Sonup - Sticky thoughts are on their way!
heather - yay for 10 weeks!! :
We had our u/s today (we are 10w4d) and it was a-m-a-z-i-n-g!!! The fertility clinic was trying out a new machine, so we got to see a 3D ultrasound of our baby! It was soooooo cool! She was moving around and put her hand or fingers or thumb in her mouth!! It seems so bizarre, especially because I am not carrying the baby, but I love her so much already. Seeing her swim around in there was the most amazing thing I have ever seen.
Now for the other news, M has a hematoma, smaller than the baby. She is on bedrest for a week and we go back for another u/s next week. The technician scared the crap out of us about it, but the doc (not our usual RE) was pretty nonchalant about it. I goggled it and scared the ever living out of myself and I have now sworn off goggling. But how serious is it? Is there a large chance of m/c?
On my u/s a few weeks ago the tech could see a hematoma. The dr. called me after the appt. to make sure I wasn't worried. She said it was very small and would likely reabsorb. I was not put on bedrest. Starting last Thursday (very scary day) I had dark spotting. I went in for another u/s and it showed everything was fine. The hematoma is no longer there. I keep telling myself this spotting is just that blood working its way out.
I also scared myself by goggling and then I asked if anyone else had been diagnosed with a hematoma on a big board. The stories were very comforting. I must have had 20 replies and they all said it caused no problems in the long run. I believe they are probably more common then anyone realizes, but they go undetected because most women don't have early u/s.
