Well, yesterday while I was at work, I was talking to a client when I felt a gush of warmth from my vagina. I calmly excused myself from the conversation to use the restroom. As I pulled down my pants, I prayed that it wouldn't be blood, and sure enough it was. I just went numb. Blood didn't just drip out, it poured out. I cleaned myself up and put a huge wad of TP to soak up the blood until I got home. I continued to gush as I finished up with my client. DH took me to the ER and thankfully I got into a bed right away. All the while, my only comfort was that I was experiencing no pain or dizziness. I layed in the hospital bed crying and praying. After 3 hours of waiting for the u/s, my blood tests all came back normal and I was wheeled into the u/s room. I patiently kept quiet as the u/s tech did her thing, and I just couldn't keep quiet any longer. I asked about the baby, and she turned the monitor for me to see my precious little peanut kicking and flipping away. I just began to weep with relief. All the images showed no cause for bleeding. My placenta is attached in the ideal spot, no previa.....it's a mystery...just random vaginal bleeding.
After all day in bed today, the bleeding has finally stopped. After eating my lunch today, I rolled over to take a nap. While laying there with my full belly pressed up against a pillow, I could feel squirming in the lower part of my abdomen. It wasn't gas...it was that familiar feeling you get when you first feel movement. It made me smile so big.
The Dr. said this was common, and that most of the time women go on to have no complications in their pregnancies....but that I am at higher risk for a miscarriage. Has anybody else experienced this?
ETA: It was my 9 year wedding anniversary yesterday!
