Yesterday I had my 1st ultrasound. It was so exciting to go in and take a look to see how this little baby is doing. I am measuring about 6 weeks, which is right on and we saw the little heart beating! Seeing that little heartbeat is so amazing. It was so reassuring to see the heart beating after having all the spotting.
I spotted for a week and a half and while the Doctor was doing the ultrasound, he was able to see why. In my uterus, I have a very small blood clot called a Subchorionic Hematoma. Mine is so small that it shouldn't make my pregnancy more difficult or high risk. Either it will bleed out or my body will just absorb it. I go back for another ultrasound in 2 weeks to just see how it's doing.
In the meantime, I've been feeling very nauseous, tired and I've been having a horrible time sleeping. To me, all those pregnancy symptoms are reassuring. It just reminds me that our little baby is growing!
Here is a horrible picture I took of the ultrasound yesterday.
