Ok so the night before last I got ready for bed. Brushed my teeth and use saline spray and blew my nose since I was all stuffed up like I have been for most of the pregnancy. Ive always had sinus issues. Anyhow, I laid down around 11pm and woke up close to 4am feeling really nauseous. I tried to disregard it and get back to sleep probably 3 or 4 times but kept waking up. When I decided to get up and try to use the bathroom to hopefully get back to sleep I was awake enough to realize I felt like I was having post nasal drip. So when I got it out of my throat and spit it out of my mouth into the sink it was nothing but blood, spit and 2 nice sized blood clots. I remember in my mouth it had felt like the chunky mucus you get with a cold etc but when I spit it out and saw that it was a lot of blood. I have had nosebleeds with my pregnancies and some bleeding before due to blowing my nose but nothing like this. I used the saline spray again later that day due to stuffiness but I never had anymore of the bleeding/clotting since that one time. Anyone know what it might be? Here's a link to a pic I took of it to show my rheumy:
Lemme know if anyone has experienced this before! I also had a strange experience a few nights before that which I thought was low blood sugar. I hadn't eaten dinner yet and had been upset due to hormones. I was sitting at the table and all of the sudden I started feeling really disoriented and then everything almost went completely black in front of me and I started falling out of the chair. It happened twice almost back to back, then I got really shakey & anxious, dizzy, my heart started racing. I was very nauseous and my stomach hurt like bad hunger pains. My bf was standing there and helped me get some juice cuz I thought it was my sugar so I chugged that down and ate a little something and eventually it went away. Even before all that I had been drinking gatorade so I wasn't sure why my sugar would've dropped so drastically since I had something in my system at least. Dont know if that was connected or not to the above occurrence but thought Id mention it.
Also, I wanted to inform everyone since the hernia surgery my son had on Aug 13th, he has now contracted staph/mrsa infection in his incision & they have him on 2 diff meds for it. It is local only thankfully but were praying it heals & gets better as the next step is to go back in and remove the infection. Keep us in your prayers as I am due for my c-section Sept 20th at the same hospital he had his surgery & we think maybe the germs came from the hospital itself. I am a little scared to come home and have my son fulltime, a newborn & myself with a much larger incision and opportunity for infection with a compromised immune system already. Hope everything works out with this! Hope you all are well. *hugs* -Lupie Britt
