Don’t say I didn’t warn you. This is a post D&C topic and if I were you, I wouldn’t read it.
The blood. Oh gawd. The blood. I stopped bleeding the first day and was just spotting a little bit. Now today, day 4 after the procedure, it’s out of control. Well, that’s an exaggeration, but still. I have really easy periods. Almost no cramping, light bleeding 3 days from start to finish.
Now I know what regular women feel like. I’m bleeding a lot and the cramps. Oh gawd, the cramps. I gave up on my idea of just taking ibuprofen today and took a Vicodin. Then I decided to take another Vicodin because it didn’t help. Now I’m waiting for it to kick in. Ouch. This sucks.
From what I’ve read online this is what happens when you don’t follow your doctor’s orders to “take it easy”. This is the only way the body has to tell you to sit down and chill. Not sure if that’s true or not. This might just be part of the process. Brandi? Any insight? Hushbear has put me on bed rest. Not sure how long he expects this to last or how he plans to enforce it.
I was planning on mailing most of my clothes up to Michigan before I go. I didn’t want to mess with a suitcase on the plane. I don’t check my bags because mine in particular get lost too often. I first planned it because of the hyperemesis, but now that the nausea is gone, it’s because of the procedure.
Even if I don’t send most of my clothes up, I need to mail the Christmas/birthday presents up. I guess I can get Hushbear to go mail the box off before he goes to work tomorrow.
I hope if I do just hang out in bed/on the couch for the next day or so the bleeding and cramping will stop.
I just want this to be over.
After Greta was born, I bled for six weeks. It got to be a bit horrifying.
I hope you feel better and stop bleeding soon. You deserve a happy Christmas!
