Unhappy Its been nice having this place, but time to say goodbye for now

My worst fears came true today. I'm suffering from another miscarriage at 10 weeks 1 day. I'm thankful that it happened now tho instead of a few months down the road. I woke up this morning to find myself covered in a heavy brown discharge. Went to the hospital and spent 5 hours goin thru pure torture for it to end in this. Had a blood test done to confirm my level of pg hormone which was still at the level it was suppose to be for 10 weeks. Had an iv inserted for back up. Had a internal exam done to make sure my cervix was still closed. Then a cathiter (sp?) inserted so they could do an abdominal and internal sonagram, in which they had to pump my bladder full of water. VERY UNCOMFORTABLE worse part of the day!!! Once all the test were done the dr came in not an ob/gyn just the ER dr. And he started out by saying I think you have lost your baby, but your hormone level is still up really high... is that normal or even possible if I lost the baby already? Told me my restrictions and to follow up with the ob/gyn tomorrow. Ok I said. Then my nurse came in and gave me more info. Saying that they spotted something on the sonagram, but they aren't sure rather its still the baby or if its something left over in there. He said the baby is so small at this point that its hard to really tell. He said if I didn't already pass the baby that I was more then likely too, but if I went home and stayed on bedrest, didnt lift anything, have sex, take tub baths or drive that it might actually take a turn around. But if any bright red blood started to show then I was goin to miscarry. About 2 hours after I came home I started having the bright red bleeding. So I guess it truly is over. Has anyone else went thur this and how was your turnout? Thanks

Re: Its been nice having this place, but time to say goodbye for now

Wow!! I am so sorry! I read the other day on another pregnancy board that one woman had a miscarriage a few weeks ago was asking when her period should have started and thought she may be pregnant again.... Well, it turned out that she was pregnant but it was the SAME pregnancy!! She had never lost the baby like the doctor said she did. So, yes, there is still hope for your little one. I truly hope this baby will stay safe and you are in my prayers!! Good Luck!!!

Re: Its been nice having this place, but time to say goodbye for now

I'm really, really sorry to hear what you went through... I ended up at ER myself at 9 weeks, and it was a horrible experience, I had really bad bleeding (more like blood gushes) but the baby was ok (in my case it was a subchorionic hematoma). We are praying for you all to go well, just take care of yourself the best you can, that's all you can do. Let us know what the doctor said. You are in our prayers.

Re: Its been nice having this place, but time to say goodbye for now

Beanie, are you going to see your OB? Please tell me you are! Strange things happen with pregnancies. My OB told me that. Some women still have periods. Others have strange bleeding from the cervix, or elsewhere. If your hormones are still up, and they saw SOMETHING, then wait until the OB checks you and finds out what is going on for sure. I've heard of more than one person who thought they had a miscarriage but went on to have a healthy baby. On another board, there was a girl someone was talking about who was told she was miscarrying and recommended to have a d & c. She refused, and ended up have a healthy baby! I'm not trying to give you false hope, because I know how hard that can be from experience, but I want you to know that ER docs are BY NO MEANS experts on pregnancy. Just wait until your OB evaluates you. Good luck. Let us know and we'll be thinking of you.

Re: Its been nice having this place, but time to say goodbye for now

Your OB/Gyn is probably more experienced in this area than an ER doctor. I went to the ER at 12 weeks for spotting brown blood. Well, I had actually been spotting since my 6th week, but this time it was heavier. The ER doctor told me I had a tear and that it was a wait and see situation. When I went to my OB/GYN and showed him the scans, he couldn't find what the ER doctor was talking about. The bleeding stopped my 14th week and I am now 12 days away from my due date.

I hope all is well!! Tell us how your visit goes!

Re: Its been nice having this place, but time to say goodbye for now

I am so sorry. I agree that you MUST go see your OB. I went to the ER with this pregnancy when I was right around 9 weeks. Bleeding, pain, etc. Even had to have my bladder filled up like you did - OUCH!! Then the ER doc (I swear they are idiots), told me I was miscarrying. I went home devistated. Went to my doc later in the week, and got an u/s, and i didnt miscarry. Im not saying that this is going to turn out the same, but you never know. Dont give up hope until YOUR doctor tells you otherwise.

Oh, Beanie. I'm sorry to hear of your experience. This is my first pregnancy and I'm learning as I go, but I, too, think you should visit your OB.
I'm praying for you to come through this ok regardless the outcome. Remember to take care of yourself and surround yourself with friends.
