quick update

All is well, no blood since saturday, but sheesh-

So sorry babysteps to hear of your scares too-- that simply sucks.
Yes my placenta is still very low and I have vasa previa which is scary but we'll look again next tuesday to see if anything moved--

Definitely the blood was from the bad/scary place not the back door, BUT (ha, I make myself laugh) I think it is most likely due to my very vascular-ly active state plus some skin irritation.....

Any little scratch bleeds like hell these days.

Contractions every 20 minutes yesterday had me on alert, but they've calmed down and never triggered the 5/hour alarm so.... I guess this is all just one big morass of constant vigilance, TP checking, and trying to be calm.

I had a wonderful day yesterday with baby movement, just exactly as often as I needed them (thank you baby!) and picked up a 70 year old bassinet that has been in the family for that many generations. Weird to see such tangible evidence of impending baby-ness.

Week 29, praise the gods/goddess/all-that-is.

Thank you all for your immense kindness. This is just so scary. HUMBLING.
Hot damn.

SUCH a relief that everything's ok. Thinking of you, my dear (and loved the belly photo, even though I don't think my comment went through at the time.) You look fantastic, and I can't wait to meet your little one!

I am so glad it stopped. I know how scary it is. So are contractions. But now that you are 29 weeks, the baby is very viable. Just breathe!!! And I know how thankful you are for baby movements.

Glad to hear you're doing well now! I've been lurking for a long time, feeling a part of this community without being "visible". Your blog (and others) has been a real support for me in my own TTC process. I wanted to send you an email but couldn't find any contact info.
I'm the same age as you & after a year of IUIs I'm moving on to IVF. Would you mind if I asked you a few questions about your experience?
