8 week check and Sub-chorionic bleed

Well, nothing can be normal with me, can it?

I have had a tad of brownish spotting the last two nights (once each night and nothing all day or night after that). I was scheduled today for my 8 week exam, PAP, and u/s anyway.

Here is the outcome of my appointment:
1. both babies on track as far as growth, size, shape, etc
2. heartbeats 164,172 (right in range for the date)
3. uterus looks good except for subchorionic hemotoma near baby A on the cervical end

U/S tech and doctor said the size did not concern them and that most of these resolve on their own. They said unless I have moderate,heavy red bleebing that they don't need to see me back for a month. They did put me on "pelvic rest"-so no BD, excercise, lifting, etc until I am 12 weeks-this is actually standard for all IVF and twin patients.

I feel better, since i have not spotted all day and since they seem not to be that concerned about it at this point. I am still having off/on nausea, pulling/cramps, indigestion/reflux, and my pants already don't fit.

All in all everything looks great according to them, so I guess we must have faith and patience!

Please say a prayer for all of us!

Ick. I hope it goes away on its own and you don't have to worry about it anymore. As if there isn't enough to worry about! I had spotting right around the same time, but they didn't find anything and it went away pretty quickly.

I was shocked at how quickly none of my clothes fit!

Wishing for the bleeding to disappear asap! And I had a day of brown spotting and then it was gone around 7 1/2 weeks, so I understand the absolute freak out!

Many hugs and well wishes!
