scary morning

I woke up bleeding and passed 2 big clots. So I called the doc’s office. “Karen” told me that they close at 11:30 on Fridays and they didn’t have any openings for an u/s.

She called me back about a half hour later and told me to come in for a fetal heart check. My doc wasn’t there today so I got one of her partners. She ended up checking my uterus from the outside and said it was nice and big. What? Nice and big? I’ve searched everywhere down there for something different and can’t feel a thing. I guess it would be nice to be trained to know what you were feeling for.

Anyway, the heartbeat was wooshing away at 150 bpm. That was the first time I heard it. I saw it last time I was there. It was so awesome. She said she even heard a little movement in there. I think I cried. The doc doesn’t seem concerned and has no clue why I’m bleeding or where the clots came from. As of right now, the bleeding is gone.

Next regularly scheduled appt is next Wednesday.

  1. I’m so glad to hear that all is well. Finding bleeding is terrifying… its like the world stops for a second while you try and wrap your head around it. And then (at least for me) that panicy sobs began. Even though, sometimes its nothing

  2. That is so scary! I am so glad everything is ok. And it is wonderful that you got to hear the heartbeat. (I had my last bleeding episode at about 11 and a half weeks, and I never want to go through that again.)

  3. Thank goodness everything is okay!

  4. What a terrifying morning. I’m glad that everything is ok and sending lots of prayers for less excitement.

  5. I am happy to hear that Baby TP is doing well. I told you, he’s grounded when he/she is born, okay?
    Baby TP, quit stressin’ your mama out!

    And I’m glad to hear that they are monitoring you closely.
