C talked me into leaving early Tuesday night to Vegas instead of Wednesday morning.  I was actually excited to go ( I hadn't been looking forward to this trip all that much)!  We dropped Oliver off at my parents and hit the road.  I slept most of the way and we arrived to Encore at the Wynn at 11pm (a three hour drive).  I was exhausted!  By the time we were ready for Bed it was close to 1AM.  I went to the bathroom, wiped and there it was, pink tissue.  I look in the toilet and see RED BLOOD!  "Oh my Goodness!" I called C over immediately and showed him the toilet.  He freaked.  I wanted to call my mom, C didn't let me.  He said the best thing to do is wait to see if it gets worse.  I knew he was right.  There was nothing anybody could do.  So I tried to go back to sleep, but tossed and turned.  I prayed and prayed and prayed.  I woke up at 430 and it had stopped.  There was now just a tinge of pink and by morning it was brown.  Thank the Lord!

I called Dr. S and told her what had  happened.  "Have you had sex in the last 24 hours?" I responded, "yes, but it was the the night before!"  She told me that it is very common from sex because of all the extra blood flow to the uterus and cervix.  I am now on "pelvic rest" until she checks me again, which won't be until Monday!  What a way to start a vacation, huh?  I am TRAUMATIZED to say the least!

I have been taking it easy, sleeping a lot, and going to bed early.  Although yesterday we (with Dr. S's permission) took a helicoptor to the Grand Canyon!  It was a lot of fun!  We flew over the Hoover Dam, Lake Meed, The Colorado River, and then had lunch at the bottom of the Grand Canyon!  Amazing!  Its absolutely gorgeous!  I took a bunch of pics which I'll post when we get home.  I hadn't been there since I was a kid, so it was definitely fun to go back with the hubs!

Here is my 13 week update:

How Far Along: 13 weeks 1day

How Big Are the Babies: I've got two peaches in there!  Baby size 2.9 inches and .81 oz.

Up until now, your babies heads have bee proportionally larger then the rest of their bodies  but around this time your babies bodies will start to catch up and grow more proportional to their heads.

If you could peek inside your womb, you could see your babies motor skills staring to work.  Your babies are able to move and flex the arms and legs, but you won't be able to feel this movement until later.

Total Weight Gain: Probably 10 maybe 11?  I haven't weighed myself in a while.  I've been regularly gaining 1-2 lbs a week.

Maternity Clothes: I got two new dresses for this trip, very cute!.

Sleep: Sleep is not good.  I can't wait to be back in my own bed!

GENDER: TWO WEEKS 5 DAYS!!!!  March 23rd!!!

Movement: Still waiting!  I did have a dream I felt them though!  It felt so real!

Food Cravings: Nothing new really. C's company has been providing almost all the food, and it totally sucks!  The other night it was filet mignon, which I normally love, but gag!  I tried a couple bites and couldn't eat it!  It was the first steak I've tried in WEEKS!

What I Miss: My energy.  I'm in Vegas and exhausted!

What I'm looking forward to: My massage later today!  Also, going to see Dr. S on Monday to make sure the babes are A-OK

Milestones: Made it to the SECOND TRIMESTER!!  According to most books, anyway!  Some say week 14, but I'm saying now!

Symptoms: I am literally EXHAUSTED!  I just had breakfast and ready to go back to bed!  I don't think I've been sleeping all that well :-/

I've heard about sex causing bleeding, but still would not wish it on anyone especially someone who has been trying for so long. Hope this is the last time you've seen red (well until the labour, of course). Enjoy the little relaxation!!!

Sorry about your scare. We had one early on around 7 weeks from exactly the same thing... not fun at all and definitely made me a bit fearful to try anything again but a couple weeks later everything was fine and has been since (fingers crossed).

I agree on the steak... yuck! Felt like I was chewing animal (which I know it is but was just all wrong this time around... haven't touched it since).

Oh no! That would freak me out, too. Stay cozy, little babies!!!

I couldn't imagine how scared you were! I've also heard of this happening too. Praying that those babies are perfectly fine.
