Thank you PennyWhistle and Abraisme!
I saw a different OB this morning, and I must say she is a gem! Excellent bedside manner, not rushed at all, and very patient and comforting.
Hopefully I'll get my beta results in a few hours, she put a rush on it.
She did a pelvic exam with speculum and her finger, and she also saw the spotting and clot (and again it was like a period, more reddish and gooey). She said it was not active bleeding and my cervix is closed. She also did a belly ultrasound and saw the sac. Too soon for vaginal US since I just had one on Tuesday.
She told me that she's seen all sorts of cases - women who bled and had a healthy full term baby (one of those cases bled every day!), other whose hcg levels were low but had a healthy baby, others where bleeding was start of miscarriage.
She said we'll know more once we get the beta results, and if they aren't good I will come back and talk about next steps.
She reassured me that this is the worst part, b/c it's truly a "wait and see" period. I got a little teary eyed at one point and she gave me a hug and reassured me that no matter what happened I would be fine and we would get through it.
Pelvic rest, no heavy lifting...and wait and see.
thanks for reading and letting me share to get this off my chest.
