I dont know if anyone suggested this to you, but drink boat loads of water for the spotting. And if you are drinking alot, drink more :) Its supposed to help. Glad everything is ok and that you're going to be taking it easy!

Thank goodness! I've been stalking your blog for an update hoping this is what I would see (yay for a beating heartbeat and great sac positioning!)

Now - go relax!

Shannon, I did not know that about drinking water - I have actually been drinking less than I usually do because I've been nauseous, but I am going to make more of an effort to keep it up now. Thanks so much for the tip!

I'm so glad everything is ok with the baby. I know this probably won't be any comfort given what happened to you before, but I had several bouts of spotting early on in my pregnancy and my doctor wasn't concerned at all. They said it's very common and can be caused by lots of things - placenta implanting, irritation to the cervix, etc.

I still freaked out and cried every time it happened but it stopped around 7.5 weeks and has never returned.

I hope it stops for you and never rears it's ugly head again.
