Having a rough time :-(

Well it all started on Sunday when I went to loo and had dark blood on toilet roll. I wasn't too concerned as it was dark and I can feel her kicking about lotts. So the next morning I got up and had more dark blood on underwear. Again wasn't too concerned as she was still moving and it was dark (brown) so went to work and after lunch there was a little but more - still dark tho. So because I know I am o rhs negative I rang my midwife who told me to ring the maternity assessment unit at the hospital as I would have to have a anti D injection.

So at the hospital I had an internal and cervix is fine and closed. She said she could see the blood but not were it came from. She was kicking loads and the doc could feel her kicking and hb was 150 so all seemed ok. Had to go back next day for injection.

Then Wednesday I had some red blood on toilet roll. (small amount but red) so I rang and as I had inj and it was light I was jut to keep an eye on it. Luckily have had no more but I'm suffering terribly with heavyness and feel like I have to carry my belly - I have a maternity band on too.

So currently I'm off on the sick for a few days rest. I have been getting what I assume Is round ligament pain.

So just a bit down at the moment I guess. Ohh and sickness has made an appearance again too Sad

Thanxs for listening to me go on x

Hope you are all doing better x

Awwwww I'm sorry you're going through all of this...... Glad you went into the maternity ward to get assessed though.

I mentioned to my Dr that I kinda felt something similar about the belly being really heavy all of a sudden, and she mentioned that around 20-ish weeks the baby usually has a pretty big growth spurt, so many that's what's causing that pain?

Hang in there, glad you're on rest for a few days. I hope you're feeling better soon!!

Keep us posted!

Hang in there, and KUP!
Try to spend as much of your time resting on your left side as you can. And my standard pregnancy advice: drink tons of water!

Hey Smile things are much better, no more bleeding and she is still kicking loads. Only bad thing is the sickness which is nowhere near as bad as it was. So over all things are much better.

It's started snowing here :-0 not looking forward to walking in that.

Hope everyone else is doing well x
