Wednesday Worries

First of I all I worry about my constant use of alliteration. But...I'm missing the point (procrastinating pontificating the point?) here.

So last night when I got home from work and went to the loo, there was a bit of blood. And then in subsequent trips, brownness. After one or two more trips, there was nothing, but again this morning there is a light, light brown substance. I know brown is ok, but it's still freaky. I'm hoping it was just the polyp on my cervix. I'd really like that to be gone the next time I go to the doc.

And making it more worrisome are these two different pains I'm having. One is in my abdomen, at a spot right between my belly button and my...self and it feels just like when you touch a bruise, except I don't need to touch it to feel it. It just kind of twinges on and off occasionally and whenever I sit down. If I had to guess, I've probably felt it 10-15 different times this morning. It's gone as quickly as it comes, but it's weird. It's definitely not a crampy feeling; bruise-like is the best way I can describe it.

Then the other pain is even stranger. Whenever I stand or sit I feel it in the ole vagine, like the bits are tender and so sensitive that standing and sitting are (mildly) painful. This could be the excess blood in my system, but again, it's weirding me out.

Anyone feel anything twinges like these? Also, for those who've had a polyp removed from their cervix, what was the process? I had one in my uterus, and had a hysteroscopy, but I'm thinking (hoping) that being closer to the exit, this one could be slightly easier to get rid of? My ob wants to leave it, but it's kind of stressing me out. If the procedure is minor, I'm considering getting rid of it.

I'm sorry that I have nothing for you except I really hope it is nothing.

I'd say that it's probably not a good idea to mess around with anything attached to your cervix, especially if it's in the os or canal until after delivery.

One of the pains you describe may be round ligament pain, a ligament tha runs from the uterus and anchors somewhere around the labia, it's pretty common. So are lots of odd twinges and pains that never really get pinned down.

I hope whatever it is is minor.

Call your ob - it never hurts to check in when you're unsure

Sending good thoughts and love your way!

I've never had a polyp, but I did want to tell you that I'll be thinking about you and hoping that you feel better soon!

My assvice would be to leave the polyp alone until after the WT's make their debut. I wouldn't want to do anything to piss them off and bring on an early arrival.

Hope by this point in the night it's all cleared up but if you're worried, call your doc. Who knows, maybe you'll get to sneak a peak at the wonder twins again.

My friend had a lot of spotting in the early days of her pregnancy and all was fine. I am no expert but I have my fingers crossed for you.

Please can you help me with a question? When did you stop taking DHEA was it on egg collection day? Did you take it during the 2ww? Hope you can help, drop me a comment if you can.

Take care

I hope these pains are nothing as well....but it can't hurt to call your doctor. I would have already been on the phone with him/her if I were you (I am a total hypochandriac, so I know I will be calling all the time when I get preggo)! I agree with some other comments, I would leave the polyp alone until after the WT arrive, just to be safe. As long as the polyp isn't hurting them, it is probably best to just wait.

Scary. I have no assvice but I hope the spotting goes away pronto.

I wish i had something clever to share, but obviously I'm lacking experience in this area. Just wanted to let you know that I'm thinking of you and wishing you uneventful months to come.

I also wanted to thank you for coming over to my blog to share your kind words. It meant so much to me.

I've had very similar feelings! I've also had a polyp removed from my cervix. It was no biggie after all we have been through. Very minor cramping for a few minutes, then nothing. A little bleeding. Good luck!
