Ive spent this afternoon in the early pregnancy unit, again.
After never going, i’ve now been twice in just over 2 weeks. I feel like i may be there often.
I went to the loo at work and there i was just bleeding profusely. No cramps but lots of blood.
Dashed out the office without really letting people know why, they thought i had an early finish! Sorry everyone!!
Got to EPU and they told me it could be a 4hr wait so i settled in. I was assessed within 30 minutes and instantly put on the list for a scan.
Within 50 minutes i had an internal scan and told the sonographer (who diagnosed Milo) i was prepared for bad news.
She had a look and turned the screen to show me a baby with a heartbeat, my response? ‘fuck off’. I seriously thought i had miscarried. Had told Mr Me to prepare himself and then theres a blob with a heartbeat…
Shocked isnt the word. Im flabbergasted. There was SO MUCH blood. Wherever its coming from isnt affecting baby though, its nice and high in my uterus, measuring a day ahead and has a Crown to Rump length of 22mm.
They advised me to rest, i.e. bed rest. Even said i should get a bell to save my voice 😂😂
Clinic (Team Miracle) have told me to come off aspirin, increase the progesterone pessaries to 4 times a day, and keep my legs up.
They also told me to use a proluton (ass jab) if i had one, which i do. They really bloody hurt. But, if it keeps baby in place and stops the bleeding, itll be worth it.
I notice a pattern here….Milo, all good until 20 weeks, Millie ok until 12 weeks, Storm Trooper, naughty from 6 weeks on.
Its going to be a LONG 31 weeks if this continues.
Love, Little Miss PMA xxx
