A bit of a scare - but we are okay!

Last night I had a little bit of a scare, I was going to the bathroom and I noticed some blood when I wiped.  I wasn't sure exactly where it was coming from but quickly realized it was coming from my vagina.  I was so scared, but thankfully it was just some pink blood.  I went and laid down and went to check again and it was much less until the millionth time I went to the bathroom and it was finally brown. 

I called the on call doctor which just so happened to be MY doctor and she asked a few questions and said to call back if it continued or got worse.  So I made it through the night and had some more brownish blood this morning and called to make an appointment.  The doctor was pretty sure everything was okay, but you never know so I wanted to go in to calm my nerves.

Everything was okay!!  I may have "strained" a little too much if you know what I mean going to the bathroom and that may have been the reason for the blood, but the heartbeat was in the 140's and I got a short video of the ultrasound!!!

The baby isn't moving much but you can see the heartbeat and a little movement in the babies hands.

Other exciting news I found out yesterday I get to be an OB model for GE on August 14th so they will have some doctors using the 3D/4D equipment and I will get a CD of pictures and video of the ultrasound. 
 
Hopefully no more mid-week updates of this sort!  I don't want to see any more blood!!
