I had my first ultrasound yesterday. I had a miscarriage in October so they've been checking my levels and wanted to do an early ultrasound. They did not do a vaginal ultrasound but a regular on the belly one. The sac and baby looked great and the heartbeat was 123. Last night, when I got home from a movie, I found brown blood in my underwear, in the toilet and on the toilet paper. I was also cramping. I freaked out, and all I could say was "not again." I called the doc and his first sentence was "let me think. I'm really confused." He said that the baby and sac looked wonderful, but that he was concerned about a crescent shaped spot outside of the sac that was a bruise. He said 50% of women have them that he sees. He said that maybe it had ruptured and was causing the bleeding. The only other thing that had him concerned was the fact that he couldn't get as good of a look at the baby as he would like because of the sac being so close to the uterine wall. He said I can come in today if I needed it for peace of mind (with the long weekend and all), but that he really won't be able to tell me anything for 5-7 days. He said the best thing to do is wait. There's still blood in the toilet and on the paper, but it's still brown. I'm still nauseous and my breasts are still sore. He said it would be very unusual for me to miscarry 4 hours after seeing the heartbeat.
I'm so scared. Has anyone had anything like this before? I'm trying to decide if I should go in or wait it out. I'm leaning toward waiting it out since there's not anything he could do either way. He's also more of a glass half empty kind of guy, and I don't think I need that right now. On the other hand seeing that little heart beat would be so nice right now. Sigh. . .
