please don't apologize, marti. i'm glad you posted. what an incredible stress - you poor thing! i'm so, so sorry you are going through this. its just really scary. i have a friend who had a lot of bleeding throughout and delivered a healthy baby boy. i know it seems so hard to believe, but it really is true. this is common and you are not alone. again, i'm just so sorry. i have no advice or insight, but i'm thinking of you and hope that the bleeding stops! hang in there, sweetheart.
