Yes one of the most pleasent gifts from pregnancy ;) Nausea.
I´m feeling really dizzy all day long, smells just make me want to through up... How is it be possible to be hungry and sick all the time!

I´ve been looking all over for good advice about the subject and here´s what I´ve got. Check http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/health_advice/facts/pregnantnausea.htm for full article.

How can I avoid nausea?

In the morning

Take your time getting out of bed.
If you tend to feel really sick in the morning, eat a little as soon as you wake up and before getting out of bed.
Ask your partner to bring the food to you, or prepare a snack the night before and leave it beside your bed.

Throughout the day

Eat little and often, every two or three hours - even if you're not hungry.
Drink a lot of liquid, preferably 10 to 12 glasses of water, fruit juice or herbal tea each day.
Avoid food containing a lot of fat or spices.
Avoid alcohol and caffeine.
Eat dry crackers, toasted bread or rusks.
Rest several times a day. Lie down with a pillow under your head and legs.
Move slowly and avoid sudden movements.
After eating, sit down so that gravity helps to keep the food in your stomach.
Avoid smells that make you feel sick or throw up.
Don't brush your teeth immediately after eating because this can cause vomiting. 
No smoking
At night

Before going to bed, it may help to eat a snack such as a yoghurt, bread, milk, cereal or a sandwich.
If you wake up during the night, eating a small snack may stop you feeling sick in the morning.
Sleep with the windows open to get some fresh air, if possible.

WEEK 9_Good news & bad news

Went to the doctor´s yesterday and received some good news and some bad....

Bad news first the hematoma is still there and is slighlty bigger. Besides the origin of it had a technical explanation ( I will get to that later) Long story short I will probably have to be in bed rest for the duration of all the pregnancy, if I´m lucky. It is a high risk pregnancy and that means first and third trimester will be very risky.

Good news is that the baby is growing just fine his heart beat was perfect and we even saw him move. He already has his little legs and arms and tiny little face...He or she is beautiful, and luckily doesn´t even know how worried we are for him. The bonus we had during this US was we were able to see our baby in 3d cause the doctors were looking at the hematoma to see its evolution and gave us a picture of our baby in 3d, we were able to see his face and tiny little eyes. I will add the pictures later.

Even after what doctors said I´m very optimistic and have a feeling we will be able to raise this baby just fine, of course with a very intriging pregnancy but I´m sure we will bring Nacho´s brother or sister to this family.

I will do everything I can to protect our baby and with God´s help he will join our family in some months!

Bed Rest Sucks!!

It makes my mind go wild, I honestly can stop thinking at all. Thanks to you mommy blogger I can distract myself a bit.

Really if I have to be in bed for the rest of my pregnancy I don´t know what I´m going to do...

My back and neck is killing me for being in bed all day with my laptop...Thank god for WI-FI internet!!!

Besides I´m putting so much weight that whenever I get a green light to start having "some" activity I´ll have to go with a greek style (just wraping some sheets around me, cause that´s the only thing that will fit) :)

Truly the only thing I care is for my baby to be ok and growing, however I cannot stop my crazy head... My concerns arn´t really what I mentioned it´s just being able to have this baby_ THAT´S ALL.

Back pain_NO PAIN NO GAIN right?

Weight_Well I will fight that battle when the time comes.

1-Watching the TV has really changed it´s concept, I find myself (and my husband) watching my 18 months baby´s reactions watching his face makes is way more entretaining that the actual TV program.
2-Your baby´s gases make you smile!
3-The smell of sweat, yeap I love to smell his hair after a long round playing. Smells... well I love his smelly feet after a long day, I just want to eat them
4-Watching him play and talk with his teddy bear melts my heart.
5-I never thought that someone´s poop would make sooo happy but it does.
6-My baby is quite a singer that really makes my day.
7-Watching him grow every inch and every pound.
8-His kisses and hugs fills my heart with love and joy, the best gift anyone can get.
9- Deep conversations only he understands!!
10- Last but not least watching and feeling him breath deeply when he falls asleep after a long day!!!!


Thinking through everything I decided to have a more positive aproach... after all being positive will only help and apart from that I have to be greatfull for the family I have my wondefull baby and husband that are bieng so very comprehensive.
Yes my little one too has being extremely patient with mom!!

WEEK 8_ back to the beggining

Back to light spotting, I was silly enough to think that maby this was over. Lets see what the doctor say on monday.

Wednesday, November 3, 2010


I should have waited another week for my new visit but since I was still bleeding asked for a new visit. Luckily I got to see my new baby´s heart beating strongly and he is growing just fine but the hematoma is still there and there were no changes in size...
Now I was told to wait another two weeks and come in again...If I´m not heavily bleeding I shouldn´t worry (I bet no mommy can do that)
Fingers crossed ...


I well we (my husband and also my 1 year old came along) finally met our beautiful new baby....and  unfortunately our new SCH_Subchorionic Hematoma. That´s why I experienced some light bleeding...I was recomended by my doctor to rest at home, forget about cleaning, about work and avoid any source of stress. Basically my life from now on will be from the sofaa to the bed to the bathroom.:( Appart from this I cannot lift my baby, 0 efforts...It´s going to be hard on my little one and my husband!!
Next US will be in two weeks.


