I really didn’t consider actual pregnancy complications as part of ‘me’ being pregnant. The boys were so uneventful and this one just seems like there is more to worry about. Well there is actually:P So Sunday night, I started bleeding. Totally freaked us out. It wasn’t a ton but it was to us. We called the Dr and he told me to go into labor and delivery to get checked out. We were kind of expecting that.
Once there, they did a few tests, the nurse called the Dr. and he said I should stay the night for a 24 hour watch. We were not expecting that. We didn’t get to the hopital til about 12:30am to start with. They needed to do some monitoring and blood tests and ultra sound so we decided at 2am that Joe would go get the boys at my mom’s and head back home.
The good news was that the bleeding wasn’t bad and it had stopped. Apparently 2 cups or so is bad and it was no where near that. I think I would have had a heart attack if I had that much. The bad news is that it means I will most likely have to have a c-section. I am not sure what my thoughts are on that… childbirth is scary natural or surgery. Being at the hospital overnight pretty much sucked. Monitors buzzing, IV bag changes, IV in my wrist KILLING me the entire time! I did not get much sleep.
It was also really weird hearing new babies crying and other heart rate monitors going. I mean, people were there having babies! It is not a place you want to be when you do not want your baby born yet. And being in a room with all the birthing stuff just made it all scary. I couldn’t wait to get out of there. Luckily I am just to take it easy and I am not on bed rest or anything.
So here’s to hoping for an uneventful 13 weeks. And I just realized I am under 100 days. It’s 92 to be exact!
