Friday afternoon, my mom and I took Chase to a part to swing. While we were there I felt the worse cramping and pelvic pain I’d ever felt, aside from labor. That evening around midnight, when I got up to use the restroom I saw I was bleeding. Very light pink, but blood none the less. I spent the night lying awake, trying to sleep, but that was almost impossible. By morning I was cramping and bleeding steadily. I called my Doctor in Arvada and he told me if it wasn’t bright red right now, to just rest and we would see him on Monday for an ultrasound. He told me if it worsened to go the to ER here in Ft. Collins.
Last night I felt a rush and ran to the bathroom to find more blood than before, but this time dark red. We decided then to go to the ER. In the ER they did a pelvic exam which hurt more than it should have. Meaning, something inside of me is so tender and that is different than before. After that exam, I felt so much pain and pressure. They told me I was bleeding from my pelvic area but they couldn’t see where it was coming from and they told me it could be from a rupture in the placenta, which isn’t life threatening for the baby, but it is painful and bloody sometimes.
I just wanted to see our baby because at this point, I felt I had lost him/her and they couldn’t hear a heartbeat from above and wanted to do an ultrasound.
So we got an ultrasound and saw our baby’s heartbeat and him/her wiggling around like crazy. I started crying, I felt such relief. As of right now, everything looks healthy inside of my uterus and the baby is totally healthy too.
I am so confused right now as to why I am cramping and bleeding. Last night after we left and returned home, I began to bleed bright red and then back to dark red again. They did tell me I would bleed more from the exam, so that helped put me at ease a little bit. But honestly, I just want to know what is going on. Right before we left, a doctor came in and told me to be on “bed rest” until I see my doctor (monday, hopefully) and that if the bleeding and cramping worsened, this could very well be a miscarriage and there is nothing they can do to prevent it. That made me leave with peace of mind (sarcasm).
Anyways, I am writing to ask you to please pray for our baby! I am worried and I have a heavy heart today. I just want this to stop and the baby to be okay. In my mind, I keep thinking, “what if that was the last time I will ever see my baby?” and this really isn’t helping. Please, please pray for us!
PeaceI leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. -Jesus (John 14:27)
I was just making breakfast and saw this verse on the kitchen message board. My sister had pinned it there for my grandma when she was walking through a difficult time with Cancer. It just struck me so deeply. And I wanted to add this.
