After I dropped my son off at daycare, I slipped and fell down in the snow. I had continuing cramps for one and a half hours so I went to the doctor. I've also been having on/off cramps in the evening for the last 3 nights. The doctor on call did 2 ultrasounds, an abdominal and a transvaginal. Baby was moving around a lot and looks fine. My cervix length was great and there didn't appear to be any blood. She said it may be too early to see a clot on the U/S. She saw a little dark spot behind the placenta that she said "may" be a clot (she wasn't too concerned though). She was concerned that the placenta may be too close to the cervix. She recommended I move up my anatomy scan to next Friday at the hospital to get a better look at the placenta.

She also tried to find out gender, since I was already getting an u/s. First she was pretty sure it was a girl during the abdominal and then wasn't quite sure if it was a boy during the transvaginal since she couldn't get a good view (DH was so happy she couldn't tell! He wants to be there when we find out). After that, I sat being monitored for contractions, which I luckily wasn't having. When I was leaving she told me no lifting (including DS ) and that I could return to work tomorrow. The good news at the appt? No weight gain in the last 3 weeks This is going to be a really long week and a half until the anatomy scan.

I'm sorry that you have had to deal with the crampiness. I sure hope they can figure out what is going on. If DS gets a bit upset with you that you can't pick him up, then I would just let him know that you are not feeling well and you need him to help you and be a good boy. Just make sure that you stick with what the OB says to do.

They also might want to look at the ligaments surrounding the uterus too. I had alot of cramping and pain at 14 weeks with DS2, and come to find out that I pulled the ligaments there during a haircut sale. It essentially put me on bedrest for a week until they healed some, but I continued to have problems with them through the pregnancy.

Thanks so much ladies. The crampiness is slowly going away... hopefully tomorrow I will feel back to normal.
And about the gender, I still think it is a girl. The machine wasn't great but I could have sworn I saw 3 lines... with DS there was no doubt he was a boy... hmm, we shall see next week
