After having a rough start to our second pregnancy with some spotting and light bleeding, I spent the week going backwards and forwards to the doctors and having blood tests.

This week I had three blood tests done, two days apart to check that my hcg levels were rising like they should be (and they were).

I also had to have an ultrasound to check for an ectopic pregnancy (very, very scary and nerve racking week!!). Thankfully the results of that showed that there was no bleeding or fluid anywhere that it shouldn’t be. It was too early however to see the pregnancy on an ultrasound but still a very positive result as there would have been many repercussions of an ectopic pregnancy. This basically means that the spotting and light bleeding was probably just implantation bleeding or some breakthrough bleeding as it occured around the same time I would have normally got my cycle.

After a very rough week it was time to now relax and go away on our holiday to Cairns. When we get back we will have an appointment with our OB Dr Bopp at Pindara Place and get to see how the pregnancy is progressing. Our EDD at this point is somewhere between 9th and 11th of November. Just one and a bit weeks after Addi’s birthday!! Hopefully squiggle doesn’t decide to come early.
