I have been having a spot of bother.
It started on Saturday night. I had a feeling like… something has happened in my nether regions. And.. after being totally blood free for seven weeks.. there it was. Brown and spotty blood.
I went straight to bed. Paranoid.
I phoned my mom. (She is a doctor) She said not to worry (because it was brown and not little, if it was red and lots then worry..).
I emailed Hanlie. My trusty nurse at my fertility clinic office. My super soft injector. (I’m still going for Intragam injections once a week).
Now she had a totally different theory. She said that it could be a side effect of the Ecotrin. She says it is a quarter disprin and thins the blood. This ensures that there is no resistance flowing to the baby. Once you experience spotting the body is communicating that the blood is now thin enough. She suggested that I stop the pill and then only start again once it stopped. Which I did. And it worked. No more spots. For two days. So here’s hoping they stay away.
I’ve also had a look at Google. I can’t help it. I’m just curious. It seems that spotting is common, and the little brown kind is ok. So I feel a bit better about it.
But I am sure looking forward to Friday’s 8 week scan. I’ll feel a whole lot better knowing PB is ok. (PB is the affectionate term B and I have used to name our child. If you put Pinky Bunny and Blue Bear together you get a Purple Bear)
Until then I am doing a lot of praying. I have been given this most amazing gift from a dear friend “Praying for your Unborn Child”. Not only does it also go through what developmental stages to pray for at each month, it also gives an overview for each trimester. I particularly liked the section “freedom from negative forces”. You can actually pray for your child to be free from any hereditary diseases, spiritual or physical. So I did this and also prayed for good health, both mentally and physically. I’ve actually been very slack at praying for a long time, but now I have a good reason to get back into it.
Oh and I want to say a big thank you to the people who commented on my story at Circle and Bloom. I was really and completely touched. You guys are so special.
