Started bleeding about 430pm. Called my OB and it took FOREVER for someone from the office to get back to me. They told me to go on into the ER. Got a sitter for the other kids and off we went. Got Triaged right away but then sat in the lobby 2.5hrs. Finally got in the back and they did a pelvic exam & ultrasound. Dr said there was lots of brown (old) blood and little red blood. Possible Bacterial infection. Maybe had a mucous plug come undone. Ultrasound showed great heartbeat and the baby was doing somersaults in there. Kinda shocked the ER doc I think. Was sent home, to take it easy for a few days and to see my OB in 2wks (which I have my usual appt scheduled then).
Bleeding has stopped, no more brown blood. Been taking it easy and it gave me even more ammunition for my kids to help out more! I never had bleeding or spotting with any of the other 3.. Scared the crud outta me!
The worst part of the waiting in the lobby.. The TV showed the movie "Look Who's Talking"!!
Anyway.. Lets hope nothing like this happens again..
