sorry i was mia. (tmi) Update pg 2

Hi everyone, I?m back.

I was having trouble with my internet and got the flu. Both ends not fun, my daughter got it too! First time I have ever seen her throw up. It was an experience I will never forget.

Then yesterday I woke up with my underpants full of blood! We went in and found out that i have a tear in my placenta. The baby looked great though. It had a strong heartbeat, and was flipping and log rolling everywhere. It was great to see how much the baby changed in a week. Now you can see the head, body, legs, and arms. I also saw its butt! That was the silver lining. I am now on bed rest for an undetermined amount of time. I have to stay on bed rest for at least one week after the bleeding stops, whenever that will be.

The doc said that in most cases the tear will resolve itself if I lay low, but in some cases it gets bigger and you can lose the baby. I am soooo scarred. My daughter is also attached already, kissing the belly and being very possessive of the ultrasound pictures. I am thinking of getting my own fetal Doppler so I can hear the movement and placenta working and eventually the heartbeat. That will be a big reassurance for me.

I want to look up more information in it as soon as I can, just wanted to update you lovely ladies.

Sorry that things are not going according to plan. I know taking it easy an laying low is hard to do! But hopefully all will heal itself and things will be fine.

Hugs! How upsetting. I hope you're able to lay low and the tear heals itself. Do you have family who can help you with DD?

I'm sorry things haven't been going well. That's great that baby is nice and healthy though. Definitely rest!!!! It sounds like you have lots of help, so I'm sure things will heal up just fine.

Yikes so scary. Wishing for the best for you :vibes: And sorry about the flu, we had something similar to through our family when I was pg with my second and the only thing worse than going through it yourself is also having your baby have it (especially so young and they have no idea what's going on!).

Yeah, she wanted to keep playing and eating everything then she would lie down and whine if she did, then throw up. It was hard to watch and take care of her and clean up, especially when i was sick and the smell made me throw up too.

So sorry to hear about the tear but, it's so great that baby is flipping around in there! Take it easy. I know it's hard but find some good movies to watch and enjoy this time to relax.

I pray the tear resolves itself quickly and you are able to be done with bed rest. I'm sure that is miserable but glad to hear you have support with care for your little girl. It would be nearly impossible otherwise. :bigarmhug:

So the bleeding was worse over the weekend and i have had clots and cramping so i had to go in yesterday for another ultrasound. The baby was once again happy and healthy, but sleeping this time. We could also see the babies hands and feet today. They saw a possible abruption so i see a Perinatologist today at 2:30. I was also told i absolutely can not lift my daughter :(. i am just hoping for answers.

here is a pic from Thursday (9 weeks 5 days). like i described originally it is from the back of the baby and you can see the head body arms legs and butt. sooo cute.
