Well, I finally had my ultrasound today!
I was very worried that the baby might not be ok after all the bleeding I have had (it's been 2 weeks now) but the baby was looking great! They found a clot of blood pooling over the cervix, and the doctor said it looked like there had probably been a tear in the placenta that had bled but was no longer bleeding. She said I'll probably continue to have spotting for a while, but as long as it stops by 20 weeks it's nothing to worry about. She said just continue to rest & stay off my feet as much as possible for at least another week, assuming the bleeding does not get worse. So that's a relief for me.
She said there were no signs of Down syndrome, but I decided to have the amnio anyway, just based on the blood test. I am not that worried about the results though. I was closing my eyes during the amnio, but DH was watching the baby & he said the baby was grabbing the needle. Kind of scary, but the doctor said they often do that.
And the exciting news.....it's a girl! It was pretty obvious, after seeing "boy parts" on two ultrasounds before, this one looked totally different. I am totally in shock cause I really expected a boy, but very excited!
