Mama's Intuition

When I imagined announcing my second pregnancy, I pictured it to be all rainbows and butterflies.
Congrats and best wishes all around.
A little boy, with a Big Brother book.
Instead, within an hour of sharing our news with the Instagram world, my world came crashing down.
36 hours after seeing our baby bouncing around, hearing a heartbeat, putting my mind at ease, I saw what no pregnant woman wants to see.
Bright red.
I immediately called to my husband that something was wrong.
I needed to call someone.
The on-call doctor did not seem overly concerned.
He tried to assure me that bleeding in early pregnancy can be "normal."
That we saw a strong heartbeat just the day before and that's a great sign
I'm trying to put my faith in that.
But I can't shake this bad vibe that something is not right.
I can't shake my gut feeling that there's nothing normal about this.
For now I feel like I'm in limbo until I can get more answers tomorrow. 
Praying that everything is just fine.
Hoping my mama's intuition is wrong.

I missed the Instagram announcement until after I read your post but I sincerely hope everything is just fine! You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers!

I wish that just by saying "just relax, i'm sure it's fine, God's in control" etc etc etc, that you could be completely relaxed tonight... but i realize that you are going to be nervous no matter what :( So I will just say -- I am hoping so hard that your intuition is just plain WRONG and that baby is doing just fine in there! Hang tough mama! Know that there are a lot of us out here thinking about and praying for you guys

Oh praying! So scary... I hope you get good news soon that your sweet little one is healthy and growing away. With my first I had bleeding and I was sick at the thought of what it might mean. My little guy is now 15 months! Praying for peace & good news!

I know you will hear this a lot but I had ZERO bleeding with my first two and the same BRIGHT red blood when I was in first tri with the 3rd . I just knew that was the end, it was horrible. When I went in for the ultrasound I had already convinced myself it was over. It had to have been, there was too much blood. It was actually a
Hematoma. She is now 16 months old. There is hope, but I know it is hard to believe it.
