Sunday bloody Sunday...

Well, I woke up to blood in my pants this morning! There was a bit in the toilet when I went for the first time too... but nothing since then (well, I haven't gone to the toilet again...I'm trying not to obsess!). Surprising thing to me was that it was bright red blood- but I haven't noticed losing any plug. Last time I definitely lost white/creamy plug first, and then it turned kind of pink, and then there was blood. So hmmm... that said, during my last labor, I bled A LOT because I was dilating so fast.... so who knows... maybe I'm already dilating, even though I'm not having painful contractions????

Will keep you (or Kayla, though I know she's busy in the NICU) updated!

I did call my midwife...but, she's more worried about my engorgement issues (detailed in my birth lodge on the birthing naturally board if anyone cares) than an imminent baby. I kind of had to laugh about that. Smile

Here's my belly from today... I can't tell if I've dropped or not!

Sorry ladies... nothing going on at all.

I ended up in urgent care again today. I was there yesterday too. Basically, I've had an engorged clitoris for like 3-4 days, and it has been SERIOUSLY painful. That is why I went to the UC yesterday, because I just couldn't take it anymore. Well, turns out, first of all, no one knows anything about it and secondly if you have this when pregnant, there is seriously nothing you can do except ice and take Tylenol for pain. (If not pregnant one could take anti-inflammatory drugs or opiates.) So they sent me home just saying to keep doing what I was doing (ice, Tylenol and epsom salt baths), but to come back if it got worse or if there was weird discharge or bleeding or anything.

Well, I woke up to that blood this morning and thought it was labor related, but a little while later realized I was not bleeding vaginally, but in the clitoral region! So off to the UC we went again...but I got a different doctor and she was not cool. First she didn't even believe me that I wasn't bleeding vaginally (like there was no way *I* could know where I was bleeding from), and then when she finally did an exam and realized that I knew what I was talking about, she still totally downplayed it and acted like it was nothing. Thing is, the swelling was way down today from what it was yesterday (when the doc's eyes totally bugged out when she saw how swollen I was)- so this doc was convinced it was general vaginal swelling, not localized clitoral engorgement. So whatever. In any case, no baby, but thankfully, the swelling seems to be very slowly getting better.

Baby is still active, I'm having lots of very powerful contractions- even feeling them down low, down the front of my thighs even, but, they are still generally painless, so, not feeling like I'm in labor at all.

Wish I had more to report!

I can tell you this... Kayla is rooming in with Nora tonight, and if all goes well, they will go home together tomorrow! So that is at least some good news! I know Nora has been able to nurse, which Kayla is very happy about.

That is terrible, Mara! Are you feeling any better now? I've never heard of that before, sounds painful.

I am feeling MUCH better. I didn't have any bleeding or swelling yesterday. This whole thing was definitely a new, unwelcome, unexpected and hopefully never-repeated experience! It was incredibly painful.
