Yesterday was our 12 week nuchal translucency ultrasound. The coolest part of the scan was seeing him bounce around. The baby was not cooperating, so they couldn’t get the nasal bone measurement. They had me go pee, go for a walk, lay on my side, etc. He was facing back up and would not flip. We didn’t get many good photos due to his positioning.
He (I’m still just going with he until we know different) is measuring 12 weeks, 2 days with a heartbeat of 157 bpm.
Yesterday was a shitty day for me with the nausea. I felt like crap all day long even on the Diclectin. Some days, it helps. Other days, it barely does anything.
Anyway, I was laying in bed last night and let out a huge sneeze – you know one of those ones you have to brace yourself for. I got up to pee, came back to bed and bent over to check a spot that was bothering on my leg. All of a sudden I felt a huge gush. I put my hand between my legs and I was bleeding. I ran to the bathroom. After 4 wipes or so, the red blood stopped. I waited 10 minutes to check again and it had turned to brown. This morning, it’s still light brown.
I keep trying to tell myself it’s just a sensitive cervix thing again (like the constipation bleed, maybe the sneeze caused it?), but I am worried. It’s Good Friday here in Canada – a Stat Holiday – so I won’t be able to see my OB. I don’t want to be that crazy one who goes to the ER since the bleeding has stopped. Our OB appointment is next Thursday. I’m going to try to hold out til then, but if it still worries me I may call on Monday.
Please little baby. Hang in there. Please universe – stop freaking me out! I’m not sure what lesson you are trying to teach me. Patience? Trust? Either way, I’d appreciate less worry-inducing episodes!
I kept saying I wouldn’t buy a doppler, but I think I’ve changed my mind. I checked our local online classifieds and wasn’t able to find a used one. Any recommendations for where to get one in Canada?
