The First Scare of the Pregnancy

Woke up to some bleeding this morning.  No not the expected brownish red but the scary bright red kind.  I've been getting sharp pains for the past week in my pelvis.

When I move it is like something inside my pelvis doesn't want to move with me.  When I stretch I get an immediate pain that makes me curl back up and whimper.

I called PNW and spoke to my nurse Nicole.  She sent a fax to Madigan clinic and wanted me to be seen today.  They then decided that Monday would most likely be better since at this point in the pregnancy seeing a gestational sac might be difficult.  However, Monday Madigan is all booked up so it will have to wait and hopefully I can get in to see them on Tuesday.

If the pain and bleeding get worse I'll go to the ER.  I'm allowed to take Tylenol for now and I'm on pelvic rest.  Not the in bed type pelvic rest but the no jumping around or sex pelvic rest.  I've been avoiding sex since the transfer to ensure I wouldn't have the bleeding that I'm now having.  Thankfully the bleeding has haulted for now.  We'll see what Tuesday brings.

I called the Madigan RE office and left a message that I'd like an appointment for Tuesday.  Hoping they'll call me back.  Wishing I had the magic phone number that PNW has to get in touch with Madigan so quickly.  You know, the number that always comes up as unlisted or just incoming call when your own doctor calls!

  5. I hope that everything is ok. Are you on progesterone support? Sometimes that can lead to scary bleeds. I hope that this the last scare you get. Fingers crossed still!

  6. Its really common to have bleeding early on in IVF pregnancies, but of course its worrying. Hoping it stops and you get a clean bill of health on Tue.

  7. Hi there, just stopping by form ICLW. Congrats on being pregnant! Fingers crossed all is well and goes smoothly after this minor hurdle. Not to scare you but I would caution you to definitely go to the ER if the pain gets bad. Having had two ectopics my brain tends to jump to that.

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Oh my goodness, I'm so happy for you about the pregnancy. I am sorry that you are in this scary early stage. I know all too well the anxiety of early bleeding and pain. I have had it leading to miscarriage but I have also had it lead to a perfect baby boy. Praying you can stay hopeful and that this is just the bubba settling in and making his or her presence known. Hugs to you, mama and I look forward to following your story.
