Feeling in limbo, I mostly laid around and DREADED going to the bathroom. Everytime I did for two days it was a reminder of the bleeding. I put a post out on facebook asking for prayer. Soooo many people responded. I know some people say they also bled in their pregnancy. The reason I was scared was because bleeding was following the pain in my stomach. Like a cramping. That is a very bad sign and it was identical to my last experience.

Eventually I went to the ER with a heavy heart and prepared for the worst. They gave me an ultrasound to make sure the baby had a heart beat. Can you believe that when most people find out they are pregnant, there is already a heartbeat? I mean, I'm only 6 weeks and I saw that teeny little baby's heart beating on the screen. Wow. Even better, it was a good heart rate. They gave me another Rhogam shot since I was bleeding. Of course they sent me papers home about a possible miscarriage. Still, after seeing that heartbeat, I had hope.
My heart broke when I found out my high risk pregnancy doctor dropped me because she didn't feel I was high risk anymore. She said I've had lots of healthy babies and there was nothing to worry about. Well, I had to be off and running to now find a brand new doctor I've never had. Argh. I don't like this process because I've had a BAD one before that we almost took to court for some very bad things she did. I almost lost a baby at 28 weeks 5 years ago because of her negligence. I was scared in meeting a new one now.
I saw my new doctor today. Oh boy, what a type A personality she has which scared me right off the bat. I like successful people and all that are go getters but some can be rude without meaning to be. Or they come off as blunt. But she slowly won my heart over when she said "Oh, have as many babies as you want. That's your business and no one else's!" Ha. She's blunt all right. But she's great towards large family mamas which is what I needed. Funny enough, even though my other doctor dropped me, this doctor will be sending me to my old doctor for some visits and scans since I'm 35 years old and pregnant. So ha! My other doctor has me partially back. However, I was feeling a bit old as a pregnant mom being I have to go somewhere special because of my age.
I'm praying for a full term, healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. :) Would you please pray with me?
