Pregnancy Pregnancy

Scared out of my mind, I thought I was going to lose my lil man :(

 So Saturday was my baby shower which was exactly how I wanted it to go. Everything came out awesome. I went to bed and everything was fine. I wasn't even tired or anything. I got up at 4am to use the rest room, like I always do and checked the toilet. I didn't expect to see a huge blood clot since I am only 33w along so I totally freaked out. I went and woke my husband up and told him what was going on. We called the ambulance and they came and checked my vitals. I then began to feel what was menstrual cramps which I have always felt through out my pregnancy but they were not that close together and usually went away after about 2 or 3 cramps. I was able to keep my cool until I was in the ambulance on the way. I got really scared that I might lose my baby. I didn't care what I was going through just as long as he was going to be okay. I could feel him moving around which reassured me that he was still alive at least. I felt so much better when they hooked the heart monitor to my belly and I was able to hear his heart beating. The nurse said that I was having contractions 3-4 min apart so she checked my cervix and found that I was actually 1.5cm dilated. The blood that I saw they said was my mucus plug that I had lost. They gave me meds to stop the labor process which worked for a while but they needed to administer another does. After the 2nd one things seemed to be calming down. I was still bleeding which they said should go away after a couple of days. Today I have to make an appointment with my doctor today to get a swab test to check the hormone levels. They will also check to make sure that I have not dilated more then yesterday. What a morning I had. I hope that all goes good at my appointment today and that I can keep going until my due date 1/5/2012.
