Yesterdays appointment had good news and not so good news. Good news is, the babies were doing fine. They were moving all around. We didn't get measurements or heartbeats, but you could see their little hearts pounding away. She did an exam and found some old blood in my cervix, but nothing new. On the u/s she found cysts on my ovaries that she seems to think is the cause of bleeding. I am inclined to disagree, but I am not a doctor. I've had no pain like in previous times when I had a cyst that ruptured. The places where you could see a liquid collection was not in my uterus and the placentas were nice and high.
I failed my one hour glucose test. The cut off is a level of 140 and mine was 183. I have to go in for the three hour next week. My iron has also dropped more. I think she said it is at 9.5 which according to her is way to low and they don't expect to see this in a woman who is in her first trimester. I am starting rx iron supplements twice a day. I am sure this will be great including I can go to the bathroom as is. Oh well it is what it is.
Cherry on Top:
I went a wonderful 21 days with no bleeding. That all ended last Saturday night when I had another gusher. Well last night I had four gushers. It lasted all night long and I am still bleeding today. It wasn't just a little of blood either. I went through three heavy pads throughout the night. I think it would be a understatement to say at this point I don't feel completely defeated. Guess I thought will everything we went through to get pregnant that the pregnancy would go a little easier for me. Again, there is nothing I can do to change it. Just have to roll with the punches. Have another call into the doctor about the bleeding.
Just heard back from OB and they want me back today for another u/s. My appointment is at 2:45.
