heartbeats

Mine: back to normal.
The babies’: 160 and 125. There’s really two of them in there, measuring right on track. I can’t quite believe it yet.

There was also a gray mass that may or may not be a subchorionic hematoma. My doctor wasn’t really worried about it so I’ll try not to, either. She said it meant I’d probably experience more bleeding (which for the moment has reduced itself to spotting, fortunately), and that, if I noticed something triggered bleeding, to maybe avoid that. Other than that it appears there’s not much I can do that would actually change the outcome. I’ll go back in 2 weeks for another ultrasound with my IVF clinic, but in the meantime should already try to contact the OB to get an appointment with them.

  1. Weeeeee!!!! Yay! I am so, so happy for you! The first thing I did this morning was pop open my reader to check on you (i was on my phone all weekend and had a hard time commenting). I am so thrilled, not only to hear that all is well, but to hear that all is well with all three of you!! :D

    Also, good luck on your presentation today!

  2. What a huge relief. Bleeding while pregnant is SO darn scary and I’m not too thrilled you had to go through that. I hope that will be all for the bleeding.
    And TWINS!! I’m all smiles over here. Congratulations!

  3. Thanks for your sweet comment on my first blog post in two years! I was so happy to get this good news of yours today. TWINS!? Congratulations!

  4. I had to come back to comment officially on this amazing news. CONGRATULATIONS! With those betas, I’m not exactly shocked, but I am thrilled beyond words. You took a big scary risky plunge, and it paid off! I hope it was an incredible moment. That noise…those NOISES…one of the most beautiful things on earth.

  5. Hey, thanks for commenting on my blog! Congrats on TWINS! Not sure if you found my blog because of the subchroinic hemmorage, but if you do have SCH, then your best bet is to try to stay off your feet as much as possible. As my nurse put it, “it’s not quite bed rest……” Don’t carry heavy objects, don’t exercise, etc.

    1. Thank you! I’ve seen your post on the SCH — my doctor was more relaxed about it though. She thinks that this bleeding will not trigger a miscarriage that wouldn’t have happened anyway (which one may or may not find reassuring…) My SCH looks smaller than yours though, maybe that makes a difference. And I leave all the carrying of heavy stuff to my husband just in case.
