Spotting Again (Updated with u/s pic)

Pretty much the same exact story as when it happened exactly two weeks ago, reddish brown spotting when I wipe. Thankfully, it seems to be winding down a bit...but its still freaking me out.

I've already spoken to the on-call doctor at my OBs office and the doc recommended taking it easy this evening (feet up, drink lots of water, no lifting or exercise) and give their office a call in the morning. Apparently they can see me if there is bleeding as its considered emergency care.

I'd really like to get in and get checked out tomorrow, no matter which hospital I have to go to. Preferably an ultrasound so they can find the source of the bleeding and (please, please, please) maybe see a little heartbeat.

Please keep Baby Cactus Bud in your thoughts tonight.

Update: I spoke with my doctor this morning and she said I needed to be checked to rule out an ectopic. Soooo, I got to spend the WHOLE day today in the ER. Awesome.

Results were mostly good news. Namely that Baby CB is where its supposed to be AND that its measuring correctly. I'm 6 weeks even going by my ovulation date (6w3d by LMP), and the little bugger was measuring 6 weeks.

There wasn't a heartbeat yet, but I'm trying to convince myself that is because its just a smidgen early. I know its roughly 50/50 odds to see it that early. I'm trying to take the measurements as a good sign and hope the future holds a heartbeat.

Here is a blurry first picture of Baby CB. The black blob is the amniotic sac and the white line in the blob is Baby CB.

(Yes, I'm a dork and took a pic of the screen because I knew they wouldn't give me a print out)

I hope everything is okay. FWIW, my cousin spotted throughout both of her pregnancies and had perfectly healthy, full term babies.

Glad to hear the update and the good news! I hope you get another shot soon to see Little CB again and finally hear the HB!

I hope everything is ok! When is your next appointment for a follow-up ultrasound? I'll be thinking of you :)

I don't know when the follow-up will be. Hopefully sometime in the next couple weeks, but could be as late as a month from now (10 weeks). I'm in the midst of switching OB care, so it depends how quickly they can get me in. I do intend to ask for one so we can see the hb before we tell family though.

You and Baby Cactus Bud are in my T&P... I am counting on you to carry on for October 2011 :)
