So, I went to the OB to have my Mirena removed (I had had it for not quite 5 years.) and I found out I was pregnant. I had been having lots of clotting and bleeding which the nurse line nurses kept saying was just my lining shedding due to the hormone levels of the IUD running out. WRONG!
It took two painful transvagaginal ultrasounds to find the IUD because I have a large subchorionic hematoma. Although I had felt the strings the week or so before I guess my changing uterus had moved it so they couldn't be seen. The OB was able to use a forceps to remove it and it did not cause a miscarriage. Two OBs basically laid it out that I was going to miscarry, which frankly, I was hoping for. I have two DDs ages 7 and 5. I'm 37, DH is 47 and has health problems related to a fall two years ago. I was actually planning on getting info for sterilization at the appt. I just can't believe this. I'm so mad about the Mirena fail and even though I keep having large bleeding episodes the baby keeps hanging in there. I'm worried that if I lose it I'll feel guilty that I didn't want it but I'm also nervous about having a baby and hoping that I don't resent it and that I love it as much as my other kids and that I am even capable of doing this all again! It is such a mental kick in the head. I've been so excited to relaunch my business and find myself again this fall when DD#2 starts kindergarten.
I'm 10 weeks now. I was 6 when I found out. I've basically been laying around since then. I have pain in my side and whenever I walk around much or try and go downstairs to do laundry I have hemorrhaging.
I don't know what I'm asking for here, just releasing, I guess. Thx
