Hopefully just a blip....

I was already nervous about this week. I am 24+3 and it is an OB-only, non-ultrasound week. I have been contracting a little. But nothing regular or painful.

So I had a speculum exam and my OB discovered some bleeding around the stitch. It was not enough to even cause a discharge. He applied a solution-- um, which I foolishly forgot to ask the purpose. My assumption would be it is a kind of antiseptic to keep away infection. He felt, from the manual exam, that I seemed to be holding up otherwise.

So my instructions are the usual. Call with bleeding or more than 6 contractions and hour. I am a little unnerved, but trying to hold it together. I have 1 week to go till another u/s. I am just going to try to take it easy.

I am hoping that this is just a blip as well. Nothing is ever completely smooth sailing, huh? Seems like it should be after you reach your fair share of blips or bumps. I say you've had your share.

By the time I'm writing this you're close to your next appointment which I hope is a great one! How's the little D man doing? ((hugs))
