Mtx shot tomorrow — The Bump
Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Mtx shot tomorrow

Well I caved and decided to go ahead and "speed up the process" if you will. I reviewed and email from my OB today ....subject line; failed pregnancy....... My heart instantly stopped. As if she has to remind me that there is no longer a life growing inside me. I decided to go ahead and make an appointment for the methotrexate shot. I am going in tomorrow and I'm terrified of what to expect after reading some of your posts. If any of uou has and advice on tjings to donor what to expect id gladly accept it  I just want to grieve and move on.  To add insult to injury, a coworker of mine had her first prenatal visit today and announced her due date. Would have been the exact date as me. I had to run to the bathroom to cry. I have been going in and oh of being angry to sad to depressed to feeling alright about it. I just feel so bitter towards all of these woman who accidentally got pregnant or didn't want to be. I feel so instantly guilty for feeling this way I find myself prayin for these woman to have healthyd pregnancies. I'm confused I guesb 

Re: Mtx shot tomorrow

  • Sorry for all of the typos. My new phone is strange and what can I say.... I worked 24 hours in two days. 
  • Just wanted to say that I am really sorry about your loss and also about the e-mail from your doctor.  Very ugly words to read in a subject line.  I am so glad my doctors called.  I never heard the words failed pregnancy.  Its so sad.  I had a methotrexate shot and the side effects were horrible, but I got through it  Hopefully you have someone to take care of you at home and some pain killers.  Also don't feel guilty about how you are feeling.  I am not visiting friends with babies or kids right now.  My partner doesn't understand but I don't want to be reminded of what we have unsuccessful about and my losses.  I am refusing to feel guilty about how I am feeling and in order to take care of myself I am going to do what I need to do, so one day I can visit with them.  

    Good luck with your shot.  Hugs :)

  • I'm so sorry. I did have the mtx shot and didn't have many side effects. The day after I had some nausea that went away after breakfast. Day 2, a little nausea and a back ache. I was told I could take Tylenol. Then I felt fine. day 5 and the bleeding started and lasted about 10 days. Lots of clots for me. At one point I had a couple bad cramps that lasted a few minutes and ended up passing a huge clot, placenta maybe. Sorry if it's tmi. Not all are bad stories :) and I only had one shot. Hope all goes well.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss. ((hugs))

    I only needed 1 shot of MTX, and I didn't really have any side effects other than some mild abdominal pain and a little bit of soreness at the injection site. I bled a lot more than I expected though, including passing a very large clump of I don't know what. Everyone's body reacts differently. My dr said that some people don't bleed at all, and some bleed a lot. I hope the first shot works for you and that you can get some resolution. GL.

  • Thank you ladies for all of the support and kind words. I'm so nervous about today and more nervous at how long it will take to be able to start trying again. I heard 3 months is a good amount of time to wait.
