Pregnancy Lost

I had a miscarriage at 8 weeks and 2 days. It’s almost a month later and I realise that I never came and updated this blog. It was a bit difficult to think about.

The rest of the pregnancy from 5 weeks 5 days to 8 weeks was much the same as my previous post. I didn’t really have many symptoms except the incessant need to run to the loo. I didn’t sleep well most of the pregnancy. I was 8 weeks on the Monday. That evening I had the slightest spotting. Tuesday morning I called the gynea’s office and they said to keep an eye on it, and if it got worse or didn’t feel comfortable to phone back. I called back in the afternoon and they booked me in for Wednesday morning. The bleeding got brighter red as the evening progressed, and in the evening the severe cramps started.

By the time I got to the appointment on Wednesday and had a scan one wall of my uterus was already completely clean. I had lost the pregnancy. The Dr sent me for blood test for various things, and I got the results this week. NOTHING! None of the tests showed any abnormalities. So I was told to wait one cycle and we can start again.

I’m going to use this blog as a journal of this whole journey. Please feel free to share your experiences with me. I’ve realised that I need to share everything that I’m going through or I tend to keep it all in, and I think I might explode then.
