First Pictures... A Sonogram

Friday, we had some minor spotting. Saturday it seemed to have cleared up. Sunday, it was back. Today, it seemed better but we still visited the doctor. We had a sonogram and were able to see the little baby's heart beating. Everything looks good. The doctor said that the spotting was coming from a blood clot "behind the placenta". I'm not exactly sure what is meant by "behind". But the doc said it was fairly common and that BJ might experience spotting for up to a week until her body absorbed it. We're a bit worried that there is any issue with clotting especially since she is on blood thinners. But for now, the baby appears to be doing well. It is due April 18.
