Scary morning, but all is well

Just a quick update as things are busy busy.  This morning my heart stopped because I had some spotting and of course I started thinking the worst (like, damn it, I shouldn't have cut the tags off those maternity shorts, I did jinx myself!!).  I called my OB's office and they were super.  Even though it was pretty minimal they knew I was worried and that with the weekend and everything coming up they had me come in.  Not only did they do an exam, but they did a quick ultrasound and it felt like the biggest gift.  I was instantly relieved to see our little one bouncing around the screen and for the first time got to see little arms and legs and everything.  We also got to hear the heartbeat for the first time.  It was just such a relief.  I knew from the RE that I have a small subcorionic hematoma and the OB thinks that's where the spotting is coming from.  So I'm ordered to take it easy for the week and since hubby is actually off work (what a wonderful coincidence) that's exactly what I plan to do.  I want to write more, I'm just exhausted after a very busy week with family visiting and a very emotional day.  So good to know all is well in there though.  I will certainly sleep good tonight!


  1. So glad all is well. And sorry you had such a stressful time. Glad your doc understood!

  2. So glad all is ok! Spotting is so scary. Hugs to you.

  3. Oh I'm so glad you're alright! I had that happen early in my pregnancy and hearing the heartbeat and seeing my little one was a gift! Wishing you a relaxing evening and week ahead!
