Yesterday was a rough day. After we got back from the ER, the bleeding slowed and I thought it was all finished. Then, a couple hours later, I felt about four subsequent rushes of blood. That was more than I bled yesterday morning. I was pretty sure the OB told me to call back if it started up again, but I couldn’t remember, so I just called. She said I would need to come back if I soaked through a pad an hour, started cramping really badly or if I just got really scared and needed some reassurance. You better believe I got my money’s worth out of my doppler last night! I bled intermittently through the evening, but my last big episode came at around 8 p.m. I felt something around 4 a.m., but when I checked it wasn’t really anything. I think it has slowed as of now, but I’m not going to get my hopes up. I am very ready to get into my doctor’s office this week so they can give me some more answers. I’m so grateful the baby looked so good yesterday and still sounds great, but I have to say, this has been a terrifying experience! I have determined that this baby didn’t want to be one-upped by Knox’s pre-term labor issues, so he decided to scare the crap out of me, as well. Why do I feel like this is only the beginning of my kids scaring me and stressing me out?
We’re still praying hard that everything calms down and this baby continues to develop healthily. It’s amazing how hard you can love a little baby you haven’t even met, yet, but this baby is already an integral part of our family. Also? I am feeling much more certain that this baby is another boy. I guess we’ll find out soon enough, but in the mean time, I am just thankful for a healthy baby amidst all of this chaos!
