Hadn't thought of the poss. of losing a twin. I don't think so, just because the volume of blood wasn't that great, not a lot of clots (just some very small ones, not enough to hardly consider them clots), etc.
My midwife suggested that perhaps it's just bleeding that would occur during my normal cycle, or maybe some cervical abrasion (due to the blood vessels being enlarged/closer to the surface or whatever). No sex, as I just can't stand to be touched, much less intimate! (poor Dh, he is very patient!)
So, I am optimistic, but am cautious. I am trying to take it easy, but have so many things to do that really can't be put off, it's hard. I'm just trying to make life easier for me: lots of sandwiches instead of big meals, small amounts of laundry, letting the house slide (it really needs cleaning!), doing the minimal amount of stuff I can. My poor horses are barely getting a lick and a promise with regards to their care. Same with my cat.
We recently began a s system whereby the children have set chores, and others that are assigned for pay. This is helping tremendously, as they can do so much to help out around the house and yard. Plus, they like knowing they are contributing to the family, and earning some spending money. So that's taking some of the work off my shoulders, too.
