Oh Jess, I'm so sorry about the stress and the bleeding. Look I know you didn't want to get any help in to pack or move, but please think about it.
I had a professional organizer in before our move, to help me throw out stuff and stage the house nicely. I was pregnant then too, and holy did it help.
Just lie there and gestate...and take care. I'm sending you giant cyber-hugs all day today!

Ugh, just when you were getting comfortable... I had bleeding at 30-something weeks and no matter when it happens it is scary. Make them scan you again this week. Good luck, J.


Oh, I feel for you. I had bleeding that turned out to be the edge of the placenta...but I was nearly to term. Take it easy, and I like Aurelia's suggestion - get help! Good luck.


That must have been really scary. I'm glad they did a thorough u/s. What a relief! I hope everything goes well for you for the rest of the pregnancy. I'm almost 30 weeks pregnant w/ our 2nd child. I had spotting/bleeding for about a month from the time I found out I was pregnant. I think I had 3 u/s by my 9th week appt. Then it went away. You never stop worrying until their born. I have rented a doppler since I found out I was pregnant. I get overly worried b/c my 1st pregnancy ended in m/c. I highly recommend renting one.


Oh, you must have been so worried. I hope you have no more scares. I had a ton of bleeding at six weeks that had me convinced I had lost the pregnancy and it turned out to have been nothing. Bodies are weird, and pregnancy is so worrisome! I hope things are totally boring here on out.


Hang in there--I'm sending good thoughts your way. Glad they were thorough!


A bleed is terrifying. Terrifying.

I had a big bleed right at the start of the second trimester. Turned out to be a one-time thing.

I really, really hope ths is the only scare for you: I hope the rest is totally smooth sailing.
