Over the weekend had a miscarriage. 12 week scan on Friday showed pregnancy had stopped progressing at 8 weeks, and we were waiting for Monday to be assessed so a management plan could be determined.
I ended up haemmorhaging badly and needing an emergency D & C. I had gone into shock and my blood pressure dropped to 54/something. I was still conscious but could feel my extremities shutting down. I ended up with 3 anaesthetists because they needed someone to hold my throat to stop food coming up as they couldn't wait for what I'd eaten earlier in the evening to pass. I was given blood transfusions and needless to say it was very frightening, for myself and my husband.
The dr was very relaxed the next day about it being an abnormal event and that I can start TTC another baby as soon as I get my next period. For me I can't help but feel like I'm at risk of haemmorhaging and really don't want to experience what I went through again.
But I really want more children, and aren't quite ready to give up on that dream either.
Does anyone have any advice for overcoming a frightening medical emergency? I know some time passing will help, and my focus is getting fit and well again before thinking about TTC. I also will have a check up with my GP and have some questions for him, but just thought some ladies here might have some good ideas and thoughts?
