Just a word, it's late and I have to go to bed, I do a big presentation tomorrow. But I wanted to tell you that I feel for you too. Those ER docs should be hung by the &%$/*"! Geez, they ALL do that. They see you cramp and/or bleed and scream "miscarriage" before you even have time to sit back up on the table. SHEEW!
I'm so glad the ultradound reassured you! During my last pregnancy, I lost huge clots and bled a lot, and the baby's heart was still beating strong. I also remember someone else, maybe on this thread, my memory is failing me, I've worked all evening... but she lost big clots and bled a lot, and thought everything was over, and was told so by the ER docs. Well she's still preggers and the baby is doing fine. The doc who wrote the pregnancy book I'm reading lost a huge pool of blood at 8 weeks when she was expecting her twins (she knew because her seat was soaked!). Turns out the babies were just fine.
Like you said, you stopped the PIO 5 days earlier, and that may have caused the bleeding. If you're like me, my doc told me my cervix is VERY fragile, by which she meant it's easy to make it bleed. So if they didn't see any hematoma or collection inside, the bleeding is probably not related to your beautiful babies!
I'm happy that the CVS test went okay. You really went through a lot during the last few days, and I really hope things just calm down and run smooooooothly this week. Put your feet up and entertain yourself sweetie, you've deserved it!
congrats on the nice ultrasound! Grow baby grow!
You're like my best friend. Her placenta is at the front of her uterus (belly side) so her doc told her not to freak out if she still feels no movement whatsoever at week 24... good to know! As for the medical assistant, they probably want to save time. The assistant will screen you for all sorts of things and do your medical history. Then his majesty the doc will only have to read the "important" stuff and get going with the physical checks and adress your concerns...
Congrats on the nice apt! How nice that your DH was there! I,ll do the prenatal tests on October 27th (ultrasound and blood tests).
Okay, really gotta go to bed...
Oh, by the way... I have a yeast infection. Was diagnosed by my new physician when she did the physical. Apparently, it's really important to check with your doc to make sure it's a yeast infection even if you know the symptoms. The pharmacist told me a yeast infection treatment for only a mild or false infection can harm the baby. The doc told me to take either Canesten or Monistat, but the 7 treatments formula. I checked with my clinic, and apparently you can take vaginal inserts for yeast infections along with the PIO. Lots of things to put in at night, but at least I know they're not interfering with each other. Believe me... brush your teeth BEFORE and rush to bed as soon as all that load is safe inside, lol! Thought I would share the info!
