Sunday night I started having some cramping and pain. I tried to remain calm, as I've been having some digestive issues and I just thought maybe it was that. But after a few hours, I realized it felt different. A little more on the pain side as opposed to discomfort. I wasn't having any bleeding so that was good. I thought maybe I had a UTI? Anyways, I went to bed that night, barely slept from the pain/discomfort and was constantly in the bathroom checking for blood. Monday morning I was on my way to the fertility clinic just to sign some papers. So I called my OB and told them about my situation and they didn't seem that concerned since I wasn't bleeding. They said they didn't have any ultrasound openings that day, and it would be too early to check for a heartbeat on the doppler. But they said they could take me first thing in the morning and to go home and rest, lots of fluids, blah blah blah. The pain continued through the day/night. I wasn't doubled over or anything, just very very uncomfortable with twinges of pain and back pressure.
You better believe I was so scared for this appointment this morning. It's so hard not to think of all that could go wrong when you are having pain issues. I had my family freaking out too. I kept having visions of me leaving the office in tears. But I prayed so hard that everything would be okay with the baby!
And it was :)
The baby is doing great! Heart beat is good and it was even moving around a bit today :) The u/s tech said "this baby has some attitude already." Because every time she'd try to get a good picture the baby would move or hide :) She even started out doing the u/s on my stomach which was cool, because I'm so sick of the dildo cam. And when she let us listen to the heart beat I burst out in tears, just so relieved that it was still going. But then later she had to do an internal ultrasound to check my cervix for anything that might be causing the pain. The hematoma has gotten a lot smaller but is still there.
So, thankfully baby is doing well but they can't pinpoint what's causing the pain. My UTI test came back negative and so they think it's just digestion issues or pregnancy stretching. Also, today I had an appointment with my primary doctor for a check up and had to wait over an hour in the waiting room! It was okay though, he's a nice guy and takes his time with his patients. But good thing I didn't have to be anywhere.
I'm so doctored out. I basically collapsed on the couch when I got home. But I am so happy that our little miracle is doing just fine :) Thank you GOD!
I just wanted to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my friend Kristen! She is such a special friend and one of my biggest cheerleaders! Love you! I hope your birthday wish comes true :)
