I'm so afriad to jinx this . I miscarried a few months ago at 9 weeks and am currently a little over 7 weeks pregnant.

I've had several bleeding episodes (fresh, lots) in the last two weeks. Turns out I have a subchorionic bleed, meaning a tear (hole) in the outer sac of the baby that's bleeding into my uterus and thus coming out of me every once in while. I've been to told to not lift (my 17 month old is coping) and to take it easy, which is certainly more easy on the weekends . Anyway, we saw a healthy heartbeat last week and I go for another sonogram at 10 weeks (on 8/5) to see if the baby is holding up and how the hole is managing. Sometimes these things fix themselves and other times they linger.

So, I'm nervous, but I'm here!
