What a day of dramas.
So. Last night had spotting and cramping. Texted my Obe this morning. She asked me to go to have U/s.
U/S showed a single fetus 5 weeks, 6 days (so I've changed my due date now to 7th Oct) with a hb of 115.
It also showed a subchorionic haemorage. Told my Obe. She ordered injection of progesterone every 3 days, and crinone vaginal supositories for two weeks. Supposed to be bed rest. Can't!! Work is really really busy and I can't tell people I'm pregnant yet.
But will take things easier and minimal walking, no gym, etc.
Having quite a bit of abdominal pain this evening, on the left side. But not really much 'cramping'. I see from reading online that this is not necessarily fatal for the baby and it can resolve. Hope I am one of those.
Repeat ultrasound in 2 weeks when on last day of crinone and will get further instructions from Obe at that stage, depending on status of the fetus. Hope by then I can be back to normal activity and lifestyle. So 2 weeks on tenterhooks.
At the same time, MG has been sick and coughing so badly at night. Last night was one of the worst, considering she's on 6 hourly nebuliser, plus antihistamine, plus just started a short dose of steroid. She was waking up coughing uncontrollably every hour (and me with her)..... then she had a fever this morning. I had to get her to the doctor again for her first ever course of antibiotics! Can't risk pneumonia, considering she is also now taking steroid.
Interestingly this baby has come from the left ovary (that's where the corpus luteum was)! The tube on the left was supposed to be blocked! Obviously it's not really!
