Apparently I’ve developed a Subchorionic Hemorrhage. In lay men’s terms a blood filled cyst in between my uterin lining and the babies’ placentae. As long as it stays small or resolves on its own (which it most likely did bursting) there isn’t much to worry about. It’s just one of those things that happens some times during early pregnancy. Of course having this automatically bumps my already high risk of late miscarriage or preterm labor up an additional 1-3%.
Yes, I don’t even get the relief that comes with the second trimester this go around. Thank you, Universe. I get it. I was complaining this pregnancy was going too well and now I have this stacked on the already high risk twin pregnancy. All in all it could be much worse. My doctor doesn’t seem at all concerned with it right now which is encouraging. I still don’t need to change my routine just keep an eye out for any additional bleeding, and cramps which is generally a sign of something more serious.
Sooooooooo…. Crisis number three narrowly averted once again. With each passing day I am ever more thankful that this pregnancy will be my last regardless of outcome. I mean obviously I want happy healthy babies, but even if something goes wrong this is the end of the pregnancy line for the House of Hale. It’s nothing short of a miracle I’ve been able to mentally keep it together right now, let alone barely hanging on physically.
