I want to remember this so that I don't get hung up on the presence or absence of pregnancy symptoms.
To my relief, the doctor found a sac, and even a tiny flicker of a heart beat: 100bpm. She saw where I was bleeding from. Below the sac, close to the cervix the sac had detached from the wall and was pooling blood. It's called a subchorionic bleed or hemorrhage. She measured it and said that they would check next week to see if it got smaller. In the mean time there was no way to know if everything was going to be ok. We'd just have to wait. She said it was better to have the bleed at the bottom, where it couldn't spread so much and rip more of the sac off the uterine wall. At least that was in my favor. She suggested that SCHs were common in IVF pregnancies because of the high levels of hormones we have floating around. I told her I was also worried because my one and only pregnancy symptom had gone away. She was pregnant herself and laughed- she said that's just how the entire pregnancy will be. You feel something one minute, and it could be gone the next. I want to remember that so I don't get hung up on the presence or absence of pregnancy symptoms.
The nurse advised to take it easy and drink lots of water. Apparently that's the cure for SCH.
We went back the next week and the bleed had gotten smaller but was still there. Baby L's heartbeat was 137 bpm and he was measuring 7w3d.
