Warning: TMI coming up.
I’ve had a couple of stressful days, but am feeling a little calmer now. Since the little scare the other day, I have had constant aching in my pelvis, which was worried me. Then yet more blood last night. I was very upset last night, as I had convinced myself that the pregnancy was ectopic. I decided to go to the doctors today, to get check out. If it is ectopic then leaving it may cause damage to the fallopian tubes as the foetus grows.
The doctor, who I hadn’t seen before (I could get into my usual) was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable and understanding. Paul came along with me. The doctor explained the some bleeding is not uncommon. He checked my cervix, which was closed (a good thing), and felt my uterus, which as a 7 week old foetus feel to it, apparently. I had no sharp pain when he pressed around my abdomen, which is also good. I am booked in for a scan next Tuesday, to see that the foetus is growing where it supposed to be, and that it has a heartbeat. Scary, and exciting too.
I feel like a HMDQ – High Maintenance Drama Queen – but I think it’s worth it to know that everything is going ok. Also worth it to press the issue, in favour of damage occurring to my insides should the worst eventuate.
