i was bleeding slightly my husbend rang the N H S direct we were refered to the primary care centre at the local hospital as it was a saturday and the gp practic was closed. We saw a dr who refered us to the gynocoligy ward where i undertook some tests and they didnt seem that concerned about the bleed. On the following Monday we had an ultrasound and saw our baby it was tiny only 5mm in length and its little heart was beating we were so happy and reileved to see our new addition.A week went by without a bleed i was relieved then the following week i was bleeding i saw the midwife for the 1st time she took all the appropraite tests and asked all the medical questions, i told her about the bleed but she didnt seem that concerned. O the monday i had a bad bleed also loosing clots, we contacted the hospital but they just told me to rest and booked me in for an ultrasound on the 6 8 08. We arrived i felt sick then during the test we were told the devistating news that our baby was not there i was and still am heartbroken as it is only 3 days ago. I chose the natures way to end the rest of the preganancy as it has already taken my baby but the bleeding has stopped! the medical staff said i would have a very heavy period but i havent ! i have to return to the ward next friday to have another scan to see if the pregancy has gone! i am terrified can anyone give me any advice please/
How far along were you (in weeks). What do you mean by you chose the nature's way? Did you have an abortion? I don't know much about that subject but there are many women here who do know. When you go back to the hospital, they may have to perform a d&c if there is any remaining tissue left.
no i could never have an abortion! i was given 3 options i was 10 weeks pregnant 1st option is to let nature take it course to end the pregnancy i should have a heavy period and loose more clots! the clots will be the empty sac as my angel has already gone! we saw the empty sac on the ultra sound monitor i requested a 2nd and 3rd opinion. the 2nd option is they will gine me a tablet then 2days later put 2 tablets inside me keep me as an inpatient to monitor my bleed 3rd is a local anasthetic then worse than a smeer test they will scrape the dead sac out! on the monitor the sac had already started to crumble away so that is why i chose natures way a sad attempt to hold on to my baby that had already gone!
Hi sweety.... i have had 4 misscarriages in the past and i know how much your poor little heart is aching. I had my first when i was 18 ( im now 30) and it was the most painful thing ive ever experienced in so many ways. I had to have a d&c and it took many years to get over it. I went on to have 3 more and was then told i would probably never carry a preganancy to term. i was gutted!!!! I spent many years trying to at least find a reason and after 5 long years i found out i had a chromosome problem wheni was born and there was nothing anyone could do plus i didnt ovulate properly so they said to just give up my dream!!!!
I know how you feel and what your going thru but after all that i am now a mum to the most beautiful baby boy and am trying again to complete my family.
My advice to you is this....get second opinions on everything. 1 docs theory isnt gospel. NEVER give up!!!! Miracles happen. im living proof of that and so is my son. Seek help from anyone who has an idea.the person u think wont know anything usually does. Goodluck sweety and contact me anytime for a chat
