Well sorry for my absence from the board first of all...its been a crazy week.
I ended up back in OB Triage on Tuesday I woke up about 2am on tuesday and had another episode of what i thought had been my mucous plug the week before. Tried not to freak out too much, and went back to sleep. Woke up to my alarm at 6:30, and started getting ready for work. No more blood this time when I went to the bathroom. Went to work feeling okay...and then had some warm crampy feelings at around 9:45(kinda like the ones you feel right before you start your period). Went to the bathroom, and sure enough...more blood on the tissue when I wiped. I immediately called my Dr's office. The triage nurse told me to go straight home and put my feet up and call her in an hour. I drove straight to my moms (as she is an OB nurse) and did exactly that. Well I had about 4 contractions in about a 30 minute period, and the nurse told me to head back into L&D.
Once we got there, of course i went straight on the monitors. They observed me for about 30 minutes, and sure enough i wasnt crazy, i was feeling cramping/contractions. So they gave me a dose of medicine that is supposed to calm it down, and a bolus of IV fluids (even though they said my fluid level was perfect) and monitored me for another hour. After a possible overnight stay talk...they finally let me go home, but instructed me to stay in bed until my scheduled dr's appt the next day. And they said they were going to schedule an ultrasound the next day too, to see if they could find out why i was bleeding.
Well long story short, the u/s came back fine, they couldnt find a reason for the bleeding and they said i am totally closed and thick and high up and my cervix is nice and long (she even joked that i could give some away and still be fine lol). She instructed me to take it very easy these last 6 weeks, basically on bed-rest after work each day, and to head straight to L & D if I have any more bleeding.
On another note, they did say that my LO was on the small side, so they are doing another u/s in 3 weeks to monitor her growth...so now I have something NEW to worry about
Please keep me in your prayers, as I try not to go crazy from not being as active as I normally am, and that this LO gets fatter!!
Thanks for sticking with me if you made it this far!!