I´m biting my lips to avoid telling everyone!! Two more weeks to go for the first ultra sound. Anyway I will ask to make an early visit next week because I had some very light spotting, last time I had some implantation spotting and was nothing. Lets hope it´s the same thing.


:) FINALLY!!!!! The two lines, pregnant message appeared, I have triple confirmation!!!!!!
I already have a doctor appointment for week 7, It will be eternal until we see our new baby.


I quote this article from http://www.justmommies.com/articles/subchorionic-hematoma.shtml

Take a look at the web for the complete article:

Decades ago, when a woman presented with early trimester bleeding, doctors assumed it was an impending miscarriage. They had no other information to go on. Now with the help of ultrasound technology, doctors are able to make a more definitive diagnosis.

SCH or Subchorionic Hematoma is a gathering of blood between the membranes of the placenta and the uterus. A more technical name is the chorion. Some doctors will also just refer to it as a blood clot.

Diagnosing Subchorionic Hematoma

Diagnosing a SCH is based on its symptoms and visualization via ultrasound scan. Many women visit the doctor or emergency department with the chief complaint of vaginal bleeding during early pregnancy. An ultrasound, either transvaginal or abdominal, would more than likely be carried out. During the ultrasound scan, the doctor or radiologist will locate the fetus and assess it’s current condition. Identifying a SCH by an untrained eye is difficult. The clot appears as a black mass within the uterus. It almost appears as if another placenta is present. Ordinary ultrasound images appear blackish with visuals of bone. After a visual of the blood clot is made, and it appears a woman is not having a miscarriage, the diagnosis of SCH is made.

Having a diagnosis of SCH instead of a miscarriage is probably a relief but having SCH comes with it’s own concerns.

Treatment of Subchorionic Hematoma

There is no formal treatment for this blood clot but each doctor is different. Some suggest that you can continue with your everyday activities while others may suggest taking it easy. Some physicians even suggest refraining from sexual intercourse throughout pregnancy and bed rest. Surgery is not an option. Straining and heavy lifting should be avoided- as such for a normal pregnancy.

Some doctors prefer a ‘wait and see’ approach while others choose to use medications. Blood thinners such as: aspirin, Lovenox (inj), Coumadin and Heparin (inj) are used in attempts to ‘bleed’ the clot out. Estrogen and Progesterone therapy is also sometimes used to aid in the development of the pregnancy.

The current statistics for pregnancy loss with a SCH is 1-3%. This low percentage is related to large clots. Most pregnancies progress with no further complications. Most clots resolve on their own by 20 weeks of pregnancy. The clot either bleeds itself out or the body absorbs it.

Women with SCH are at greater risk for placental abruption or abruptio placenta. Placental abruption is when the placenta tears away from the uterus. This is an extreme pregnancy complication that requires immediate medical attention. If the placenta separates from the uterine wall, the health of the fetus is in danger.

SCH is a risk early in pregnancy because the clot itself can cause a miscarriage. The clot can release completely from the uterus and cause the fetus and placenta to miscarry.

Women with SCH may experience intermittent periods of vaginal bleeding throughout their pregnancy. This experience would more than likely be a result of the clot ‘bleeding out.’ Blood is an irritant to the uterus and cramping may be accompanied with the bleeding. While seeing blood while pregnant can be very scary-it is very common with SCH. Tampons and sexual intercourse is not generally recommended during bleeding/spotting periods.

Allow yourself adequate rest and plenty of fluids. Dehydration can also cause the uterus to contract-irritating your baby and the clot.

If you’ve been diagnosed with SCH, you’re not alone. Support groups have been popping up all over the internet in recent years. Women from all across the globe have been gathering through the World Wide Web to share their experiences and offer hope to others going through the exact same thing.

If you’re ever in doubt about your condition, you should never hesitate to contact your doctor. Information gathered here should only be used as a reference and not a substitute for actual medical care.


Still don´t know if I pregnant or not but I "feel" pregnant. I even bought some pregnancy tests!!

WEEK 8_When things don´t start as expected

Well I´ve been thinking for a while now if I should write or not. To be honest I find it really hard to do so because things didn´t started as hoped.

Well I must say I´m 8 weeks pregnant now :) ...the thing is durins my first US the doctor told me I had SCH I´ll write about that afterwards. I had light bleeding ever since and was told to rest at home and have 0 stress. It is very difficult to go through this and the more you read the less you want to know. I have faith and prayed every day to be of the lucky ones that can tell about this experience afterwards with a healthy and lovely baby in their arms.

Many things go through your mind because you the only thing you can do is wait and hope for the best.

Its been 2 days now with no bleeding at all and perhaps that is what gave me the strengh to start sharing this with you.

I start to see some light at the end of the tunnel but still will no nothing until my next US on monday.

Will keep you posted.

Recomended books!
