Pregnancy bleeding scare

Yesterday I could tell that my cervical fluid (CF) was more prominent.  My midwife said my leukocyte level was elevated, indicated by a urine test.  She told me to do a “wash” twice daily of warm water and apple cidar vinegar.  I ignored her since I was a bit confused on how to do this and because the yeast wasn’t bothering me.

However, yesterday afternoon I felt a trickle.  It wasn’t completely familiar – didn’t seem like blood but didn’t NOT seem like blood either.  My heart nearly stopped when I took a look at my pantiliner.  There was a streak/string of red blood in the CF!!  I tried to stay calm and called my midwife for guidance.  She said that some women will bleed from yeast infections and suggested that I buy some Yeast Guard and apple cidar vinegar.

Luckily it was the end of my work day, so I was able to get to the store and home before my DH and DD came home.  There was no more blood, but of course I’m checking my pants every few minutes anyway.  And I’m afraid to poop.

This is what a recent history of miscarriage has done to me.  At 10 weeks I was starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel of worry, and yesterday’s blood threw me right back into the tunnel.

Today I am exhausted.  Hardly functioning at work.  Thank goodness I’m done early again today.  It’s a good thing considering that my entire office is SHAKING from the construction outside.  It’s making me feel insane.

    i had some bleeding at 11 wks with my daughter and i was nervous for most of the rest of my pregnancy. had i known then what i know now, i would’ve seen a hypnotherapist to help me deal w/ the anxiety. (i’ve since seen one for other issues and she’s helped me tremendously.)
