What a scare

I went over to my son in law's with my dad and the girls last night to help paint the nursery. I know it's a bit early but Heaven is so excited! She choose yellow and its really pretty. After the painting was done we all sat down to watch Biggest Loser. They have a dvr and had recorded last weeks and this weeks so we watched them both back to back.

Did I tell you I love that show?

The phone rings and its Heaven calling from work. She had started spotting and was scared. I tried to get her to come home but she only had another hour. She said it was dark and that it had stopped. I remember spotting a light tinge color with the girls but not as much as she was describing.

She came home and we talked until 1 am.

I got the girls home and in bed by 1:30 am.

I had Heaven call her family doctor this morning. (She doesn't have an OBGYN yet.) She explained what had happened. The doctor told her she felt she was fine but that if she started bleeding bright red to go to the ER. The doctor also took her out of work for the next week so Heaven does not have to finish her two week notice. I really think that pulling and lifting the elderly was too hard for her. Too much strain. I was so relieved that the doctor took her out. I was so uneasy about her working during this early time. She is under too much stress and has to go to school tomorrow all day.

I'm hoping now that she is going to be able to get some much needed rest. I took her out to lunch today, to pick up her doctor's excuse and then to work to drop it off.

If you think of us please keep her in your prayers. She will be going to the doctor soon. She still has some information to get to the insurance company first and she is really early. I'm thinking 5 or 6 weeks.

Thanks and God bless you!

My best friend who is in her third trimester had this happen. And she bleed until about 10-11 wks. But the baby was just fine thank God! I will be keeping dear Heaven and her little one in my prayers for sure!!!!!

With the lifting my doc said it was ok because I have a very physical job at a warehouse and I wanted to make sure that it was safe. But I'm with you.....I'll be praying that she can find some thing in her field but a bit easier on the pregnant body :)

Thank-you for the prayers Alicia!

I think (hope and pray) that Heaven will be able to NOT work and just go to school full time and be a mother. I don't foresee her being able to work, do school and be a mom.

Maybe the lifting part depends on how much you have to lift and if you know how to lift properly. Lifting people can be odd and hard. There has been several girls miscarry from the lifting at the nursing home and my sister in law hurt herself in her 4th month lifting and started bleeding and had to go to the ER. Thankfully everything turned out good. Heaven will do *more* than she should just because there is need, kwim?

Thanks for sharing that about your best friend. Heaven spotted again today, still small amount and dark brown. I did call the doctor and set up an appointment but that isn't until 11/18. They say her body is just cleansing and its fine. I'm praying so.

Hugs sweet friend. How are you?
