Last night I had a scare that I thought for sure baby was coming or something. I have been having dizzy spells, palpitations, racing heart, nausea, fainting, contractions, pressure, severe spd, starts of uti, headaches and more.. but y esterday baby was not moving much if at all, I chalked it up to nothing as it could be nothing.. well I was playing with my infant, wrestling and more. Ya bad bad, but hes such a cutie and I cant help but embrace his giggles and just make him happy. I put him on my head and was rubbing his belly on my head, it hurt so I put him down. I went to get up and felt funny, I chalked it up to nothing again, just strain from him. Hes 18 pounds roughly and 10 almost 11 months old. I changed him and put him in his crib. as I placed him in his crib I felt what felt like a ball come out. I thought was air, as I do have air build up in my VJ, how idk. lol So I had an urge to pee, on way out of my room so I went ot the bathroom, it was indeed some goop, like a mucus plug. I haven't seen that in years.. So I went pee and I wiped. I had blood. I was scared. I immediately called DH to get home and we were going in. Baby still wasn't moving so that rose even more concern even with eating. Well we get minutes away from the hospital and guess who kicks, yep baby. So a sigh of relief sort of. the nurse was like you know shes moving and very active, its ok. And calmed me. but that didn't work. I wanted to know I wasn't bleeding anymore. I refused to go to the bathroom. The nurse said she will need a sample. so I said I will go when Im getting my cervical check. That was an hour later LOL I had a few contractions that weren't bad on the monitor and not regular, so they said that's normal for a woman like me with so many pregnancies and stuff. So we get unhooked and I go to the bathroom and I didn't look. I did my thing. Got in the exam room and she says she cant see anything. I have cysts on my cervix and what could be enlarged veins, guess that could be wehre the bleeding came from. She then said she will do a manual internal check. Which shocked me considering how I explained things went. Well she says Im soft (cervix) closed, baby is low but my cervix about 2 cm long. I thought that was rather short. SHe again said cus I had so many it is the reason. But I wasn't buying into it. I was upset and we left. Starving cus I have my glucose test. I go and get it done this morning. To feel so faint, I had to lay down half way through the test. I napped a bit then finished off the test. I get home and get very sleepy again. My infant was due for a nap, the older kids were out at school and my toddler at preschool, I had just the 2 year old up.. so we lounged on the couch. I slept almost 2 hours. Guess I ws tired. I have part of my screening test today. I have low hemoglobin and low hematocrit and low ferritin. So I guess Im anemic.. I am waiting on the rest of the results. Curious what this has in store for me. But now my problem free pregnancy is now scaring me and I pray pray pray I make it to term.

what a crummy day! I'm glad she started moving again and hope you start feeling better. Any chance you can get in to see our regular OB to discuss everything?

I am glad that nothing serious was going on! But a 2 cm cervix is pretty short at this phase, though only an ultrasound can really measure that accurately. I would definitely bring it up with your OB.

I am sorry you're dealing with so much! I hope it all settles down for you!

That would be a scary day! I'm glad she started moving around again. I agree that you should mention a lot of this to your OB, especially the shorter cervix.

I hope you feel better!

I got my glucose test back and I failed. I have to speak to my OB June 12 about getting a referral to a diabetes dr.

Oh wow. You have a lot going on! I am so glad baby is okay, and you as well. I have no clue what happens if you fail the test except that you get put on a diet, but I hope the rest of your pregnancy is worry free and relaxing. I know it hasn't been easy for you at all but i hope things get better!

Sorry you're having a rough time. Sending the T's and P's your way that things calm down for you. It makes it hard to enjoy a pregnancy when there is always something to worry about
