@Sally1981 really hope its nothing but a scare.
Well what an afternoon! Turned up to the ER and they couldn't do an us. Frantically rang around til we found somewhere to fit me in. Anyway, first sonographer took measurements and fetched a 2nd sonographer, who told me I was pg with twins but one was measuring 3 weeks behind. Measured a HB too. They called in the doctor who looked and said it was actually a clot, outside the sac. Other than that fetus measures 7+5 with a HB of 160. Does anyone know what this clot means for me? I've been tested negative for clotting disorders....
Wow!! It can just naturally happen (clots) and they can pass or be dissolved. or it may have been twins and one passed. I'm glad you got a scan. how scary though!!
At least you got to see a nice heartbeat! Even with the confusion i hope it helped ease your mind slightly.
As for me I had my first ob appointment and it has confirmed for me just how much I LOVE my obgyn! She's such a sweetheart and offered me a quick scan. She didn't measure anything because she didn't have a good quality machine but she said the sac is in the right place, it's the right shape, the blood flow to the sac is good and that "somebody is in there"! She said that everything looks really promising with my blood results. I don't want to jinx myself but it looks like I might actually be having a bub.
Here's hoping your clot is just a minor issue and not a second bub or anything like that. That would be devastating I'm just so happy that after all the stress your little one has such a strong heartbeat!
Sally - Did the dr not explain the clot? Definitely talk to ur gp obs about it.... not sure to ve honest. But yay on nice healthy heartbeat
Tazz- that's awesome you got to see something in obs office. my obs has a machine as well whixh hopefully next week means I get to see bub twice (still wishing hoping and praying all is still good in there)
@Sally1981 I had a massive bleed at 10.5 weeks which was thought was a threatened miscarriage turned out to be a placental bleed and I developed blood clot behind my placenta, which if it grew can then dislodge my placenta. It was eventually reabsorbed into my body by about 20 weeks or so but I bleed till about 15/16 weeks this pregnancy. I was on bed rest and pelvic rest (no sex, exercise etc) but I am a high risk pregnancy due to my past history loosing our DD2 at 20 weeks so this is probably an extreme treatment due to differing factors.
There was a informative thread on here about blood clot or sub-chronic heamatoas (sp) and a lot of people's stories if you can find that one it might give you some more information. Good luck.
Sally hopefully it's just absorbed and they keep an eye on it.
I had my nt bloods today.... Five sleeps till my scan.... Fingers crossed all is well
