Well, we had our first scare as parents to be last night! I was in some pain all day and at night I had some very slight bleeding. So, I called the on-call doctor and since the bleeding had stopped he decided that I didn't need to go in, but told me to make sure to be seen this morning first thing. So, that's what we did. It appears that my placenta may be partially covering the cervix and since we have such an active little guy in there, he's practically competing in the olympic games right on my placenta. Basically, this is what she thinks caused the bleeding. I have another ultrasound tomorrow to confirm how much of the cervix is being covered. At that point they will decide if I need to be on pelvic rest (no lovin', exercise, or lifting, and only moderate amounts of walking) or bedrest (can't do ANYTHING) or if I can just proceed as normal and continue to just be aware. I'm obviously hoping for the later of the three options and I'll make sure to keep you posted!
