I FINALLY have my 2nd u/s appt tomorrow. I have had 1 m/c at 7 weeks and one high-risk, but healthy pregnancy. At my 1st u/s, they said that it looked like the baby may have implanted on or near the septum (bicornuate uterus) which would mean that it would eventually run out of adequate blood supply and die. The sac & possible fetal pole was there at 5w4d, but measured 4w5d. I go tomorrow at 7w4d to check for proper growth and a heartbeat. I have been bleeding persistently for 2 weeks now. Every single day. Sometimes I feel that the progesterone suppositories are making it worse! (anyone ever hear of that?) I want to go to this appt so badly so that I finally know if the heart ever started beating, but at the same time I don't want to go and find out that the baby died. I'm an emotional train wreck. I'm making myself sick over this. Just needed to say all of that to someone!!!

It's at 1:00. The perinatology appts take a minimum of 3 hours total, so I won't be home until at least 4:30. I'll update as soon as I can. Thanks for your good thoughts!

Well, believe it or not, there is a baby in there with a heartbeat beating away. It measured to the exact day and its heart rate was 148. He said that there is a possibility that the bleeding is from the progesterone. So, hopefully that is what all of that nonsense is. He said that everything looks fine. So, I go back in 4 weeks. I'll be in my 2nd trimester & I'll have the ultrascreen done. Hopefully all continues well!

for all the

: that is great. Maybe you could do the progesterone by mouth instead of vaginal.
