At 7 weeks something happened. There was a trace amount of pink on the toilet paper. I, of course, went straight to the World Wide Web for a consultation. Most of the sites advised that this was a perfectly normal occurrence and just to take it easy. Other sites advised that I should panic; it’s all over, go straight to the emergency room.
After a few days of relaxing, the problem didn’t seem to go away, so off I went to the emergency room with my husband.The hospital staff were very kind and understanding. They took me straight back to room #6, did an ultrasound and some blood tests and told me everything looked just fine. We saw and heard the heartbeat and went home feeling relieved and a little silly for having rushed to the hospital.
