Discussions that mention vicodin

Miscarriage & Still Birth board


It's possible. I miscarried last February with my first pregnancy. Well, we found out at the ultrasound on January 30, and then it passed in February. we would have been 10 weeks and 5 days in but the ultrasound showed that it had died during the sixth week. This is how mine went: A week before the ultrasound I began light spotting, which increasingly got worse (primarily following the ultrasound). My doctor told me what was going to happen and gave me a prescription for vicodin in case I needed it. One morning I woke up around 5 and was cramping really badly. I took one of the vicodin and went back to sleep. A few hours later I woke up in excruciating pain. It was by far the worst pain I have ever felt, and way worse than menstrual cramps. I got hot. I thought if I walked around a little I might be able to distract myself and I ended up passing out. I remember walking toward the closet and then waking up with my fiance freaking out. I honestly didn't know what the heck had happened. I literally thought I'd fallen asleep on the floor because I couldn't figure why the heck I was next to the vacuum cleaner. He helped me up and I went into the bathroom. I'd put a pad in my panties when I'd taken the vicodin before (just in case) and it was completely soaked. I changed it (and these were the thickest pads I could find) and looked at myself in the mirror. I was really pale and clammy to the touch. We left for the hospital and about halfway there (total travel time about 10 minutes) I had a sudden intense pain in my lower abdomen, and then it disappeared as soon as it had started.

When we got to the hospital I was brought back immediately and went into the bathroom. It'd only been about 15-20 minutes and the pad was already soaked through. I had to send rafael home to get me some clean clothes. They drew my blood, tested my hormone levels and put in an iv. the doctor came in and checked me and said that i'd dilated some. he told me to take it easy and told me what was going on. i had to see my doctor the next week.
