Hospital Visits

So far I have been to the hospital twice with this pregnancy and I am only 13.5 weeks along. My first visit was Sept 13th, I was having sever pains on my right side and couldn't hardly stand up straight. I was afraid it was ectopic which I think I talked about in an earlier post, but the second time was this last Tuesday. Charlie came home like he normally does at 8:30 and woke me up to get ready for work. I got ready to get in the shower when I realized I was bleeding, quite a bit. I had no pain which scared me even more because of my past experience with miscarriage. I called my Dr.'s office and they told me to go to the ER now. We got to the ER around 10am and didn't leave there until 4pm. I had an ultrasound and everything looks fine with the baby. Very active and healthy heart rate. About half way through our ER visit I start to get the same pains I had in Sept. After 6 hours in the ER and lots of blood work later, they send me home with a diagnosis of Threaten Miscarriage. Which pretty much means nothing to me. They tell me that the baby looks and sounds fine so why tell me its a possible miscarriage. I am told to go home and rest and follow up with my OB. So yesterday I am still bleeding and in pain and I go see my OB who tells me there is nothing wrong with the baby but she has NO idea what is causing the bleeding or the pain. So here I am, still bleeding and STILL in PAIN!! and there is not a dang thing I can do about it, except take Tylenol and really that does NOTHING for the pain. I just hope it gets better and will be an easy pregnancy from here on out or I don't know if I can do it again after this one.
