Sorry for the detail and length of this story it really helps for me to share my heart ache. I had just returned from my holiday in the Lake District. I started getting mild type period pain with brown discharge I contacted NHS Direct, spoke to a Dr, who assured me of this being a common problem which would later settled down. The next morning symptoms persisted so again I rang NHS again and a Dr told me to go casualty. I did a urine sample and saw blood droplets up to this point i had only a tiny show of blood. I was sent home after 2 hrs because there was an 8 hour waiting time for a gynaecologist. I was told to return the same day or contact the early pregnancy unit the following day if things worsened. Over the course of Monday things stayed the same on Tuesday I had discharge and mild pain, but it was easing and clearing much to my relief. Wednesday afternoon there was severe period pains like contractions and severe blood loss occurred to my absolute horror. My GP saw me asked me and my husband to wait anxiously at home for contact from early pregnancy unit. I just could not sit at home waiting and let no one do nothing or care. We went to A&E and waited a short time before seeing a Dr and Nurse. I did a urine sample and later it was confirmed that I had passed most of the product. I endured a part of it coming out really quickly, at home. Another clot passed at hospital which they took to be examined. An examination of my cervix etc which was wide opened confirmed they worst. Sorry for all the details if I can prevent this happening to anyone my story might educate or help those in similar circumstances. I had high blood pressure pulse and fever I was admitted and monitored with a drip. I was then discharged from hospital the next day. This all happened the day before I was due for my first scan. The original appointment was kept as I was already at the hospital. It was so difficult after the scan to walk past lots of pregnant women. The scan confirmed a complete miscarriage and I am so much missing my pregnancy that for a month of knowing made my life complete. This was to be my 1st child with my husband, but my 2nd child my 1st is 18 yrs old and due to leave home soon. Nothing will ever replace this one that I was looking so forward to having and loving. We will try again when I have grieved the absence and loss. I wish they would have warned me that there was more to come out for what my eyes have seen and what I have felt internally has been by far the worst time in my life. I never thought this would happen to me, I took all the care I could of myself and gave smoking up and alcohol watched what I ate and prayed all would be well. Final ending to all this was told having had a cough, cold and sore throat (viral infections) may have had some contribution. I was not ill once with this, but twice. Also an 18 year age gap between the two pregnancies is possible for the miscarriage. I am now hanging on to those few little cherished baby things I bought in the hope that one day soon my 3rd time lucky little angel will happen. God be willing. Thanks for reading my thread.
