Peek-A-Boo *UPDATE*

WARNING: You can file this one under TMI and WTF. If you are uncomfortable reading graphic content regarding a fellow blogger's hoohoodilly, I urge you not to read further.

I woke up this morning to go pee, as usual. As I wiped, I noticed specs of blood. Hmmmm. Tell me I'm not already getting PPAF, I bemoaned. It's only been 10+ weeks and I'm exclusively breastfeeding for cripes sake.

Upon further inspection, I noticed a pointy piece of tissue hanging from the bottom of my vajayjay. I thought it could be bloody discharge and tried to wipe it away only to realize it was firm - almost gummy in texture. I did not have the courage to excavate the trenches so I shuffled myself into some panties and headed off to work.

I feel like I've been accosted and am being asked to describe the perpetrator that exposed himself to me. It happened so suddenly that it is hard to illustrate the finer details.

My first thought is uterine prolapse.

I am scared.

I have a call into the OB and will keep you all posted. Any prayers or thoughts you could muster would be greatly appreciated.

UPDATE: They can't fit me in until tomorrow at 1:30pm. Apparently, this is the only "emergency" spot they have available. Hopefully, my uterus doesn't fall into the toilet in the meantime. If, in fact, it is what I suspect.

WTF? I'm thinking of you Kristin and praying that it is just one of those normal, weird things that happens post pregnancy. ((HUGS))

Kim said...

Goodness! Um.. I'd be finding an OB who could see me today. That's freaky-deaky.

Grad3 said...

Yikes! I hope it's not what you think... gl hun and keep us posted!

Topcat said...

Oh, sweetheart! this no, no, no good.

God I hope it's ok, shit. Our bodies do strange things after birth, I really hope it's nothing serious.

Thinking of you. XOXOX

Ack. That can't be a good thing.

But I was thinking maybe it's sutures that haven't disolved all the way? I know it doesn't compare, but I had something like that after my lap - just not in the same spot. I thought the incision was opening up or something.

My RE looked at it, grabbed long tweezers, and gave it a yank. No more icky messy stuff. It was some sutures that hadn't disolved all the way.

Just me ... feeling like a boob for making a big deal.

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that's all it is.

Cripes. That or a cystocoele- prolapse of the bladder....or rectocoele-prolapse of the bowel are all possible, but hoping it's none of the above.

I hope that's not it! Yikes...I'd be freaking out too! Good luck. Keep us in the loop, I'll be thinking about you all day!

JJ said...

Oh sweetie, I am sorry--any chance you will go to ER just for piece of mind--maybe you can call back and pester the doctor. Definitely thinking of you!

Elizabeth said...

how uncomfortable - and anxious, not knowing for sure what it is. Hope that it is all resolved soon.

Samantha said...

I don't have any great advice for you, but my thoughts will be with you this weekend! I really hope everything will be okay!

Melissa said...

I hope your appointment goes well today. Hopefully it's nothing serious (the uterine prolapse is a frightening concept)!

I'm glad you've decided to get it checked out as opposed to "self-excavating". Fingers crossed that all is okay.

Chili said...

Yeek! I hope it's nothing serious!

Holly Crosley said...

Saying a prayer that all is ok. Please update when you can.

Polka Dot said...

Just checking in on you. I hope your appt went well.

Somewhat Ordinary said...

OMG-please keep us posted as to what happens. I'll be thinking of you.

Denise said...

Oh wow. I hope you are doing okay!
