So dh is very worried about me, so much that he called his Mom last night to tell her what was going on. His mother told him, "Oh, I had that, tell Kristen it's not a big deal." Well Brent had talked to his Dad too and his Dad had told Brent how one night his Mom woke up in a puddle of blood. He told Brent how scary it was to watch his wife bleeding out and rushing her to the hospital. Brent's mom had only been concerned about her baby, my husband, never thought about herself. She called again this morning to say she would pray, she hadn't ever realized how dangerous it really was for her.
This was 30 some years ago and ultrasound was a brand new thing, at least here. She was one of the very first women here in the city to have one. They did get her bleeding under control and kept her in the hospital for a few weeks and sent her back home. By the time she went in to labour, at about 34 weeks, the placenta had moved out of the way enough for a vaginal birth. My dh was a bit early and had a few issues, but they were both okay in the end.
Good stuff to know, I vaguely remember her talking about it before, but honestly never gave it much thought. I am sure glad that they were both okay-I kinda like the guy...
Oh, Happy Mother's Day to you all, I will be thinking of you. And thank you so much for all your kindness, support and prayers. I appreciate them more than you could ever know.
I will be gone til Monday as I am going to my mom's for the weekend, my sister is having her University graduation! I am so proud of her.
