Firstly thank you to everyone for your notes and concern! I really thought my pregnancy was over when I saw all that blood.
So this is what happened - I woke up Saturday morning (NZ time) and did a few things then I went to the loo for a pee and looked down and saw red blood. I thought OMG, oh no, oh please no, not this time please. So my mum who was dropping by on her way home to Tauranga (which is about a 3 hour drive away) happened to arrive at that time so she took me to hospital as my DF was at work. We got to emergency and they put me in a bed and by that time my DF had arrived. They then took blood etc and said they were arranging for a portable ultrasound machine so they could scan me. We waited for ages and finally they wheeled the machine in. I swear I nearly had a heart attack from the anticipation of what I was going to see. I was sure the heart had stopped beating and that I was about to miscarry. As soon as she put the thig on my tummy I could see baby bouncing around and doing acrobatics. I cried my heart out with relief and then my mum joined in too, it was so nice to have her there. So after that I was feeling really relieved but then they wanted to check my cervix and was told it was a bit open. That made me worried all over again. They told me they were keeping me overnight to monitor me and that in the morning they would do another ultrasound on a proper machine to see if they could locate the cause of the bleed. So overnight the bleeding stopped and this morning they did the scan - baby was still bouncing around happy as. They couldn't see any reason for the bleed and discharged me and said for me to be on bed rest for the next few days.
I will ring the recurrent pregnancy loss clinic that I'm still under till 14 weeks tomorrow (Monday) and let them know what happened. I also have my NT scan coming up on Thursday so I will get to see baby again which is good. Thanks again to everyone - I really appreciate how caring you all are xxxxxx
