Just thought I should update on my iffy situation from a few weeks ago.
Thursday last week, it was confirmed that I indeed had a blighted ovum. At 10 weeks gestation, It hadn't grown past the 6 weeks size (about 14mm). Drs at the hospital were happy to give me misoprostal & i miscarried that same night. It was reasonably quick with manageable pain. Now im just waiting for my hcg to drop to zero.
Im actually feeling ok about it all now. Kind of relieved the worry is over. Getting ready to get my body healthy & happy to try again soon
So passed some much bigger clots this evening still without pain, but I can't imagine that the baby is still in there after that. I'm sad but I'll be ok. I just don't understand why this keeps happening to me. Fwiw my last miscarriage was completely pain free as well.
Just been into the Ed with severe cramping and passing much larger clots than yesterday. I have a doctors certificate to be off for the rest of the week and ultrasound Tuesday to check for products of conception definitely all over
My day can't compare to the horrors of yours jussi, but today was my first family gathering since losing my boy. I communicated, I smiled, I pretended I was normal. But inside I was just willing someone, anyone, to ask me about my boy. I just gave birth and I hate that I have to hide my strong little man away like he's a dirty secret.
Doesn't help that monday is also the due date of my first angel.
Hope you ladies are all coping this weekend xx
