I have been taken off work to see if the bleeding tapers off (it has eased up a bit since yesterday). I have lost my plug and have been having intermittent back aches however. There is nothing they are doing right now. If nothing changes they will keep me either off work or part time work. If things get worse, I will go in for a cortisone shot and take it from there.
I had bright red blood when I wiped this evening. My belly had been tight all day but no pain.
I debated just waiting to see what would happen but decided to call our health line and they told me to go in to l&d.
It took the nurse forever (minutes) to find the HB. Thank goodness it was kicking like crazy but I was still close to tears. We couldn't keep the HB on the monitor though so I had to hold the monitor the whole time (we really had to push). I had 2 cervical checks while there and cervix is closed. They don't know where the bleeding is coming from so if I still have bleeding throughout the night I have to go in tomorrow for another check.
Of course he doesn't think it is anything but worst case is the beginning of preterm labour. I have a feeling it was just a weird bleed.
yikes! Glad you decided to go in and get checked. It's better to be safe than sorry at this point!

Did you push yourself too much yesterday? Had a big bm? DTD? Had a coughing fit? Those are the things that make me bleed.
I hope it goes away for you, it feels like this board is having too many issues and these babies need to calm down!
I hope everything has calmed down! That is so scary...I'm having that same issue this time around so I know how hard it is to stay calm when that happens. I've been finding that I bleed everytime I have a particularly busy or stressful day, when I'm on my feet a lot - so maybe your body is telling you to take it easy!
Glad you went in and got things checked out and they were able to send you home! take care of yourself
