I am so sorry 2 have 2 put this here, this place really needs an agony aunt section, lol!
Just before Christmas i experienced a missed miscarriage. I didn't know i was pregnant, i experienced heavy bleeding for 2 wks, clots, sickness etc, generally not nice symptoms. I went to the Gp who gave me some tablets and was sent home to let nature take its cause. I have not had a period for 7 years so i knew something was wrong, i only bleed when i am pregnant.
I found this extremely upsetting, i got no support and i was very confused and hopeful that the baby was still there. With all of my children i have hemorrhaged throughout the pregnancy but still had healthy boys. I was not offered a scan and it still upsets me now but apparently its the procedure they follow.
This was in dec and i have been bleeding since, perhaps a wk or 2 break in between. For the past 2 wks i have been bleeding very heavy, generally not feeling well, weak, feeling sick. Been to the doctors on a number of occasions, just told my hormones are still settling. On sat i was having contractions and "gushes of blood" my thought was another miscarriage but its almost impossible as we use protection.
I went bk to the doctors again yesterday, the gp thinks i have retained the baby :( i am devastated and to make it worse he tells me a scan will take a month or two to determine this. Needless to say i have payed privately for a scan and i am due to have it tomorrow. Been sent away with more pain relief and more tablets whilst potentially carrying my unborn child who died in my womb nearly 4 months ago!? Surely this isn't right, how cruel. How can they expect me to wait 2 months!?
I am worried what i will find tomorrow :(
Anyone been in a similar situation?
Thanks for listening, my husband is supportive but he feels hopeless knowing that there is nothing he can do or say xxx
