Q: Scared, slow fetal heart beat and blood clot behind the placenta ...

Im super terrified I went to the dr for our first ultrasound at 6 weeks 3 days the dr was concerned because the fetal heart beat was only 80 beats a min (instead of 90-110)..poss because i have to take a heart med that lowers my heart rate so i have now stopped that in order to try and save my baby.
// than he found a small hematoma (that has not caused any bleeding /spotting yet) and put me on bed rest for the next 2 weeks until my next ultrasound, we had the same thing happen last yr the clot was larger and caused heavy bleeding, in my second trimester it sent a clot to the baby and he passed.
im going out of my mind with worry, i want/love this baby so much !!
has anyone else had this problem and have a healthy baby ?
thanks for your help

I am an L&D nurse I know that this is scary. These clots can be common in early pregnancy. They can go away on their own, just stay around or can get bigger. hopefully the bedrest will help your body get ride of the clot! I have seen many of women with this problem have healthy babies!! praying for good out comes for you. BLESSINGS!!!
