A little scare today

This morning, when I woke up and went to the bathroom, I wiped, and there was blood on the toilet paper. I checked to see where it was coming from, and it didn't seem to be vaginal. It seemed more like it was coming from my urethrea.

I figured I might have a urinary tract infection, even though I didn't have any other symptoms, but I was still scared. Any time you see blood during a pregnancy, it's scary, so I called the doctor. They had me come in at 11 a.m.

By that time, the bleeding had stopped. She did a urine culture and a swab to see if it could be a yeast infection. Both came back clear. She's sending the urine specimen off to see if anything shows up that way.

She said it was probably just a fluke if the long test on the urine doesn't come back showing an infection. It definitely wasn't vaginal blood, and my cervix is closed. Ella's heartrate was very strong, and she even kicked the doppler. Tessa did that once, too.

They told me to come home and take it easy today and call if we have any problems. I asked about going on our trip to my inlaws this weekend, hoping to get out of it, but she said it would be all right if nothing else happened. I don't want anything else to happen, so we will be going on our trip. Brian was all for canceling it, though, and he might still decide to do so. I'm leaving it up to him.

That is scary. The same thing happened to me. Turned out to be a bacterial infection. A week or so on antibiotics and all was good. I am glad it was just a fluke!

I had the same thing yesterday too, but not to get too graphic, mine was from being extremly constipated right now. But, my heart stopped beating until I could figure out where it was coming from...

I'm glad that you and Ella are doing good. Gotta love pregnancy! I can't wait until all of us are through and holding our rainbow babies!
