I am a terrible person

So my bleeding got heavier, and I went back to the clinic. Let's start with the good news: the baby still has a heartbeat, and the clot that they found behind the placenta is small.

The bad news: if the clot expands, it could cause a miscarriage. This was definitely caused by the CVS.

I hadn't wanted to wait for an amnio (or -- god forbid -- skip such tests altogether) to see if we had any chromosomal issues, so this is 100% my fault. I don't usually pray, but I am praying a LOT right now in the hopes that this clot resolves on its own in the next couple of days.

I go back on Thursday for another scan.

I will be praying with you. Hope you're doing OK. It's too soon to hear the HB on the home doppler, so I wouldn't go by that.

We may be far away, but if there's anything we can do, let me know.

You're not a terrible person and it's not your fault. You know since we like to toss the "Don't beat yourselfs up" back and forth.

I'm thinking good thoughts for you.

You are not a terrible person.

I will hope that the bleeding stops, the clot goes away and things continue on smoothly.
