So I took Friday off to go downtown with Matt and his sister for the Blackhawks/Stanley Cup parade. It was extremely hot and humid outside. I forgot to eat breakfast. I got a Snickers bar after we got off the train and ate it as we walked. We walked all the way to Michigan Ave. We secured a spot along the parade route and stood, waiting for it to start. After 20-30 min, I noticed how much more crowded it had gotten. I suddenly felt extremely hot and could hardly breathe. I felt like I might throw up. I told Matt I thought I was going to black out. I held on to him and made my way to the sidewalk. I sat down on the curb and waited for Matt to bring me some water and Gatorade. I sat for about a half hour. I started to feel better and was ok to stand when the parade started. When it was over, I walked over to Qdoba for lunch. I felt ok after that. We walked around a bit more and had lunch at The Cafe Lux before heading back to the train to go home.
I decided to take it easy the rest of the weekend. Yesterday we did a little shopping and met up with his family for dinner. After that we rented a movie and relaxed at home. I wasn't cramping or anything, but all day I noticed an uncomfortable itchy/burning sensation "down there." And then, right before bed, I noticed the tiniest bit of pink spotting on the TP when I wiped. I panicked, immediately thinking of what happened almost exactly this time last year. One little spot of pink blood was the first sign that things weren't going to work out.
So I've been freaking out since last night. Hopefully it's just some type of aggravation/infection that can easily be treated. I am taking off work tomorrow and plan to call my dr first thing in the morning for an appointment. All I can do right now is rest and pray it's nothing major.
If you read this, please say a little prayer for the bean. I am 15.5 weeks along right now, almost halfway there. Please pray this baby sticks and I get to meet him/her in December.
