8 hours of agony

My U/S is in just over 8 hours. 8 long hours. To make it that much worse, I had an 'issue' this morning.
I got up around 4 for my second nightly pee break. Nothing unusual about that. I peed, the normal amount. So far so good. I wiped - blood. I grabbed some more tp and wiped again, more blood. Lots and lots and lots of pink blood. Needless to say, going back to sleep wasn't an option.
I've spent the last couple of hours surfing, finding success stories and stories of doom and gloom. I don't know what is going on.
I've since been hitting the bathroom every half hour or so, just to check. The first followup was mostly darker leftover looking stuff. But since 5 there has been nothing.
Of course I'm concerned. As planned, in anticipation of a good u/s, I told my C level and HR VP yesterday. Was I being too optimistic. I don't really believe in jinxing, but was I wrong to be happy for a while?
Anyway, time will tell. My scan is in just over 8 hours. It could be bad news, it could be good news or it could be one of those horrible "we're not sure" trips. Sigh.
I'll post an update after my scan or if I start to bleed again.

I came to your blog hoping to see some updates. I'm so sorry for the scare!!! I remember reading about LOTS of women who ended up carrying 2.... or more babies having spotting episodes. For some reason multiples cause spotting for some women. The most important thing is the spotting has stopped!!!

Praying really hard for you!!

Please don't get too upset yet, no cramping and no clots you are mostly ok, just a warning to get get rid of some stress and take it easy for a few days. Know the u/s will help today. Love you and praying so hard for you.

Hoping the spotting was just a little nothing episode - put your feet up and rest if you can! Waiting with you til the u/s. Sending good thoughts your way!

I'm sorry you're dealing with the "blood" issue. It's so stressful. I had 2 episodes and it freaked me out. Just put yourself on bedrest when it happens and drink a TON of water and try to relax. The good news is that it stopped and isn't continuing. I've also read many stories of women who've bled, like bled and passed clots while in their 1st trimester and everything turned out fine. It's also common in IVF pregnancies and twin pregnancies... I can't wait to hear about you u/s! Just rest and drink!
