Horrible scare

Karen123 - August 22

Hi everyone. I had a horrible, horrible scare yesterday. I was doing a few things around the house and all of a sudden had terrible cramps in my stomach. I got a phone call and right in the middle I felt blood. A lot of blood. I was absolutely hysterical, as you can imagine. I immediately called my daughter to come home since I was alone and she got me the # to the doctor. They said to come in right away. She drove me to meet with my husband who left work to rush me to the hospital where I go for infertility. Well, I had an u/s and both heartbeats were still going. I was crying hysterically the whole time and of course then was crying from relief. they have no explanation as to what happened but I am still terrified since I later went home and bled more. And since yesterday afternoon, I have been spotting non stop. I am so scared. Why did this have to happen? As far as I know my babies are ok and I am EXTREMELY grateful for that. but of course I am still SO afraid. I took today off work to rest but I did not stop the spotting. They said that if it gets worse I'll go back in but for now, I'm scheduled to go back in on Friday. If anyone has any time, I can use any prayers that I could get. I am just beside myself with worry. And by the way, while getting my u/s, the doc said that he is not sure but he thinks one of my babies may have split into an identical twin!! Can you believe it?? At this point, I'll be forever grateful for one baby....I just hope all is ok. Thank you for any prayers you could offer. I really appreciate talking to and hearing from all of you wonderful ladies.

Karen I am sorry you had such a scare! I am glad everything turned out ok!! I think how we are all pregnant and walking on egg shells. It took so much to get pregnant and the fear of something going wrong will haunt us till we give birth.

Karen, how scary! You posted you are still spotting. I hope that eases up today. Please stay off your feet until you have stopped. Maybe it was from the other egg splitting then attaching? I wish I had the answer. Please take care of yourself. cassandra

Karen 123 - What a scare and how scary it must still be if you are spotting. My sister said she did that with her 3 rd child and everything was ok. Doesnt make it less scary though. Identicals eh? how cool. My next u/s is thursday. Take care and keep in touch.

Thank you so much, all of you. Well, things got worse yesterday. I continued to spot but the doc said to just keep off my feet. My 16 year old daughter got into a horrible car accident that night. I am very grateful to say that she and her passengers are ok. If you could see her car, you would know that it was nothing short of a miracle that none of them died. I am extremely hurt that she had kids in the car (CT law is that she can't for 6 months after getting her license and she's only had it 2 weeks). But I am grateful that she is ok. I got the call at 11:00 last night when she was supposed to be home after a work function. We rushed to the hospital nearby to wait for the ambulance. Well, I collapsed from pain in my stomach and started bleeding heavier again. I was admitted and a few minutes later the EMT from the ambulance called to say that they couldn't fit my daughter there and they had to take her to a different hospital. So here I was, terrified for my daughter AND my unborn babies. It was the worst night of my life. I had a battery of worthless tests and was promised an u/s but they never gave me one. I kept in touch with my husband each hour who was at the other hospital with my daughter. I was crying for hours and in pain and terrified. Finally at 5:00 am, I was discharged and a little bit later my daughter was discharged with a clean bill of health. Today, I bled a bit more in the morning and cried some more. I gave my daughter an earful but hugged her hard knowing how lucky she was to be alive. Tonight, things are much better. All her friends are fine, she is fine - just pretty sore. Her car is a mangled mess and I truly do not know how anyone walked out of it. We are truly blessed. I was allowed to go back to the hospital I go for IVF and both my babies are fine. they only see 2 now and they see no damage to my uterus. Why I have been bleeding for 3 days is a mystery. I have been assured that my babies are fine and my daughter and her friends are fine and I am forever grateful. thank you for your prayers and nice words and thoughts. I have a lot to be thankful for despite the fact that I just endured the worst 3 days of my life. Karen

Sister, when it rains, it pours. Damn. You're about due for a dry spell, if you ask me!

I am SO sorry to hear about these past few days...and I will continue to pray for you, your husband, your daughter and your babies. God bless you, dear Karen - I will pray that all the bad is over and that you experience nothing but good from now on.

Now, go lie down with your feet up - you MORE than deserve it!!!

Keep us posted!!

I just read this whole thread and could not believe what I was reading. Bless you and your family. I will also pray that this craziness goes away and you get plenty of rest.

I am so thankful your family is o.k. We all know how fragile life is, and I know this must have been the biggest scare of your life.

Hang in there, lay in bed, have some bon bons and sleep the stress away.

Many hugs!
