Well, on St.Paddy's day I got a positive pregnancy test. Woohoo!

Well, at 6weeks6days I had my first u/s and everything looked amazing.. Even the babys heartbeat!

At 8weeks 3-4days, I had some bleeding and started freaking! We went to the ER and everthing looked great on the u/s, baby was measuring right and the heart was just a beating. What a relief!

At 9weeks 4days, I had my 1st actual appt and my dr did another u/s (the first one "didn't count", because they were making sure baby was where it needed to be). Baby was moving and heart was beating. He (the dr) was happy to be able to give me good news based on my history. :)

At 10weeks even, I had another bleeding incident and back to the ER I went (because of course it happens at 1030 of a night).They drew 6 vials of blood, put the iv in and a few min later, off to u/s. Yet again, baby was looking great with its beating heart and doing flips (must have been the Pepsi I drank before the bleeding started! lol). The dr came in and did a pelvic (oh yay :/ ). Blood tests looked good, but the u/s did show something, a blood clot. Apparently the placenta isn't fully attached to the uterine wall, and a blood clot it behind it. So was diagnosed with a Subchronic bleed (also known as a subchronic hematoma), and thats what has caused the bleeding.

So here I am, almost 11weeks pregnant. The morning sickness kills me when it hits, because its not always from a smell, sometimes ifs a scene of one of my favorite shows (all CSI, Criminal Minds, Supernatural) and the blood makes me just about hurl. So its def worse than with my son, but I will take it. lol

Congratulations! I'm glad that things are turning out well, and hope that you don't have any more problems from your subchronic bleed. Morning sickness is no fun at all :(
