Continued, guess I'll just have to keep continuing, I'm sorry

   So i made it through that, which by the way was the sickest I'd been in years, but my baby looked fine on ultrasound, his heartbeat was strong, and that was all that mattered.  Until a couple of weeks later, I woke up at about 2 am one night, cramping and feeling strange. I went to the bathroom to find that I had started bleeding, and not the kind of light spotting that can be normal at any point in pregnancy, but actually bleeding. I called the on-call OB and he said to call first thing the following morning to schedule an appointment, which of coarse I did. They did another pelvic ultrasound and saw that the baby still had a good, strong heartbeat, but Dr. Drake (my wonderful OB) said to be prepared to miscarry within the next week because my uterus looked like it was trying to expel the baby.
    Now I know earlier I said I was devastated to discover I was pregnant, but regardless of that, I certainly didn't want to lose a baby. So I took it easy for the next several days, went it for a follow up appointment a week later.
