Well after my scare last week of spotting and cramping and going in to get an u/s and seeing that all was well, I was trying to take it easy. Things were going relatively well (still had a little brown spotting from time to time, but nothing major), until last night. I went to take my progesterone before bed and discovered bright red blood. I was hysterical. This was exactly how my last m/c started. I wiped away what blood was there and DH and I had a good cry. I then put a call into the on-call IVF doctor and he called me back a few minutes later. The good thing was, the bleeding had turned back to some brown spotting by the time he called. I thought for sure it was the start of heavy bleeding.
Anyway, he talked to me for a little bit and told me to come in this morning at 7:00am and he'd do a scan and see what was going on. Well, I went and sure enough there was my little bean with it's heart beating away. I thought for sure we'd find no h/b and I was so relieved I just started to ball my eyes out.
He measured for me and it's exactly at 7weeks which is exactly where I'm at today. The heart rate was 137BPM which is good for 7 weeks. He gave me a couple of pictures but they are really not good at all. I don't have a scanner to get them posted and I can't get a decent shot of them on my digital.
So, another scary time for me but I made it through again. It looks like I'm just going to have to put up with the spotting and cramping and try not to stress too much over it.
My 8 week scan is still scheduled for Monday - that's the biggie for me. If I make it past that one, then I've made it farther then I ever have before.
oh gee, I can imagine that that would have freaked you out incredibly - but YAY on your little bean measuring spot on, and a nice strong heartbeat!!!!!!!!!! I wish that you didn't have to go through all of this stress though.... Sending LOTS of sticky vibes your way!!!!
I'm so sorry you are having to go through this!!! It sounds exactly like what I went through and I know how stressful that was!! Like me, I pray you have a wonderful outcome and soon have your little miracle baby!!!
