Yesterday was the first day of school for the children. I am new to this school this year so am still getting to know the families and staff. I am also almost 14 weeks pregnant. After the noon dismissal yesterday I noticed that I was bleeding. Having experienced two miscarriages (both much earlier) I panicked, called my husband who promptly left work and came to take me to the ER. My principal, who is the only person at my school who knows I'm pregnant, sat with me in my classroom and prayed with me until my husband arrived. We got to the ER and they saw us quickly. After blood work and several attempts to see if my blood pressure would lower they did an ultrasound and we saw the baby moving around with a good heartbeat. Thank God. Thank God. Thank God. I had to wait to see what blood tests showed... and they showed that I am potassium deficient so the ER doctor made me drink a huge jug of orange liquid that was filled with potassium. He also ordered me 2 days of bedrest, which is horrible since it's just the 2nd and 3rd days of school. You all know very well how much the kids need that routine established early on. I returned to school around 4 PM and left detailed lesson plans and instructions for the sub with the school secretary. As she, my husband, and I were walking out to the parkinglot to our cars I started to vomit uncontrollably the orange Potassium juice. There was seriously no warning in my stomatch. Just happened. It was extremely embarassing to get sick around a new coworker. The bleeding lessened by the time I fell asleep and then got slightly worse over night but has been negligible today. I see the Perinatal specialist tomorrow. Please, please, please pray for my little baby. Please ask God to give us the opportunity to love, raise, and take care of His creation as mother and father. Please ask him to spare my husband and me from the pain of another loss. Please pray that my new school doesn't engage in any silly speculation of why the "new teacher" is taking sick time the very first week of school. Please pray that God calms and tempers the parents of my students who might be upset about this inconsitency. Thank you so much for praying, and reading. May God Bless You.
