Ups and Downs
I haven't been writing because there have been many ups and downs and I've spent most of my time on my back, in prayer, talking to the baby, and being frightened at work. The ups have been that we went in Monday and heard a great heartbeat again and the baby was measuring perfectly. The hematoma was still there, the same size. The downs have been that Tuesday I started having thin, brown spotting. It turned into thin red spotting Wednesday so I called off work and stayed in bed. I went to work Thursday and all was fine. Friday (today) I cleared the crinone out and it was black with coagulated blood. I knew then the bleeding hadn't stopped, just wasn't heavy. I went to work and was having a great day. Again, sitting around and talking with my coworkers, telling stories. I got up to go to the bathroom and WHAM...red blood pouring out of me. At least this time I had a panty liner. I called the Brain and then texted my nurse. I told my charge nurse I was going home and left. We'll have an ultrasound tomorrow morning. I hope the baby is OK.
