Update after clinic visit

Everything is OK!!!! Heartbeat is excellent and the placenta looks good. Baby is right on track for size too.

Whew.... that made me feel much better.

There is no good explanation for the bleeding other than the Lovenox. I didn't see my normal Dr. - but that was OK. It turns out that they've added a lot of new Dr's to the staff since I was there with Ellie. Kind of nice to know that they are growing. Dr. C did say that there is some indication that bleeding in early pregnancy is a warning sign of possible preeclampsia, but we were already expecting that anyway. (another "duh" moment for me - since so many women who had preeclampsia are on Lovenox and Lovenox tends to cause bleeding... but that's just me)

So everything is good. I just need to take it as easy as possible. There's still a little bit of bleeding but unless it gets worse or there is heavy cramping I'm just going to have to live with it for now.

I will say I'm getting a little spoiled with all of the ultrasounds this pregnancy. (my insurance company might not be to happy with it soon - but I'll take the little joys as they come...)

so glad things went well!

the only upside of high risk, i've found, is the increase in u/s. it is so reassuring when you are scared and still reeling from a loss.

the cure sounds stressful, glad everything looks ok and that you are getting lots of sneak peaks! That baby has no privacy!

So glad that things look good! The bleeding is sooooo stressful, even if you're expecting it.
