Still resting in bed....

Ok so I went on total pelvic rest on November 24th...and now I've been on complete bedrest for almost 2 weeks. The subchorionic tear is not better but not worse, however, blood has pooled around the other side of the baby and the amniotic sack has detached from the uterine wall. Sounds scary, but my OB didn't seem very stressed about it. She said it either must drain or reabsorb so the baby can reattach. I'll have a picture to post once I can sit up long enough to not be posting from the iPad. We are seeing a specialist on the 21st for our anatomy scan and to see if we have any improvement. I've just had random spotting all this week. Baby was measuring 17 weeks 3 days (over a week ahead! Keep on growing baby!) and seems unaffected for now. Just praying like crazy from my new bedroom in the family room. At least our pug seems to enjoy bedrest!

P.S. I believe I started feeling the baby move this week! Actually pretty positive! The best thing ever!

I felt movement at 16 weeks, so I'm sure it is the baby! Yay! The movement is awesome. Wait till you can start feeling feet and elbows through your belly! Amazing!
