Did you have the cramping and bleeding at the same time? And it still turned out OK? I'm trying not to get my hopes up too far, but maybe there's a chance?
On the other hand, when I went to the hospital today, I was in rough shape. My BP was quite low and they got me into emerg before anybody else. I had to wait only minutes & they wouldn't let my husband and daughter in until they "stabilized" me. So I had some scary moments in which I thought "just let me get through this in one piece so I'm here for my family" It was really all about ME in that moment, and that pregnancy took a far back seat and made me realize how grateful I am for what I have, how much I love my family and how basically happy I am with my life right now. Still, now that the scary moment is over and I'm quite sure I will survive (I'm sure I was in no REAL danger, but the doctors hustling like that panicked me) I would really like this pregnancy to continue. I think though, if it doesn't, I'm not trying again. As an older woman, I might be putting my health at risk. I never want to go through that again.
Holy crap that sounds scary! I'm so sorry you went through that on top of everything else you're dealing with! Your DH must have been so scared. Hugs to you, I can't imagine. Even if you were never in real danger....being whisked into the ER and having doctors hustle around you is never a good thing. That would have had my DH really upset. :(
Yes, I had bleeding and cramping at the same time. It started when I was around 5-6 weeks and was bright red, thick, thick blood. Sometimes, I'd go pee and it would jsut start dripping and then flowing out of me into the toilet. Like a heavy period, really. The cramps were period like cramps, too. The red blood started to let up after a couple of weeks (few weeks?) and turned sort of rusty orange...then slowly turned to brown...then brown spotting...then nothing. I think I was completely done with any spotting by about nine, maybe even ten weeks. Can't quite recall now. But I had an ultrasound that showed me everything was fine...so I just had to wait. I just knew everything was okay though, after the ultrasound. It was really weird how calm and peaceful I was about it. I hope you can feel the same way...I'm glad to hear that you can see the truly important thigns and were your blessings lie....but I'm so damned hopeful for you and this life inside you. I'm glad your cervix is closed. Mine was too. That's a good sign. It's okay if you can't get your hopes up right now...my hopes for you are sky high. ((hugs)) Stalking stalking...
