Good News Everyone!
Our ultrasound today at the Maternal-Fetal Medicine department could not have gone any better. We have a perfectly healthy baby gummy hopping around in my belly... and NO placenta problems what.so.ever.
The high risk doctor explained to us that sometimes ultrasounds, especially early ultrasounds, are sometimes misread by radiologists. He said that Radiologists can read all sorts of pictures that he wouldn't be able to like hearts and lungs. But he knows ultrasounds and what they should look like in the different stages of pregnancy. It turns out that what was being misinterpreted as swelling was actually a yolk sac and something else (I was too excited to actually pay attention) that simply has not fused together yet, which is perfectly healthy. They generally do not fuse together until between 13-16 weeks anyway.
As for the bleeding, it is left unexplained. But it is certainly not effecting the baby or the health of the pregnancy at this point. He says that it is most likely only cervical bleeding which does not effect the baby/pregnancy.
In light of such good news, I have decided to do a new "Thirty Days" post. Each day will have a different theme. It's actually something I picked up from a very cool facebook friend of mine and I thought it would be fun to do on my blog. It will help you all to learn a little more about me, and it will be a fun thing for me to do.
