I was on vacation in Missouri (from Ohio) last week with my husband visiting his family, on the border of 6-7 weeks along in my pregnancy. I was taking it easy and it was very low key and relaxing. I started bleeding the 4th day of vacation and went immediately to the ER. It wasn't spotting, definitely bleeding.
They ran urine and blood tests that came back with supposedly favorable numbers, and I even saw the gestational sac in the ultrasound. The weird thing is the doctor told me I was supposedly only 5 weeks along not 6-7 and diagnosed me with implantation bleeding saying everything was fine despite the amount of blood I had already lost. Before I even left the ER I passed a very big clot that was bigger than a large peanut shell. Again the doctor assured me everything was fine that clots like that were typical of implantation, but to follow-up with my ob/gyn at home once I got back.
I continued to bleed and pass clots for 5 more days and voiced my concerns, but was told not to worry that everything would be fine. I went to my doctor as soon as I got home and was diagnosed with a complete miscarriage: uterus completely empty and urine test was negative.
I feel like the doctors in the ER in Missouri lied to me. If I was measuring 1-2 weeks earlier than what I should have been and was passing clots, why would they insist everything was ok? If they were trying to "save" my vacation, it didn't matter. Once the bleeding started, my fun on vacation was basically over because I was worried the rest of the week because I had a gut feeling things were not "fine" as the doctor promised.
This would have been our first baby and we were so excited. It was horrible calling our parents and siblings yesterday to say we lost the baby... And it felt like an even bigger slap in the face because the doctors initially assured us everything was fine and normal. It gave us false hopes for our little one.
