I started bleeding this afternoon, bright red. I went to the washroom before heading home on the bus. When I looked I saw a lot of red blood in the toilet. No, no, no! When I wiped I could tell it was not related to a hemorrhoid because it was coming from my vagina. Lovely. I know I wasn't constipated but pushed a little too much so I thought maybe it was from a broken blood vessel in my cervix since there is a lot going on in there right now.
The bleeding stopped on my way home and I had only a little spotting on my liner. I didn't have any more bleeding but tonight I did have a mass of brown CM come out. I'm crossing my fingers the bleeding, whatever the cause, is over. I am not ready for this pregnancy to be over at 9w6d.
I haven't been experiencing any cramping beyond what I've been feeling the past few weeks. I think the pain I've been feeling today is a continuation of typical growing pains. Although, I am feeling something deeper that might be vaginal but I get that the odd time when not pregnant too so that isn't a good measurement to go by.
I have an u/s scheduled for Tuesday morning. My NP wanted me to get an initial one as a 'dating' scan ... she knows full well that I was at the fertility clinic and I know my dates. But she saw nothing wrong with doing that and then another one for the NT scan in just a few weeks. She even said I could set that up right there on my appointment day. Then I saw the OB the next day and he said I didn't need the dating scan and to cancel the dating scan and book the NT scan. I debated that one and decided I wasn't going to cancel it. I know there are concerns about getting too many u/s during pregnancy but I seriously doubt that one extra one is going to do any harm. Plus, I really want to get it done now. If I make it to Tuesday I just want reassurances that there is something in there and things are still fine. And if they can locate anything that indicates where this bleeding might have come from (SCH, low lying placenta, etc.) then I want to know.
Ugh, this weekend is going to drag by so slowly.
