well, I had that colposcopy done today, I was lucky she didnt do any biopsy, so it wasn't too bad, a little uncomfortable & cold !!! But she said everything else looked really good.
then it was the routine q & a........then she dropped it on me....she said she was trying not to worry me, but she was concerned that the baby's HB was only 122, and she wanted to send me for another us asap to confirm viability.....I started to panic of course.....and then drove myself to the other offices in tears!!!
During the us the tech was quiet....so I kept panicking, then she said...oooh the hb is 171 !!! and the baby is wiggling all over! I am measuring 9 wks 2 days, not bad!
and she turned the monitor around so I could see....of course as son as she did that the baby stopped wiggling like it was posing for it's pictures!!! It was hysterical! Then after she took 4 pics, the baby started the wiggling again and nodded it's little head!....It was the most amazing thing I have ever seen in my life, I cried and laughed the entire way home !!!
I bet that you did get a bit of a scare when your ob wanted to send you for another u/s - but WOOHOO! Way to go baby! I bet you that bubs was sleeping when the heartrate reading was 122 - they are always a bit slower when sleeping (i can't remember what the average is, i did read it somewhere, something like 130-110bpm). At my 12w scan with Gaby, her h/b was 164bpm From memory, the h/b reaches its peak at 10w (it goes up on average 3bpm a day until then), and then it'll settle down to in between 120-160ish!
