What a day. *UPDATED 11-2*

I guess I will begin at the beginning. This morning, whenever we were standing up to leave chuch, I felt something warm and wet running down my leg. I ran to the bathroom and saw a trail of blood reaching down to my foot. I immediately ran back out and mouthed to my husband that we have to go now. My head was spinning and I could tell that I was about to pass out. I took off for the car, sat back, and blew the air at me full force. After a few minutes, my head cleared. We dropped the kids off at my MIL's and took off for the hospital. Once we got to the ER we got to back pretty quickly. They drew my blood to check my levels and after about an hour of waiting, they came back normal (over 150,000). So they called my OB to see what he wanted to do. He ordered an ultrasound. I had to get a catheter, first time for that, yuck! Althought I don't think it was totally neccesary, as my bladder was full! But anyway, we got in there and I couldn't see the screen, but DH had his eyes on it and was asking a ton of questions. When she saw there was a heartbeat (173), she turned the screen around so I could see it. She said heartbeat was perfectly fine and baby was measuring right where he was supposed to be. I don't know if this U/S machine was better than the one this past wednesday, or if the baby changes that much in a few days, but I could tell so much more about baby today! When the doctor came back in, he said that everything looked normal, and there was no reason that showed up on the ultrasound for me to be bleeding. Placenta was forming away from the cervix nothing seemed to be amiss. They sent me home with orders for strict bedrest, so here I am at home. Still bleeding slightly. I will call in the morning to get an appointment to see my doctor. I am not very good about resting, but I guess I will catch up on my reading, crochet, watch tv, and pray really hard! It makes it so much harder having two kids to take care of, but I believe my MIL will help out as much as possible. Which of course now, MIL knows. I just hope the bleeding stops and after a little while I get back into more of a normal routine. Please just say a prayer that was just some freak thing and baby will be ok!

Update:
Went in this afternoon to see the doctor, he did an exam, and said that my cervix is closed and what blood is there is dark and old. Which that is good news. He said that any number of things could have caused the bleeding. I will go back in on Friday to get a quick U/S jut to make sure baby is still ok and has a good heartbeat. He told me to take it as easy as I can until Friday and avoid lifting and anything too physical.

Update 2:
Had my ultrasound and baby's little heart was beating away! Baby was moving around and measuring exactly right. I am so glad and relieved! Just praying that I have no more bleeding episodes.

Oh my, how scary :bigarmhug: so they didn't see a possible cause of the bleeding? Most times I see some one on here with a story like this it is a subcorionic hematoma (sp I have no idea) and they usually resolve themselves with no harm to the baby but its likely you could experience more bleeding/spotting until it resolves assuming you do have something like that. Hope your doc has the report and can give you some more answers and reassurance. Take care of yourself.

thoughts and prayers coming your way. I know it's scary, but it can be just fine. I had bleeding with DD at the early stages and she turned out fine Smile

Oh how scary. I'm so sorry you are having to go through this, but it seems like whatever is causing the bleeding is not bothering that little baby one bit! How you're suppose to relax, I have no idea, but certainly do (or don't do) what you can.
