....and I am the alien. This is not JJ and not even Mook. My name is Bee Cee and I have kidnapped JJ’s blog for the day. Some of you may know me but most of you don’t. I can be found here, on my blog, on most days, but for today, I am privileged and honoured to be writing for the Reproductive Jeans family.
JJ asked me to update you all as there has been a lot going on recently in her special corner of the world.
Ok before I start, you may need a cup of coffee, a glass of wine, but most of all a big fat listening ear...and get ready because there’s a quiz at the end that you all have to answer, as JJ needs your help.
Here we go....
For the 4th of July weekend, Mook and JJ packed their bags and headed for the beach with JJ’s family. She arranged to have Monday as holiday too so it was a nice long weekend break away from work.
All was going swimmingly until Sunday night. She had two gushes of blood and was rushed to the ER. This was made worse by the fact she was miles away from home but she had all her family with her which was a comfort. I don’t think it is an understatement to say that JJ thought it was all over at this point.
She spent most of the night in the ER. They did an ultrasound, pelvic exam and blood culture. The great bit was she got to see Ron! It was amazing I am sure. The ultrasound lady couldn’t see any free fluid or blood but did see JJ’s cysts and what she ‘thought’ was a fibroid. The outcome was that the pelvic exam didn’t throw up any answers and her cervix was closed so the doctor sent her packing after concluding that it was an old blood pocket.
They stayed at the beach until Monday afternoon and then headed home. When JJ got home she went to the restroom and was horrified to see even more blood. A nightmare restless night followed with nothing else to do but wait until her clinic opened in the morning. I can’t imagine what was going through her head this time, just awful. She described it as the “longest night of her life”.
Tuesday morning brought a visit to the clinic. Hearts must have been racing at this point but JJ’s nurse looked after her so well and arranged for an ultrasound and blood work straight away. There was another racing heartbeat next, and it wasn’t JJ’s or Mook’s, it was Ron’s at 5w 6d!! Fantastic.
Then the scan showed a large “something”. That something turns out to be a Subchorionic Hemorrhage. The good news was that it wasn’t attached to the sack, but it is very very close so obviously is a worry. JJ says it will either dissolve or come out by itself; I am rooting for the former.
She is on strict bedrest until at least Friday when the next scan happens and then another on Monday. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed for her and Mook and Ron. She is bearing up well, naturally scared but just hoping it will all resolve itself soon.
So now for the quiz....have any of you got words of wisdom relating to Subchorionic Hemorrhages? Any happy ever after stories are gratefully received. Words of comfort are welcome too, as she will be reading this from her bed.
Well, thanks for listening all, I have been Bee Cee your Reproductive Jeans guest blogger, I hope to be back one day, but next time I hope it will be with better news.
