I have a had a few rough weeks. Starting with last Monday, I went to the OB at USF for my appointment with the maternal fetal specialist and my 12 week ultrasound for the NFT (?) test. Well the u/s sound showed that my baby only had a heart rate of 105 which immediately sent me into flip out mode. I was very upset and after my meeting with the dr. She decided to take another look, this time the baby's hr was 145 and this put my mind to ease. On Friday, I woke up to some very light, mostly brown spotting, but again I went into flip out mode and instead of going to work, I went to the ER. Everything was fine and the ER dr. said that the baby was active, good heart rate and my hormone levels were good. He checked my cervix and there were not any signs of blood. I have been taking it easy at home today, but my belly and lower back are sore. Not crampy, just sore. I go back to USF on Monday for another u/s. Hopefully this one will be good. My baby is also measuring small. Yesterday at the ER, baby was measuring 11w2days when I was 12 weeks 4 days. I do have a very tilted uterus and I have read that, that can cause the baby to measure small. I sure hope that is the case here. Please keep my LO in your prayers.

Things still suck at work and my ex is still dragging us through court. My next court fate is May 17. I am so over all of this. My attorney says that I have nothing to worry about, but going through this alone is more than I can deal with on most days.

My depression is also in full swing right now, most days I have to literally force myself to put one foot in front of the other.

I've also read that a tilted uterus will make the baby measure smaller. I'm glad you're getting follow ups to help ease your mind.

Florida has definitely taken a no nonsense turn in family court, so hopefully your judge will be in that mindset.

I totally understand about the depression. I hope you keep on one foot in front of the other. Good luck, mama. Wishing you strength!
