(TMI) My bleeding seemed to slow down today (started medical miscarriage last wed pm). I was at work and all of a sudden, felt like my water broke like my last labor (for lack of a better description)....went to the bathroom and passed two baseball sized clots.
Since then, the bleeding has increased greatly along with the cramps. This started at 1:30 pm and I've gone through 3 super pads and now I'm trying some maternity ones I had from my last hospital stay. I'm also taking Tylenol 3 and it doesn't seem to be doing anything.
I just want to see if this is normal or when I should start getting concerned...or is this a good sign that things are clearing out?
They say if you fill a pad in less than an hour you should go to the hospital.
I have had a couple of trips to the hospital after giving birth 5 weeks ago, they made sure there was no infection and gave me scan to check what was going on. They let me go same days with antibiotics.
If it gets worse I would call ur midwife (if u had one) or ur local EPU- sometimes quicker than A&E.
Hope it eases for you soon Hun, sorry for your loss xx
As soon as I posted, I had to rush to the bathroom. Big clots passed and it would not stop bleeding...to the point i was in the shower, husband (who is certified as a paramedic) took my blood pressure cause I thought I was going to pass out. It was 90/50. He called the emergency line, who said to give it 30 minutes (I took the med to slow the bleeding). I laid in the shower for a long time...maybe 45 minutes. (I wasn't paying attention)
It slowed but I was so scared. I filled two pregnancy pads in less than 10 minutes. I'm praying it doesn't start again.
i bled not hugely but like a very heavy period for a few days after both D and Cs with my first two miscarriages. My last(most current) miscarriage i miscarried naturally and its now a month on and im just spotting after having lighter bleeding past few weeks, that bleeding was pretty heavy and clotty for about a week and a half although only filled up a pad every few hours was just like a very heavy and bad period thats the only way i can describe it to you
i think if your really worried hun go and get checked out its better safe than sorry!
Hon, for my first and third miscarriage, I bled very heavily. I would say I went through a pad about every 20 minutes for the first week. I think the clots are quite huge though. I had some big ones, but a baseball size sounds too big to me. I see you posted this yesterday. How are you today hon?
Well, if it starts up again that bad....I would just go in to the ER and have them see with their own eyes. Sometimes I get the feeling that DR's just think we make it up in our heads. I became anemic, so if you aren't feeling stronger soon, I would get that checked too, since you bleed so much. Sorry for your loss. I have been there three times. I see you are TTC #3. I had three m/c before I finally kept this one (I am almost 15 weeks). It was a very hard four years to get to here, but I just wanted to say, don't lose hope. I still miss my babies in heaven though. That's why I come here still. I will never forget my babies, and I will never forget the pain of losing a baby.
