Well, got woken up this morning(Sunday) early hours at 1.28am to a wet sensation in my Pjs, thought oh bugger I have wet myself (this is my 3rd pregnancy at 12weeks to the day and no previous bed wetting experiences).
Went to the toilet and my bottoms were sopping in blood and the bed bottom sheet was stained. When I wiped there was fresh red blood and clots on the tissue. I instantly thought crap, what the hell do I do.
I woke my husband up and told him and asked him what he thought I should do. I didn't really want to disturb him as he had an early start on Sunday but I thought he would be annoyed if I didn't wake him, so I did.
I rang 111 to ask for advise as thought 999 was a little extreme. The phone operator asked me a few standards questions like "Am I currently breathing" WTF......"Erm Yes I think so" was my reply, but joking aside he said that as I was clotting I needed medical assistance and he had requested an ambulance crew to come and see me.
15mins later the ambulance crew arrived and didn't want to take any risks so took me to A&E Majors where I was assesed. 3.5hours later the Gyane Consultant came down to examine me internarlly and went through the sarnarios with me and before she examined me said if the Cervixs is open then she is sorry but I would have had a mc. They put those plastic duck beck things in but as there was to much blood and clots (sorry for TMI) had to have assistance from a another doc and a mopping up session in their. The mopping up proceeded and another internal examination took place where she conformed our worst fear that my cervixs seemed to be open and that she was awfully sorry but there is nothing they can do to prevent a mc.
When they took their instrument out of the cubicle me and my husband just looked at each other and burst out crying, we are not normally emotional people but the thought of a lose which was out of your control just gets to you, we hugged for abit, then ever the optimist my husband is, clung on to the fact that she did say "seemed to be open". As I had had a previous mc in Dec she said she would reffer me for a scan but if they discharge me it wouldn't be till Wednesday or if she admitted me on a ward an emergency scan would be arranged for sometime on Sunday. Of course I choose to be admitted (duh!!).
I was on the ward for about 1.5hours then the scan man was ready to see me, my bleeding by this time had reduced and I only had a tiny amount on my pad.
As I was 12 weeks he said he would try an ultra sound scan first instead of internal even though my bladder was empty, which I was relived at.
The ultra sound scan was clear enough for us to see, there it was our little squiggly Jelly bean baby........... prancing and jumping about with it's little heart fluttering away. We of course burst in to tears again and for some unknown reason I wanted to hug the scan man, I think I was over tired and over emotional but I didn't hug him I restrained, I just touched his arm.
He said he could see blood in my foo foo wall from my cervixs through the passage way but my placenta was in tact he couldn't even see why I would have lost the blood so it remains a mystery and he wasn't concerened.
I think it is going to be a girl as it is causing me grief all ready, my two boys pregnancy seemed a doddle compared to this monkey. Feel like I have had 10 rounds with Mike Tyson downstairs though now, very tender but releived all the same that is could of been a hell of a lot worse.
Felt bad on my husband as he was supposed to be going on a Supercar driving experience today which was xmas prezzie of our sons and they have said we can't get our money back if we cancelled. Gutted but it was out of our control, I will let him drive my Freelander if he is a good boy.
