So I went for an early ultrasound yesterday (6w 1d). I have been spotting throughout my pregnancy, so my doctor wanted to take a look to see if we could figure out what was wrong. She had warned me that I likely wouldn't see much, since the heartbeat doesn't usually appear until 7w, so I was managing my expectations.
But as soon as the internal u/s started, I could see a sac, a bean and a small flashing thing which was clearly a heartbeat! Even the ultrasound tech asked me if I could see it, and then assured me she wouldn't have said anything if she wasn't sure it was there. So it was very exciting!
Unfortunately, since I had the u/s, my spotting has gotten a bit heavier again. I am hoping it is only because of the internal u/s, and it will slow again, because as of yesterday it was almost 100% gone! I feel great otherwise, and it looks like baby is doing ok, so now I just have to wait until next week to hear back officially from the doctor on heart rate and size.
So please send positive thoughts my way - thanks and have a great weekend everyone!!!
