7 Weeks Pregnant! Happy Birthday to me!

I have good news and bad news… This week has been very difficult.

Last week I was at work, going about my business, doing what I do (read obsessively google for anything pregnancy related), when i suddenly noticed some spotting. For what I learnt in my research its totally normal to spot in early pregnancy, but this is the moment that my brain hits the panic button and it overrides my good senses. I obviously freaked out and called the doctor who told me to come in for an ultrasound immediately.

The doctor saw the sac an yolk which was a relief and she explained that even tough spotting is normal at this stage, it’s a concern because in my case it comes with non stop crams…. so I was put on bedrest for a whole week. Here is a video I recorded at my 6th week pregnancy vlog.

Anyways, so I did sen all week in bed and it was sooo hard! I used to dream of the day I could just lay around all day but holy fuck that’s so hard and boring. I’ve watched everything on Netflix and I’ve pinned like 1000 new pins on Pinterest… I’ve also got old habits back and started playing candy crush again… I’m not proud of that.. But at least I finally beat level 425 (only to get stuck again on 437).

I had an appointment on Tuesday with an OBGYN and even though I was on bed rest I decided to keep the appointment… for anxious mamas like myself, every u/s is a great chance t calm down. Andy and I went together. I was 6 weeks and 2 days by then so we didn’t expect to see much, I knew the baby was too small. The doctor surprised us by playing the heart beat of the baby…. we were totally caught off-guard and it was beautiful.

On Wednesday, something wasn’t feeling right. I was still having cramps but they felt different from the initial cramps. At first it was more like localized cramps, in my uterus area. Then it became more like abdominal pain where my whole stomach hurts, from top to bottom.  I went to the bathroom and there was blood, a lot more than Friday… red blood. It was scary. I thought for sure this was all over.

The doctor’s office was already closed so i called them on Thursday and they told me to come in the following morning… 9/26/14, the day of my birthday. Knowing how I’m usually not very lucky and bad shit just happens to me, I thought for sue we were coming in and not having anything in there. Like I said, the week was a hard one…

Friday finally rolls around and we go to the doctor’s office. I kept my eyes closed as the she started analyzing the image on the ultrasound but since I didnt hear any bad sounds, I figured it was safe to look. My baby was still there and the heart was beating. It was such a relief and the best birthday gift I could ask for at this point. I immediately melted.

I was so glad that Andy was there with me.

I’m going to be on bed rest for another week and provided that I don’t bleed again, I can go back to work after the next weekend. The rule is, when I don’t bleed for a week straight I can go back. I need to go back to work soon because we just opened escrow on a house a couple weeks ago so we need to prove we have jobs by the time of closing! It’s been nerve wrecking… Im just trying to stay calm and distracted.

Hope you’re week was good!!

LOVE,

Dani

  4. So happy everyone is looking good. I hope everything continues to be go well!!

  5. You must have been so worried/scared. Aww but glad everything is ok. Enjoy your bed rest. You wont have a minute to yourself in 9 months! x

  6. What a rubbish week!! Sending positive vibes your way! Enjoy the rest while you can! Xx

  7. I’m so glad everything is okay! Happy birthday to you! :):)

  8. I bet you have been really scared! I am glad that you and baby are doing well and I hope the bleeding stops

  9. How scary! So glad everything is okay though! Made me laugh about your boredom though 😉

  10. Aw, hun. So sorry to hear you’ve had a rough time! If it’s any reassurance, I bled on and off with cramping until I was 15 weeks and my babies are doing great now at 26 weeks. I think it’s very common. I took it easy too and boy was bed rest dull!! I watched all of Glee, Vampire Diaries and more!! Take care and good luck!

  11. So glad you got to see your little peanut’s heart beating!!!! It is the most beautiful sound ever!!! I am sorry you’re going through the bleeding and bed rest. That sucks. I hope it’s all tapered off and you are up and about! xoxo

    • It has gotten better for sure… now I only have a little bit of spotting when I wipe, but no heavy flow in the last few days. Bed rest is terrible but I think Im getting used to it! LOL

  12. OMG that was so scary to read! I’m glad everything is okay. Bedrest is when a Kindle comes in amazingly. Book after book at the touch of a button!

  13. Wow. That is a lot to go through. Buying a house in itself is a ton of stress! Try not to stress too much as the baby is greatly affected by the stress. Keep calm. Everything will workout. ❤️❤️❤️
