Had a scare…

So, I've been having these weird 'feelings' if you will.  Not necessarily cramping.  Not necessarily contractions.  Just a feeling that something 'was not right'.  So I called the peri's office on Thursday and talked at great length with the nurse, Mary.

I explained to her what was going on.  She asked me all the questions that I knew she was going to ask (from the many times that I had spoken with her while pg with Nicholas) and she gave me some things to look for.  If any thing changed or any new things happened, I was to call back immediately.

Well, yesterday something 'new' happened that never happened while I was pg with Nicholas, nor with the girls, and it was VERY scary.  I had started spotting.

When I called, I spoke with the RN, who immediately paged the peri on call.  They wanted me to come in.  Luckily, my sister was here so we didn't have to worry about who was going to stay home with Nicholas, or take him with us so late in the evening.

We went in, they checked my cervix, my cerclage, and looked at the baby and my placenta using both TVU and TAU (types of ultra-sound).

The baby looked great and is most definitely STILL a boy!

The resident couldn't find the source of the spotting (bleeding) and said it *could* be my placenta since it's pretty low lying.  Not 'true' previa (where the placenta covers the cervix) but very close (less than 2cm from the cervix).  It *could* move up as the uterus and baby continue to grow and they're going to have to keep an eye on it, especially if I have the same thing happen again.

Luckily, we got home in time to put Nicholas to bed.  So that was a blessing, as well as things being fine.
