So last Friday (Feb. 19th) I got up to use the bathroom in the morning. **TMI FYI** I wiped and there it worst fear...tinged reddish/pink/brownish toilet paper. **End TMI**
I tried my best not to panic. Dave was already at work, and my parents were on the way to my place so I could drive them to the airport. So I calmly, yet quickly, called the pre-term labor nurses. They asked about cramping...nope, contractions....nope. She had me lay down for an hour, check for contractions and she would call me back. So that is exactly what I did. Nothing. Whew...
She called back, I reported my non-findings. She advised that it could have been old blood from when I was first bleeding in the pregnancy. WOW....that stuff really hangs in there!
So I was told to go on bedrest for 24 hours. I told her I had to drive my parents to the airport...I was told, drive them there, drop them off and come back home and get into bed. So that is exactly what I did. Nope...I didn't tell my parents what had just happened. They were on their way to vacation, I didn't want to spoil or worry them.
So I finally told my husband on the way home from the airport. He was at work and I didnt want to worry him either.
The rest of the day was well, spent in bed. I had no other issues and haven't seen then. I was super spoiled. Dave catered to my every need. Lucky me. I was brought a yummy lunch and a terrific dinner. He even got the wireless working so I could lay in bed and still surf the web!
So that was my scare....and I will be happy with no more of them...thank you very much!!!
