Ugh long morning!

So I had some bright red blood this morning. Not a lot but enough to make me a little worried. Doc said go to L&D and just get checked out. I had JUST been to the doc yesterday and I could feel the baby moving just fine but you know how those what ifs just run in your head and you know it's better to get checked even if it's nothing? We had DTD last night and the doc agreed it was probably related but the blood was bright red and so I went in. And THREE HOURS LATER everything is fine. Cervix is soft but nothing out of the norm, NST was totally normal good HB no contractions of any merit, and the u/s was normal placenta and cord etc all fine and baby measuring right on. So my mind is at ease and we have no restrictions or anything since all was fine so if I have any other light spotting I can just monitor. But it took THREE HOURS. Now I have a very crabby toddler b/c he only got an hour nap. Phew. Long morning. Glad all is well just wish it was faster LOL

I'm so glad you and baby are OK Katie! I know how scary any sight of blood, no matter the color, can be in pregnancy!

Thanks ladies Smile I'm glad it's all fine and I got an all clear......I'll be relieved in 10 weeks when baby is on the outside and I can go back to a wait and see approach to my own body LOL I don't mind doctors but I'm usually willing to give medical things a chance to resolve themselves
