Well, today is officially my first day of my 13th week, and I started it off with spotting this morning. It has been a very long and awful day. I have probably the worst cold of my life (lost my voice over night, sore throat, exhausted, congested, etc.), my husband was away over night until this afternoon, and then the spotting. The dreaded spotting. I hadn't had any since 6 weeks and had thoroughly adjusted this week to the idea that I was pretty much in the clear.
My awesome friend who is a family doctor whipped me up to her practice an hour ago and got out the doppler. She instantly found the heartbeat (160) and lots of movement, and is scheduling me for an ultrasound on Monday. I'm O neg so she's also suggesting that I get WinRho (not sure what this is called in the U.S., but it's the protein blood product that negative blood type women with positive partners have to get during pregnancy, especially if they have any bleeding, so they don't become sensitized and reject the baby if it is positive). It really does pay to have good friends... especially ones who are doctors!
Relief. I know now that we are not in the clear, and that truly does suck, but I feel hugely relieved to know that today, we are still in the game. Today. I'm going to try and focus on today, each and every day. That's all I can do, right?
Hugs to any of you who are also having hard days, for whatever reason.
