Early yesterday morning at around 4:30am, I woke up feeling a slight trickle. It was a weird sensation, so I got to go to the bathroom thinking maybe my water broke?? It turned out to be blood, and lots of it. I called Brian, told him we needed to call the doctor to see what the heck was going on. The doctor didn’t seem too concerned, but told me to come in first thing in the morning at 8:30. A few minutes later, I passed a huge blood clot (gross I know), and we made another call to the doctor. She told us to go immediately to labor and delivery. Sooo, at 5am in the morning, we got dressed, tried not to panic and headed to the hospital. They strapped me to a baby monitor and wanted to see if I was experiencing any contractions. The baby’s activity was normal, there were no contractions, and the bleeding stopped. The doctor showed up at around 8:30, and mentioned that there wasn’t really a need to do any further testing. She told me to go home and rest.
It was quite the scare and it’s been the most eventful week.
Physically, I feel fine. No real aches or pains. Chest is feeling better but still a bit sore if I lay on my left side. I’ve been sleeping at least 7 hours a night, albeit uncomfortably.
Let’s hope nothing new or strange pops up. I’m hoping NOT to make any more trips to the hospital between now and Christmas Day.
