I got a phone call from my friend this morning. I knew that she was in for her other ultra sound yesterday, so while she was speaking, I tried to discern if she had good news or bad news to share.
She began the conversation with some details about some plans that we had this weekend and some other family involvements that she has going. And then she said, “Now you know I had my ultra sound yesterday.” And her voice sounded happy!
Well, according to the report results that she got this morning everything looks GREAT!! Totally normal for a pregnancy of this length. She is over the moon and giggling.
So, of course, I’m wondering. What was all of this for? What was all of this about? All of the tears and worry and now all of the laughter and relief. All of the emotions that you can go through in a day that you can go through.
Now she is saving the cosmo ingredients for when the baby is 6 months and she has stopped nursing.
Here is an explanation from storknet
There are many reasons for vaginal bleeding during the first trimester, some are serious and significant, some are less serious and pose no threat to the pregnancy. The most benign type of bleeding is called “implantation bleeding”. This is bleeding from the site in the uterus where the developing fetus has chosen to implant. It is painless bleeding and occurs often. Your OBGYN will more than likely ask that you restrict heavy activity, and avoid sex. You may also be placed on modified bedrest to increase the chances of a better implantation. Occasionally, an early ultrasound, or sonogram will be ordered to make sure that the pregnancy is proceeding normally. This type of bleeding is also referred to as “threatened miscarriage”, since there is always a possibility that the bleeding will increase in severity and that the pregnancy will miscarry. There are no medications or treatments that will make you “hold” a pregnancy. Increased bleeding, passage of clots, and the presence of worsening lower abdominal cramps are signs of impending miscarriage, and must be reported to your OBGYN immediately.
