I miscarried today at 7 weeks. However, I have been in miscarriage limbo since last Wednesday and I can honestly say this has been one of the worst weeks of my life.
I really only had symptoms for like a week (slight nausea, hot flashes and insomnia). Took a HPT on 7/2 and it was positive. The doctor confirmed on the 7/7. I spotted from 7/5 til 7/10 and then it stopped. My doctor said it was old blood.
Then, like an idiot, I went and got a pedicure last wednesday and used a vibrating chair. Started spotting that night and never stopped. It was heavy that Thursday but only brown blood. I called my doctor who said she was more concerned about the spotting from 7/5 til 7/10. That pissed me off as I told her about it at the time.
Well, they do a blood test last Friday. I should be 6 weeks but HCG onlh 1578. They do ultrasound and sack but no baby. Tell me I could be earlier than I think and that the baby could be viable or I will miscarry. I read all these posts where people were bleeding and HCG is low and baby is ok so I had hope. I have an ob-gyn appointment set up for 8/2 but lost the baby today.
So many thoughts. I know the baby probably stopped developing a whiile ago but part of me thinks its my carelessness in using that chair. I also had a UTI when I first found out I was pregnant and took 5 days of pregnancy safe anti-biotics. I would never forgive myself if it died because of my carelessness.
I am joining weight watchers today cause I am on the plumpish side and want to be healthy for another baby. I just feel so sorry for this little being who will never know life or us and I will never know them. Sorry, I will get over it.
The worst part is I keep on thinking that maybe its jsut a blood clot and Im still pregannt. Funny how hope is so slow to fade away.
