So I Guess It's Starting... Relieved and Sad

So this morning as I went to sit up in bed my sides had an intense sharp pain which lasted for about a minute. Then off and on today I have been having cramping and spotting. Now my stomach is starting to REALLY cramp up and I'm so glad my dh is coming home from work soon and that there was no school for the kids today or tomorrow. However I think I will have to send my dh to my daughter's school conference that I was looking forward to (she's been struggling but has shown lots of improvement-or at least I think). I was planning on taking her out for a treat afterwards but now that just isn't going to happen.


About a week ago I had a little bit of spotting (from pushing #2-tmi sorry) and I thought that was it but then nothing. So I didn't really take it serious when I saw some spotting this morning. But now that the spotting has been going on all day and the cramps are becoming more intense I finally think it is happening.

I guess I am relieved to have it starting and knowing that it will all be over soon enough. But at the same time I am very sad and heartbroken but trying to keep myself together in front of the kids and my daycare (school aged) children (no school so they are here all day today and tomorrow).

Just wanted to give an update and to say thank you so much to the supportive ladies of this message board. You've really helped me get through these past few weeks and while I may not post much I do read a lot of the threads and have all of your ladies in my thoughts and prayers.

Karen
