I’m a complete mess!
I went in last night at 7:30pm for an ultrasound at around 5 weeks, 5 days – they could see a little tadpole 🙂 and a heartbeat of 188bpm! However, the ultrasound tech also noticed another sac of “fluid” next to the gestational sac, and said she wanted to look into it a bit more. So she left to speak with someone, and came back to tell me they were sending me down to the emergency room to get some follow up tests done.
I went to the ER and must have seen like 10 people…ugh, I have never been in the ER, and it sucks. I had like 5 vials of blood taken, my pressure taken like 3 time, had to take another HCG test (which was positive), then I had to lie on a bed while like 3 rounds of doctors came in – each time they kept me waiting for what felt like forever in between.
Towards the end, they had a gynocologist person come talk to me,and she explained that it is a subchorionic hemorrhage, and that it’s probably why I’ve been spotting. They checked to make sure my cervix was closed, and it was, and they said they could see no bleeding.
Then two more ladies came in and one was very nice, but the other looked like she just needed a nap. She was like, I just want you to understand that it’s a viable pregnancy, but that the chances are 50/50. I just had to hold back my tears! She was like, once you hear a heartbeat, the chances are better but we just have to wait it out. So I explained I had an ultrasound earlier and I saw the heartbeat, and she looked at me like, “really?”, then looked at the other nurse, who reconfirmed – do these people not talk to eachother!?
Well anyways, I left (at nearly 11pm!) feeling like this could go one way or another, and I’m just very sad. I was told to call my gynocologist that I had been seeing today and tell her about what happened, then to try to push up my first OB appt (right now its schecheduled for oct. 5).
I was told I would be having a lot of these tests now, to monitor the hemorrhage. Has anyone had this and had a successful pregnancy?
