I had my second miscarriage on the 25th.
I went to the doctor on Monday because I thought I had a stomach bug. She did a normal pregnancy pee test and also a blood test to check for pregnancy and other things. The pee test came back negative, so I thought nothing of it and she said I probably just had a stomach bug or was having a reaction to a new medication I was on. She recommended fluids and to keep an eye on the effects of the new medication.
That Tuesday I got what I thought was my period. It was about 16 days late, but I thought nothing of it because I've had irregular cycles and the new medication I was on was said to make my cycle wacky. I was cramping horribly and clotting pretty bad, but like I said thought nothing of it.
On Thursday my doctor called me back saying the blood test she took confirmed I was pregnant and my beta level was 72. She said I was probably in the very early stage of pregnancy. I then told her that I had been clotting and bleeding since Tuesday. We discussed my options, and she told me it seemed as though my body was going through a natural miscarriage and to come back on Saturday to see if my beta levels had dropped.
When I went back Saturday the levels had dropped to 24. I'm supposed to go back on Tuesday to make sure the levels are below 5.
I feel so stupid. My best friend kept telling me that I should take a pregnancy test when I started throwing up (which I thought was a stomach bug), but it felt nothing like it did when I was pregnant last time (which ended up in a miscarriage).
I told my boyfriend, and he was comforting, and told me not to feel bad about the situation. I then told my best friend and she was horribly rude, telling me that this wasn't like the last time I miscarried (since I knew I was pregnant for about 2 weeks then) and that it was my fault for "spreading my legs and having unprotected sex". Ummm...what? Thanks for being that shoulder I could cry on, best buddy.
I don't know what to feel, at the moment I'm just numb. I'm not going to even bother telling my family because I don't want anymore harsh judgement.
Anyways, thanks for listening...if you got this far, bless your heart.
