|feel discouraged. Is there anyone out there who had periodic bleeding episodes whilst preg. and went on to have a healthy, full-term child? I would love to hear some encouraging stories. Bedrest is really hard!!
MEmememe!!!! My son ws such a stinker--I had such heavy bleeding for the first 5 months, I didn't even know I was pg!! I always have issues with my cycles, and thought I had ovarian cancer, or something. Anyway, I had an appt. to see my OB, but since I was new, it took forever for me to get in to see him. Well, before I could get in to see him the first time, I went into preterm labor and spent Thanksgiving in the hospital. Imagine, finding out you're pregnant, 20 weeks to boot!!!!, and that you are in preterm labor. Anyway, the bleeding with him was quite a bit, and I even had a "gusher" one night with lots of clots. He was born at 39 weeks healthy and strong, and beautiful!! We did have to do bedrest here, too, and it does suck. Have you checked out sidelines.org? They can hook you up with an email buddy to help you with support. I am a volunteer that does this and have met some really amazing women through the process.
I had bleeding with this babe, too, and here I am at 21 weeks with full confidence we'll have another full-term babe.
Good luck, and feel free to PM me, if you'd like.
