It's gonna be a long-ass 11 days.

So it begins...bright red bleeding and 2 large coin sized clots. I texted hubs and he came straight home so I could hit up the ER for a scan. What a fucking mistake that was...again!! Idk why I go there. I always leave more upset than when I walked in. I should've just slapped on a pad and stuck it out with my doppler til I could see a Dr with an actual clue about what he's doing. Unfortunately, I won't be seeing him til the 11th.

Here's what I took away from today's ER trip. I saw baby on the ultrasound. Crl was 4.13cm and he's measuring 11w0d. She measured him a few times (I don't actually know gender, I hate saying "baby" and "it" all the time) and it kept coming up the same. Ok fine, he's ahead by a few days. Great! Grow as big as u want!! Then she's taking sac measurements, which I didn't see a number for, but it was coming up 8w6d. Not fucking cool! She did that a few times and it stayed the same. FHR was 185bpm and baby was super active. There were long-ass legs and arms everywhere. It was cute to see. And he wasn't blurry...that was awesome! Anyways, I waited over an hour for the Dr to tell me that I have a SCH behind the placenta and I'm 8wks pregnant. Umm, huh? I had a scan 2wks ago this Monday that said 9wks, somehow my pregnancy devolved by almost 3wks. At this rate, he'll be an egg and sperm by January. Wtff? I honestly don't know why I even went. I'm better off guessing for myself. One more thing to add to my list of things to bring up with my OB. I can almost guaranty he'll be hauling out the portable u/s to look for himself. He's told me in the past to ignore what they say, he just wants the bloodwork from them (cuz it's faster).

I am worried about the sac issue tho. She focused on it a lot and it wasn't beautifully rounded. It was very elongated and 2wks behind. Or was it?! Who knows!?!

I have to call and confirm my OB appt on Monday or so, so I'm gonna ask if they want me to cancel my 12wk scan at that craptacular place, or keep it. I'd like to keep it and settle for a blurry pic and to see baby moving...but this could also lead to even worse results becuz clearly the technology is lacking.

Idk. Needed to vent a bit. Hope ur all well! =))

Thanks, Sonata! =))
I had a SCH with my 3rd, it was massive and bled for weeks. It never bled out tho. It was there til I gave birth and a cpl cycles after. I had unsourced bleeding with Eden as well. I'm convinced that was my body attempting to miscarry her cuz it all started around the time the organs didn't form correctly. Just my opinion tho, I never asked anyone. Anyways I got to see babe today, all looks well with him (or her) so I choose to focus on that and leave the other stuff to the ppl who trained in it. No more Dr Google to upset me. =))

I’m so sorry you’re dealing with this crap!! Idk how the baby could measure so nice and big and the sac small. I had a sch last time that resolvedin a week. I’m sure seeing the blood is terrifying!!! Hope you can focus on the heartbeat and baby in there until you know more.

Thanks, Kitten, Angela and Erica. Hope ur all doing well! =))

Well I called my OB to confirm my appt. It's still Dec 11 but they sent in for my NT at their place and called me back in 10 mins with an appt. So, NT is Wed afternoon and I am to cancel the scan at the other place. They're going with my LMP for dates right now becuz he doesn't know or deal with that clinic so hasn't built that trust in their scans (polite way of saying they suck ass). Yay! So I won't have results immediately but he'll have any and all info needed to let me know where I stand with the SCH and possible GS issue. And I will have a clear picture of the baby. I feel a bit calmer knowing there's an end to this mess. Do I want bad news? No. I also don't wanna be in the dark.

Ugh, just what you don't need. Maybe your doc can get you in sooner for another scan? Are you seeing your OB this time that you loved previously with your other pregnancies?? I didn't remember his equipment being so bad that you got such fuzzy u/s images.

Oh geez, girl, so sorry you have to go through more shit right now! If they didn’t mention anything about the sack, I’d try to let that go for now, or I’d be harassing the shit out of my OB about it. He may have you go somewhere more specialized in US if he’s concerned, at least that’s what’s been done for me in the past to rule out any issues. Ugh, either way, it sucks with the bleeding and the unknown. Wish I had more words of comfort for you xo keep us posted. Hang in there, girl!

Hopefully just a small sch that will go away without any issues *fingers crossed*

Sorry that hospital is lacking in tech, that can be super frustrating! At least you got to see baby wiggling! =) hopefully your doc will have better answers for you about the sac size vs baby size thing
