So I figured I should update you ladies on my week. I started spotting and having some back pain and stuff at work on Thursday and I just kind of freaked out since I hadn't been to the doctor yet and everything. SO I went to the ER. It sucked b/c they took 7 vials of blood and I had to have a catheter so they could do the u/s. And it hurt to pee for a few hours but anyway....saw the baby!! Everything looked great and the heart rate was 167. I have a subchoriatic hematoma or whatever, which I had with DS also. I'm so glad I went though b/c my doctor is only open from 9-12 on fridays. I had to go in to get my Rhogam shot on Friday and the nurse was saying they wouldn't have done an u/s at my appointment on the 13th unless they couldn't get they heartbeat on the doppler. I am only going to be 9 weeks something so that seems really nervewracking and annoying. Seeing the baby in the early stages is just necessary for my sanity.

So sorry to hear you went through all that, but so so happy to hear all is well. I know what you mean, the first tri is so scary with no scary signs ... it's so nice to be able to see the baby and know all looks well. :bigarmhug:
