I know Im not an offical December member (haha) but I am having some cramping off and on followed by VERY light pink spotting. This happend with Rowan as well, and was told it was a threatend miscarriage. The cramping has become more and more painful today and I dont want to seem like a nutcase and go to the ER since I havent even been able to see a doctor yet(But the local hopital offers free pg testing urine and blood, both positive Im SUPER preggo lol) And since its NOT an emergency per se I feel foolish even worrying let alone going to the ER but the nurse whom both attended my last birth and gave me the pg test said that my chances of complications are higher since this pg is so close to the other.
Not sure what I am looking for actually, maybe just some "Hey there buddy, its all gravy in your womb chill out!" (:
We went to the er just to be safe after i posted. We were there much of the night and this morning.
Ultrasound tomorrow @ 730am. So far their guesses are/were-UTI-neg EctopicPG-waiting u/s Placenta Previa-waiting u/s. My hcg level are really really high so thats good. Glad I went, and I'll be glad to know what's going on in there! My ER doc was fantastic and even brought me like 10 pillows and 6 blankies to make a little nest for the kiddos once they got tired of the play area. We got home this morning and of course everyone is a bit grumpy.
on a side note, the "party" (literally like 8 ppl) in the room connected to mine got in serious trouble for smoking weed&cigs in the bathroom. My room smelled horrible as did the joined bathroom. They tried to cover it with mens body spray which made it worse. they were so loud, it was insane.
My 2nd and 3rd pregnancies were less than a year apart and I was still nursing my son. I was told that with my history of preterm labor, and the short time between pregnancies, that I was at a higher risk of losing my baby and that I had to stop nursing because of it. The person who told me this wasnt my usual doc (in fact she is a MW). But, I was in a bad place having just lost my grandma, and a good friend of mine and her DD. So, I went through my whole pregnancy scared **** less. My advice, go in and get checked out just for the piece of mind (and the US they will surely do ) and then, relax
With my first two pregnancies I had never spotted or had cramps. My 3rd pregnancy I began to bleed but never had cramps and it ended in m/c. With my 4th pregnancy (my son ) I spotted at the beginning and was so scared it was happening again. The next day I was having real bad cramping and I was scared so my DH got off work and took me to the ER. Turns out I was fine, the cramping, they said, was from constipation (lol!)
So have you been constipated? If so, that could be why. However, I would still get it checked out because I would rather seem crazy and paranoid to the ER staff than sit and worry if my baby was okay. (Ha totally off topic but with my last pregnancy I went to the ER like 5x before 20 weeks...when I would go in they actually remembered me LOL!)
KUP on how you are and what you do. (hugs)
PS I guess I've started unintentionally stalking you now huh?
I wouldn't feel bad for going to the er to get checked out, most of the time if you are spotting and cramping they will give you an ultra sound so you might be able to find out how far along you are. I spotted with this pregnancy and was in the er twice, once for light spotting and once for very heavy bleeding everything turned out fine, but I got two sonos out of it and some peace of mind. Hope you decide to go, I would be going crazy by now not knowing how far along I was.
I would call ur ob this am if u didn't end up going last night. Mine too are going to be very close!
I hope that everything is okay! I'm glad the Dr took good care of you. KUP on your u/s tomorrow.
I can not believe that there were people "partying" in the bathroom/adjoining room! That's just terrible. I mean, WTH is wrong with people?
