First Ultrasound!!!!!!!!!

Yesterday after work I headed to TN to meet DH at the hotel for our ultrasound today. Well after getting there, going to dinner and finally getting to the hotel room I went to the bathroom and there it was – a lot more pink/red then before. This time really concerned me, but after three wipes during my 1000 wipe-athon, the blood quit. So this morning, nervous as ever, we headed to the fertility clinic.

My appointment was 10:15, the first thing was blood work then I finally get called to head back to the u/s room. I am already sick to my stomach because I have been bleeding, but sitting in that room for a half hour really played with my head. I was thinking the worst and just figured I was losing my baby.

Well he finally came in and while starring at the monitor I seen it.. .I KNEW that was my baby. He pointed out everything and it was just perfect for the stage we are at. The bad news – there was a “mass” which he thinks is a second pregnancy that is miscarrying or “not viable”. This or implantation could explain the bleeding. So, even though I am sad that I am losing one of them, I am extremely happy that the other one is “just perfect”. The dr and Dh both said they could see a heart beat. I couldn’t see anything – but the next one I should be able to see the heart beat. Next appointment is March 1st .

Today I’m having very little spotting – but it is still freaking me out even though he told me not to worry unless I have “period like bleeding”. I just can’t wait until everything is okay and I can quit worrying, I figured that would be in about 9 months…

Best news - I'm off PIO shots as of today, I start oral pills tonight for the next two weeks. Blood work came back today and my Progesterone was greater than 40 and beta is 4533.

So happy and grateful for you that you have a healthy one in there! Glad they feel there is an explanation for the bleeding, I know the sight of blood right now is a horrifying thing.

I meant to ask earlier, are they giving your oral pills for progesterone (to replace the injectible PIO?)

jp said...

That is something I can hopefully look forward to! Thanks!!!

Whew! I'm glad to hear some good news. And from what I hear, the worry thing doesn't go away after they're born, it just becomes different worries. Lovely thought, isn't it?

And thanks for your kind thoughts earlier this week. I really appreciate it.

Great to hear that the u/s went well!! Are you counting the days until March 1? The bleeding really must have had you feaked out. I'm sorry you had to go through that.

Such good news. I'm sure it was really scary and sad that you were losing one. But I'm so glad the other is doing well!!

YAY no more PIO shots!

I'm sorry that all of this has freaked you out so badly - understandably of course! I'm glad that you saw what you needed to see though...don't worry...I couldn't see a thing when they first showed me the heart and I felt guilty, but I'm not who counts...it's the people with the white coats who need to see good things. Glad to hear that you got some answers!
