We were back to Melaka this weekend, for an ex-colleague's wedding.
Well, I love attending weddings. I bugged hubs to buy the tickets for this weekend, even though we were coming back for a long Gawai holiday the next weekend. She had attended our wedding, so I felt like it was a common courtesy to attend her event.
That Saturday morning, I was just too bored, so I picked up a broom and started sweeping my in laws' living room. Hubs had objected, he asked me to just sit and watch TV, but I just wanted to do something really, so I told him that I was going to sweep lightly.
Little that I know that after sweeping, I saw brown spotting on my panty. I was dead scared. We didn't know what to do, so hubs just asked me to lie down. I was really worried, and as always, I did some Googling.
"...brown spotting is generally caused by the changes that your body experiences during pregnancy. Your cervix is closing up tight to prepare for keeping the baby inside, and you'll experience more pressure against this part of your body as your uterus expands in preparation to become the home to a growing infant. It should also be noted that many doctors and midwives refer to this blood as "old blood," meaning that you have, essentially, lost a scab on your cervix. Sometimes brown blood comes from the vaginal walls themselves as well (which is even less to worry about).Brown blood is more concerning than pink blood because it is often heavier in volume. Although your doctor will likely tell you that you have nothing to worry about, it's best to touch base with him or your midwife about the fact that you've experienced some brown bleeding. Alerting your doctor allows him to be prepared if you need to call in because something has changed." - PregnancyNow
So I decided to wait till we go back to Miri to visit the doctor, and I prayed hard that the spotting will stop.
And yes, that spotting happened just at that particular moment and it stopped immediately after that. I felt fine, but only after hubs was satisfied then only did we go to the wedding. It was nice, just that we've missed the opportunity of meeting friends who came earlier to the wedding. And this entry is for you guys who had been asking why were we late ;)
All I needed that day was a good rest, and a trip to the movie to watch X-Men : Days of Future Past. Thanks hubs! *grin*
