Well, I had yet another bleed last night. Not quite as bad as the others - ut red blood nonetheless. The OB checked me cervix today to rule out that there might be a polyp or something on the outside of the cervix causing the bleeding. There was nothing unusual there, so he feels confident that i have a small tear in my placenta that is causing the bleeding.
On the bright side, he could see that my mucous plug was still intact and even though some of the docs had said that i was 1.5cm dilated, my OB said that my cervix is still firmly closed.
So.... what does this all mean? It means that I get to hang out here at the hospital for the next 10 days or so. The doctor says that as long as he feels that the baby is safe inside me that we can just play it by ear. was chatting with one of the nurses and asked if they would try to rush me out of here, and she said definitely not. she said that the best place for the baby is inside me a this point, and that until the baby is 36 weeks, they will try to keep him there.
That's it for now... more taking it easy at the hospital... it's kindof like an all inclusive resort - minus the swimming pool and the sunshine!
