BABY IS FINE!! Heart rate was 164 bpm! The bleed is SMALLER!!! So it's slowly reabsorbing!! Baby measured in at 1.31cm 7 weeks 3 days exactly. Just on target.

The drs and I discussed my pregnancy. I'm high risk. He said though that other then these bleeds and preterm labour my body carries pregnancies very very well. No other problems. We'll have an u/s at 16 weeks, and 19-20 weeks, as well as a 3D u/s at 30 weeks. If I have anymore problems I'll have extra ultrasounds thrown in there. He also said we'll start cervix checks at 24 weeks and at 26 and 28 weeks I'll get doses of steroids to help baby's lungs.

All in all it was a GREAT apointment!!

That's great news!

How many weeks along did they get you in for your first ultrasound? I am also considered high risk so I am wondering if they should already be checking me or not.
