Saturday during the day, I did some minor housework, and later attended my best friend's shower. I came back overjoyed b/c we had talked so much about the babies (she too is having twins). DH and I caught up on our days, and I went in to the bathroom; that's when our lives seemed to almost fall apart.
There was blood everywhere! I ran out crying and screaming hysterically to DH. He had been working on the yard all day, so he was full of dirt. He tried to calmed me down, but that was impossible. I came back in to clean myself, and told DH we had to run to the hospital. He took the fastest shower ever, which I called my RE on-call. By the time we go to the hospital (me still hysterical), RE called back and said to go home and visit her office Sunday AM, but not to wait at the hospital.
I looked at Dh and told him I couldn't bear being 12 hrs w/out knowing what was going on, so we checked in to the ER. I was seen by a nurse w/in 20 min, and they started to run b/w, and quickly put me in a private ER room. Then the wait began, and the prayers continued. We had no idea what to expect... all we did was fear for the worst.
During our time there, I went through 4 maxi pads and passed a few clots. 4 hours later, doctor finally came in but still no sign of an ultrasound, and all he would say is "m/c." Shut up man, just bring in the machine! Well, by this time, it is almost 2AM, so we decided to just go home and go to RE office in the morning. He did do a pelvic exam and did note the cervix was closed... and meantime, I never had any pain/cramps. I was optimistic, but still wanted an answer!
As you can imagine, not much sleeping was done overnight. When I woke up, there was no more blood. By 9AM, we were at the RE's office, and I was in a few minutes later. And we quickly saw the 2 sacs, and a 3rd sac?! Turns out the "3rd" sac was a huge blood clot! The clot was causing all the bleeding! It is still there and it should pass on its own, so I am expected to continue bleeding, but haven't seen any since Saturday.
In the meantime, I am on "bedrest" for the week. No work for me. I return on Friday for another ultrasound. During treatments, I was taking baby asprin to increase circulation, but apparently the con is that it can cause clots. Doctor wasn't overly worried about it, as it does happen (not unheard of), but she doesn't want to risk the babies, which is why I need to take it easy this week... and obviously stop the asprin!
Everytime Dh thinks about it, he gets all emotional! He comes over and hugs / kisses me. He even started to cry in front of his cousin when rethinking what he said was "all the blood down my leg (as I showered) I thought it was a m/c!" Poor thing.
If you made it this far, thanks!
