Heart - I just checked in I can't believe your post! Praying hard for you right now. I know it's easy to say don't panic, but I am praying for peace over your body and mind and that this is NOT what you fear.
Thanks Croy. I'm still on hold to speak to a nurse. I can't help but think this is bad news. The blood is dark red. The lower back cramp is also on the left side of my uterus. Not severe but definitely there. I can't imagine anything good.
I know there are many stories that have even heavy bleeds turning out to be nothing serious, but again, when it's your body it is so hard to believe it will be a happy ending. I hope you get a hold of someone very soon, and that they can fit you in today so you can know what's going on. Are the cramps bad? You could even go to the ER and see if they would scan you.
Heart, DONT PANIC! I was just reading my miscarriage book and the author was saying it never ceases to amaze her how much women can bleed and everything is fine on the scan. She herself bled in a meeting with 20 ob gyns and she was saying it was ironic as there was nothing they could do! Got a strong feeling your scan is going to put your mind at rest, you must be seen today though what are they playing at! x x x x x x x x x
Yes, I could go to the ER, but often you wait hours and hours. My husband insisted to the nurse that a doctor call us to discuss. Part of the issue is that I can't pass this naturally. My doctor wants to test the tissue which means I need to have a D&C. If I end up passing the tissue tonight, we'll be at square one again. We need to test the tissue because I have a uterine abnormality. If the tissue comes back normal, we can make the assumption that my uterus has been causing my losses. Unfortunately the tissue from all my other losses was not tested. I need this tested. If it's my uterus causing the losses, we're probably moving on to surrogacy.
If the tissue is abnormal, we'll probably keep trying. The stupid nurse didn't seem to understand this concept. And my doctor isn't on call, so it's some other stupid doctor saying I have to come in tomorrow. My husband just yelled at the nurse and insisted that the doctor call us.
If you went to the ER they could scan you to see whats going on, and they could collect anything that might be helpful too.
I know that the smaller hospital near us that has an ER is usually empty on the weekends. It isn't the emergency room most of the emergencies go to, so its quieter. I wonder if you could find a smaller hospital that has an ER, there might not be a long wait. I had a kidney infection suddenly flare up once and we went to that ER and there was no one in the waiting room and we were seen right away.
So sorry this is so stressful
