When I went to the doctor to confirm my pregnancy back in week 8, I believe it was, they found a subchorionic hematoma. That's a gathering of blood between the membranes of the placenta and the uterus. Some doctors will also just refer to it as a blood clot. I had to go back to the doctor every 2 weeks to get ultrasounds to check on the status of the bleed. I was also put on pelvic rest (no exercise, no lifting anything over 20 lbs (i.e Emily and R), etc...). I do not remember having this with the girls but apparently I did. Of course when you hear something like that you do all your research (i.e. you "Google that sh*t") and you worry. Every little twinge makes you worry. Well, I shall worry no more (about that at least) cause today they told me it's GONE!
I also got the results from the blood test for down syndrome and, after much worry, everything is great.
I also had the pleasure of having my Glucose test today. If you've experienced this test, you know I am being sarcastic. That drink takes me back to when I was a little kid drinking that orange drink from McDonald's. Holy sugar, Batman! Normally, that test is given between weeks 24 & 28 but because I have a history of Poly-cystic Ovary Syndrome, they like to be cautious and do the test early. If I remember correctly, I may even have to do it again between weeks 24 & 28. I haven't had Gestational Diabetes with either of the girls so the doctor isn't too worried.
Today was the first time I got to hear the baby's heartbeat and it was wonderful! :) The Ultrasound Tech tried to see if she could tell the sex of the baby but the baby was being stubborn. He/She was sitting Indian style and the tech couldn't get a good look. Have to wait till my next visit which will be the big 20 week ultrasound.
