I traveled for work this week...it was a busy, non-stop kind of day. When traveling (for work), I am used to going going going and not stopping to breathe until bedtime. However, I guess I now have to listen to my body. I purposefully packed light but I guess I still over did it.
I wasn't cramping or anything but by the time we had reached our staff outing that evening, I went to the bathroom and I had begun spotting. Yeah, spotting. I just sat there staring at the toilet paper like...why is there pink kool-aid on my t-paper? Yeah, pink. Not much but enough to throw a person into a panic. The next hour I kept going back to the bathroom and the spotting became brown. I was trying to think of what I could do? Who I could call? Just trying not to panic in front of my new co-workers and team! UGH. Stressful.
I emailed a new friend, "L" a L&D nurse and she gave me some good advice. I ended up calling my clinic on the after hours number. Dr. B was on call and he said that if it got worse tonight then go to the ER; however, I probably just overdid it with traveling and he told me just to take it easy. I continued to spot throughout the night and into the morning. It was a quick trip and I flew out early yesterday morning. I was so freaked out because I knew I had to make the trek back home!
I went the the bathroom regularly and by my 10 am bathroom run I had stopped spotting. Since I stopped spotting, my OB told me to take it easy for the rest of the day and to stay hydrated and if anything changed to call immediately. I had just been too active! CRAZY!
I am better today (mentally). I am still sore and achy from traveling. When I got home yesterday I broke out the doppler and heard the heartbeat just as strong as can be...I also felt him moving some yesterday so I felt better that too.
Anyway, pray this "spell" is over with. I don't ever want to go through that again!
