I am 26 weeks with my little girl, and we have a son turning 1 this weekend. Yesterday, I went through my normal morning routine, then discovered that I was bleeding. I was so scared I couldn't breathe as I called my husband home from work and we drove to the hospital. Hours later, after bring on monitors and not eating all day, we got the news that everything was fine, there was no sign of further bleeding, and we could go home. The baby is just fine and so am I. Has anyone had this happen to them? They didn't seem to know where the blood had come from, my cervix was closed, and everything inside seemed normal.
On a side note, we didn't have anyone to leave our son with, so we had to bring him with us. 4 hours in a tiny little hospital room, missing a nap and having only 1/2 the lunch he usually had, he was amazing! Every time a nurse or doctor came in they couldn't believe there was a baby in there, he was so quiet. He played with my husband and nibbled on snacks the whole time and was sooooo good, we couldn't believe it! It made it so much easier to have him being good. Could all the hours of taking him places and teaching him good behavior actually be working already? Can a 1 year old actually learn to behave himself in a public setting this early? I honestly don't know, since he is our first, whether he is good because his daddy is a very calm, gentle person, or because we are always taking him places and using positive reinforcement with him. P.S. I'm bragging on him,I know, but I'm so proud of him I could bust :)

I had bleeding with both of my pregnancies so I did some research. 80% of women do have a bleeding episode when pregnant. Sometimes, a tiny bit of the placenta separates and you get some blood.
Glad to hear that your son cooperated. (If you stay calm, often your kids will too.)
