On Tuesday, January 26 we had some issues. I sat down to eat my dinner and felt a lot of blood come out of me, then went to the bathroom where I could not leave because of the bleeding. I called my doctor and she had me go to the emergency room. We were so worried and scared for the babies and had no clue what was going on. I thought they were all gone, and just kept praying. They did bloodwork, and other test, then a long ultrasound. We had to wait forever for the doctors to read the ultrasound, and they wanted me to lay in the bed and rest and not get up for anything. Poor Matt had to sleep on this little bitty fold out bed thing they have, and my mom went home for the night. Finally at 7 Am my doctor came in with results and it looked like Baby "A" was having problems, that maybe her water had broke, or the placenta had a tear. So they ran more test that day, and at 1PM we had the High Risk Ultrasound with the UT doctors again. So scared!!!! Great results for the babies though. All the heartrates and placentas looked good. However, Baby "A", her placenta is sitting right next to and rubbing against my cervix. She needs to move upward in the Uterus. This is called Placenta Previa, and it's why I have been bleeding. When it rubs against the cervix it irritates it and I bleed. There is also a bloodclot behind the placenta which is where bleeding is also coming from, this should go away on it's own, slowly. I also have a bacteria infection that causes preterm labor. So they have me on medicine for that. I got released from the hospital on Thursday (they really had good food though, and all my nurses were so nice). I know what to lookout for and what blood is safe, and what's not. I'm now on Super Strict bedrest, to the bathroom and bed only. Cody, my baby dog, has not left my side. Matt is being a wonderful nurse, I feel so bad that he has to wait on me hand and foot. He brings me my breakfast every morning in bed, and fills up an ice chest for my lunch and snacks..then my Mom or Scott will be coming over to fix my dinner. It's going to be a long road, but I will do whatever it takes to keep the Triplets safe. I pray and pray to make it to week 28!! That will be April 15th. Only 77 more days to go. Please keep the babies in your prayers. We need them to hang on tight!!!!
