12 Weeks – Well isn’t This Just Awesome…

9 Dec

So two days – that was how long I had to revel in the awesome NT scan.

Warning: TMI Alert!

I woke up with morning with some major brown bleeding. Not just spots – there was gushing.

Honestly? I wasn’t that worried. I figured it was a result with my date with wandy a couple of days back.

But then, there was a clot. The bleeding stopped right after, but there was a clot.


First thing I did? Ran to the doppler and found a heartbeat. That calmed me down a bit, but I knew I needed more. I texted the Russian. His clinic is closed today but he told me to get my ass to an U/S ASAP.

So I called health services and found a doctor who saw patients on Friday (I couldn’t bare the thought of going to an ER), and off we went.

Shmaby is ok. Measuring 3 days ahead (!) and even waved hello to us (new pic up on the Shmaby page).

The emergency doc thinks the bleed is because the placenta is low, but he’s not sure that this is what caused it. Either way, he didn’t find any other cause and all looks well.

Just in case he ordered me on bed rest for a week. So that’s where we’re at. On the threshold of starting to enjoy this, and now bed rest and clots. Awesome.

We’ll be seeing the Russian on Monday. For now, I’m happy we got another peek and happier that we have a doppler in the house.


80% pizza to 20% Shmaby. I think.

    This is one of those times that I shake my fist at the universe and threaten it. Shmaby will be okay, damnit! Glad Shmaby looked good today and thinking of all of you ❤

    WHEW! So glad everything is okay. You had me worried for a second. I think that happens, though. I’ve heard from a few different women who had clots during their pregnancy. It scared the shit out of them, but in the end it was just a clot.

    Oh, Mo, I’m sorry. Bed rest sucks. Hopefully it’s just the one week and you’ll be back and running around! Where’d you get the doppler??

    One other thing … I gave you a Liebster award. 🙂

    I appreciate your post! Happy to see you and the baby is a ok! Bed rest is probably best. Enjoy this time with your baby.

    Shabbat Shalom. Keep it mellow and don’t give me another heart attack, ok, Shmaby???

    Love you guys.

    DUUUDE, universe!! Chill out on Mo, please!! Please watch lots of bad TV and have Schmerson wait on you. Argh. This frustrates me on your behalf…hoping for an awesome U/S.

    I’ve been thinking of you pretty much nonstop. So sorry about your scare, but glad to hear that things are okay. Sending you peaceful vibes and hoping for a very BORING pregnancy for you from here on out! xoxoxo

    I guess that doppler can be pretty damn handy. Hows the bed rest going? I hope everything is still all good.
