13 weeks 6 days/ultrasound

We had a doctor's appointment today to check on the hematoma. I sure don't like this hematoma but it has given me more chances to see our miracle;) We had our ultrasound first. The baby has changed so much in 2 weeks. He looks so "real" now;) Looking at the ultrasound you would never think that this baby is only 3 1/2 inches long!! The baby was showing off for us by moving all around and waving his arms and legs. Everything looked great with the baby. Unfortunately the hematoma is still there but very small. The said hopefully it will be gone by 20 weeks. I then had to do blood work and talked to the doctor. I asked him if it was crazy to be scared of an incompetent cervix. He said no it wasn't but I don't have an increased risk for it so I should try not to worry. My cervix was closed and long today!! I had been getting mixed reviews about eating blue cheese and cold ham so I asked him about that. He told me NOT TO EAT IT!! So sad because that's 2 of he only things I have been craving and ham is one of the only meats I can tolerate at this point! I will do anything for my baby though...SMALL sacrifice. He told me that I would have another ultrasound in 4 weeks to look at the hematoma and hopefully find out the gender!! I am so thankful that we had a good appointment and the baby looks good!! THANK YOU GOD!!! I hope everyone had a wonderful day;)

Isn't it just the most amazing thing to see your baby moving all around in there? About the meat, if you cook it it's safe to eat. But I didn't really eat any this whole time I've been pregnant either. I'm glad the ultrasound went well and I'm so excited to see if it's a boy or a girl!

Cute pictures! I always love the alien pics. When one of my friends saw her's she got scared and asked, "Where's the brain?" :)

Food restrictions are tough. I'm not allergic to anything and I am not used to checking ingredients on everything and having to be so careful of what I put in my mouth. It's not worth the stress of eating the "wrong thing" and you're right it is a small sacrifice.

I hope your next u/s shows that pesky hematoma is gone. I can't wait to see what the gender is!

My sister had a hematoma with her second pregnancy which resolved on its own and everything turned out fine. Hopefully, that will be the case with you too. Your baby is beautiful!

Oh, and I seriously miss cold deli meat. You can still eat ham- just heat it to steaming! Not as good if you're craving the cold stuff, but better than nothing.
