Emergency room scare

Last night around 10 pm after talking to Cody on the internet I started bleeding. I think most people know that while pregnant ( especially only 8 weeks along ) that's bad! So my dad took me to the emergency room. After taking blood (I got poked about 10 times in my arm before they gave up and used my hand instead ) a sonogram and MUCH waiting around twiddling my thumbs, ( why do they only have magazines in the waiting room because I waited MUCH longer inside the actual hospital room? ) the baby was fine and they don't know why I am bleeding. I think the three days of traveling and eating at weird times and no sleep wore me out and my body was mad! What sucked was I didn't get to see the baby when they did the sonogram! I got to hear the heartbeat for a minute but the man doing the sonogram didn't even tell me it was the heart beat because he basically wasn't allowed to tell me anything until after the radiologist looks everything over. The suspense was awful! Even when I heard the heart beat I was telling myself, "Don't get excited, that might be YOUR heart you are hearing" even though the heart beat was much faster, I just didn't want to get my hopes up. As of right now I am still bleeding but it comes and goes and isn't really heavy. They basically told me that for now the baby is alive and healthy but bleeding is a bad sign and I still COULD miscarry so I am on "pelvic rest" haha The nurse said no sex for a while and my dad said, "Well, I am sure her husband who is in Iraq will be glad to hear she isn't allowed to have sex for a while!" haha For those who know my dad, even at 1 in the morning he is still a goof ball. So keep us in your prayers. Hopefully the bleeding will stop and all will be well. Today my mom stayed home from work to help me with Tyler and stuff. Poor Tyler was up until 12:30 or so so he is TIRED too. The doctor at the ER said he would call my doctor her in Utah and see if he can get me in to see her sooner. I didn't have an appointment until August 7th so cross your fingers that I will get in sooner then that! I am off to go rest my pelvis now...
