This experience has been unlike any other pregnancy experience I have ever had. On the 27th of June I used the restroom and discovered I had a very light pink tint on the toilet paper after I wiped. Long behold - implantation bleeding! I had this occur with Olivia and I was more than positive that we had conceived at this point. I was FULL of bliss over the next couple of days until something terrifying happened. I noticed that when I wiped, there was still blood. It was alarming because I'd never had bleeding when I wipe last more than just a day and a half. I was optimistic because the blood wasn't even on the pad, let alone a heavy flow but still... It has never happened to me before and it scared me. 

Worried and stuck in my own worry wart thoughts, I decided to go to the emergency room. I had already taken over twenty pregnancy tests at this point and I kept getting positive results. I knew I was pregnant, I just didn't know what was happening with my body. I was in the emergency room for four whole hours and thankfully by the end of my visit, I felt better. I had to give a urine sample, my blood was taken, and I was hooked on an IV to receive fluids. An ultrasound was performed on me and they were able to see that I had a 9cm cyst on my right ovary. The doctor said this could likely be the cause of my bleeding and the cramping as well. 

Because there are no guarantees in conception, there was no sure way for them to say that my pregnancy would be just fine. I did receive my HCG levels and those levels confirmed that I was indeed pregnant. After I left the ER I felt better knowing that we had beaten our fertility again and for now... I could let small thoughts of baby # 3 completely consume my dreams. It's like a teeter totter of emotions so far. I am OVER THE MOON that we have conceived again.. but I'm scared. The bleeding has really put me off and I don't want to get myself extremely worked up just to find out it is bad news.
