Crissylove: Checking in to see how you are doing? I am having issues with bleeding as well. SCH (subchorionic hematoma) just like you.
I have been on one form of bed rest or another for almost 6 weeks (1/2 of my pregnancy!!!) and am looking at at least 2 more weeks ahead...whenever I am too active...like I tried to go to work one day about 3 weeks ago and BOOM terribly bleeding. It was so bad that time DH and I went to ER. I was convinced it was over because of the sheer amount of blood. Then last Friday, after the NT--more gushing (sorry for TMI). If it was brown and "old" I could deal with it--in fact that is what I have most days now, but the gushing red is too scary. I really hope that my SCH shrinks. I know they can reabsorb and go away---I just hope that it is sooner rather than later. I also hope that you are doing ok and that your bean is as well.
Nancy: Thanks for the welcome. Yes. I am nauseous most days until about noon--but very little actual throwing up so I can't complain. I know so women have it very bad. Yes, we are very excited--except this bed rest is really a drag....and my boss is not very understanding. BUT, I will do what I need to do! We have come too far, and been through too much to put this pregnancy at risk! Glad to hear the OT is going well with your little one.
Mamaboo: Is your nausea getting better? Mine seems to be slowly...you are about 5 days behind me as I am due 11/23. Although as my OB said yesterday...."38 weeks would be fabulous, but I'd be ok if you can make it to 36...heck, I bet you'd be happy to have them at 36 too once you get there!"
AFM: As I said above to Crissy, this SCH has me down for the count. It seems very sensitive to my activity. Bed rest is boring, but I will do whatever I have to do to keep my 2 little plums securely planted.
I haven't gained any weight really--lost 5 lbs in first few weeks and have gained back 2..maybe 3? But my belly is poking out regardless! Maybe it is because I have 2 plums planted in there....how are you ladies looking?
