August 27th- 18 weeks 5 days

So the 3 weeks leading up to this date had been much better. I was now working 2 days a week from home to help with gettting more rest. However on this day that all changed.

I woke up around 1 am to more blood. Lots more. Of course all I could do was pray and know that it is out of my hands and give over this journey to God. Whatever our path is he would have to help us through this because it was more than I could handle on my own. I look back at that night and was actually pretty calm, believe it or not. I knew I couldn't freak out or cry because then I would really lose it. Vic and I were headed to Labor and Delivery. Once there they hooked me up to monitors and since I was over 18 weeks I didn't have to go to the emergency. After they monitored me for a while they told us that I was also having contractions. I was given 3 shots to stop them and an exam was performed. Now the good news was that I wasn't dilated or anything crazy like that, so labor had not begun. I was put on bedrest for another week and told to follow up with my doctor. I was also prescribed meds by my doctor, since they were in contact with him, that I would have to take every 6 hours for contractions.

I did have one more visit to Labor and Delivery on August 31st but all was ok.
