unscheduled doc visit

Cramping and spotting started yesterday. Google scared the bejeezles out of me, so I called today and they had me come in. My regular doc was in delivery so I saw one of her partners. This one is about to pop anyday now and she was also headed to the hospital to make a delivery, but stayed to see me.

She let me hear the heartbeat for just a second. Long enough to let me know everything was fine, but too short for my liking. I could listen to that noise all day.

Then she wanted me to get an US to check the placenta and measure my cervix, but wanted me to wait there for another 1.5 hours to get the US. Normally, I would have, but she didn’t seem concerned at all and I needed to get back to work. She insisted that I have one this week to measure the cervix. That will be on Thursday.

The spotting turned from pink to brown between yesterday and today. Turns out I have a little yeast in my cervical fluid and she wants to treat that with Terazol. I’m so sick of these cervical issues scaring the crap out of me. The official word is that I have a “delicate cervix”.

It still doesn’t explain the cramping. She thinks I’m constipated. I say I’m not since I had two good ones yesterday.

  1. Whew! I am so happy everything is okay.

  2. I’m glad all is ok. HOpefully after the u/s you will feel better knowing the status of your cervix. I’m sure googling about cramping and spotting in the 2nd tri would scare the bejeezus out of anyone! I’ll be sending lots of good vibes that is all is ok. Hang in there.

  3. seriously… baby is grounded right after delivery, mkay?
