Had A Little Scare Yesterday

Yesterday afternoon my hubby and I had sex for the first time since I found out I was pregnant; I've just been so sick and miserable that I had ZERO interest in that. Once we were finished however, I discovered that I was bleeding bright red blood. I waited about 2 hours to see if it would stop and when it didn't I called the doctor's office. The bleeding was about the flow you would have at the very end of your period so the doctor had me come in that night. They tried to find the heartbeat using the doppler but didn't hear anything (couldn't hear it at my first appt. 2 weeks ago either). The doctor decided to order bloodwork to test my hormone levels and he ordered an ultrasound for this morning. I was a nervous wreck all night and could barely sleep because I was so worried. Thankfully my ultrasound showed a healthy, active, very alive and well 12 week 6 day old baby!!! The hearbeat was 156 bpm and my due date is now Dec. 2nd instead of the 4th. Seeing my little sweetie was so amazing and peaceful! I go back to the docs on Fri for a follow up and he may check my cervix to see if shows any areas of irritation and to find out if we can do the "deed" or if that's off limits for now.

Hugs!  Exciting that you got to see the baby, but what a journey to get to do it.  Take care.  :o)

Yay that he is alright!! Maybe you have my problem: low cervix. If that's the case, then that could have been the source of the bleeding...especially if it's been awhile since you have DTD.

Glad to hear your appointment went well and everything is ok. With my daughter Cadence they put us off sex for about two months in the middle cause I was bleeding they said I had a bruise on my placeta or possibly a small bleed and needed to be careful. Hope everything goes well on your friday appointment.
