What to do when you think you're m/c- ing

So on Sunday I woke up with cramping.  After a trip to the bathroom it was pretty obvious I was miscarrying from the amount of blood and tissue - I even saw a small sac that I am pretty sure was the baby. I was devestated but didn't know what to do.  My doctor's office was closed and I hadn't even met the OB yet.  I felt like I should just stay home and wait it out because I was pretty sure that there was nothing that could be done.

In the end we decided to go to Emerg just in case there was a chance that something could be done to save the pregnancy. I should add that we live in Canada and there is no cost associated with this.  In emerg they ran bloodwork and gave me an ultrasound which confirmed that the uterus was empty. I'm glad we went because we got our answer quickly and the staff in the hospital was great. What did you do?

  • So sorry to hear about your loss. I was kind of in the same boat. I was 9 days away from my first dr's appt so I tried to have it moved up bc of some early brown spotting...but when it turned to blood they took me the next morning, and confirmed it.

  • I went to the walk in clinic the next day (Sunday).  I followed up with my doc on the phone Monday and Tuesday in the office.
