We are all okay now. But what a horrible weekend! I was getting ready for work on Saturday morning I had just put in my 2 prometrium suppositories and my estrace, I was doing my hair and I felt a 'pop' and then a little gush. I was cursing my way to the master bathroom bitching about the suppositories and the mess they make when lo behold it was not progesterone oil, but blood. And not a little bit but a lot. It was pouring out of me.
After JD got himself together, we immediately left for the Emergency Room. Our Hospital was quite wonderful with us. They really rushed to get us a bed and they made sure we had our own room with a bathroom. It took almost 4 hours to get an u/s done though due to staffing issues. The tech was able to find the heartbeats. Baby A was 6wk6dys and Baby B was still 6 wk3dys, but they were there and still had heartbeats.
Honestly I have no idea how it is possible, considering how much blood I lost, but I take solace in the positive ultra sound. What they did find was that I have a Sub Chronic Hematoma. It is a tear (blood clot) in the lining under the placenta that bursts. The ER doctor assured us that it is far away from the babies and that they are fine.
I have been on bed rest since being released on Saturday. I'm not bleeding (fresh) anymore, but I am still bleeding. To say that we are terrified is an understatement. I am having another ultrasound on Thursday to make sure everyone is okay. I pray with everything that I have that they are still there hanging in. And I pray with all my heart that Baby B starts catching up.
Please pray for us that this SCH heals itself soon. And please pray that both these babies keep growing and getting stronger.
