to keep it interesting…

29 May

we needed a little break in the monotony. or at least that is what the little beans decided. so yesterday i was having my usual nausea and getting sick on and off at work. but in the late afternoon i started to feel cramping. i have been crampy in the past few weeks a couple of times but it was pretty fleeting. this cramping however went on. and on. i finished out my work day and picked up hook for his tee-ball game. watched the game and was still feeling a bit off. headed home where i noticed a bit of blood. not a lot but more than nothing. and i panicked. really panicked. i felt the walls closing in on me and i was scared. i called m who was out with some friends and she immediately came home (even though i told her not to). put a call in to my dr’s office and left a message with the answering service. the on call doc called me back in about 15 minutes. she calmed my nerves by explaining this was pretty normal and to just take it easy until morning when i could call the office to schedule an u/s for today. so i went to sleep. and actually slept for a bit. still worried but less than before. woke up feeling okay. read nauseous and hungry. and called for an appointment. time was set and i waited a bit before heading over. m met me at the office and one of the fantastic nurse practitioners met us to take a look. immediately she said everything looks great upon seeing 2 heart beats and i felt the grip on my heart loosen a touch. taking a closer look at each little bean both are measuring perfectly. and their hearts are beating away. bean a at at 179. bean b at 178. after assuaging my fears and confirming all was well the np tried to determine a source of the bleed but was still unconcerned. cervix is closed. a few cysts on my ovaries but again nothing worrisome. i was more than relieved. i was ecstatic. and finally able to take a deep breath again. no exercise for a bit. shouldn’t be too difficult considering i am not allowed to run. i basically want to sleep and eat. and it is rather hot out.

let’s hope that is about as exciting as things get for a while…

    i had bleeding at about 11 weeks…it was a subchorionic hematoma that resolved itself. so glad that both you and the babies are okay!

    So completely relieved that everyone is doing well. I can understand how frightening this experience would. Happy you received heartbeats of reassurance and hoping that boringness replaces the excitement and interestingness of the most recent happenings. Take care sweetie!
