So it's done. Just like that. I would have been 11 weeks today.
I had contractions that got stronger, longer and closer together, just like when DD was born. I was going to go into the hospital because they were really starting to worry me, so I decided to time one of them. It lasted 5 MINUTES!! But then the placenta and everything came out.
I bled quite heavily for a couple of minutes, then the bleeding slowed right down, just like when DD was born. It felt like I'd had a baby. I desperately wanted to take a shower, which is exactly what I did right after DD's birth, too. It's weird how similar the two experiences were.
Then I cleaned up, threw the bloodied stuff into the laundry machine, and I'm sitting here drinking hot cocoa like nothing happened.
It's like the twilight zone. What the heck just happened??
