The baby is fine today. S/he has a heart rate of 151 and is measuring 7w4d, a little ahead of where we actually are by a few days.
What can I say? I am overcome with relief and gratitude. It is difficult for me to put into words just yet, so I need to let it brew. See what comes out of it all. Brutally heavy experience. I was curled up on the couch 2 days ago, certain it was the end, and now it appears to be on the path to all okay? I don't even understand my own thoughts yet.
In the mean time, I am your new resident expert-in-training on subchorionic hematomas. I don't want to be one, but at least I have a name for this bleeding now. It is smaller than when it started on Wednesday by 25%, down to 3cm today. I am told it is average in size and appears to be resolving itself. More bed rest this weekend.
What is next. Funny thing is that I made myself a promise before this all started. Once we cleared the heartbeat, I wasn't going to allow myself to worryworryworry about what could go wrong. I went through Toddlerina's pregnancy in constant fear. Now that I had this fine young egg, I was going to celebrate the benefits of DE by releasing worry.
Hm. Maybe I will start next week.
