the amnio needle. that was one of THE worst experiences of my life. it hurt like a motherf*cker (excuse my language) and I came very close to fainting and/or puking.
NOW I'm bleeding. off to the ob for an emergency visit. b is late in picking me up.
fuck. fuck. fuck!
QUICK UPDATE: there is no "active bleeding" as of now (that my ob could see) and my cervix is closed nice and tight. I am still cramping though but it is not rhythmic which would be worrisome. I am ordered to stay off my feet for the next 2 days. ugh, more "bedrest."
I wouldn't wish an amnio on my worst enemy. more on that horrific experience later. now back to the couch I go.
