And we know that in all things God works for the good of those that love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.

Update after seeing the doctor...

Everything actually looked really good. My cervix is still closed and hasn't made any changes. However, it looked irritated. They also did an ultrasound and it didn't show any reason for the bleeding in my uterus and also showed that my cervix looked good. (And of course, as always, little Miss Emersyn was active and looked great!!)

They believe that there is some sort of infection maybe that's causing my cervix to be irritated. The irritated cervix is then bleeding and also causing my uterus to contract. They did a swab to check for infection or a reason for the irritation. Basically, at this point it looks like my body is NOT trying to go into labor, which is a great thing!!! I'm going to quit taking the procardia since the contractions are not changing my cervix anyway. Then if we need it later on we'll have it as an option.

I'll continue to stay on restricted activity until I see the doctor again on Monday. Hopefully this will give some time for my cervix to "calm down". Once that happens both the bleeding and contractions should stop! Praise God!!!
