Don’t scare me like this

I was spotting when I woke up this morning.

The very reassuring and sweet nurse I spoke to on the phone was keen to point out this can happen in early pregnancy and usually means nothing. I am to call back if the cramps get any worse (they’re about the same as I’ve been having all week) or the bleeding increases or turns red. Meanwhile, I am to take it easy.

I have an exam on Monday, and I had planned to spend the weekend revising for it. I now have the attention span of a goldfish on cocaine and I keep needing to stop for a cuddle and a little weep.

Pikaia, beloved, if this is a false alarm, your timing sucks and you are so grounded.

    Oh, how stressful! I wish you the speediest, snuggliest restful weekend.

    Sending you peaceful, relaxing thoughts …

    Have I congratulated yet??? Oh ignore my absent mindedness if I have already if not CONGRATS!

    Hoping all goes well for you. My sis in law bled in early pregnancy and her daughter was fine.

    Oh, my…

    I will pray that all is well.

    And I’ll also pray that you’ll be able to concentrate enough to study for your exam. (It took me a couple of reads to realize that “revising” is equivalent to “studying.” šŸ™‚ )

    Hugs and prayers to you…

    I’ll keep you in my thoughts. Be advised (and no doubt you know this as an avid blog reader) that a lot of people experience some bleeding early on.

    May the bleeding stop so you don’t have to worry…any more than you would usually anyway.

    Crap. My Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year book is at work.
    All I can remember – Red Raspberry tea (uterine tonic) and False Unicorn Root -indicated to prevent threatened miscarriage and ease vomiting associated with pregnancy.

    Nothing much I can say except don’t do anything strenuous, and have lots of cuddles.
