Can I just say that the last few weeks have been a crazy rollercoaster. The wait to see our doctor this morning felt like it would never come. As Chris & I waited for our turn with Dr. T this morning we were trying to prepare ourselves for the worst. I had a lot of bleeding over the last few weeks, so much so that we were having a very hard time holding hope that the baby was okay. Dr. T came in to perform the ultrasound. I’ve heard other women say that they find themselves holding their breath until the doctor finds their baby’s heart beat, I must admit I didn’t feel much hope to hold mine. When he said “Look, there’s the heart beat!” I’m pretty sure Chris jumped out of his chair and planted his face in front of the screen to see with his own eyes. I was stunned. All I could do was stare at our little fighter in the monitor and thank God for yet another miracle! After he let us listen to our little one’s heart beat he turned our attention towards the large dark blob sitting just below the baby, about three times the size. Our doctor called it a large clot in the uterus. This is the cause of all my bleeding. Dr. T told us he wants us to see a specialist since it appears this hasn’t and won’t be a straight forward pregnancy. Chris & I felt relieved to know we were being referred to see someone who could give us more answers. Dr. T sent us right away to have an ultrasound done at the hospital since their machines produce clearer images. The ultrasound tech at the hospital told me the clot in my uterus is more commonly called a subchorionic hematoma. She said she’s seen this before in other pregnancies but that the size of my hematoma was quite large. She showed me the baby’s heart beat, it was amazing to say the least! At this point we’re waiting to hear from Dr. T to let us know when we can see the specialist. As my dad prayed for his grandbaby over the phone earlier today he reminded me of Isaiah 55:8
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord.
