Around 10 am it started. Bright red spotting. Try to remain calm, try to remain calm. I wasn't freaking out completely, as I know many women experience this, especially those on the Endomteriun, but when it happens to you, you are a mess. I called my dad. He told me it was probably fine, nothing to be concerned about, stay off my feet and drink plenty of water. Ok, that's easy enough.
My sister was over as we were supposed to go out shopping today to get her some new clothes. Obviously, our plans changed. Around 11 am, the spotting turned into two clots and I had some pretty intense AF like cramps. The tears instantly came along with the irrational thoughts. I called both my local RE and CCRM. I spoke with CCRM first. The nurse on call told me this happens in 70% of their patients. Unless the bleeding is enough to fill a pad (which mine isn't), it's ok. She told me to lie down and drink lots of water. She spoke to A. and reassured him, but I was still very worried. Around 1:30 pm my local RE called and gave me the same instructions and told me to come in for a BETA test tomorrow. This freaked me a bit.
So for the rest of today and tomorrow I will be lying around and taking it easy. The cramps come and go in waves, but the spotting/bleeding seems to be getting less and less.
I just really hope my pregnancy journey is not over. I was just starting to believe this could be real. Was I too optimistic too soon? Any words/stories of encouragement would be so appreciated.
