threatened miscarriage...Please pray!
Let me start from the begining.I was in bed at like 7:45 am sound asleep and then I was woke up slightly to a warm gush that I could feel was coming from my umm hoo hoo.I was very out of it so I chalked it up to the progeseterone suppository gushing out as happens with those things.In retrospect it was a much gushier/watery feeling, but like I said I was dead asleep and only woke for a few seconds after feeling that.Well fast forward about a half an hour and I woke up this time to feeling like I was drenched in sweat.I then realized that it was only the lower half of me that was wet.I in a disorientated state felt the bed under me and it was wet.I brought my hand to my face to check for blood, I didn't see any.I then turned over to see a light pink spot on my white sheets that was about as big as a baseball.I then woke my husband and darted to the bathroom.Once I was in there I saw that my medium absorbancy pad was saturated with pink fluid.Maybe diluted blood.My underwear and pj bottoms had a good amount on them too.I was not bleeding when I wiped but I almost fainted in the bathroom.I had sweat running down my chest.And I am not a person who gets sweaty.I lost my hearing and I knew I was going out soon.I put head down towards my feet and sat until it passed.DH was scared but supportive I was impressed at his ability to stay realtivly calm even though I could tell he was scared.I then started making calls.The first was to my OBGYN who was not open yet.Second I called my RE's office which I was only getting everyones voicemail so I actually used the emergency option on the menu and it worked, before I knew it I was talking to the receptionist and I told her what was happening.She then passed a message on and said the nurse would call me back.I then called my OBGYN as they were open at this point, telling them what was happening and they said to keep my appointment at 2:45pm since I wasn't bleeding bright red blood.After I got off the phone with them my RE called back and I told them what was going on.She then said she would talk to the doctor and see about getting me in and she would call me back shortly.Well on my next trip to the bathroom there it was the bright red blood and there was a decent amount of it.So DH called the obgyn to tell them and and they said to go to the ER.After he hung up the RE's office called and said they could see me at 1pm.I told her about the bright red blood and she said to come in right then instead because they can do an u/s right there.So we headed out and I sat in tears and silence sobbing on the way there.It is an hour drive which felt like forever.We got there and when we were taken back and they permormed an u/s.I was crying at this point scared to see the baby without a heartbeat.He was performing the u/s and said look can you see the heartbeat and I replied that I couldn't see it (i was in tears during this)and he then turned on the sound and we heard the babys heart it was at 182.7bmp. He also said that there was plenty of fluid around it and that it looked good.They did note that I have cysts on both ovaries but that they were of no concern, I however do have pain on the left side by my ovary assumbably from the cyst.They were perplexed at what the fluid might be and tried say it may be urine.I tried explaining that I felt it come from my hoo hoo no where else.I know that there are plenty of you out there that would agree that you can feel something pass through your hoo hoo.It's just a sensation that you are well aware of.He then said I was having a threatened miscarriage and now I am on strict bedrest.I was continuing to bleed heavier while they did the u/s.He also switched me to PIO shots instead of the suppositories as I am unable to absorb them while I am bleeding.The only pharmacy here that carries it only had one bottle even though my script calls for more.I will be on it longer than that.I decided to keep my appointment at my obgyn because I really wanted to update her and get so more input on things.I this time also took in my pad from when I was sleeping that was full of fluid(in a baggie of course) as I meant to take it to the RE but forgot it. She agreed that it was not urine but slightly bloody fluid.She asked how many embies we had transferred and were we sure that only one took?I said that is all they have ever told us.She wondered if there was an extra sac from one that didn't make it and that was the fluid from it after it ruptured.Which is interesting because DH and had wondered that same thing just before we saw her.She did not do an u/s but I showed her the pics from this morning and she said that it all looked very good and that she liked the baby's heartrate that the RE had gotten.She then has scheduled me for an u/s on the 26th which is in 5 days.She also is getting me in to see her on the 1st.I will still have my full OB appointment on the 10th.My OB was so compasionte and understanding.So girls all I can do is wait and wonder and be terrified.I have no more fluid coming out but am still bleeding but it has slowed down since i have been in bed.So please we could use all the prayers we can get as we are sad and scared.
