i'm out.

Very tough weekend for us.


Saturday afternoon I started bleeding and passing large clots. I lost so much blood that I was nearly passing out. Finally at 1am Sunday I knew things were really bad when I started almost blacking out. DH took me to ER where my blood pressure was down to 70/45 and hemoglobin dropped to 7.


I was transferred by ambulance to a bigger hospital where my OB practices. There was no gestational sac by the time I had an ultrasound so there may or may not have been a baby at all. They are chalking it up to blighted ovum. I finally had a D&C completely knocked out (thankfully) about 10am and was released by noon. 


I am feeling overwhelmingly grateful to be alive. I thankfully didn't need a blood transfusion either.


I wish all of you wonderful ladies success in your pregnancies and beyond!  Given my ripe old age of 43, I need to be done. Still coming to terms with that!  


Lots of love,

I am so terribly sorry for your loss.  I experienced something very similar with  my 7th loss in March, tons of blood loss by the time I got in.  It's hard enough having to lose a baby, and worse with the physical trauma as well.  Praying you heal well, physically and emotionally.

So sorry mama. I also lost baby last week and had surgery on Tuesday. Sending you hugs.

Thank you so much ladies. I thought I was doing ok, but I feel like I let my baby down...that my body failed him/her. I just want to go to bed and hide under the covers.


I am praying for every one of you in this DDC that your pregnancies go wonderfully, and for the other ladies that have just experienced loss too, please know you are especially in my prayers for comfort.
