I had my first appointment with the midwife today. It couldn't have come sooner for me. Sunday morning I had some light pink and brown spotting and it continued to this morning. It seems to have subsided now. The midwife says that it is fairly normal especially if it is only when wiping as well as after being intimate with your partner. She did the usual intake things and used the Doppler to try to find the heart beat. She couldn't find it. She asked the adminitrator to see if we could bump up my ultrasound to help put my mind at ease. Oh, they bumped it up alright and sent me over right away. How awesome is that? So I went to the ultrasound lab and they took me right in. The first thing the sonographer said was " baby's moving around" I had to clarify. I was so relieved. It's got a good heart beat and was really wiggling around in there. Later the midwives called to say that baby is developing normally.
