My Crazy Life
I’m guessing a few people might have noticed my absence from the bloggoshere recently. As many of you know I recently shared that my husband and I are expecting an unexpected bundle of joy sometime in July.
Some bloggers are really good about coming on and explaining things to their readers…I am not one of those bloggers. I had some health issues and instead of coming and talking about them, I just vanished.
Our recent scare was a biggie. My daughters were at their dance rehearsal for their winter show and I began to hemorrhage. Not just the spotting I had with one of my other pregnancies. Forgive the graphic description, but there was lots of bright red blood and clots. I thought for sure I was losing the baby and I was really upset.
My good ‘ol husband got to me faster than I think an ambulance would have and rushed me to the ER, which fortunately was fairly close. My shock came when they finally did the ultrasound and lo and behold…there was a little heart still beating in there!
It turns out I had a cyst on my ovary that ruptured in addition to having what is called a subchorionic hematoma. I had no idea what that actually was, other than the hematoma part, so the best definition and simplest explanation is that I have a blood clot in my uterus along with a baby. It could cause lots of problems, and it could cause none. Some dissolve on their own, and others bleed out and cause problems.
So right now it is a waiting game. I am off of bedrest, but still strongly cautioned to “take it easy”. I feel okay, apart from the other more ‘normal’ pregnancy complaints. I still have a bit of cramping and spotting, but the doctors say baby is healthy and fine so far. They have done more ultrasounds to confirm and every time the baby looks fine.
So hopefully you will all excuse my brief absence. It was and still is a bit crazy for me right now. I might be slowing my blogging down A LOT. If I don’t come by to see you at your blog as often as I used to…please don’t take it personally. I’m slowing catching up. I had to dump all of my unread blog posts on Google Reader as there were some 3000 new posts. The task was too daunting to even attempt to conquer.
Oh! The girls did have their dance show and I DID get to go and watch. I got a few pics of my youngest (well…someone got some pics of my youngest) which I will share will you. I will have to scavenge for some pics of my older daughter, Kaylee. She was on reaaaaaaaaally late, in the second show because she is a “big girl” now. 🙂
For some reason I seem to not have a pic of her in her competition jazz dance either. I will look and post them with Kaylee’s.
