This morning I squatted down to pick up my son and I felt a small gush. I ran to the bathroom and sure enough, there was bright red blood, not much but enough to color the water in the toilet. I called my mw's office and they had me come in. She did an exam and an ultrasound and bloodwork. All the signs are good so far - closed cervix, gestational sac there and measuring correct for dates, very very light cramping (gone now), and very little blood. Unfortunately, it's too soon to hear a heartbeat, so I have to go back in 2 weeks for another ultrasound.<br><br>
I've never had anything like this; my first two pregnancies were perfect. My mw said some women bleed just like a normal period while they are pregnant, or it could even be implantation bleeding (at 5w3d? what do you think?). She asked if there was anything she could do, offered to take me out of the office the back way to avoid the waiting room, and gave me a big hug. I think I love her.<br><br>
On a lighter note, I found out that she was the one who "caught" me when I decided to be born while my mom was trying to scoot over onto the delivery bed and the doctor was off doing a c-section. My mom was with me, which I am so thankful for, and she remembered the name. The mw had been a nurse then, I may have been her first delivery!<br><br>
So... I am stressed because DH was offered a job 20 hours away and we are not sure what to do at this point. I've been sick with a bad cold for over a week, my grandma is dealing with cancer and not doing well, and on top of that I was babysitting up to 3 kids in addition to my own 2! Now this - I'm being forced to slow down, which is good. Please send some stickiness my way for the little bean!

Awww, hugs. I had a " period" with my first, right when AF was due, although it was very light. Two weeks later, my boobs had been super sore. I decoded to take a test and it was positive! Then again at 10 weeks I had some spotting, but everything turned out fine.<br><br>
Hang in there and keep us updated! Hugs and sticky vibes for you!!<br><br>
ETA: how wonderful your midwife is so great!! That's so cool she delivered you!

I don't have any words of wisdom to offer being that this is my first go-around, but I will keep you in my thoughts and hope that everything turns out well.<br><br>
Also, how awesome that your midwife delivery you when you were born. I found out a few years ago that the midwife who attended my delivery is now some high-ranking member of a national midwifery advancement group, although the name is escaping me now (both hers and the groups).<br><br>
I don't know about the rest of you ladies, but that sounds like quite a lucky sign to me.

I had the exact same thing happen to me when I was pregnant with DD (except mine happened when I laughed at something DH said). Everything turned out well (she'll be 3yo next month) so I am sending those positive vibes your way!

DDCC- with everything looking fine, it sounds like a subchorionic hematoma which does NOT threaten your pregnancy (if the clot was large enough, it could, but if you did an U/S then you would have seen it for sure if it were large enough)<br><br>
Tons of women get them and go on to have perfectly healthy babies... as far as I know thats the only possible cause of an actual gush of bright red blood in a healthy pregnancy... if it was just a little spotting or brown/pink thats a different story (still fine, but would be caused by other things)<br><br>
Good luck! Hope all turns out well.<br><br><br>
Very neat story about you/your mom/your midwife though!

OMG... I can't freaking believe this. *warning, cussing below*<br><br>
My husband is in Colorado right now, and he is coming home late tomorrow night. He got a message from our friend (Isaac) that said, "I heard some interesting news about you, call me"<br>
He was like, "so you heard I was offered a job here, huh?"<br>
"um, no..."<br>
My "best friend" CALLED ISAAC AND TOLD HIM I HAD A MISCARRIAGE.<br>
She fucking KNOWS that isn't necessarily even TRUE yet, and the way she said it was like, I know something you don't know. She was USING me to "one-up" him, like "see who's the better friend?" kinda thing.<br><br>
History lesson: See, they ("bf" and Isaac) dated, have a child together and now she hates him but is civil. Most of the time.She got mad at me because I didn't turn on him when she did, just because she got pregnant by him. He was my good friend before they started dating and I don't believe he did anything wrong, so I'm not going to "side" with her just because we've been friends since first grade. This was about 8 years ago, by the way. She got over it, I guess. Or I thought.<br>
Why the hell would she a) lie, and b) spread our personal business around? When Paul called me and told me about it, he was livid and asked for her phone number, I gave it to him. I know he is level-headed and if he does call her he will be kinder than I would. I am just in shock. Isn't it enough what I have to deal with already? She passes herself off as such a great friend, but dammit, she's done enough hurtful shit to me already. I don't know how much more I can take.<br><br>
I babysit her other daughter (hers and herhusband's) so I'll have to see her Monday, and I don't even want to look at her right now. What am I supposed to say? At least it'll only be a few more weeks and she'll be done teaching for the summer.<br>
Oh, and she's pregnant too. What if it were the other way around? I think I'm all cried out for today, I'm just feeling kind of numb.
