Surprise Ultrasound

I had some scary moments yesterday when I realized that I was spotting some brown "stuff." Scary doesn't even describe how I felt at that moment. My heart sank and all these thoughts started running through my head. I called the doctor's office and talked to the emergency hotline receptionist. She took my name and number and had the doctor on call return my call. He wasn't too concerned about my situation, since I didn't have any cramps. He had recommended that I just take it easy and for my own peace of mind, get in to see the doctor today. So I did!

I called their office this morning and got in to see Dr. Z. This was my first time meeting Dr. Z. He said everything looked fine with my cervix, no tears, bumps, or anything like that. I have a small yeast infection, though. So he said between than and the placenta taking over, brown spotting is quite normal. Whew, good news!

So I had an ultrasound done to check on Little Bean (LB). It was an abdominal one, since I'm far enough along to not need the wand. Yay! So Little Bean is great. She/He is very active. LB waved at me with a perfect hand with five perfect fingers on it. Dr. Z really explained everything that I could see. He knew I just wanted to know that everything was okay. So we looked at the spine, at the head, you could see the stomach. It was really a relief to know that everything was good. 

Just pray, though, that this pregnancy continues with good health and no more scary moments. 


  1. I'm sure you were so scared! I am soo glad that your baby is okay! I can't believe you are already 12 weeks! Time sure flies :)

  2. So glad to hear that all is well. I had a similar situation last week and it is very scary! Praying that the rest of your pregnancy is uneventful.

  3. I saw your post on SC and was relieved to find out everything was fine with Little Bean. :) Praying for no more scares.
    (on the plus side, you did get an extra ultrasound out of the deal :) )

  4. Glad to hear that everything is okay. Enjoy the flutters- it only gets better.

    Wishing you a smooth rest of your pregnancy! And thanks for visiting my blog.


  5. I am glad that everything went well with the ultrasound and that there was nothing to be worried about! That is always such a relief... And the fact that LB waved at you is sweet!

    Happy ICLW!
