Wow, last night was panic time. The tiniest bit of old blood, and I was certain something was wrong. However, upon calling the healthcare hotline, I was assured this was perfectly normal, and this morning my GP sent me off to the hospital for a "just-in-case" injection of anti-D. Aidan (who was on duty, in uniform, armed, etc) came to collect me from work to take me out to the hospital, and we spent about two and a half hours waiting in the emergency department to get this little jab... admittedly we were hardly a high priority - I wasn't about to die or anything! They were pretty busy, poor things. The medical registrar seemed run off his feet. So anyway, by the time I got back to work, it was lunch time, and then after lunch I finally did some work! And that's my story, wasn't it exciting?!

It's always a worry when you see something you think shouldn't be there. But it is not uncommon for women to spot a bit when pregnant. You just didn't need the excitement, though, I bet.

Glad you got your shot and hope all keeps going well, Stace. Nothing like having your own personal armed escort!

*Whew* I'm so thankful to hear that all is well with you and the little one, Stace.

Get used to the worrying about everything.. it doesn't end for.. well 21 years and counting.

Glad all is well. :)

Ponygirl - the armed escort was quite fun! It was a pity, though, that he couldn't bring a police car, so no lights and sirens :( haha

Jewel - This will need some thinking about... hehe

Hilary - I'm so glad I've only got... 21+ years of worry... lol oh well :) One presumes it's all worth it!

Stace, it will be a lifetime of worry, cuz that baby, even when old and grey, will always be your child. But worth every second, I am sure!
