Talk about a scary moment that turned into a blessing.
I started bleeding last night.
I totally freaked.
I've never had this happen with either one of my pregnancies, and it just felt wrong. I calmly called my mom to let her know I would be calling the OB in the morning.
Then I broke down.
Then my 3 year old broke down too.
For some reason, I'm immensely attached to this baby. I know you would think that's to be expected, but you have to understand-this is the first pregnancy I HAVEN'T been stressed about. I'm actually excited.
With my first, I got pregnant right in the middle of a horrible fight with my husband. We hadn't talked to each other in days. We HATED each other.
My second child? I got pregnant in the middle of having PPD. Yeah.
This one? My life is pretty great. My husband and I are closer than ever, and I am just liking where we are as a family.
Thus, making this pregnancy a perfect moment for me.
So now you understand the panic that I had. After talking to my mom, she decided to take me to the ER to get checked.
They did a pelvic exam, took blood, urine samples, and did two different ultrasounds.
Then I got my results.
My body was attempting to have an abortion.
Not my words. It's actually on my discharge papers.
They found that I had two different infections going on in my body, although I had no symptoms. Something that wouldn't have been caught until I went to the OB after the holidays.
One infection in particular, a bacterial one, causes the body to abort-or miscarriage- the baby. Thankfully, both infections can be treated, and I am on two different medications.
Also, both my hormone levels and what they saw on the ultrasounds suggests that everything is okay, but I have to go back to an OB in the morning to get the levels tested again. If they have doubled, than I should be in the clear.
Please pray for that. My nerves are a bit shot, but at the same time-I am so thankful that I felt the urgency to get checked out. Who knows what would have happened if I would have waited?
This is definitely one of those moments where God turned something that I thought was horrible-into a good thing.
So now I am resting up, and trying not to do very much until I can get my final results.
I'll keep everyone posted.
Thanks for the listening ears, ladies and gents.
I can't feel alone in this.
