Pregnancy: The Ever Unpredictable State

I started to learn around 4 months that I couldn't predict what pregancy would be like for me, and that I couldn't compare my pregancy to anyone elses. I also started to get used to Doctors telling me "Sorry, I've never seen this before. I don't know what to tell you". So, I don't know why I was so surprised that I ended up back in the hospital with another unexplained problem.

The funny thing is that I thought I was going into labor - I was positive. (This was Saturday) I had been having contractions all day, and they were more painful and frequent than I was used to, but still no discernable pattern. And then I went to the bathroom and there was blood in the toilet. I assumed this was my "bloody show" and I was on my way towards labor - it all made sense to me.

Anyway, to make a long story as short as I can. I'm just peeing blood. I haven't progressed, so the increase in contractions and pain doesn't mean much, and they can't tell me why there is blood or where it is coming from. There is a possibility of a kidney infection, but all the tests they ran were inconclusive - obviously.

So, I'm just hanging out - not in labor - waiting for something to happen. I'll see my Doctor in 2 hours, and he's going to tell me if there is any more news on my mystery infection and strip my membranes. We'll see how that goes.

Scary and frustrating. I think that the worst thing is to go into a doctor's office and they do not know what is wrong with you.

If I had a choice between the doctor not knowing what was wrong, and knowing, but it was something awful, I might choose awful knowledge over nothing. At least I would have something to study or heal or fix. But inconclusive-that is hard...especially when new life is in the mix.

I am so sorry.

My heart goes out to you. The last few days are so hard and then add the "not knowing" of the doctor and it just multiplies things. We are praying for you.

Dang... all I care about is winning my guess at the shower of when you'd deliver. Hope I'm close at least.
