Unplanned ultrasound yesterday
I called my MW yesterday because I'd been having some spotting off & on for 5 days. Majority of the time it was brown but a couple of times it was pink/red. I didn't call right away because with DS I also had some spotting around 8 weeks and was basically told that if something was happening, at that point there's nothing that can be done. And I would only notice the spotting on the toilet paper, never on my underwear. My pg symptoms were still there - sore boobs & nausea kicked in, but since it was continuing on every day, so I gave them a call. Of course my MW wasn't there so I saw one of her partners, who I actually really liked. I really didn't want anything internal done if she didn't feel it was necessary - I really felt things were OK but wanted someone to reassure me. And any time, especially early pregnancy, I have anything internal done - I spot even more!!!
Anyway, she wanted to do an exam. She did great, I hardly felt anything, but she did say that I have an area on my cervix where the blood vessels are clustered kind of like a strawberry spot. She couldn't see any bleeding, and actually I haven't had any spotting since then, but she said it's very likely that's what the cause was. Could have been aggravated by DH & I dtd 2 days before the spotting started?
And just to be safe, she wanted to do an ultrasound. I've never had an u/s this early & there really isn't much to see :) But, she said everything looked great. Size matches with my EDD by LMP. Heart beat was 124. Only thing abnormal was a large cyst on my right ovary, which I've never had problems with before, so I'll have to ask my MW about that at my appt in Feb.
It's a relief to know that everything is OK!!!
