So, if you read my Eating and Drinking for Two post on Sunday, you will already know that I had a crazy, hormonal week last week. Well, I found out this morning that there’s an actual reason for it all:
I don’t know what to make of it! I think I am probably miscarrying. :/
I had a regular (heavy) period from March 11th-16th; it trailed off and ended completely by the 18th. And then on the 22nd I started having a lot of soreness in my lower abdomen and back. I had a headache and a tiny bit of spotting. The next day, I had even more discomfort and my breasts began hurting when Elizabeth would nurse. Usually this is a sign of ovulation for me (pain while breastfeeding), but never abdominal soreness/spotting. THEN, on Saturday, the 25th, I started bleeding. Like, period bleeding. Not spotting, or light pink – red. Sorry, I know that’s TMI.
Okay, so then on Sunday I was still having some bleeding, not super heavy, no cramping. But yesterday, I had super heavy flow as well as clotting.
Yikes, how can this be okay? lol
It all stopped last night, thankfully. But my nipples continue to be sore when breastfeeding. :(
Obviously I need to go to the doctor. What stinks is that I have no idea when my last period (before March 11th) was, and they always want to know. I guess they’d go straight for an ultrasound since this is so strange. I also don’t know when I could have conceived/how far along I am. We haven’t *ahem* since before the 11th.
Funny story…I had been googling this whole “second period” thing a few days ago and saw everyone recommending testing for pregnancy (which I found strange) so I had Stephen pick up a test yesterday at Publix. This morning, when I took it, I actually just dipped it and then walked away all nonchalantly, went and got my coffee, etc. When I came back, I couldn’t believe it was actually positive – I stood there staring at it like something was wrong with my vision! lol The ONE time I don’t watch the color come to the test!
So, I am not considering myself pregnant. I just can’t with the amount of bleeding I have had in the last two weeks. At this point, I am considering myself going through a miscarriage.
P.S. Isn’t it ironic that I’ve been doing an Eating and drinking for Two thing???? I was, in fact, eating and drinking for three! O_O
