I had a very scary night last night...It all started when I was on the phone with my fiance Chris while he was at work. I coughed a few times and I thought I had wet myself a little, kept talking for a second then got up to go to the bathroom and liquid was running down my legs. I went to the bathroom, only to discover that it is not pee, but blood and a lot of it. I make him come home and call my mom. I go to the ER and to my surprise everything is fine. The baby is measuring right where it should be and has a heart beat of 179. They can't find a source of the bleed. They think I could just be one out of a very few that bleed during pregnancy and nothing is wrong, or it could be the start of placenta previa, but the placenta is too small to see on the ultra sound. They don't think that is very likely because I have no pain what so ever. I have an appointment for Friday to see my OB and the ER is sending her all my info so I can have another sono when I go. The bleeding has gotten a lot lighter today but I am still bleeding and I still have no pain. I am supposed to be doing as little as possible but with a 4 year old running around it has been a little difficult. Hopefully everything will be ok in the end but I have prepared myself in case it doesn't. I was so shocked when I saw the heartbeat blinking in the ultrasound. Thanks for letting me share and I will keep everyone posted.
Wow, that is so scary! I'll keep thinking of you and your LO, hope it is all going to be okay. **big hugs**
Definitely scary! With my DS, I had 3 large bleeds around 13 weeks. I went to the bathroom and just bright red blood filled the entire toilet!! I spotted a bit afterward and then it happened again 2 more times. They could never find anything on the u/s and DS was fine. They figured it was a vessel on my cervix that suddenly burst since there is so much more blood going to that area when you're pg. It was scray though, but everything was fine!
I'm sooo glad that everything with baby is ok. KUP for sure. (((hugs)))
