Also, if you are over pink bluebird, I'm loving neutrals like creams and greys on baby girls. Like little cream stockings!! I do love pink too though as this is my first girl, but pastel pink not bright. Swoon.
Good luck with your diabetes tests! I would not will it on anyone. I got diagnosed at 10 weeks and find it really hard. Can't wait for the bubba to be born for the GD to go away.
Hi ladies I'm chasing some advice..
I'm in the hospital having a threatened miscarriage (10 weeks) I started bleeding and cramping yesterday afternoon. My OB did a scan and checked my cervix, baby was good cervix was closed. He said it could be an implantation bleed but we are treating it as a threatened miscarriage.
The cramping eased off last night and the bleeding has lessened. I see my OB this morning I'm trying not to freak out but at the same time I don't want to get my hopes up.... I suppose I'm just chasing any advice.. Good or bad.
So I dunno.....any chance there could've been a twinnie hiding in there? I'm guessing you've had a few scans by now because of your history so probably not?
Maybe you had a sub chorionic haematoma?...I don't think they're all that rare? I had a smallish one when I was pregnant with my dd and it was only picked up at my 3D 12 week scan. Even though I had had several scans by then with my Fertility Specialist in his office. The radiographer technician said that it was at a size that my body should be able to re-absorb it but to not be too worried if I experience some more bleeding (I had had a bleed at 10 weeks which filled 4 panty-liners with some period pain but only tiny dark clots). They checked for it again at my 20 week scan and it was gone.
There are definitely plenty of stories out there where girls have experienced similar to what you just have and it all turned out ok so definitely not time to lose hope Hun One of my friends who is a mum of 3 boys had a massive bright- red-clot bleed with her second of which she now has a very energetic pre-schooler.
You sound like you're in good care so rest up, get second and third opinions if you feel it necessary and follow the experts advice. Vent away if you need to! I have everything crossed for you xoxo
Thanks ladies x
I'm home now. I saw my OB and had another scan, the baby is a-ok heartbeating and wriggling around, the scan is now showing the place where there was an implantation bleed (thank god I have some kind of answer) so my OB said I would have a bit more bleeding and I'm on bed rest for the weekend and I have to start progesterone pessaries and another scan on Tuesday. My bleed has been measured (on the scan) and will be checked again on Tuesday.
I'm feeling immense relief as with the cramping and amount of bleeding I was having I thought I was miscarrying for sure, but at the same time I don't feel like I'm by any means in the clear.
I think this pregnancy is going to be a day by day.
