16 weeks and 2 days
My apt. today was uneventful and the highlight was hearing the HB with a doppler. I actually don't go back for another month Hopefully, I will be able to hang on that long. He told me that I could come in more often after 22 weeks (time of my last loss) for reassurance. He said that he does not want to fiddle with the cerclage at this point by looking at it too much. He said just look out for the signs of pre-term labor.
No big U/S at 20 weeks. He does not do his U/S until 22-24 weeks. He said that you can see more at that time. DH is annoyed and wants to know the sex really bad I am in no big hurry myself because I am not going to buy anything. I *may* purchase a few things after 35 weeks, but will not have a shower until after the baby is born. I know that sounds crazy to some, but it will make me feel better and for the first few weeks you don't need to much anyway
I think you have a different protocal because you are one on a higher dose of Lovenox and like you said currently have clots. I am on Lovenox for preventive reasons because of my Factor V Leiden and higher tendency to clot in pregnancy.
Thanks for stopping by and checking on me :P

I had a scare on Thursday night
I started bleeding and it was more than spotting. Bright red too. So I went to the emergency room and waiting what seemed like a lifetime to get in. I started feeling contractions. Of course I was flipping out. They did a U/S and baby was fine. They did a pelvic and the cerclage was still in place and the cervix was shut. The emergency room doc said their was blood in the vaginal canal but not coming out of the cervix. He could not figure out the source of the bleeding. So he called my OB and I went home and was told to drink lots of water and stay off my feet. I see my OB in his office on Tuesday, since Monday is a holiday.
Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I am worried and going stir crazy laying in bed all day. I am really hoping that he does not order bedrest.

Had an apt with my OB today after the emergency room visit. He suspects the bleeding was due to one of the stiches cutting into my cervix. It is a sensitive area and being on the Lovenox would make me bleed more than the average bear. He is not sure why I had the contractions. At this point I wonder if I even did or if it was just in my mind Anyway, he said that it is not that uncommon to bleed post cerclage placement. Especially only a week after placement. The important thing is that the bleeding stopped and turned to brown quickly which it did.
It is so frustrating because there is nothing I can do but wait and try to take it easy. I just want to got to sleep and wake up and be past the point of viability so I can be sane again
On a good note, I did get the schedule the big U/S today. June 27th at 4:30 pm!

We made our first baby purchase
I know I swore I was not going to buy anything. Especially this early!!! But we just had to get it. A place for the baby to sleep is one thing we need before it comes.
1. We love it and the wood is very similar to our bedroom furniture
2. It was only $110.00 in the store. It's $289.00 online!
3. They have a year return policy with a receipt.

It's totally shi shi and impractical, but it's so cute
Hey there Kati, I saw your post on the Religious Discussion board and thought I'd stop by. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am thrilled for you that pregnancy finally happened and that all seems to be going well. How is your DH doing with it, and your DD?
Praying that you continue to have a healthy, happy, safe pregnancy. (((HUGS)))

Hi Tiffany and Christa
Thanks for stopping by
DD and DH are doing well. Thanks for your prayers. I need all I can get!
The big u/s is at Wednesday at 4:30 pm, so some of you may have to wait until late for an update. We are really excited!
My bad day is on Saturday. I will be at the same gestation as when I lost DS.
I have been dreading it. I don't know why it worries me so much? I think it's me just being paranoid
Happy thoughts right?
And all the positive thoughts I can give you!!!
