I’m so pleased to report that today’s scan at 11 weeks exactly went well!
I told the doctor all about the bleed and he was understandably keen to do the scan, so we got straight to it and instantly could see that baby was dancing around happily. Massive relief!! The doctor took his measurements and he measured 11 weeks 1 day, which is great, with a heartbeat of 176bpm. Again, more relief.
The doctor had a thorough check around and couldn’t see any cause for the bleeding, so he said that most likely whatever it was that caused it has now passed. He also couldn’t see any other areas of concern/haematomas, which was also a relief. He said that I might continue to bleed a bit, which is normal as it takes a while for anything that’s still there to work its way out, but as of today I’m just passing very small amounts of old, dark blood, so I’m hoping that’s all I’ll have.
He said that he’s very happy with how things look, which was a relief. He said that I can carry on with life as normal and don’t need to be on bed rest or anything, which is good. He said that bleeding can happen, which I already knew, but I can’t believe how much blood I lost and that all is still ok. I’m so grateful that baby wasn’t in the way and that he’s just happily plodded on with all this craziness around him!!!
Thank you for everyone’s kind comments the last few days, I really appreciate it. I’ve got my NHS scan on Thursday next week, so fingers crossed for an uneventful week until then, and now for a well earned rest!!
