The Not So Good Day.....

Last night before I went to bed, I was very crampy.  This is not out of the ordinary for this pregnancy, I've been crampy from day one.  I took a couple of tylenol and went to bed.
  This morning I woke up to blood and cramps.  I tried to stay calm until I could call my doctors office.  It was the most difficult 45 minutes of my life.  I called and they said that they had to wait for a doctor or midwife to come in.  I got Ella dressed and ready for my parents house (figuring she was probably going to stay there for the day) and went up and got dressed myself.
 9 o'clock rolls around and the midwife calls and asks what's going on.  I tell her I've been bleeding for an hour and a half and the cramping is getting pretty intense.  She proceeds to say that I can come in for an ultra sound but it won't be able to tell us much because in a couple of days things could be different.  I asked her if we would be able to see a subchorionic hematoma if there was one and she said yes.  So I told her I wanted an ultrasound.  Which I feel she should've just said to come in for in the first place, but what do I know.
 There was no SCH The babies appeared to be fine and grew since Tuesday.  They are measuring 1 and 2 days ahead of schedule with very strong heartbeats. I'm on restricted activity for a little while because they couldn't find the source of the bleeding and cramping so it could be anything.  I'm still bleeding and still cramping. 
  This is so frustrating, to get this far, and still be unsure of the outcome.  I was on cloud 9 on Tuesday when we saw both babies were beautiful and healthy.  Thoughts and prayers would be appreciated.  I will update soon!

Oh, Christa, my parents are here for the holiday, and we just read your post. We're all sending you good wishes and prayers. I'm glad the ultrasound looked OK. I hope this is nothing, and the babies are doing fine.

I am sorry, after everything that is so scary! I will pray for you guys. I wanted to let you know I went into labor quite early, with my last it was at week 11! The doctors said because I was so aware of my body I prevented a miscarriage. They had me on 800mg of ibuprofen until week 16. It stopped the cramping and bleeding. Maybe that is something you could talk to your doctor about. They said it is the safest way to stop it but you aren't suppose to take Ibuprofen later in the pregnancy because it can cause low fluid. Good luck with everything.
