That was a bad night! This is more bleeding than I had after I delivered Andrew. The cramping was pretty bad, but only slightly more painful than my normal AF cramps. Sucketh mucho.
I almost passed out around 2:30 a.m.--suddenly I got really dizzy and everything turned black and my hubby came and checked on me asking if I was okay (I was lying on the floor). I had him Google how much bleeding is normal but I was so close to having him take me to the hospital because I was scared of passing out and not waking up (I am not sure how that happens--like, what does your body do when it decides enough is enough?). It was the first time in my life I seriously thought I might be dying! Panic!
Anyway, after some bad pain and then a few clots, the cramping sort-of went away and now I'm still bleeding quite heavily but not as bad as before (before being running to the bathroom every 10 minutes to release about 1/4 cup of blood--it just peed out of me, so to speak).
Poop. I want to get some sun the next three days, and I certainly know I won't be swimming now.
