Hey girls, so doctor send me to the hospital yesterday for an ultrasound and baby is fine. His hb is strong and all good but they found out that I have a bicornuate uterus. Which means my uterus split in two and there two places the baby can settle in. So doc told me that with cases like these the risk of a miscarriage is higher and also delivering pre-term. So now they are going to monitor me carefully.
Also spotting came from the other horn where there is no baby. They were surprised that no one realized this with my son. I was kind of annoyed that Noone did either. .. could've made ttc easier because apparently it makes it harder to ttc.
Awww congrats Vela! My appointment went well. They said it was too early to listen for the heartbeat with a Doppler. My uterus seems to be the right size. The hospital will call me for my dating ultrasound in the next few weeks! They didn't use to do that, it's a new thing. Usually we would only get an ultrasound at 16-20 weeks.
Wow Velathria the bicornuate uterus is no joke!! I'm so glad they got that figured out early this time. At least you know your previous son arrived healthy as you say. And congrats on your first photo!!! Yay for heartbeat!!!
I had my first doctor appointment yesterday but as I'm only 5 weeks it was anticlimactic! They just said to take prenatals and come back for an 8-week dating scan. I am going to get 2 more betas this week just to ensure everything is progressing okay. So far so good except I don't have any symptoms other than cramps and the spotting scared me, but it stopped (knock on wood). In Canada we can pick between a doctor or a midwife and on Tuesday I have an appointment with a midwife. Hopefully that goes well and if so I will meet with them moving forward.
Lubru that's great. ^^ the three weeks hopefully go by well for you. ^^ don't worry about symptoms. those were pretty much my symptoms at the beginning...
The nausea started i think halfway through the 6th week and now in the 7th week they really hit me. Still have a lot of cramps and spotting but they said that can happen especially with my second uterus...
So hoping that everything stays well and that we get to see our little bean next tuesday moving away and growing.
Still a bit nervous with the spotting but i am holding on to hope as long as bbs still hurt and grow and i still feel nauseous.. ^^
