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.
