Ok, its me again, with the "what if's" :

Who here can tell me about blood/bleeding during labor? I only had a little tiny bit with my last labor. I was hands and knees on a chux pad and saw some reddish stuff but was waaaay too far in la-la land to even speak let alone ask the MW a question.

what if this time there was a good deal of blood? Then Iam getting into do we monitor heart-tones, 'cuz we didnt plan to........Would it mean some kind of abruption or something?

I just want this UC to go so well, and dont want me and DH to freak out if something happens that we think is "bad" when it is actually "ok". Do not want to decide to drive to hospital unless TOTALLY necessary, and to be honest I dont know what that even means......

I also dont want DH asking me a bunch of questions when I am in laborland, but I dont know what else to do to "prepare" besides lay in bed all night and think of wierd scenarios !!! I have read ALL the websites and books, I think ....

Thanks in advance......
