10w0d

This post contains some TMI/graphic material...read w/ caution. This post is more for my recording of what happened.

10:00pm ~ inserted 2 cyto*tec

12:21am ~ started to bleed

1:00-3:30am ~ started passing clots and what I believed was my baby, the toilet water was full of blood so I could not see what came out.

Unable to sleep most of the night due to all the blood loss, allergies, and asthma. Took a Bena*dryl and 6 Tyle*nol.

3:30-7:30am ~ Slept on and off

7:30am ~ Used the bathroom, no clots coming out, but clotty pieces when I wiped. Fell back asleep.

8:00am ~ Woke up to loud LOUD thunder and lightening. My mother up above had the heavens crying and mourning our loss.

12:00pm ~ Arrived at my appointment. I was asked if I had started bleeding, and I said yes and that I had passed a lot. Off to the u/s room. Per u/s I passed my baby just as I thought. My lining is 14-15mm, so I will be bleeding for a while.

No need for D&E. On one hand I am relieved b/c I would have had to do it w/o anesthesia. On the other hand I am sad b/c the baby can not be sent for testing.

I was given my RhoGam shot and a lab form for RPL testing.

When AF comes I will have a hysteroscopy.

I called the lab and they said the following test are included in the panel:
Glucose
Protein
RH
ABO
ANA (antinuclear antibody)
Prolactin
Insulin
Chromosome
Lupus Anti-Coagulant
Factor V Leiden

I am very relieved to be having these test done.

I am so sorry about your losses. They never get easier...

I've had many m/c's, and am pregnant again with a more positive potential this time. Please contact me if you'd like to know my RPL list of bloodwork done in the last two years. It is extensive but may help...

Heather said...

I'm so sorry.

Sorry. I hope the tests give you the answers you need.

Thalia said...

So sorry to hear about your loss.

That panel should also include MTHFR and Anti-phospholipid antibodies. Don't know what ABD is, sure it's not a mistype?

A Decade of BFNs said...

i believe the MTHFR is included in the chromosome test...i'll call the re tomorrow to double check

it's the lab's preprinted form...not sure if its a type as the rep on the phone read it as ABD as well...

Michele said...

I'm so sorry mate. It never gets any easier.

I think the hysteroscopy and the tests are a great idea. (I did them too). I just wish you didn't need them.

Please look after yourself ...
