Ugh

So, today is my birthday, and it not starting off to be a good day. First, I coughed up blood last night. It was a blob a bit larger than a nickle, which is the most blood I have ever brought up in my life. Needless to say, I am freaked out and am calling my doctor the second 8:00 rolls around. I slept like crap last night because of this, so now I am exhausted too.

Secondly, I can't even stay home and rest because I have a horrendous meeting to go to first thing. I don't want to get into my job too much, but, the whole point of this meeting is because my client is pissed at some people who work for the state, so he wants me to "lay down the law" - i.e. get into an argument with them. It's going to be me against a room full of old men. This is not why I wanted to become an engineer. I just want to sit at my desk and play with numbers!

Thirdly, I am so, so, so disappointed in my home state of Maine this morning. I almost started crying when I saw the election results, and I still feel sick to my stomach and like crying :(

I had never coughed up blood in my life but I coughed up some when I was pregnant as well. My doc said it was ok as long as it wasn't straight blood. And didn't last long.

I don't have CF so needless to say, I don't know what you're going through. Just wanted to say that pregnancy does weird stuff to your body. I had never had a bloody nose in my life but had one almost every day of my second trimester. I hope your doc can put your mind at ease.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I know that it seems like a lot of blood, but just know that coughing up blood is never really an issue unless you can't get it all out of your lungs. My docs generally don't worry unless it's a cup at a time. Nevertheless, sorry it happened to you and I will pray that it's not a big deal :)
