Scary...

Sooo, was having a fairly normal day yesterday and today. Yesterday night I had some light spotting[brown blood and red] and cramping but later this afternoon it was insane. Like HOLY CRAP IM GUNNA DIE pain. So I called my OB who sent me to the ER where I had to sit for 3 hours. But here is what happend:

I came into the ER right after work, was put to the front of the line [ahead of a guy with a possible broken arm] and went back to a private room where I got down to my skivies and into a hospital gown. I had an ER nurse come in to collect all my info, then another ER nurse to explain what will happen and who will be doing the proceadures.

Then a nurse came into draw my blood and collect a pee sample. I told him that my veins were hard to get at. He said he would give it a try and just check and see if he could find a good one to try. He tried to find a good vein and wasnt comfortable enough to stick me over and over again since I was already a nervous wreck. He said in the lab there was a girl who was the QUEEN on getting impossible veins. Thank heavens he was right! She got it on the first try and I could hardly feel it.

After that was said and done the ER NP came in and said he would be my doctor and would be performing a internal/external pelvic exam with tests as well. He went and got a female nurse to come in and help. They were quick and descriptive and very nice. After that the doctor said he would run my blood for a beta & infections and urine for any infections. Since I had not had a doctor confirmed pregnancy they needed to make 100% sure I was actually pregnant.

My beta came back and they sent me for an ultrasound to make sure everything was okay inside and that nothing was out of place [ie; ectopic pg] That came back normal. [She did however see something interesting, she saw my 'apple-seed' in my uterus BUT she also saw what may be 'apple-seed 2' or it could just be a cyst next to kiddo2.] Beta was good. They sent all my labs to my OB who was on call anyway and she and the u/s tech both comfirmed I am about 5 weeks along.

Overall I was told I had/have "threated miscarriage. Which about 40% of "T/M" end in miscarriage. But 60% go on to have almost perfect pregnancies. I have another blood draw on Friday and I have to make a appt with my OB and more than likely until the cramping and bleeding stop I will be considered High Risk.

I can still do daily life acctivities. But no sex for a while, no lifting anything heavier than 40lbs and sit or lay as much as possible during the day. I should also avoid sitting in the heat for long periods & running/working out [ugh].

I am holding tightly to that 60% and praying my little apple seed stays in place!

How scary for you!!
I hate the term threatened miscarriage. They throw it around like tissues. A pregnant woman comes in with cramps or pain or spotting and they use that term even if there's no indication that anything is 'wrong' per se.

Ok off my soap box LOL

I'm really sorry you had to go through that Sad I am sending truck loads of sticky vibes and peace of mind thoughts your way :bigarmhug:

Thanks Ladies.

The bleeding seems to have stopped for now. I am taking it easy today, just sitting around the house and trying to keep my mind pre-occupied. Hubby and kiddo are taking good care of me today. I am anxious for my blood draw tomorrow, I am hoping the number is good! Calling the OB soon to set up my appt for next week.

I appreciate all the t&p's means a lot. Positive thinking!!

Just got off the phone with my OB, she said all my numbers are awesome & my u/s looked good as well. I still need a blood draw tomorrow and as will get it drawn once a week for the next 3 weeks to make sure all is well. She said as long as the numbers keep going up and looking good that I wont have to worry and I wont have to come in for a full exam.

Movie day sounds fun! When I was working as a Nanny in the city I'd be exhausted and pregnant and have THREE two year olds running me around like crazy and once I passed out on a bean bag chair while we were all playing in the playroom. hehehe Smile
